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.

PapaVillum (656) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 13, 2013
33 cl, flaske, 9,5 %, nydt på Cafè Viking, Nørrebro i originale glas, 13. september 2013. Gylden og helt klar belgisk blonde med hvidt perlende,medium størrelse bobler, skum på ca. 2-3 cm. Duft af frisk frugt henad ananas, humle og blomster-agtig. Skummet lægger sig iøvrigt flot som et hvidt tæppe efter et par minutter, et par millimeter tykt. Fantastisk dejlig frisk smag med den snigende alkohol som "underlægningsmusik". Smagen er sødlig med afstemt bitterhed med sødmen som det første og bitterheden, som afslutning. Kulsyreindholdet er medium, måske lige over, men den passer meget godt til denne slags øl. Et rigtigt dejligt eksemplar af en blonde! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GregClow (2976) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 10, 2013
Bottle from the LCBO. Clear and bright golden with a creamy white head. Clean aroma with nice herbal hop character, some pleasant fruitiness (tropical cocktail, a bit of banana), hint of bready malt. Medium bodied, crisp. Flavour is quite fruity - mango, peach, orange - with mildly sweet malt, nicely balanced citrus peel bitterness (esp. as it warms up), and a slowly building but never overpowering boozy warmth in the finish. Lovely, elegant, and enjoyable to drink.

VT (1795) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 5, 2013
330 ml bottle. Pours a clear light gold with a thick, frothy, resilient white head. Aroma is old grains, lemon, earth. Flavor is very ripe pear, lemon, vanilla cake, white flour, yellow mango. Finish is lemon bitterness and green apple tartness. Lingering grains and lemon. Light to medium body, soft mouthfeel, weak to average carbonation. Excellent.

Bottle, Blauwe Hand Nijmegen. Hoppy without being too bitter. Fresh and fruity because of the citrus. Has a lemon undertone without tasting of washing up liquid!

madquacker (1072) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - AUG 24, 2013
Foamy and creamy and with all the blond characteristics with lots of high alcohol notes. Has a bit of a burn though over the citrus.

czar (5684) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 23, 2013
pours clear bright yellow with a ncie white cap, some retention and lacing. noble hops - lots, floral and skunky saaz, pale blond candi and booze - this mix suggested bretts at first. light buttery phenols, some spices, boozy - kind of apricot or mirabelle eau-de-vie. moderate carbonation, medium body - oily, silky, boozy short but assertive grassy-spicy finish. o-k non spiced belgian brew. still much prefer their spiced ones..

Migmar (252) - Espoo, FINLAND - AUG 23, 2013
Yellow and cloudy, short-lived big head. Aroma has herbs, honey and fruit. Dry, light bitterness, also some sweetness. Rather lively carbonation. Nice typical Belgian again.
