The name "Grey Lady" comes from the nickname for the often-foggy island on which it is brewed. This hazy, Belgian-style Wit emits a complex nose with sophisticated notes.

Happy #WitbierDay, and with the oddball warm November day here, the day for a white ale couldn't be better. From a 12 ounce bottle, on to the beer:

Looking paler goldenrod in the glass, while on top rests a semi-creamy white head which shows some head retention. It smells okay, offering vague spices, though they don't smell like the traditional witbier spices. It smells closer to ginger ale, according to my nose. Yes, I'll check my nose after the review.

Weak. Grey Lady has a watery flavor, and even then it's not exciting. I don't know what I'm tasting at the beginning...it's spicy, but why am I thinking lime and chili? The base grains offer a little creaminess and sweetness, but also bring some rough edges to the palate. Vague bubblegum as well. The beer is light bodied with a somewhat creamy texture, which is sadly the best part of drinking this beer.

Let's forget about the Grey Lady and wish everyone around you a #WitbierDay.

this is hopelessly underrated. that, or the recipe has changed a lot over time, because this is a wonderful belgian wit, funky as heck, almost saison, even a touch of brett almost in the yeast profile, which makes the beer. but lemongrass and lemon verbena radiate in the nose and the taste too. faint copper hue to this pale yellow brew, head is short lived, but my pint glass might be a little greasy. the flavor is great, bright wheat malt base, and a fantastic herbal character, both hoppy and grassy and botanical like. its super carbonated, huge bubbles explode on the tongue, and the finish is about as dry as you can get. im not sure what more people were looking for in this, maybe body? its really light, so easy down as to be easier to drink than water on a hot day. the low abv makes this okay though, or at least it does for me. the infinite session beer, flavorful and dynamic, expressive and well crafted. cisco has always impressed me. everything i taste from them reaffirms my admiration for them, this is very unique as wits go and positively delicious.

A surprising gem. I enjoyed this one very much, especially considering the low ratings it receives. Interesting and tasty.
