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.

Good light-bodied Belgian ale. Gets better in every sip and gets more character when warmer.

mateuszk (1689) - Poznań, POLAND - AUG 25, 2016
Bottle. Pours clear golden white big white head. Aroma of herbs, flowers and some apricot. In taste quite sweet, mix of fruity-floral notes. Medium body, high carbonation, quite bitter in the finish. Very good Belgian ale.

Draught at Delirium Monasterium. Enjoyed as a digestive, another classic solid Belgian strong, goes down dangerously too well.

Fules (727) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - AUG 13, 2016
Monumentális, hófehér, örökké tartó hab, világos borostyán szín. Belga ale-s illat, némi fehérboros beütéssel. Kissé édeskés, belga sörös, gyümölcsös ízvilág, fehérboros, pezsgős aromákkal. Testes, pezsgősen szénsavas, enyhén keserű. Nagyon finom, jó egyensúllyal rendelkező sör.

mice (782) - FINLAND - AUG 10, 2016
Kullankeltainen, aavistuksen samea olut valkoisella, höttöisellä ja pitkään kestävällä vaahdolla. Tuoksu hyvin mausteinen ja makeahkon sitruksinen. Maku todella monimuotoinen, löytyy mielenkiintoista mausteisuutta, hedelmää ja maltaisuutta sekä sitruunaa. Täyteläinen suutuntuma. Hieno tekele.
