Review – Alesmith Grand Cru
From Alesmith Brewing Co. – Our other famous Belgian-style offering is our Grand Cru. As with Horny Devil, it is fermented using yeast which originated in a Trappist monastery in Belgium. A darker type of Belgian candi sugar gives it more color and a richer complexity of flavor, consistent with the Belgian style.
From Alesmith Brewing – Grand Cru – 750 ml bottle poured into a goblet. 10.5% abv. Purchased at Whole Foods Market – Arroyo – Pasadena, CA.
Appearance: Pours a dark mahogany with almost no head. Very thick and cloudy looking.
Aroma: Dark fruits, plums, raisins,spices, and Belgian yeast.
Taste: Belgian yeast, candi sugar, herbal hops, bready malt.
Mouthfeel: Alesmith trademark silkiness.
Overall: Fantastic. Enjoy with a friend and or a main course.
