Bottle. Caffe Volo. Golden body, very small white head diminishes quickly. Alcoholic sweet malty aroma. Flavour is inappropriately over-run by the alcohol, with barely a glimpse of the underlying malt. Average palate. Disappointing.

NIce package; the ceramic bollte and swing top were classic. palate: fruity and hoppy with a splash of alcohol flavor on the backend. Over all a good drinking beer, with some class.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - MAY 22, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 24, 2004 Peachy golden body with a full, thich white head. Sweet smelling with light malts, lemony, citrusy sugar/hop. Taste is pleasant but not special. Ending is a bit drying. Not bad.

jonas (5594) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - DEC 13, 2004
Stoneware bottle Ashen slightly honeyish aroma. Golden, low on visible carbonation, lacing creamy head. A bit of fruit - orangepeel (including the bitter parts), hay, peppery, slight alcohol burn. Unfortunately also a slight gunpowder and veggie note. Medium body, oily mouthfeel. Not overly impressive.

This is known as St. Sebastiaan Grand Cru in its country of origin. Pale, drab amber colour; virtually no head, just some transparant bubbles. Quite alcoholic nose, and definitely some oxidation. Dull, lifeless sweetish taste, cookies, old sherry, oxydized. Thin body, flat as a pancake. A beer that hasn’t stood up to - what? Bad storage, transport, age ...? BBD is indecipherable. Will have to try again.

Looked flat from the start and it was. No carbonation and just to smooth. I guess the fanncy ceramic bottle does not work.

orange gold with a thin filmy head. no lacing. caramel, yeast aroma. light carbonation. yeast, spice, peach, and sugar in flavor. flavor is good but the softness of the palate makes it taste like juice. juicy and flat.

Embrouille (2819) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 12, 2008
Ceramic bottle 50cl. It pours a golden beer with a small off white head. The nose is rather sweet with notes of peaches, honey, coconut, soy sauce, tobacco and pine needles. Sweet bready taste with hints of apricots, peaches, spices (cloves and coriander) and tobaaco. Some soy-sauce like elements sneaking in accompanied by a huge amount of "le parfait" - not all that pleasant. The alcohol is well hidden. Strange mouthfeel. Grape juice-like. Unpleasant finish with hints of "le parfait". Not worth purchasing again. Very dissapointing.

Gypsy19 (726) - California, USA - OCT 27, 2009
Pours a murky copper brown with a medium whitish head. Aroma is of light fruits with alcoholic notes and cream. Fruity, hoppy flavor with a garbage dumpster flavor lurking within that throws it off. Thin, watery mouthfeel. Overall, fair. The fact that this is called a Grand Cru in some markets is as laughable as it is absurd.
