Wow. The full spectrum. Slightly sweet grains, soft fruit, noticeable bitterness, candied sugar, citrus notes. Amazing and complex yet soft and drinkable. Grand Cru is no misnomer.

Nice beer: elegant in both aroma and taste. Maybe a bit too much carbonation. Will drink again though!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
11.2oz bottle, from the Dilly Deli, for $5. Shared with b3shine. Date on bottle reads 21/11/13. Totally hazy golden yellow color. Thin, sort of bubbly white head. Couple loose bits of lace. Caramel malt, belgian candy sugar in the nose. Smooth, soft, moderate strength carbonation. Lightly dry finish. More sweet taste, light spice. Hides alcohol decently well, but a little too belgian candy-sugar sweet for me. Alright grand cru. Nothing special. A lot of old hop / malty sweetness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle to snifter (shared by DrSilverworm). Looks solid; a cloudy gold with white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells sweet with notes of Belgian yeast and fruit. Tastes like it smells with a nice, lively mouthfeel. Maybe a touch of clove too. Enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (330 ml). From czar, thanks! Clear bright pale yellow with a small white head and some lacing. Aroma is of spices, alcohol, Belgian yeast and light sweetness notes. Taste is moderately sweet and yeasty with spices and alcohol. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Dry. Not bad, but boring. Balance could be better.

Bottle, bubley quickly diminshing head, qutie hazy deep yellow colour, cheesy nutty aroma with just a hint of citrus, flavour of peach, lemon, grapefruit and almond, medium bitter and just a bit too sweet. Nice and quite refreshing especially considering its ABV.
