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.

Bomber into a 22.5oz matching Voodoo over-sized snifter. The brew appears a clouded color of golden somewhat similar to fresh orange juice but maybe a bit darker. A slightly off-white colored cap is nearly a finger strong fading to a thin film atop. Rising bubbles maintain a decent cap throughout the duration.

The aroma starts off with notes of yeastiness reminiscent of apple and pear. A mild spice somewhat like clove and pepper is also present. There is an unmistakable scent of belgian candy sugar present that gives a brightness to the nose blended against a fruity aspect almost like orange or mild citrusy hops.

The flavor is not as sweet as you might think based off of the aroma. The yeast impact is fairly bold with a flavor of pear, apple, clove, pepper and a mild bready feel. Some fruity hop aspect is present with an herbal bitterness. A warming amount of neutral alcohol is felt mid palate and into the aftertaste.

This is a medium to fuller bodied brew with a moderate amount of carbonation. As far as tripels go, this is pretty spot on for the style. Lots of yeast character and a touch of that belgian candy sugar aspect resides. I could get myself in trouble with a couple bottles of this.
