COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Artevelde Grand Cru features a dark red-brown colour, a firm, creamy, and cream-coloured head. The smell of roasted malt, caramel and the sweet fruitiness of the alcohol give this beer the perfect aroma. Caramel, sweet fruitiness and a pleasant bitterness are the predominant flavours. Its aftertaste reveals a pinch of toffee and date. Ingredients: water, barley malt, hops, yeast. Triple fermented.

Bottle. 25cL. Home. Matte dark brown beer with a beige non persistant head. Aroma of caramel, spices, sugar, berries, chocolate. Ephemeral sweetness leads to more bitterness and sourness (medium). Oily texture. Carbonated, for sure ! Bitter finish then sour. I like very much this "Grand Cru". After tasting Artevelde, I was a bit disappointed. This one looks like a wine with fruity notes.

EddyBeer1 (876) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 22, 2013
Brune légèrement rougeâtre, effervescence forte, mousse beige crémeuse et tenace. Malts légèrement torréfiés, un rien surette, petite présence de fruits noirs, trop métallique, manque de corps. Bof...

Donker bier dat goed schuimt met in het begin sterke alcohol smaak en niet lang erna een licht caramel fruitige smaak. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Huyghe often has a special dry-sweet yeast. This one has that as well. It makes this otherwise ordinary Belgian blond a little bit more special.

Alcohol is up front in the aroma but notes of fruit and sugary sweetness come through. Hazy brown-amber body is topped by a shy, off-white head that recedes to a partial cover. Sweet, fruity and boozy flavour. Medium-light body with strong carbonation. Tulip glass. Cellar temperature. Bottle.

mgajdaczewa (500) - Katowice, POLAND - AUG 1, 2013
Całkiem przyjemne, nie za mocne strong ale, które nie wyrządzi krzywdy przełykowi. Ciemnobrązowy kolor połączony z klasycznym, karmelowym smakiem belgiskiego mocnego. Poprawne.

Bardzo dobre. Przypomine red flemish Ale poniewaz jest rubinowo czerwone, a po przelaniu wraz z osadem brazowo-bordowe. Piana solidna i wielka i trwala. Zapach octowy troche winny. W smaku takze troche cierpkie i octowe. Troche ciemnych winogron w tle. Finisz dlugi i kwaskowaty. Bardzo dobry wyrob, najlepszy jaki browar oferuje w swojej bardzo szerokiej ofercie

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUN 19, 2013
Draft @ in Brugge. Dark brown with a thick, foamy head. Aroma of toffee, cocoa, nuts, alcohol and spice. Flavor is sweet dark fruit, caramel, alcohol heat and a spicy finish. Medium body with a smooth feel. Pretty good beer, slightly sweet.

erickok (3533) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JUN 3, 2013
Suprisingly dark brown body with large tan head. Dry forest aroma, humous, fig, candy sugar. Simple taste profile, light bitter with roasted malts and not much sweetness. Big cabonation als is a bit, well, to much. Not quite what I hoped it to be. (33cl bottle from Bierparadijs)
