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.

750 ml bottle, label says bottled on NOV 18, 2014. Served in a tulip, the beer pours a hazy orange/copper color with about an inch and a half off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both pretty good. Aroma is sweet and fruity, the brew smells like processed candied/syrupy peaches, caramel, bready malt, cloves and a bit of dark fruit (figs). I think the taste pretty much is just like the aroma, but there's also some sweet spiciness, brown sugar and a bit of booze noticeable. But for being 12% ABV, it's not as boozy as I thought it would be. All the peach to me in both the aroma and flavor is the candied/processed kind, and there isn't any "fresh" peaches from what I can tell. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's slick and smooth with a moderate amount of carbonation. Overall I liked this brew and I'm glad I tried it, but at $19.99 a bottle I wouldn't buy it again at that price.

Look: Orange to copper in color; opaque. Pours with a 1-2 finger cream-colored head that dies down quickly leaving a thin coating of foam on the surface of the bear and lots of sticky lacing on the sides of the glass.

Smell: Mildy spicy, fruity.

Taste: Mildy spicy (think cinnamon, nutmeg); citrusy/mildly acidic; mild after-taste of peach and spices.. Dessert-like flavor of baked fruit.

Feel: Medium body; slightly fizzy from the mild carbonation.

Overall: Interesting dessert-like quality of baked fruit with spices. A spicy beer. Not something for every day consumption, but on occasion would be okay. Not in a hurry to have this again. I have had better spicy beers.

On tap at McNellie's Public house. Dark peach color with a solid head that slowly recedes. Smells of roasted malts and light peachiness with underlying alcohol. The malts were upfront and smooth and the alcohol hit in the back of the throat. The peach taste was a little bit syrupy and didn't feel liked it belonged. Medium-high bodied with high carbonation and the taste and smell of alcohol throughout.
Overall, I finished it and was glad it was a 8.5 oz glass and nothing more. The hops and malts overwhelmed the peach entirely and made me look for the peach. I was very much looking forward to this and ended up disappointed.

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.
