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.

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

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.

On tap - Poured golden amber with a thin white head. Bubblegum and citrus/marmalade aroma. Taste dominated by the alcohol sweetness. Some malt and a sweet dry finish. Creamy mouth feel with light carbonation.

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 wasn’t 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. I’m 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 .
