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.

Temptation (257) - - NOV 21, 2012
Good aspect, cloudy but brilliant, with a yellowish golden colour and a perfect white head, with a reasonable marked lace. In mouth, nuts, pine and flowers hops well balanced to biscuit and honey malts. The drawback is that the aromas are slightly faint and weak, and a little bit confused. Perfect development. Very good beer.

Pours cloudy yellow with a large, creamy white head, long retention with light lacing. Aroma is moderate Pils and biscuit malt, Belgian yeast esters and spices and light earthiness. Flavor is moderate sweet honey and biscuit malt, Belgian Candi sugar, spices and a sweet finish. Full body and moderate carbonation.

carlom (72) - ITALY - AUG 27, 2017
Colore giallo, schiuma abbondante e persistente. Aromi di malto e costa di pane leggero accenno di lime e coriandolo. Al palato malto, frutta dolce e spezie. Lieve ma persistente carbonazione, corpo medio finale secco, al termine della bevuta si fa sentire l’alcol.

Bottle at Delirium Cafe, Brussels. After a few Belgians, it comes across as ’just another strong Belgian ale’. Some pineapple, soap. Should have saved the pennies though on the Grand Crun. Perfectly fine though.

kaserov (887) - Oviedo, SPAIN - AUG 22, 2017
Color amarillo, ligeramente turbio, con capa de espuma blanca de tres dedos de grosor (muy buena retención). Carbonatación a tope. Textura acuosa y efervescente (demasiado carbonatada). Aroma muy floral, a levadura belga, frutas (plátano y pera, sobre todo), especias. En boca es seca y ligeramente amarga de entrada, floral, frutal, especiada, ligeramente herbal. Amargor y sequedad al final del trago junto con un mínimo de alcohol estilo perfume.
