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.

commonmac (1157) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 21, 2017
Bottle poured into St. Feuillien glass. Commonshawn, rosskyle, samalito, and dubtully also present at Dulle Griet. Golden with effervescence and a slight haze. Nice, half finger white head. Aroma is spicy and yeasty with a vibrant nature. Maybe a little banana. Taste follows the lead of the aroma with tripel like qualities mixing with hefeweizen style banana/wheat notes. Slight citrus and maybe a little metallic but it doesnt ruin the experience. Very delicious with an effervescent mouthfeel and lingering spicy aftertaste. Worth seeking out.
