wimpie133 (380) - Brugge, BELGIUM - NOV 16, 2010
Bottle, 33 cl. Brown beer, small white head. Aroma of malts, light caramel and sweet. Taste is malty, sweet and light caramel, watery texture, only at the end some hops and light bitterness come to the foreground in the aftertaste. Not really a ’grand’ cru. Petit cru would be better.

Holy (833) - GERMANY - SEP 16, 2010
0.33L bottle. Chestnut brown color with white headthat quickly leaves good lacing. Almost no carbonation to speak of - interesting. Smells mildly sweet and bitter and tastes the same. Light caramel, slight bitterness but no flavors to encourage a second taste. Watery towards the end. Proves that anyone can put Grand Cru on anything.

Embrouille (2826) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 30, 2010
Bottled 33cl. Courtesy of Saarlander. Sourish, malt accented and mediocre. Definitely not a good beer. Thanks Aaron!

hayduke (3342) - Eureka, California, USA - JUN 14, 2010
From a bottle at dinner in Vianden,, this Luxembourg this poured a pale copper color into the ceramic mug so head and lacing were hard to determine. Medium body and smooth mouthfeel. Flavor is of caramel malts and grassy hops, and the finish was long and bitter.

altonbrownd (3735) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 8, 2010
Bottle at Delirium Cafe. Clear brown with medium, rocky head. Watery and malty nose. Sweet, malty taste. Malty finish. Not bad. First one form the Duchy!

330ml Bottle - Copper/dark amber with a foamy head. Malty and fruity aroma with hints of caramel and raisins. Sweet and fruity taste with dried fruit, caramel and some nutty hints. Rather enjoyable and easy to drink.

Mklein818 (172) - Etterbeek, Virginia, BELGIUM - NOV 8, 2009
Not much is grand about this offering--it’s an improvement over the basic inbev-commodity pilsner that is produced under the Diekirch brand, but it is a bit lacking in taste and strength to make it worth an effort to find. A faint sweetness is really all that distinguishes it, oh yeah, and a ceramic-topped bottle and ceramic mugs.

DruncanVeasey (7134) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2009
Fliptop courtesy of the ever-generous Ma and Pa Jenner. Wisp of bathsuds over brilliant amber-bronze, collapsing to nothing. Slight vegetative aroma with caramel, garden hop, faint gravy, leaves and metal...maybe a dusting of coriander. Caramelised John Smiths banality beyond (not that I’d know); chocolate spread on cardboard, brown sugar, wholemeal crumbs. Easy to knock back and not technically a bad beer, just bland, sugary and embarassed by the Echt Veldensteiner Landbier I just saw off. Weakest Grand Cru in the history of beer?
