Notes/Commercial Description:
Our Gran Met (Grand Master) is an Ale made from our Propriatery yeast from a small brewery in Belgium. We use Cane and Beet sugar, along with German Pilsner Malt to create the unique flavor of this age old style. We also use a unique fermentation process of slowly adding the sugars to the fermentation during fermentation. This allows the yeast to more slowly ferment the beer without overloading the yeast. This process allows for a more clean, tight flavor profile.

4.38/5  rDev +20.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Poured by me into a clean, clear glass from the growler that I had filled September 8th, 2012 at the brewpub. Cost I am not sure of but I am going to guess $11.99.

A A nice “psst” released from the cap when I unscrewed it (good sign I thought) and the look is much like I recall the beer from the labeled bottle that I enjoyed earlier this week which was purchased on that same date from the brew pub. A brief white head over a slightly hazy light caramel body. Good look. 4.0

S Belgian yeast and candi sugars eminate from the top of the beer but the smell is not a strong one. I recall that the real interest lies in the taste. 3.5

T Oh yes, that Belgian yeast and candi sugars conspire with a nice medium grain (possibly wheat) taste and the taste is very, very good. I have always appreciated the highly drinkable “comfortable” taste of Gran Met and the growler version does not dissappoint. 4.5

M This is one of my favorite features of the beer. There is a light effervessence of carbonation, that grainy (wheat?) feel and the great Belgian yeast that delivers a moderate, comfortable feel to the beer that I find very good indeed. I am brought back to the first time that I tasted Gran Met at the Frozen Falls Beer Fest in rural Ohio some years ago and I thought then that Gran Met was THE stand out beer. Tasting the beer tonight from the growler brings the same good experience. 4.5

D/O Drinkability could not be higher. Overall this is a great beer. If it were not for the excellent Cowbell Imperial Milk Stout and Big Black Voodoo Daddy this is the best Voodoo Brewery beer. That is really saying something! 5.0

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Bomber bottle

Pours near clear lighter almond amber, under a thin off white head, leaving a moderate film, thin collar and respectable low sheeting and bits of lace.

Ripe fruit nose.

Carbonation on the low side especially for the style is the first thing I notice about this one. Notes of more ripe fruit, some lime and light ginger comes to mind.

Moderate hops dry out the finish. Meh ... this one is really not doing it for me...first prob. was the lower then ideal carbonation level for the style. Should be closer to champagne and this one has the carbonation of a barley wine...
