COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Gran Met (Grand Master) is a Flash of delicate flavors. This Holy Grail of Belgian styles is on for the Connoisseur of Craft Beer. We at Voodoo use a special technique of adding the beet sugar to the ale as it is fermenting to soften the alcohol flavor production. This helps in the delicate nature of this ale. We also use traditional brewing for the unique profile. We hop you feel that we are doing our best to honor this wonderful heritage.

Ingredients: Belgian 2 row, Belgian light candy sugar, beet sugar, Hallertau hops, and our house tripel yeast. 29 IBUs.

Aroma - caramel, spiced wheat, and subtle Belgian yeast. Appearance - body is hazed selective yellow, Head is about 1/2" white and fades quickly into a film. Taste - has a caramel-like malt, a slight vegetal note, and slight Belgian yeast. Palate - light body, thin feel, average carbonation, dry and somewhat sweet.

Poured into a snifter. 3.75 A: Murky orange brown color. One finger of white creamy head. Retention is about average and a short ring of lacing is left. 4.0 S: Really clean, which I love in Belgian beers. Sugary maltiness. Peppery yeastiness. Pie crust. A host of fruits including pineapple, peach, and even some plum/prune. 4.0 T: Taste is really good too. Again quite sugary with a bit of cracker/pie crust as well. Pepper and a hint of banana. Fruits as mentioned above. Booze is extremely well hidden, offering just a hint of warming on finish. 4.0 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation with a pleasant spritziness to it. Supremely smooth. 4.0 D: Very nice beer. Definitely recommended. ★ 719 characters DavoleBomb, Apr 02, 2015

Bomber. Nose mild sweet, great grainy-sunny golden Pils malt, though a bit more candy this time. Pours a clear orange, really vibrantly colorful and bright, with huge effervescent lines of carbonation and a foamy-rocky off-white head. Body is unfortunately and disappointingly light, somewhat strongly tangy with almost no bitterness, just a trace of pleasant but still vegetal hops. Bone-dry by attenuation but with some fruity sweetness accompanying the tartness – it’s major orange peel, perhaps into tangerine territory, candied. Malt is thin but peeks out occasionally with light hay and sunny grain. Very very faint banana. Very drinkable-digestible on the whole, strong alcohol very well tamed, no fuels or harshness whatsoever; soft and delicate. No spice, which I’d like in a tripel, and not the right kind of fruitiness for a BGSA (this is more like a wit in that regard). Still, a satisfying wildcard that defies hard-and-fast American style categorization, smooth and dangerously enjoyable if ultimately hollow in the middle; I think a great many wine lovers would enjoy this. Yum! [2015.12.14: 3.8]

A little surprised to read the reviews below me, wonder about quality and batch control. Mine was utterly clean and pretty well melded together, a seemingly rare experience.

12oz bottle. Allentown,PA. Cloudy pale yellow-orange. Aroma is fruity, heavy citrus, grainy, alcohol. Taste is mildly sweet. Alcoholic finish. Weak body for the style. Really unbalanced. Pretty disappointing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jsporrer (310) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 4, 2015
Pours a cloudy straw color with a thin white head. Some spiciness to the aroma. Flavor is mostly some clove but not much else. I was actually disappointed in this. I thought from the deScription it would have been much better. Not bad but not nearly up to the standards of a good Belgian ale. Fairly plain without any complexity.

Nice sweet and heavy belgian. Deccent hops and interesting use of sugars make this an enjoyable beer for me.

12 oz bottle from the six type sampler case. This was pretty good but overdone on the special flavors and sugars. Worth a try.

Pours a hazy gold with a thin white head. Aroma of banana esters, coriander, black pepper. Taste follows, very sweet and boozy.

JaBier (6101) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - AUG 5, 2015
Sample at Voodoo Homestead on 8/1/15. Hazy gold to amber pour with a medium white head. Aroma of sweet malt, banana and clove. Sweet malt and honey flavor with a banana finish.

60minuteman (1145) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 12, 2015
A murky copper color, some head. Wheat, zest, malt, alcohol presence. Flavor is almost crudely craft beer-like. Feels like they tried too hard on this one. Metallic overtones that throw it off. Good base of flavor though. Too much going on. Too sweet.
