Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 04-23-2001

Grand Cru is brewed with a touch of peated malt and spiced with coriander, sweet orange peel and a hint of anise. It is deep golden in color, full bodied and has hints of smoke and licorice in the taste and aroma. The malty, warming finish is perfect for colder weather.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

LOOK: Burnished-gold color and a big dense frothy head.

SMELL: Coriander and anise, I'd say. A little perfumy? Festive.

TASTE: Citrusy-spicy. Those spice notes from the aromatics open up in the mouth. A little bit of caramel maltiness. Very little bitterness.

FEEL: Medium-to-full bodied. Good carbonation helps the flavor profile open up a bit.

Golden tinge and opaque. Earthy malt, slight farmhouse, roots. Slight anise finish. Another great one
