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.

Medium to low bitterness, dry and toasty with a medium to medium low yeast contribution. Very high carbonation, dry and slightly warming. Good.

bonkiedeaap (264) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 13, 2014
Bottle from de Bierschuur in Poppel. The beer has a pale color and a large white head with a lot of bubbles. In the aroma are tones noticable of hops and the sweetness of fruits and some spring flowers. Very nice. The taste starts light and fruity to change after a while into a nice hop bitterness. The finish is hoppy and a nice intense bitterness rounds it off. A very nice strong ale which reminds me of a tripel. Very well done.

drfabulous (3999) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - SEP 1, 2014
12 ounce bottle from The Beer Trappe. Too much carbonation. But when it settles, flavor is really nice blend of yeast, apple, sweet, light hops. Really good.

TtV (71) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 7, 2014
Bottle 33cl. Hazy yellow with a small white top that fades. Aroma is good, somewhat sour. Taste has sourness but bitterness too. Lots of Co2 on the tongue. Not the usual stuff. Like it.

ABT_S54 (149) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2014
75cl bottle served in a De Dolle glass. Pours a straw colour with a nice (if somewhat short lived) head. Taste is extremely clean with a nice bitterness from the hops. Light mouthfeel and close to a tripel but notably better than their former effort. ABV is well hidden and feels like you could drink it for as long as the sun is out...
