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.

Choos (595) - 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.

Betty (235) - Walgett, NSW, AUSTRALIA - APR 10, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2003 Well, Mr Kelly, just another flavoursome beer from those Belgians: we'll have to store these where Nudge can't find 'em. Delish!! But really, why is it that we get htis weird stuff cropping up in Australia when there is better stuff to import. Its better than the regular artevelde anyway I guess.

Yankovitch333 (612) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 5, 2003
Dark reddish brown with a thick off white head. Plum, caramel, and spices can be detected in the aroma. Alcohol is noticable in the taste. Not as balanced as it should be, but worth trying.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - FEB 23, 2003
Plum and raisin aroma. Brown color, light brown head, good lace. Starts like with port-like flavor and carbonation, then light sweet and plum, medium body. Long lasting nutty, little dry, little bitter finish. Not bad at all.

MikeF (538) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - FEB 11, 2003
Nice yeasty fruity aroma and large robust head. Smooth, fruity and very rich tasting with a dry bitter finish.

alebrewer (140) - Mentor, Ohio, USA - JAN 21, 2003
Lots of esters in the aroma - green apple, acidity, caramel and plums. Slight lactic character. Fuller bodied with hint of the alcoholic strength. Clean finish.
