COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Travlr (11812) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 10, 2013
Draft at Beervana. Hazy pale yellow color, small white head. Aroma of mild citrus that was a bit overwhelmed by the barbecuing meat at the stall next door. Taste is sweet and sticky orange.

Rob_D_UK (782) - Surrey, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2013
Being from England I have good access to a lot of Belgian trappist beers and I have to say this is pretty good still. Pours a cloudy yellow with a white head. Tastes of banana and a hint of alcohol, Very nice.

On tap at Murray’s in Manly, April 2013. Hazy gold with a slight white head. Light coriander notes, some spice, citrus fruits, grainy malts and a hint of bubble gum, before a gentle finish. Good.

Appearance - Poor head retention, high carbonation, poor clarity, medium amber colour Smell - Fruity, banana, cloves, citrus fruit, candied orange, light alcohol presence Taste - Citrus fruits, lemon, orange & grapefruit flavour. Slight spicy hop profile. Tangy finish Mouthfeel - Light body, good carbonation, slightly bitter finish, lingering warmth due to moderate alcohol presence Drinkability - Summer sipper, pleasant well balanced Overall - Good beer, drinkable, lacks complexity of Belgians. Good on a summers day

Tap at the brew house. Pours a dark red with a small off white head. Nose is like a warhead so sour. Taste is horribly unbalanced too much sourness over powering everything else. Didn't enjoy this one ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very average beer. Taste is far too unbalanced; just isn’t that easy to drink.

This triple doesn’t taste as heavy as others but still has great full flavors. A good triple for the summer at the waters

jdpeebs (687) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 8, 2012
Had on tap and in the bottle. Pours a lovely golden amber colour with a thick white head. Hint of banana on the nose. Lovely biscuit malty flavour with a subdued hop bitterness on the finish. You can't taste the alcohol, even though it's about 8% alc. could be very deadly if you have a few. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught at Murray’s at Manly. Pours a cleat golden with a creamy smooth white head. Smells of phenols, clove and Belgian yeast. Tastes sweet, slightly medicinal, mildly bitter. Finishes medicinal.
