Original Grand Cru  

This is Original’s big sister, brewed with the same blend of malts, hops and yeast. More intensely complex and bigger bodied. Big fruit character and spicy phenolics linger into the long, dry finish. Sweet and boozy up front with a pillowy, wheat-heavy mouthfeel, the sweetness gives way to a peppery dryness.
