Atomium Grand Cru

Enjoyed this one on tap at Deep Ellum, Boston, MA, USA.
Surprisingly I had never seen this beer or this brewer with beers on tap in the USA, so I was delighted and excited to try it. It was served in the brewery’s own glassware – an impressive, bowl-like goblet that really looked great! Allowed me to take some lovely, large, satisfying gulps that swirled around inside the mouth. Beer feels bigger than it really is.
Very solid example of the style. Lovely pale yellow color with nice head and some lace. Simple peppery, sweet notes and Belgian candy and yeast. Pretty much exactly what you would expect from the style with the exception of the body that was a little light for my tastes. Drinks under the advertised 8.00% ABV.
I really enjoyed this, especuially the presentation and the taste – good stuff!
