COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Belgian-style Grand Cru is a full bodied winter warmer. A slightly spicy aroma and flavors of dark fruit and caramel are harmonious with the classic Belgian-style finish. Part of our seasonal series, Mercy is available on tap and in six packs at your favorite Wisconsin craft beer outlet from mid-November through January-ish.

caramel, chocolate, deep brown color with no head, medium sweetness, thick feel, full body - this is one of my favorite beers from a too overlooked brewery. If you have the chance to try this on tap or in bottles don’t hesitate. Just a bit sweet and not roasty at all, this beer is begging for a snifter.

Tasted 1/3/09. 12oz bottle. Slightly hazy with an orange golden hue. Bubbled ring of off-white head. Sweet nose with hints of raisins, cinnamon, molassia and a citrus banana yeast character. Rather full bodied with a sweet malt character. Both the malts and the yeast offer sweet nuances. Flavors of dark berries and citrus, Belgian style yeast. Slight bitternessin the middle. Nice citrus zest. Sticky finish that lingers with a pleasant mix of cola and a touch burnt wood and caramel. Solid style and interpretation. Lotta respect for these guys. Another Ace.

Sweet smelling. Banana smell. Medium orange in color. Lots if flavor. Hints if banana with a rich caramel yeast flavor. Really tasty. Slightly expensive at $12 a sixer, but worth it. Buy it before its gone.

I had two of these, and wow, fantastic. Spice and nutty on the nose, with the palate being the same. A nice toasty sweet finish lingers around a while. The higher ABV is well hidden and makes this dangerous!

Ive been waiting a while to try this brew. Pours a semi translucent amber colour with a huge off white head. Aroma is beautiful, enticing with ripe cherries, raspberries and sweet rich caramel malts on the nose. Taste is flavourful with ripe fruit notes and a creamy mouthfeel.

Opaque orange with a thin off-white quickly fading head. Aroma of Belgian Yeast, dark fruits, sweet and toasted malts. Taste of sugar, toasted malt, fruit, mild citrus and spices. Not too much alcohol on the palate but noticeable warming effects afterwards. I haven’t had a whole lot of this style, but this was pretty good as far as beers go.

From the bottle, pours a clear crimson red with a thin bubbly white head. Some fruits, apples, caramel make up the aroma. Taste is what is expected form the aroma, flavors of caramel malt, a slightly spiced and bitter finish, with a smooth aftertaste. This is a pretty good beer.

Bottle bought in WI. Sweet candy cinammon spice aroma. Dark amber body with off-white head. Flavor of sticky sugary candy, yeasty bread notes and moderate spice to the flavor also. Thick almost like cough syrup. Although the beer was spicy, sweet and sugary it was acceptable on the palate unlike some other sweet beers that just destroy the palate.

"another newbie from pfoxyjohn...and another memorable one. a nice bready spicy sweet aroma greeted me upon the pour. nice looking cloudy dark amber. lots of dark fruit, plum, alchohol, a hint of spice and brown sugar in the flavor. nice n complex...n warming. body is almost sticky, but the carbonation cuts right through it. a nice, well done grand cru from WI."
