Grand Cru to the Moon
But that doesn't meant that Homer Hickam's exploits weren't spectactular, they were. Great Divide's Grand Cru is spectactular, I completely adored the 2 and 1/2 hours I spent sipping on my bottle. It wasn't quite as spectacular as a Chimay, it was just a little more rounded off. The flavors weren't as sharp. The traditional dark fruit and sweetness is in Grand Cru with a nice little alcohol burn, they just weren't as in your face and prevalent as they typically are in this style. Great Divide is using 3.14 and getting really close to the right answer. And for me, pretty close, at $7/22 oz. and pretty readily available, is good enough for me. I'm going to get a couple of more before they're gone as Grand Cru is a seasonal and will be gone soon.
