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.

Poured into a chalice, color is copper, opaque, head is bright white and presents about 1/4 inch thick, nice effervescence on the pour with high bubbling action.

Smell changes as it warms, heading toward sweeter flavors with subtle sweetness and sharp yeast spice and noticeable ester and alcohol presence.

Taste is similar to the aroma, noticeable sweetness, lighter flavors or sharpness than many tripels, somewhat smooth in presentation; esters and alcohol are noticeable but pleasant in flavor.

Mouthfeel is very pleasant for a tripel, very smooth and balanced, not to sweet or drying, flavors persist throughout the mouth equally.

Overall, a very nice tripel, a little sweeter than some in the aroma and flavor but smooth in the mouthfeel and finish.

Had it over at their bub in Homestead, PA. Poured in tulip glass. Incredible aroma and great taste! Definitely getting more next time I'm there.

Poured into a snifter.

3.75 A: Murky orange brown color. One finger of white creamy head. Retention is about average and a short ring of lacing is left.

4.0 S: Really clean, which I love in Belgian beers. Sugary maltiness. Peppery yeastiness. Pie crust. A host of fruits including pineapple, peach, and even some plum/prune.

4.0 T: Taste is really good too. Again quite sugary with a bit of cracker/pie crust as well. Pepper and a hint of banana. Fruits as mentioned above. Booze is extremely well hidden, offering just a hint of warming on finish.

4.0 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation with a pleasant spritziness to it. Supremely smooth.

4.0 D: Very nice beer. Definitely recommended.

Pours a hazy honey color with thin head that vanished quickly. Yeast is the predominant smell and taste, in a good way. Tiny carbonation, fairly smooth with the higher ABV evident at the end. Everything improves as it warms. This could be a go to brew for me. Voodoo is putting out some great beers.

Had this on 2015-01-18 in Columbia, PA from a 22 oz bottle

A - Hazy gold with a 1/2-finger white head and little lace.

S - Sweet cherry pie, fresh plum, Belgian yeast/perfume. Very appealing.

T - Echoes the aromas but more tart. Allspice. Graham cracker. Finishes with some moderate balancing bitterness and acidity without losing all the candy sweetness. Alcohol is evident but restrained.

M - Medium body and light carbonation. Smooth.

O - An enjoyable, well-balanced triple that doesn't have as strong a yeast flavor as some triples.
