Beer added by: spointon on 11-30-2008

Our Belgian-style Grand Cru is a full bodied winter warmer. A slightly spicy aroma and flavors of dark fruit and caramel are harmonious with the classic Belgian-style finish. Part of our seasonal series, Mercy is available on tap and in six packs at your favorite Wisconsin craft beer outlet from mid-November through January-ish.

A: Fairly translucent orange-tinted chestnut brown in color. Forms a decent sized tannish colored head, but it quickly reduces to nothing but a thin ring around the edge. No lacing.

S: The aroma is sweet and malty, with hints of vanilla, fruits, and spice.

T: Wow. This is a seriously sweet beer, almost candy sweet. Actually, not almost - this beer IS candy sweet. Lots of sweet malts, with malty fruits, berries, and a flavor reminiscent of Fruit Loops. There is a little citrus in the mix as well, but it's not a hoppy citrus flavor. Rather it tastes like orange flavored Gatorade or that cheap orange juice from concentrate. Quick finish.

M: Medium in body, but just feels thin for the style. Lower carbonation and a very mild bitterness.

O: There just seems to be something off about this beer. It's certainly drinkable and it's not that's its a bad beer - it's not - it's just that something seems out of place. I'll admit I don't care for sweetness much and this is a very sweet beer. Got through the bottle just fine, but couldn't see having another.

120z bottle that I received as an extra, pour right out of the box it was packed in,into a tulip.

A- Heavy amber color with cloudy characteristics and a foamy khaki head generated by a prompt pour. The head disipates to a 1/4 inch foam that holds like a bubble bath.

S- Dark fruit, molasses and Belgium spice from the yeast. I get some booze, sweet caramel, banana bread and biscuit as well.

T- Lots of sweet flavors with a smooth alcohol burn at the finish. I get dark fruit, dark cherries, banana, biscuit and sugar water (simple syrup). Little to much sweet for me.

M- Heavy. Lots going on, carbonation is good for the style. The lingering booze at the end is a little to much. One I enjoyed but not what i love in a beer.

O- A decent strong. Not my favorite style but I feel this one is done in the opposite fashion of the strong ales you see out west which have a much heavier hop present. This was just a little to sweet for me.
