What is a grisette you ask?

A grisette is an all but extinct style of beer hailing from the French region of Belgium, Walloonia. The style was the favorite of miners of yore, and gets its name from the gray (gris in french) dresses the women serving the beer often wore. It's closest living relative is a saison.

The flavor is light, with a delicate body attributed to a subtle acidity from the yeast followed by a rich, bready maltiness from a traditionally long boil. Yeast flavors include clove and slight banana notes, but are generally clean.
