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.

Hazy yellow, thick head. Aroma is soft (due to the large head). The alcohol really comes through, typical of strong belgian ales.

Bottle 330ml from the Grand Epicerie, Paris. Nice and strong, a bit too sweet for my taste. Aromas of caramel, honey, citrus, and hint of alcohol. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness, and long length. Palate is creamy, and full bodied. Yellow, with a thin head.
