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.

Reddish in color. Thin white head. Its a heavy beer but light in flavor. Very enjoyable beer. This brewery makes a lot of good beers and this is one of them.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - NOV 20, 2003
Nice reddsh color, with a tinted with off white head. Fruity aroma, with notes of licorice and plums, but also treacle. Aroma gave an indication of a heavy beer, but flavor is light and fruity. Slight licorice or treacle note. Very drinkable and enjoyable.

Wakie (612) - Centreville, Virginia, USA - NOV 19, 2003
Nice amber color and lightly caramel/fruity aroma. Taste was a combination of plums, molasses, raisins, and malt. Pretty nice really. Worth splitting with a friend.

notalush (5316) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 21, 2003
High carbonation, but no head at all - dark ruby, good clarity - slighty yeasty aroma - flavor is very subtle, too subtle even - some plums and other dark fruits, vinous qualities - watery finish - soft and dry, slight tartness - pretty boring.

BBB63 (6426) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - SEP 26, 2003
Hazy reddish brown hue with good off-white head and lace. Aroma is very fruity with tones of raisin, peach, apple, and grape. Also detected some sweet spice, caramel and musty yeast esters. The initial taste was full of sweet malt and soft spice. Picked up a undertone of nutty bitterness towards the middle and the finish had a alcohol presence. Well rounded taste but seemed to lack the body to match. The mouthfeel is thin, fizzy and slightly papery. Alcohol level and the matching chest burn increased as beer warmed up. Overall drinkable, but not something I would buy again. Worth the one bottle though.

adwoan99 (244) - Ft. Worth, Texas, USA - SEP 21, 2003
Nice Belgian brown, although the aroma far outshines the flavor. Mixed fruit, raisin, and nutty nose, flavor is a close match. Small head quickly dissipates, and a nice refreshingly smooth palate.

kujo9 (1094) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - SEP 16, 2003
copper colored w/a very light beige lasting head. Strange herbal hoppy/medicinal malty aroma, caramel, and slightly fruity. Medicinal aroma disappears after it warms. Malty sweet & caramel, very well balanced from start to finish, but lightly bitter in the finish and aftertaste. Also lightly woody/earthy hop flavor in the aftertaste; very little fruity flavor. Light medium body, above average carbonation and warming alcohol, very pleasant. It seems I like Belgian Ambers since this is the first one I've had. I may have to have more of these.
