Description 

Available in the USA in 1/2 bbl Microstar Kegs, Grisette Blanche belongs to the rich family of Belgian White beer: light character, gentle flavor and aroma. It is therefore very refreshing in the summer. However, it remains a full-bodied, savoury beer offering lots of contrast. Its head is typical of wheat beers—creamy and compact—with an opaque, hazy appearance.

Grisette Blance Bio is a Witbier, BJCP Category 24A.  It pours hazy and deep gold in color, with solid white head.  Coriander, orange peel, and citrus fruit are the noticeable aromas and together create a lightly sweet smelling character. 

This beer's flavor is spicy throughout, which is a pleasant surprise given the absence of this characteristic in the aroma. It also has a light citrus taste, again with a lightly sweet impression, but feels very well attenuated. With its highly carbonated and well attenuated body, this beer has a champagne-like dryness, sting, and feel.  Given this beer's small format bottle (25cl), it makes for a quick, spritzy refreshment.
