COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Grand Cru is a speciality beer carefully crafted by Belgium’s 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 Cru’s 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.

solidfunk (9407) - 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.
