COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Grand Cru is a speciality beer carefully crafted by Belgiumís 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 Cruís 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.

Defreni (2704) - Husum, DENMARK - DEC 21, 2011
Flaske: Gylden klar Ýl med et flot hvidt skumhoved. Dejlig karbonation, pŚ en klassisk belgisk blonde. Meget gśrdomineret men frisk. I det hele taget ryger denne farlige over 9% Ýl ned med faretruende hastighed.

ClubGonzo (4360) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 7, 2011
Bottle, from EtreGourmet webshop. Pours a slightly hazy light yellow body with a big white foamy head. Aroma is Belgian ale yeast, pale malts and hints of molasses and muscat grapes. Taste is Belgian ale yeast again, as a primary flavor backbone. Around it, alcohol and molasses flex their muscles in this very classic strong pale Belgian beer in the Duvel vein. Some metallic-grassy hop tones far in the back. Dry, boozy finish. Not bad, mostly boring. Iíve had "this one" before, many times.
