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.

Jessop (207) - 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.

Was happy with this beer. Left a good head with lacing on the glass, smelt yeasty with some small amounts of spice. Tasted a bit buttery but enjoyable and while the alcohol was noticeable it wasnít overpowering. Nice finish. Would buy again

From a bottle. Pours a hazy golden yellow. There is a reasonable amount of head at first, but due to the large bubble size, it quickly disperses. The aroma is the best part. It smells like a spicy Belgian strong ale. You have the usual Belgian yeast esters (banana, raisins, grapes) backed by a delicious smelling creamy malt. The aroma is also fairly spice, reminding me of a Christmas ale with cloves and maybe a hint of cinnamon, with even a little floral flourish at the end. There is a hint of tartness, reminiscent of apply cider. The taste, at first, is nice. It starts as a warm, yeasty raisin bread. The hops emerge pretty quickly, though, and add some spiciness as well as a nice wholesome vegetable flavor. Next comes the tartness from the nose. Though initially refreshing, I soon found something a bit off about it, and reminded me of sour milk. Iím familiar with the pleasant funkiness of Belgian sours (ever the Gueuzes), but this was not of the same variety. Honestly, once I noticed, I could find traces of it in the aroma and the rest of the taste. The palate suffers from overcarbonation. The beer stands at 8.8% and this style is usually heavy bodied, but the carbonation distracts from that .

fletchfighters (1063) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 29, 2011
Appearance- poured a clear, honey gold color with a short lived white head. Good retention and better life in head when swirled. Aroma-- Toasted bread with banana, clove, spice and a bit of pepper. Good nose but a little soft. T-- Stale, salty bread. A Little prickly on the tongue. P-- Fairly carbonated, medium to full bodied even with the higher carbonation. A lot of bread and in the background white grape and peach. O-- Not bad, would consider buying again. Well hidden ABV and pretty tasty really. Good effort at a Belgian style.

maneliquor (3067) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 7, 2011
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours a cloudy golden with a small white ring as the head. Good lacing. Loads of yeast and biscuit on the nose with a touch of spice and pepper. Alcohol warmth comes through on this one. Oranges and buttery shortbread in the taste. Not too shabby

Ungstrup (29224) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 20, 2010
Bottled. An unclear amber beer with a thin golden head. The aroma has notes of oxidation, malt, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, metal from the alcohol, and oxidation.

mkel07 (3339) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - NOV 19, 2010
330ml bottle. Murky dark honey colour with a decent white head that clings to the glass. Spicy aromas of pepper with some fruit, pear maybe, coming along for the ride. Initial flavour is good with a silky mouthfeel and strong alcohol taste that lasts in the mouth.
