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 brewery. Pours a nice clear golden amber with a nice fluffy white head. Aromas are quite sweet with lots of light fruit, mainly pear, and honey. Some typical belgium yeast character and some light biscuity malt sweetness. Very floral and good aromas. Flavour wise some light malt sweetness with plemty of fruity sweetness coming through. Finishes quite dry with some spice and a little alcohol. Nice beer.

Unique, if a little too straight forward. Lots of honey, banana and a bit of bubblegum with a nice body, but it never really develops or goes anywhere. A shame as it has a lot of potential.

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2010 One of the best beers that Murray has made (apart from his limiteds ie. endless summer). Caramel and bubblegum combined to make this a very tasty surprise when i visited the brewery.

Tap at the Local Taphouse (Melbourne). Not pretty, but very tasty. Aroma has apple, bubblegum, caramel, and spice. Taste is sweet, with bitter notes, and long lasting. Palate is silky, with a medium-to-full body, and a dry finish. Dark yellow, with a frothy white head.
