Blue Moon Grand Cru
A little while ago I got the most amazing email.
It was from Blue Moon. A very nice lady there had seen my Blue Moon Cupcakes post and really liked it. So they wanted to send me some special edition holiday beer. ["!!!!!!!!!" was my approximate reaction.]
A few weeks later I got a box with a beautiful bottle of Blue Moon Grand Cru and a short stemmed glass in a blue velvet bag. I didn't know what Grand Cru meant, so I looked it up. A grand cru is a small batch Belgian ale brewed for special occasions.
The beer itself was a vibrant hazy orange. It was citrusy, spicy and rich, in the same flavor family as the usual Blue Moon but with more punch. Mmm!
Thank you Blue Moon! :]
