COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
Grand Cru is a dark chestnut-colored Belgian-style Ale with vibrant fermentation aromas of fruity esters and spicy phenols. A sweet caramel malt, raisin, and plum-like character combines with the complex fermentation profile of our Belgian yeast strain and hints of bittersweet chocolate in the finish. Its full body and velvety mouthfeel make for a slow and satisfying drinking experience. Grand Cru is meant to be savored and will age nicely.

Scent of fruitiness and spices. Dark fruit, lightly spiced, caramel and raisins in a little scent. Okay bitter, almost a little sour and fills the upper part of the mouth for a long time. Had higher expectations of this beer. OK to drink. Bottled 1 August 2014. Follow me @ Kung av l @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
