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.

Pours clear golden color with small head. Aroma of fruits, belgian yeast and grass. Flavor of ripe fruits, honey notes and grassy hops, mild caramel also. The alcohol comes through a bit too much. Like a stronger version of Chimay Triple.

Clear light blond beer, white head. Not much aroma. Taste is nothing special, can’t really name anything. Body is nice, carbo too.

dutchbeerpages (1821) - Wilnis, NETHERLANDS - APR 30, 2012
This beer to me is somewhere between a normal pilsner and a triple. The head was gone and the pale yellow is a color I don’t particularly like, but the rest of the beer is good. I especially enjoy the nice smooth palate and the subtle grassy taste. Gives you a kick. Bottle from De Schans in Uithoorn.

bobaidan (527) - Southington, Connecticut, USA - APR 24, 2012
Pours slightly hazy yellow with a medium head of quickly dissipating bubbles. Aroma is unremarkable with a metallic note. Medium in body with a good amount of carbonation. Flavor us much better than the nose with Belgian candy sweetness and just enough alcohol bite to balance. Hops are barely present and only adds a hint of bitter.
