Grand Cru is a speciality beer carefully crafted by Belgiums St Feuillien Brewery. This extra-blond amber nectar masterpiece undergoes refermentation in the bottle, resulting in a beer endowed with unforgettable character. The secret lies in the unique combination of the most noble hops and the finest aromatic ingredients. Grand Cru differs from other beers in the range by its absence of spices. Its full, white head is light and frothy, and when poured it creates a subtle lace effect. The very pale colour of Grand Cru lends clarity and brilliance to its body.
Grand Crus delicate nose is a veritable cascade of hoppy aromas with hints of fruitiness coupled with subtlety and sheer richness.
When savoured, the first sip is light and intriguing. The next impression is one of a slight bitterness full of captivating nuances. When it hits the palate, Grand Cru creates a lingering moment of hoppiness, rounded off by an intense yet pleasant bitterness.

Bire blonde, qui ptille pas mal, rien qu louverture, pas trop de mousse mais pas mal de fines bulles. Bue assez frache, elle a une odeur assez sympa, un peu sucr, elle ptille bien en bouche, pas trop damertume, elle ne laisse pas un got transcendantal, mais rafrachit bien, ressayer temprature ambiante pour voir sil y a plus darome

huineman (656) - Madrid, SPAIN - OCT 23, 2016
2015 vintage, stored for six months after purchasing. 75 cl bottle, served in white wine glass. Pours sparkling pale yellowish golden with rocky off-white head, very persistent and abundant. Nice lacing. Aroma is mainly ginger and coriander; along with hints of peppermint, lemon, vanilla and roses. In the mouth it feels very soft, low-carb, full-bodied. Taste is round and well balanced, with good acidity, metal and umami. Long finish which brings a nice hoppy bitterness. Not your average Belgian strong ale, but very nice though.

RobinRamakers (13) - BELGIUM - OCT 16, 2016
Zeer alcoholrijk bier met een stevige schuimkraag. De smaak is subtiel en niet overweldigend maar de nasmaak blijft lang hangen.

jbruner (4567) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - OCT 15, 2016
Pours a hazy golden yellow from the bottle with fluffy white head that dissipates to leave good lacing. Aroma of big earthy floral hop notes and sweet maltiness with overlying light fruity Belgian esters. Taste follows, clean and complex, really well done. Maybe more of a tripel, really nice.
