Notes / Commercial Description:
Peach Grand Cru is Great Divide’s newest limited offering. Brewed with Colorado fruit picked right at the peak of ripeness, this Belgian-style ale marries two of our home state’s well-known offerings: great beer and fresh Palisade peaches. Both sophisticated and balanced, this extraordinary, aromatic ale was born to be savored beyond the orchard.

Awful mouthfeel. Artificial peach taste. Horrid balance.

Great Divide's worst beer by far. Why was this even released?

Just wretched.

A drinking companion actually vomited after a single sip.

First drainpour in a long time. Very disappointing. Flavor non existent, little peach presence.

Pours a peachy orange color with a slight haze. Aroma of peach, fruity esters and a bunch of alcohol. The flavor is harsh and not what was expected. Astringent and biting, doesn't hide the booze. The belgian yeast is very earthy but doesn't add anything positive and certainly isn't working well with the peaches. I would not recommend this.

750 ml bottle. Pours clear orange amber with a medium creamy white head that retains well and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is sweet peaches with some earthy funk.

The flavor is sweet and acidic peaches and yeast with an odd chalky tannin like bitter finish. It's a bit boozy. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, an OK boozy belgian peach beer.

Pretty disappointed.....barely any Peach, a hint on the tongue upfront. Unplesent astringent aftertaste. Drier finish than I expected for the style. Based on the ratings other people must like it but this was a complete miss for me. Glad I only had a sample if I had paid for a bomber id be upset. The only positive thing I can really say about it is the look and smell are amazing. The smell teased me and the taste did not deliver.
