3.7/5 rDev -5.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Presentation: Poured from a 750 ml brown bottle into a Rockmill Brewery chalice. Label is painted on and is a variation of a fleur-de-lis, as are the others in this series. Picked this up along with a dubel and tripel on a trip down south.
Appearance: Pours with 1 1/2 fingers of nearly white head. This settles slowly to a still substantial cap of foam leaving behind amazing lacing. the beer itself is the color of honey with an amazing amount of activity. Some floaties, but I take the blame for that. The bottle was jostled last night and didn't get enough time to settle.
Smell: Fruity aroma upfront, reminiscent of honey and berries. Slightly sweet malt with caramel undertones and a hint of husky graininess.
Taste: Semi sweet mild caramel malt upfront with hints of pine and a light medicinal finish. Slight tangy sourness in the finish. Alcohol is hidden well.
Mouthfeel: Tons of carbonation burst into a mouthfilling cascade of bubbles with each sip. Body is very good.
Drinkability: An above average looker, but just average on taste. For a beer called "Grand Cru" I expect a little more oomph or pizzazz. Not bad at all, but not as flavorful as I would have liked.

I poured a bottle into a tulip glass.
Appearance- Cloudy golden-orange color with a fingers worth of head. Fair amount of runny lacing.
Smell- Aromas of citrus, fruits, spices, and yeast.
Taste- Very sweet and fruity flavors with a large amount of spicy Belgian yeast.
Mouthfeel- Medium bodied and wet with an average amount of carbonation.
Overall- A good beer but not my favorite from Schlafly. Enjoyable but it has just a tad too much yeastiness for me.
