"Award-winning Rodenbach Grand Cru is a blend of 'young' beer (33%) and an older beer (67%) that has matured in oak vats. It is the high percentage of the older ripened-in-oak beer that gives it the complex and intense bouquet with a very long aftertaste like a Grand Cru wine. This is a complex beer with lots of wood and fruity esters, wine-like and with a balsamic vinegar aroma. A sharp taste, fruity, refreshing and with a balanced Madeira-like sweetness. The late Michael Jackson bestowed upon this beer the titles of 'World Classic' and 'the Burgundy of Belgium.'" —importer
"Appearance: Hazy dark red, almost deep brown in colour with a nice wisp of a white laced head.

"Smell: Acidic, sharp fruity aroma. Hints of caramel notes and oak as the beer warms.

"Taste: Crisp, dry and refreshingly tart. Has a very intense sourness and a raw cherry juice fruitiness about it. Body is perfectly balanced, full and gentle. A subtle background malt sweetness provides balance. Hops are masked by the intense flavours. Light malt grain and oak flavours as the beer warms. Finishes semi-tart, clean.

"Notes: Grand Cru is probably the most famous of the West Flanders red ales. It's made with Vienna malt and 5 yeast strains. It's then aged in massive unvarnished oak casks for over 2 years. Then, it's blended with other 2-year-old ales, no young ale addition. There's no fruit in this beer. All fruit flavours are imparted by its unique house blend of yeast strains.

"Dear beergod, thank you. This is indeed one of the most refreshing beers on the planet. An absolute must try." —Todd Alström, BeerAdvocate
