I picked this up in the gift box with the Grand Cru glass and It is absolutely amazing. Incredibly smooth for a Belgian strong ale with a sweet, hoppy aroma. I love their regular blonde and this is even better. This is easily one of my top beers now.

This beer pours a light medium bodied bright and slightly cloudy honey cream gold in color with a two finger, bright white head. The nose features Belgian pale malt, honey, some hay, and most importantly a healthy dose of champagne yeast. The yeast really shines here. I could smell that all day. For me that is perfect for the style. The flavors are spot on as well. it features sweet pale malt, honey cream, light tea leaves, some pear, elderflower, and that amazing champagne yeast. Wow, its just so well rounded yet different from others of the same style. It drinks a little light in body, is very smooth and doesn't show a trace of the 9.5%abv that it boasts. It is far too drinkable. A four pack of this would get you in trouble in a hurry. Overall thisis the best beer I've seen from St. Feuillien yet and may be my favorite Belgian Strong Pale that I've ever had. Great beer.

This one really surprised me. Poured into an oversized wine glass, bottled July 2015. Upon opening the bottle, the fragrance / nose / aroma struck me immediately. One of the most fragrant (in a positive sense) beers I have had in awhile. Bubbly and effervescent. Now I need to find one that is a bit fresher for comparison. Am surprised the reviews are lower on this one than I would expect.

Saint Feuillien Grand Cru pours straw to gold with a slight haze under a pure brilliant white 3” foam cap that rises slightly above the glass rim. The foam cap slowly collapses to a thick, lacy producing film. A stone fruity nose with a hint of over ripeness, citrus and light bread. Pear to peach begin the palate lightly sweetened by caramel over a background of light malts finishing with a mild earthy hop accent on the finish. It has a very creamy medium body with above average carbonation. Very refreshing and drinkable.
