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.

Echon (310) - Århus, DENMARK - MAR 22, 2016
Pale amber strong ale, with a slightly fruity and sour aroma, and a rather intensely spicy and malty flavour. Alcoholic finish, and typically belgian prickly carbonation.

poech73 (349) - Braine, BELGIUM - MAR 19, 2016
Triple bien dans la tradition forte en alcool, en sucre maltée avec de la levure. Rien de surprenant au nez: beaucoup de douceur maltée avec de la levure une épicée sans amertume. En bouche, de fait, la gorgée se révèle fort douce quasi soyeuse, descend dans le gosier avec un petit mielleux accompagné d’une saveur citronnée à la coriandre. Petite astringence en finale fort légère comme il se doit.

330ml bottle. Golden yellow in colour with a very large and long lasting white head, excellent lacing. The aroma is of yeast, citrus, fruit, some candy. The flavour is lightly sweet, floral and citrus, some honey, lots of yeast and candy, some alcohol. Sweet mouthfeel, medium/light body, high carbonation. Finishes sweet, yeasty and quite warm at the very end. Pretty good, lacking a bit of body.
