Very nice and delicate taste. High in alcool 9.5%...This is an amazing beer, almost sweet. Perfect bubble balance. Definitely a very grand cru.

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.

Purchased at the LCBO for around $3.50 for a 330ml bottle. Served at 4deg C in a tulip

A- Pours a huge head that lasts forever. Light gold.

S- Tons here. Lots of malt and a yeast that just clubs you.

T- Bubble gum good. Yeast galore. Unbelievable amount of yeast really. Not overpowering though

M- Dry and creamy at the same time LOL. Nice blend overall.

O- Wish I had more in the cellar. This one had a year on it before trying and still carbonated from hell.

Food Pairing

This wonderful beer went well with...... Braised short beef rib. Nice hold up believe it or not.

Enjoy

11.2 oz bottle poured into a Stella glass. 2 finger white head. Nice lacing. Head dissepates rather quickly (strange for the style).

Aroma is citrusy and mainly yeasty. The beer surprisingly isnt that sharp on the nose.

Taste immediately is pleasant with some nice citrus notes and a kick of nice carbonation. However, then the beer tumbles for me. It has this funky tobacco/ smokey ending that really just isn't good. It almost taste like a stale beer mixed with burnt wood. Slightly like wet hay. Not the crisp finish that i prefer. Has some spice, but again just seems to fall flat in comparison to its counterparts. Definitely not a repeat especially for the price ( BTW this beer is fresh, so that's not an issue). This flavor does dissolve as the beer warms, but who wants to leave their beer to sit for it to taste good?! They do an excellent job hiding the ABV,and The beer isn't overly sweet or dry (pretty well balanced in that aspect).

Overall, there are about 1000 other Belgian beers that will put this to shame! Even most American attempts can pull it off better than this one. I would pair this with a lighter pasta maybe one with a garlic and olive oil sauce with sautéed shrimp. I give it a 77/100.
