    Smells like roasted pork meat, taste is undefined. I checked the date on the bottle. Not nice. IT could be me and my state at that moment, but this beer I didn't finish poored it in the sink. (Houston 201205)

    i realized when pouring this i've never had a light Grand Cru before...til now. cloudy straw yellow, aroma of grassy hops, herbs and spices, belgian yeast. pretty basic, but light and refreshing. not enough going on to go back for more, though.

    Grainy pale malt aroma with some subtle herbs and spices, mildly powerful and fairly inviting. Crisp golden yellow color with a 1/2" bright white head and tons of spotty lacing. Lighter in body than anticipated, finishes with some alcohol hotness. Sweet and gritty. Quirky yeast flavor with a light musty quality. Hints of mixed citrus fruits and banana. Dried herbs and vanilla extract. Tastes pretty good at first, but it wears thin and becomes cloying by the end of the bottle.

    A bit of a let down here, it looked, smelled and had the mouthfeel of a trditional lager, with the aroma having faint hints of yeast. The taste was not good, a sweet yeasty start and a bitter and a foul aftertaste. I wont try this one again.

    Pours out a light yellow with zero head and a very small amount of carbonation. Mouthfeel is very thick, and almost syrupy. Taste is lacking, some spices and a bit of alcohol present.

    From a bottle. Pours a clear yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is sweet and almost like a lager. Clove is present. Flavor is disappointing. With the name Grand Cru, I was expecting a lot more. Don't get me wrong, it's not horrible, but nothing spectacular. Sweet with a spicy undertone. Metallic, unpleasentness is present as well. An ok beer, but not what I'd call a Grand Cru.

    12 oz brown bottle, date code 6256B-21010. When you first pop the lid there is a slight skunk cabbage aroma. After you pour it into the glass it changes to a moderate citrus hop aroma that borders on a soap smell. This inturn morphs into a just plain clean sweet beer olfactory. Virtually no head, just a fizzy girdle around the inside edge of the glass. The color of this is the ubiquitous pale yellow american lager appearance. The initial taste of this brew is moderately bitter, something like an overly done pilsner. Medium body and there is no warmth in the mouth or throat for the amount of alky present. No way can this be the 8% that is stated here, if it is, this stuff really hides the alky flavors well. Quite surprising. The alky impression comes across like pilsner bite, not Belgian strong. After a few drinks there is a mild to medium bitterness that builds on the sides and back of the palate. This is probably one of the least oppressive 8% beers I’ve tasted, next to the real Belgian dubbles and trips. Decent medium carbonation that is welcome one the tongue. Finish is a moderate alky astringent impact, this lasts for a few moments after the last sip. Not quite as good as the refined Maredsous 8, but on par with Legacy Euphoria, Delirium Noël, and Piraat 10.5%. IMHO slightly better than Kasteelbier Blonde 11% and the notorious Gulden Draak.

    Pierre would be proud. A big white head on top of a nice golden hue attracts you to the filled glass confines. Aromas are typical of the Belgian style ales; those of spice, citrus, malt and yeast. Very nice mild spice notes of coriander, juniper and orange peel caress the buds along with an even blend of Saaz and Cascade hops. A very good interpretation of the style.
