Grand Cru is a speciality beer carefully crafted by Belgium’s St Feuillien Brewery. This extra-blond amber nectar masterpiece undergoes refermentation in the bottle, resulting in a beer endowed with unforgettable character. The secret lies in the unique combination of the most noble hops and the finest aromatic ingredients. Grand Cru differs from other beers in the range by its absence of spices. Its full, white head is light and frothy, and when poured it creates a subtle lace effect. The very pale colour of Grand Cru lends clarity and brilliance to its body.
Grand Cru’s delicate nose is a veritable cascade of hoppy aromas with hints of fruitiness coupled with subtlety and sheer richness.
When savoured, the first sip is light and intriguing. The next impression is one of a slight bitterness full of captivating nuances. When it hits the palate, Grand Cru creates a lingering moment of hoppiness, rounded off by an intense yet pleasant bitterness.

birra ambrata con una discreta quantità di deposito e una schiuma bianca a grana grossolana che però tende a svanire relativamente presto..aroma molto intenso e davvero piacevole che mi ricorda la hoegaarden gran cru..intensamente fruttato e lievitoso,in perfetto stile belga..davvero particolare (pesca,mela,agrumoso)..gusto più spostato verso il malto,ma con lieviti sempre presenti a fornire la componente dolciastra..piacevolmente luppolata devo dire..c’è ma non disgusta e non sconfina in una IPA,quasi al limite per i miei gusti..promossa!

eManu (498) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 26, 2013
From a 33cl bottle, pours a clear pale yellow with a big white head. Aroma of strong yeast, malts and citrus spices. Taste of malts, citrus, mostly grapefruits, yeast and spice. Strong body, with long lasting flavors. Light sweetness and nice malt bitterness. Very strong finish complex flavors.

Chudwick (2498) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - OCT 22, 2013
11.2oz bottle (29/12/2012) - pours gold with white head. Nose is grain, floral, and yeast galore. Sip adds booze, sugar and more grain. If it weren’t for the yeast, I’d think this is malt liquor. A little spice (pepper?) in the finish. So much for the absence of spice. Out of nowhere my three year old declares that this beer is stinky and she is sitting three feet from me. She requested a closer sniff and is going on and on about how stinky that was.

Une note faible mais parce que cette bière m’énerve. Une belle couleur blonde et une mousse qui tient peu. Alors oui cette bière est sympa l’amertume est intéressante blahblah Le vraie scandale dans cette bière, c’est lorsque l’on regarde la recette, eau (heureusement) malt d’orge (normal) houblon (encore heureux) mais qu’est ce que c’est que ce bordel, Vitamine C ???? Pourquoi ajouter de la vitamine C dans une bière, pour cacher un goût ? En ajouter un ? Bref une recette pareille n’est pas une preuve d’une grande bière !!!

A very nice strong Belgian beer. Light appearance, but with a forceful malt and spice character. Some subtle lemon, but more pepper.
