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.

Pours an apple-juice color with very little head or carbonation. Some spices / cloves & banana aroma like many classic Belgian style brews, but also a noticable alcohol esters smell as well. Very astringent alcohol taste as well, overpowering the banana / raisin / clovevyou get from the Belgian yeast. The foundation for a solid beer is there but the boozeyness doesnt mix well with the other flavors. Thin and leaves little on the palette to savor.
