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.

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.

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

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

Jessop (206) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 18, 2012
Drank from brewery tap, It poured slightly hazy and had minimal foam that turned to nothing moments later. The aroma profile is pleasant and sports candi sugar, phenols, some hops, malts and some higher alcohols. The beer is resonably well balanced and has a lovely flavour profile, some residual sweetness is there as well as some bubblegum and the alcohol warms the palate on the way through.

Pours a yellow colour with a white head. Aroma is fruity, hops and spices. Taste is also fruity with banana, bubblegum and spices leading to a mellow bitter finish. Really nice.
