Bottle. Pours an unclear brown beer with a beautiful off white head on top that lasts during the entire drinking experience. Aroma of apples, Belgian yeast, dark fruits, kandi sugar. Flavor is nice and sweet, fruity and has some age in there. Might even have some oaky notes in there as well. Great balance, great drinkability. Smooth sweet finish. Alcohol is well hidden. Good stuff.

[ Keg ][ 4oz ][ Green Flash ][ $1 ][ Taster ][ 11.22.14 ]
>> Murky maroon pour with 360 yellow lacing. Nose is soy, dates, esters, old fruit, extreme esters verging on rotting fruit. Taste is spiced Abbey Dubbel, cinnamon, some butyric harshness, cinnamon bread. Creamy mouthfeel, full bodied. Not bad though. Improves as it warms. Why this is marketed as "Dark Ale" is beyond as that could be anything, and given Green Flash’s portfolio the last thing I would think would be a Dubbel or Quad. So there you go, Green Flash’s Grand Cru is a dark Belgian ale.

"definitely a lot of ripe dark fruit going on here, as well as the yeasty flavor and nose. i have to say, when you hold it up to light it looks like diarrhea, but tastes much better."

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Deep brownish red pour with khaki head a half inch high. Somewhat sour, very malty scent. Spicy red hops, strong florals, and brown sugar. Low carbonation, creamy mouthfeel, dry tingly finish. Malty sweet taste with peaty and roasty/ashiness, stony (if that’s a flavor), carmel, dark fruit, fig perhaps, some melon. Taste like and american strong ale with lots of scottish/scotch influence.

Very rich, malty, dried fruit taste - lots of burnt raisins & cherries bouncing off the tongue. This is a true homage to the Belgium tradition with a beer that excretes rich Belgium Monasteries.

Appeared to work off of the palat recker recipe. Strong hop flavor with caramel malt flavor. To hoppy for a double. Strong ale work.

Bottle at Grand Cru tasting at Beer&Beyond shop. Hazy brown with a nice off-white head. Aroma - phenolic, yeast, dried fruits and hops. Sweet, dark fruits flavors, quite alcoholic, nutty and spicy with moderate hoppy bitterness. Medium-full bodied.
