Murray's Grand Cru is a tripel made with an authentic Belgian yeast and pours a pale straw colour with a fluffy white head. Hints of banana and bubblegum, backed with dry-hopped spicyness of Hallertau hops, dominate the aroma and flavour, which is balanced by silky biscuity malt flavours. This intense ale finishes full-bodied with a mellow bitterness.

DeliriumT (469) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - FEB 4, 2016
Pours a thin golden colour with minimal head. Aroma of lemons, banana and sugar. Flavour full of bananas. Enjoyable fruity grand cru but lacking in complexity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Shark_Pants (578) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 14, 2015
Deep golden pour with a somewhat absent head. Aromas of hay and bubblegum. The taste has an overarching bubblegum sweetness but with a nice crisp underlying dryness, if that makes any sense. Medium bodied and spicy but the carbonation is a bit underdone. Big 8.8% booze is very well hidden. Well executed, if not overly complex, belgian interpretation that would benefit from stronger carbonation.

jmgreenuk (7088) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - NOV 14, 2014
Bottle at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a clear light amber with a frothy white head and a few bubbles. The aroma is bubblegum yeast, dry malt. The flavour is moderate bitter with a smooth yeast citrus biscuit malt, alcoholic bitter palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. I think these guys could show the Belgians a thing or two!

motelpogo (7705) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 9, 2014
on tap at the brewpub in bob’s farm. pale golden with a thin but lasting head; good yeast character in the aroma, some earthy spice; grassy hop character with plenty of warming alcohol showing even though it was served quite cold. one of the better australian belgian interpretations

Jado (755) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - JUL 1, 2014
From 330 ml bottle. Pours a hazy dirty gold with a thin soapy white head. Aromas of stewed apple, honey, flowers, crusty bread and a touch of orange. Taste starts out with some juicy cooked apple and pear with a touch of banana and some sweetness, ramping up to a firmer orange zest bitterness. More fruit and cinnamon spice towards the end with a long fruity finish. Some spice in the aftertaste. Not perfectly balanced but still pretty good.

Benzai (12596) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAR 13, 2014
Bottle (BBF 26 june 2011) @ weekly tasting shared by Martinus. Murky yellow color, immediately disappearing off-white head. Smell is weird, blossom and something I really can’t put my finger on. Taste lightly malts, perfume, old, overripe fruits and weird. Average body, fizzy carbonation. Not good.

LesArgen (304) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 14, 2013
The aroma is honey, spices, alcohol and ripe fruit with a little toast. A reasonable amount of hops provides some respite from the alcohol, which is very prominent in the mouth (even for this style). A good tripel but not a classic.
