COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Zwaar donker-bier met een rijpe volle zoet-bittere smaak.
Grand Prestige wordt door ons met zorg gebrouwen met de beste ingrediënten. Het is één van de zwaarste speciaalbieren van Nederland. Grand Prestige is een bijzonder bier, dat ook wel "gerstewijn" word genoemd. Het heeft ook veel eigenschappen gemeen met een goede wijn, zoals de volle, rijpe smaak. Wanneer u de tijd neemt voor uw Grand Prestige geniet u van de volle romige schuimkraag, ruikt u de hop en kunt u zoet en bitter duidelijk onderscheiden. De smaak en de geur hebben de rust nodig om zich te ontwikkelen. Dus u kunt Grand Prestige best een tijdje bewaren, tot u de gelegenheid heeft er eens rustig voor te gaan zitten.

Bottle tasted at Nederlandse BierProeffestival on 17/05/2014. Brown amber colour with a nice white head. Heavy presence of caramel on the taste and in the nose with brown sugar too. Very sweet taste and aftertaste. Alcohol is well balanced and carbonation is Ok. Definetly is a nice beer. Next one please!

henkjanwiegers (120) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 2, 2014
Pours a deep red color. Aroma of honey, sweet, caramel, plums and bread. Nice start! The taste is accordingly: sweet and quite full, heavy on the alcohol, sweet and bitter balancing each other. Nice beer.

Beerkeholic (13) - NETHERLANDS - APR 30, 2014
Heerlijk donkerrood biertje met een melange aan smaken. Drinkt gemakkelijk weg ondanks redelijk hoog alcohol percentage. Zachte afdronk. Lekker speciaalbiertje.

TET (1578) - FINLAND - APR 25, 2014
A beautiful colour, reddish brown, a head is really weak and beige. The nose is rich, lots of sweet and dark fruits, raisins, cherry. Temptating, sweet and fruitfull aroma. Taste of dark fruits, richness of malts, prune, raisins, quite sweet, mild bitterness, only hint of spices in the end. Taste is quite simple but not mystical. The body is not so strong as could be expexted, only medium bodied, almost no carbonation. Quite good and sweet quad, but also quite simple and one-dimensional.

VincentKabel (152) - Haarlem, NETHERLANDS - APR 23, 2014
Very dark red brown beer with a creamy head. Medium Carbonation. Full is aroma and taste like a quadrupel is used to be. Chocolate, prumes and caramel combined with a very noticable alcohol taste that warms you from the inside. Pretty good Quadrupel (although the entire style isn’t really my cup of tea).

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein leicht trübes dunkel bernsteinfarbenes Bier mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch hefig, sehr fruchtig malzig, leicht würzig, alkoholisch. Geschmack trocken malzig süß, fruchtig, alkoholisch, hefig.

Lovely nose. I like the sweetness and the alcohol is actually quite pleasant. Maybe it lacks an opposite to the sweetness?
