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.

Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Nez amande et malt. Acide au palais. Peu corpulente, alcool sous-dosé. Pas terrible.

Bottled, 330 ml. Hazy mahogany colour, creamy tan head with average duration. Yeasty nose. Tart, vineous aroma escorted by bread, caramel and apples underpainted by hints of chocolate, creamy, slick mouthffeel. Medium to long warming, tart finish with citrusses and toasted malt. Liked it.

zacgillbanks (3179) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2014
Bottle from Le Chai d’Anthon, Vitre, Brittany, France. This hazy dark brown beer explodes out of the bottle and pours with a large foamy white head. It has a slight sour red fruity flavour, notes of toffee apple and currants with a warming spicy vinous finish.

luser2000 (135) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 29, 2014
Ez meglepetés volt, mert valami egyszerűbbre számítottam. Még kell kósolni belőle, de határozottan klassz erős ale sör volt.

turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - SEP 26, 2014
Pours dark brown with a reddish tinge. Head is big and foamy but fairly quickly collapses to a dense, uneven foam layer. Aroma is sweet raisins. Flavour is malty, raisiny and sweet, a bit watery but improving in depth and texture as the beer warms up a bit. Not bad, but not the best Belgian out there either.

minutemat (2496) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2014
330ml bottle from Vanuxeem. Gushes a little on opening. Pours a dark mahogany brown with vibrant off-white head. Aroma is leather and sour fruits. Taste is tart, over-ripe soft dark fruits & some sour oud bruin notes. Interesting.

langeveld12 (292) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 20, 2014
Huge head, frothy and off-white which mostly diminishes. Body is dark red brown. Aroma contains roasted malts, cookie and caramel, citrus fruits, cassis, grape , date, cola and pinmeapple. Flavor is light acidic, then light acidic and light bitter, followed by sweet and light bitter and finishing in bitter. Body is medium with creamy texture and soft carbonation. Quite well balanced in flavors. Not very complex but enjoyable anyway.

Hermod (4354) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JUL 12, 2014
33cl bottle @home. BBE 07/16. Deep brown, thick beige head. Brown sugar, spicy, toffeeish aroma, dark fruity notes. Flavor has yeast, cinnamon, dark fruits and loads of sugar. Tickles. Toasted, caramelly finish. High carbonation. Too sweet for my taste. Edit: actually as the beer warms up a little I start to enjoy the fruity and spicy notes the yeast gives. up two notches from 3.0
