COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Golden, white head. Smells of malts, yeast esters, clove, spices and some hops. Medium sweet, quite fruity, melon or banana i would say, malts. Low bitterness. Quite easy drinking beer. Light and refreshing

Alcohol content is hidden well. Good frothy head, otherwise nothing else really stands out. Either very subtle or very well-balanced.

Habanero (2443) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - DEC 6, 2012
Bottled. Pours clear golden and a large, short living white head, leaving a fair lacing. Nose of yeast, caramel and spice. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry with alcohol notes. Medium to full bodied, oily texture and soft CO2. Nice indeed. ★★★★

grass, lemon, pepper, flowers and spice on the nose. This beer seems like a monster, tastes amazing. All the flavors meld into a floral mix of a carbonated burst of flavors that like; citrus, pepper, lemon peel, must. Very dry, it finishes so clean, what a bad ass beer.
