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.

Transferring from old rating system. I think I had on tap. That’s why maybe my notes were on a low level.

@ Eddan 16-12-3: en lätt och len öl med små toner av kola. Annars lite blek tycker jag.

Samuel214 (1362) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 26, 2016
Flaska från Galatea, privatimport. Provning med Nerikes Ölsällskap, tema amerikanska tungviktare, del II. Flaska från augusti, 2014. Mahognybrun med litet vitbeiget skum. Söt, maltig doft med mycket torkad frukt, övermogna äpplen, lite nötiga inslag, en aning boozy, kandisocker. Något större i kroppen. Söt men inte supersöt. I smaken framträder lite mer rostade och lätt syrliga toner som balanserar upp sötman fint. Tung, maltig, men samtidigt elegant. Känns som den jämnat ut sig något av åldern.

wrlangin (226) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - NOV 18, 2016
750 ml bottle from Hawthorne Cellars. Pours orange-amber with very small cream-coloured head. Aroma is yeast and dark fruit. Flavours are dark fruit over a malty base. A bit less fermentation than I would like, but otherwise very, very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
