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.

OntBeerDrinker (515) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2013
Smells along the lines of apple cider and white wine. Big soapy bubble head that fads fast carbinaded, Pale golden. Taste some is inda like cherry hard liquor or red wine,some is kinda like some cider/champagine/white wine taste. Heavy bodied,some sips leave a brn from being 9.5% Sweet. Not my perfered taste for a beer but its not crap. Beer taste not included.

Frothmeister (759) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 24, 2013
330ml bottle. Pours a pale yellow with a two finger head of white foam. Aroma has a note of quality Austrian pilseners, spicy black peppercorn, lemon peel, yeast, a faint earthy note, and faint honey. Sweet with alcohol burn up front, light metallic hops, light honey, the peppercorn/lemon peel note, and a finish that REALLY makes me think cinnamon hearts, with a hint of green vegetable. The sweetness is well balanced with the hops. Pleasant stuff.

solidfunk (8313) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - APR 23, 2013
Light floral hops in aroma with a little booze. Pours clear golden with huge fizzy head and good lacing. Average carbonation, medium palate. Finishes a little bitter with dose of sourness on the extended aftertaste. Not bad - a beer that tastes oddly sessionable for alcohol content. Bottle.

Slightly hazy golden pour, huge frothy white head. Sharp grassy hops, cereal malts, and light tropical fruit. Good mouth feel, crazy carb. Low bitterness, crisp green grassy hops. Really nice stuff.

kevinsenn (2099) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - APR 14, 2013
Bottle from LCBO. Pours clear, very-pale yellow, with a 1-inch foamy head. Aroma of grapes, spices, and alcohol. Taste starts off with sweet grapes and vanilla, spice, with a warm alcohol finish. Didnt impress me too much at first but I was enjoying it quite a bit by the end.
