Never had a Grand Cru before, I was impressed. Cloudy golden in color. Small tight head. Spicey/hop nose. sweet start with a hint of spices. Middle is tingley and "alive" with flavor. Dry finish. Not too shabby.

Bursting with sweet and spicy flavor. Rich and tasty, excellent by itself or with one of BJís famous pizzas.
