Style: Belgian Strong Pale Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our Grand Cru rewards like dry champagne with aromas of passion fruit and exotic spice. This rich, golden-colored ale is fermented with a distinct Belgian abbey ale strain, then bottle conditioned with extra sugar and yeast for at least two weeks. Bottle conditioning creates the effervescent mouth feel, as well as the distinct Belgian lace prized in Belgian beers. Enjoy the complexity imparted by technique and craft.

Cru is a French wine term which means “growth place” or “great growth”. Brewers in Europe, notably in Belgium, and America use the designation to refer to a beer that is created to showcase the brewer’s art and to represent their passion for their brewery.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

I poured a bottle into a tulip glass.

Appearance- Cloudy golden-orange color with a fingers worth of head. Fair amount of runny lacing.

Smell- Aromas of citrus, fruits, spices, and yeast.

Taste- Very sweet and fruity flavors with a large amount of spicy Belgian yeast.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied and wet with an average amount of carbonation.

Overall- A good beer but not my favorite from Schlafly. Enjoyable but it has just a tad too much yeastiness for me.
