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.

Tripplebrew (778) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - APR 10, 2013
Pours a hazy lemon yellow with a thick layer of frothy white head that slowly dissipates. Aroma is lemon, candi sugar, a bit of citrus and roasted nut.Flavor is earthy with notes of sugar, caramel, alcohol. Body is light and creamy with a lot of carbonation. It is palate coating.

Delft 11-10-2015 St. Feuillien Grand Cru. Mooie gouden kleur met witte schuimkraag. Veel koolzuur en daarom prikkelende smaak. Wat aan de bittere kant maar ik lees dat dit bier een complexe, intense smaak heeft. Ik vind hem echter lekker, maar vrij simpel qua smaak.

Forte carbonatation, goût fruité bien agréable suivit par une légère amertume assez sèche en fin de bouche, et conclut par une finale alcoolisée. L’équilibre est donc tout à fait correct pour un résultat carrément plaisant.

Goudblond bier met rijke witte schuimkraag die snel wegvalt. Aroma van citrus, graan, beetje vanille, honing, brood. Zacht biertje, begint beetje bitter door de hop maar gaat dan over in licht fruitig. Romig en vol in de mond. Op het einde proef je wel de alcohol. Veel carbonatie. Geen slecht bier maar mist net dat tikkeltje extra om een echte topper te zijn.

For starters, it has aromas of fruitiness simply pure. The first taste has a slight bitterness but holds you as the hops gave away and the beer goes to full balance. Incredible.

33cl bottle@home in Trappist glass@approx 10 degrees C. Pours clear golden yellow with frothy white head with good retention, clotting as it wears off. Belgian aroma of malt, European hops and yeast with a subtle spice and herbality. Clean, malty, very well balanced taste without any "funny stuff"...just clean malt, herbs, bitterness and sweetness (perhaps a touch too much). Aftertaste of BEER - malt and hops, bitternes, sweetness, grass, bread, bitterness. It is all there in well measured amounts. Good mouthfeel and warmth very present from the high ABV. I like this beer more and more as I slowly finish it. It is a well balanced, no nonsese strong Belgian Ale.

Aromas are primarily hops, a mild citrus fruit flavor. Malt is pretty subdued, though there is a touch of skunk. Color is a cloudy light amber with a large off-white head. Just slightly sweet; bitterness is moderate from the citrusy hops. Body is light to moderate; fairly thin texture; fairly lively carbonation; finish is fairly long and dominated by the citrus. Overall a good, though not great, beer. I like the citrus fruit, but there is not a lot of complexity and I could do without the skunk.
