Brewed with imported Belgian malts and a blend of exotic spices, BJís Grand Cru has a malty character with a whirlwind of fruit and spice flavors. First brewed to celebrate the new milennium, BJís Grand Cru has been a seasonal tradition ever since. This Belgian-style amber ale is bottle-coinditioned and flavorful enough to age in the bottle for many years. Like a fine wine, the beer will change over time as some flavors mellow while others become more pronounced. For optimal aging, we recommend that you store BJís Grand Cru for at least one year at between 55 and 65įF. Or enjoy it now!

bhensonb (14956) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 2, 2008
10.4% version at the Sacramento venue. Aromas of orange peel, spice and candi. Golden color with a creamy white head that laces somewhat. Medium bodied with creamy carbonation. Flavor is sweet (not quite caramel) malt and candi with a little citrus or more likely cardamom; some light stone fruit. Heat in the throat. Noble hop comes forth as it warms in the finish. Smooth, spicy, fruity finish. Tasty, but not alive. Went well with blackened chicken.

djd07 (13989) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 5, 2010
10th anniversary edition. Pours a very cloudy orange gold with a small frothy white head that leaves good sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is a clove and banana with citrus zest. Medium mouthfeel with a dry malt with orange peel and clove with a nice dry finish. Hides the alcohol well making it easy to drink. A very good belgian strong ale from BJs.
