COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer can be deceptive. It is golden in color and light in body - but it clocks in at 7.5% abv! It is brewed with Belgian Pilsner malt, European Noble hops and a special Belgian yeast that produces a wonderful softness to the beer and imparts subtle grape, peach and apricot flavors. Our friend Adam Tolsma, the beer guy at Greenís Package Store, came down one day and brewed with us. A "Grand Cru" is what ever a brewer (or winemaker) thinks is his best offering. Since this was Adamís first - and probably only - beer we thought he should call it his Grand Cru!

garza (568) - Oslo (NO), Caracas (VE), VENEZUELA - MAR 3, 2011
Golden colour, profuse white head but deissapears in a while. Aroma of alcohol, freshness, sweet notes, hops and some yeast. Some acidity at start, medium sweetness in the taste. Good resemblance to a special belgian ale but kind of "thin" for my taste. Dry and light sweet after taste. Worth the try.

On tap, sampler, wheat aroma, a little spice, first sip is a bit watery, not horrible.

jhumphries69 (1034) - Tyrone, Georgia, USA - NOV 4, 2010
Deep golden pour. Fruity and malty aroma with a touch of pear and hint of soft fruit like banana. Flavor is malty rich with lots of fruit esters. Moderately dry finish with a good bit of malt sweetness. Medium-full body. Drinkable and tasty. Reminds me remarkably of a home-brewed Belgian Strong Golden Iíve made (Humpís Devilish Nectar).

ChainGangGuy (4376) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - NOV 2, 2010
Appearance: Delivered to our SkyBar patio table a clouded, lemon-hued body with an inch of snow white foam by fine streams of steady carbonation. Moderate lacing on the descent. Smell: Aroma smelling of cut orchard fruits, honeysuckle blossoms, and honey candy tossed with a dusting of finely ground spices and what smells at times as either cider or white wine. Taste: Amalgam of pale and pilsner malts, sweet pops of powdered sugar, and a prevalent floral presence. Vibrant fruitiness of crisp apples, pears, and even white peaches tossed with a $10 to $15 bottle of Sauvignon Blanc. The sweetness and fruitiness is rounded out by a robust spiciness. Lightly bitter. Peppery, warming alcohol tones. Lingers lazily on the sweet side until a second before the drying, fruity finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium-plus carbonation. Smooth, lightly creamy mouthfeel. Drinkability: Itís pleasant. A very flavorful drink, a bit like a sweeter, fruitier Duvel. Who the heck put this under witbier?

Cybercat (3331) - Georgia, USA - SEP 19, 2010
Comes out of the tap a hazy bright golden with a fine-bubbled off-white head. Malty, fairly sweet aroma has a hint of yeast. Flavor is malty and a little candy-sweet with a yeasty undertone. Edgy, fizzy texture leaves behind a good tingle and just a little sweetness.

aracauna (3084) - Georgia, USA - JUL 2, 2010
Spicy aroma. Sweet but crazy swirl of fruit, spice, and malt in there. Scuppernong finish. Nice.

DrinkEmUpJones (1062) - Georgia, USA - JUN 9, 2010
The appearance of this beer is an opaque lemoncello. Bright white lacing also makes this beer a beautiful thing to look at. The aroma is a light-medium quality with hints of lemon and tropical fruit. On the palate you get tangerine, banana, lemon, and macadamia nuts. There is a slight tartness up front with a lovely lingering finish. All in all a good drinking beer.
