About Licorne Grand Cru by Licorne Brewing Co.

The ingredients in Licorne Grand Cru are rigorously selected for their quality: pure, natural water, the very best hop flowers to bring out the aromas of this exceptional beer and barley for its light robe.

The key to this unique recipe resides in the last ingredient, indispensable in beer making: yeast. In the end Licorne Grand Cru owes its finesse to the delicate addition of Saccharomyces Bayanus, a yeast normally used for making delicately sparkling wines.

A bright, transparent straw colour complemented by a very white, airy head of foam with small, regular bubbles.

Smell :

With a hint of spiciness, this beer gives off citrus scents and aromas of malted barley and hops.

Taste :

A blend full of lightness and finesse with a very discreet bitterness.

Overall impression :

Its tiny bubbles reminiscent of one of the most appreciated of drinks leave a bouquet of rich, delicate flavours on the palate .

The Licorne brewery is situated in Saverne, Alsace, a region known for its long-standing connections with beer and brewing. Proud of its home town, the brewery has chosen a unicorn ("licorne") as the emblem to represent the company. Synonymous with purity, strength and independence, the unicorn became the emblem of the town of Saverne in the 16th century. Legend has it that the unicorn dipped its horn in Saverne water and that since then it has been clear and pure, ideal for making beer.
