COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

hangunder (305) - Ontario, - APR 28, 2013
Tart aroma, green apples, belgian yeast. Looks nice, long lasting white head, light yellow and haze coming from the yeast settled at the bottom of the bottle. Taste has sour and sweet notes upfront, spice in the middle and finish and a distinctive taste of belgian yeast throughout. Finish has an interesting sweetness to it, as well as some alcohol coming through and a hint of hops. The slight sourness keeps this one fairly refreshing. Heavily carbonated and medium bodied. Not bad.

Bottle. Hazy golden color with white head. Aroma is dough, spicy yeasts, touch of banana. Taste is sweet dough, spicy yeasts, esters, sirupy, sticky. Silky mouthfeel, sweet finish. Too sweet for me, but well-executed.

Zarrach76 (163) - Grenoble, FRANCE - JAN 3, 2017
Belle blonde, trs claire et transparente, avec de lgers reflets or. Grosse mousse dense la verse, blanche, centrale et stable. Nez trs intrigant : le caramel tout dabord, le pain chaud, lamande, la cassonade, la vanille, le zest de citron vert, le pamplemousse, lorange, la citronnelle, la coriandre, le miel, la banane, la pomme, la paille... Le tout est assez quilibr, mais lassemblage interpelle. En fond, un tout petit arme minral. Intressant en vu de la dgustation ! En bouche, bonne carbonatation, alcool excellent avec une main de fer dans un gant de velours et texture ronde. On a limpression de croquer dans une pomme verte et de la pche blanche, trs belle fraicheur. La levure est impeccable, trs sobre, tout juste perceptible. Les houblons sont bien floraux en bouche, superbes, ce quon navait pas forcment au nez. Lamertume est assez sage, mais elle est trs longue et une fois installe, difficile de sen passer ! En arrire bouche dexcellents malts qui rajoutent une touche caramlise gourmande et pertinente avec lensemble. Le palet est un modle de rondeur, un rgal. Le final est reposant, avec les notes vgtales et les malts... Des armes trs intressants mais des saveurs exquises. Presque un sans-faute ! Bouteille 33cl, V&B Grenoble.
