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.

Blonde forte au goût très prononcé. Surement une des meilleurs blonde à haute fermentation que j’ai goûté.

ShivanDragon (2954) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - OCT 22, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2012 Mijn vermoeden dat dit wel eens een lekker biertje zou wezen kwam uit.
Heelijk fris aroma van citrus, mandarijn, licht alcoholische geur ondanks de flinke alcohol.
Deze was in de smaak ook niet prominent aanwezig. Licht zoet, licht peperig, mandarijn, limoen,
mooie complexe body met licht bittere en fris zurige afdronk.
Uitstekend

Rune (10533) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 21, 2012
330ml bottle at Café Circa in Tromsø. Clear golden body. Cloudy last pour. Firm, chalk white head. Fragile lacing. Aroma of sweet fruits. Champagne-like fruity taste added by mild spices, yeasty dryness and alcohol towards the ending. Oily palate and soft carbonated. Has got its moments. 19.10.2012.

PotjeBier (2423) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 19, 2012
33 cl bottle @ home. Pale golden color. Snow white head. Aroma’s: malty, grainy, a bit cooked vegetables, with some sweetness and fruit retronasal. Flavor is medium sweet with a hint of acidity. High (and sharp) carbonation (foams in the mouth). Finishes slightly dry, with only a hint of bitterness.

Pours yellow golden with a medium white head. Slightly metallic nose, light malt, nicely focused. Light malt and some fruitiness in the mouth, some resiny hops. Surprisingly bitter, and a bit sweet, but needs a bit more body to hold the whole deal together. Delicate and Belgian.

beerbastard (840) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - OCT 11, 2012
Big fluffy white head, pale gold in appearance. Lite apples and pears in the nose. Nice mix of flavors, fruits, black pepper, and spices. Has a dryness thru out the whole experience. Clean dry finish. Thanks Reg!

Japalo (1693) - DENMARK - OCT 8, 2012
Bottle@home. One finger white foam. Straw yellow slight hazy. God malty nutty aromas compared to the light colour. More crisp than bitter. Delicate.

brugmanneke (283) - GERMANY - OCT 7, 2012
(33 cl bottle) Yellow colour, hazy, with a white head. Aroma: spicy, fruity (pears?) and yeasty, delicate hops, hints of bubblegum. Taste is light to medium bitterness, light sweetness. Medium to full body. Definitely walks in Duvel’s footsteps, and fills them quite nicely.

lrothc (36) - Vantaa, FINLAND - OCT 7, 2012
Pours to a very light golden colour with a nice white head. The head retention is good. The aroma is fruity and intense. The body is that of a typical Belgian strong ale, thick, slightly sticky and smooth. The taste is bitter-sweet, increasing in bitterness towards the finish. Long and complex hoppy finish.
