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.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 20, 2003
Ruby amber murky with large bubbled shortish lasting pale beige head. Reasonably pleasant medium light sweet malt, molasses honey and nectar fruity aroma. Thin metallic body. Medium malty sweet alcoholic and light spice flavours. Weak watery slightly vinous finish. Disappointing stale bitter and alcoholic finish

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - AUG 17, 2003
Lovely deep red amber colour with huge pillowy off white head. Aroma slightly dissapointing, green apples and a bit of spices, not much there though. Smooth thin-medium mouthfeel, initially very sweet with a sour plum finish. Interesting, not great though.

A nice easy drinking beer, but has no stand out qualities. The pour and taste, were above average.

NectarFarm (128) - Calgary, CANADA - JUL 11, 2003
I hate huyghe. Everything they brew makes me want to vomit. The thick cork like chunk in this vile fluid seemed to be the source of its rancid rotten cloying perfume apple stench. horrible from first sip to last. And oddly enough the first sip was the last as this went directly down the drain.

Sully (1377) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - JUN 21, 2003
Great copper colour and good head on the pour. A licqorice nose and similar taste. The mouthfeel is quite thin and lacks balance. The appearance is spoilt by a number of floaties. Thin lacing in the glass.

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JUN 5, 2003
Medium reddish brown color, small head, tiny bubbles. Slight molasses, rum, spices, and alcohol present.

Choos (632) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - JUN 2, 2003
Highly carbonated (large bubbles) produced huge non lasting head (in my tall glass). Slightly green plums maybe with some tamarind and bailing wire? Didn't change with strong tasty cheese. Left on the tongue it is quite sour and metallic but not offensively so as saliva seems to neutralise it fairly quickly. Still with all that not too bad though I would like to know what sort of food this should be consumed with to get the best results.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - MAY 17, 2003
Deep red. Nose is tart with a bit of bitterness, perhaps a bit of licorice or anise. Flavor starts musty the moves to fruity, if I know what tamarind tastes like (and I think I do), it's here. Also some definite bitterness, molasses and soy sauce. Ends overly metallic.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 5, 2003
pungent, sour aroma that stands out. Pours an opaque brown, cloudy with particles floating in it, slight carbonation, and not much of a head. Alcohol is dominant, finish is quite sour. The mouthfeel kept on making me wince. Overall I fould this beer unenjoyable and would not try it again.

joet (2200) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - APR 19, 2003
