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.

huineman (670) - 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.

Zeer alcoholrijk bier met een stevige schuimkraag. De smaak is subtiel en niet overweldigend maar de nasmaak blijft lang hangen.

jbruner (4641) - 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.

dnicolaescu (2481) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - OCT 5, 2016
BOTTLE 33 CL. Hazy bright golden, creamy white head. Bright stone fruit aroma, notes of wild herbs and some roots. The taste follows the aroma, fruity and sweet, being dried up by the warming spicy alcohol. Smooth and dangerously easy drinking body. Very good.

La Saint Feuillien Grand Cru est une cration de la brasserie Saint Feuillien datant de 2011. Dun titrage alcoolique de 9,5 % Abv, elle utilise dans sa recette du houblon Styrian Golding (houblon Slovne aux armes de pin / Citron / Agrumes). La notion de "Grand Cru" reste toujours une notion floue mais avec priori, la volont pour le brasseur de raliser une bire dune qualit suprieure au reste de sa gamme. La brasserie Saint Feuillien avec sa "Grand Cru" se dmarque tout dabrd par sa bouteille, longue et tire et par son tiquette sobre, sur des couleurs noires et dores. Le raffineement est donc recherch. Ce raffinement nous le retrouvons dans lapaprence de la bire : sa robe, limpide, est dun blond splendide. Son effervescence est marque et la mousse, blanche et gracieuse surplomble la bire d1 cm dpaisseur. La comparaison au champagne est ici clairement souhaite par le brasseur. La premire dception provient du nez, relativement peu puissant. Celui-ci est doux sur des notes de miel et de crales, trs lgrement citronnes. Lattaque est trs intresante, sur le miel, le malt et lananas. En deuxime bouche, les armes de grand marnier et de fuits confits sont prdominants. Lamertume fait galement son apparition. Malheureusuement, aucune explosion de saveurs narrive en bouche. Celles-ci restent contenues, sans sexprimer compltement avec un manque de corpulence net. Le final dune belle longueur laisse en bouche des armes liquoreux et une prsence sucre marque. En conclusion, sur un "Grand Cru", mon attente nest pas simplement visuelle mais avant tout gustative. La brasserie Saint Feuillien nous propose ici une bire trs soyeuse sur des notes liquoreuses et une palette darmes intressante. Malheureusuement ceux ci ne sont pas assez explosifs et puissants. A la dgustation, on en est donc frustr, voire du.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7633) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 20, 2016
Sampled from an 11.2 oz brown bottle this beer poured a murky orange-amber color with an enormous foamy yellow-white head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was sweet and tangy with notes of sugar, golden fruit, yeast, phenol, faint bubblegum and a hint of tropical fruit. The flavor was sweet and tangy with sugar, pear, peach, apricot, yeast, a touch of must and faint bubblegum. Long finish with a bit of alcohol coming through. Moderately full bodied. Excellent.
