AleSmith Grand Cru
Brewery: AleSmith Brewing Company
Style: Belgian Strong Ale
Format: 750ml Bottle
AleSmith Grand Cru really needs to be tasted to be truly appreciated. Toasty, caramelly flavors, as well as flavors imparted by the Belgian yeast strain, predominate over a tapestry of subtle nuances. Winner of the blue ribbon at the 1999 California State Fair, it is a thing of beauty. It is available in 750 ml. champagne bottles. Appearance: Crystal clear (when served properly), with a toast-brown color. Flavor: Starts with the tangy flavor of our championship Belgian yeast, then fades to a medium-light flavor of vanilla, caramel and chocolate. Finishes dry and well-balanced with a slightly toasty flavor. Aroma: Vanilla and chocolate aromas predominate, along with the Belgian yeast characteristics. Mouthfeel (body/texture): Clean and crisp, medium-bodied. Warmth from the high alcohol content makes it feel like a fine wine.

WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
Wee Heavy's don't come better!
Deep bronze beer, packed with a serious amount of rich caramelised malt. Thick, chewy, warming, this beer is the ultimate Winter Warmer brimming with notes of treacle, butterscotch, dark chocolate, dried fruits & peaty Whisky undertones. Sets the standard ridiculously high, sensational!
Excellent pale Belgian Strong
Darker than the average Belgian Grand Cru, this strong ale deals typical notes of pepper, clove, banana and bread dough, with a good measure of floral, herbal hops with a velvety rich malt body and long dry finish. Solid beer, ticks all the boxes.
