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.

22oz bomber poured into Leffe Chalice.

American Tripel. Want to love, but ends a bit confused.

Appearance: Great hazy apricot color, fast fade head, moderate lace. Nice looking.

S: Belgian waft of apricot, pepper, coriander, spice, malt, and provocativeness. Nice. A bit of cidery stink too.

T: Grainy sweet, too yeasty, is first impression of sugary bread, then grain fields, hay. Giving way to cidery apple, stone fruit, pepper, spice, coriander. Lots of spice, and it finishes pretty nicely. But it's an uneven riot of flavors. Grows on you, and probably better with food (this is after dinner.) Alcohol shows, so meditation sipping is in order, make it last.

F: Peppery. Medium body. Astringent (Cidery). Leaves mouth in leafy place.

Overall yeasty and estery over done, and flavor collision mar what is otherwise a bold interpretation of a Tripel. This beer needs time, to warm, and grows better, warmer, more unified over time.

Great flavor for a Belgian Style beer. The Gran Met gives you the "punch in the mouth" type flavor. Nice cloudy golden / amber appearance, and a candy sweet taste. They use beet sugar, but it's not overpowering. Be very careful when you begin to savor, being a Belgian beer it stands around 10% and is very tasty (good beer that can begin to go down quickly).
