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.

Dark brown color with tawny through the edges, little to no head. Aroma hints of plum & clove with a nice balanced hoppiness to balance the alcohol. Flavor is well balanced. The finish is full-bodied & refreshing. Not complex but still solid.

This is a nice, lightly sweet for the style, moderatly well balanced Grand Gru with flavors of raisons, figs, and strong malt. Bold and flavorful, but maybe a little thin and dry for the style. I prefer Grand Couralus (sp?) by far, but this one is quite drinkable. This got better as it warmed, too. I'm not sure it's worth the $6.29/750l bottle. I wish I could brew something half this good, though......

SimonLarsen (210) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 9, 2004
Smell is subtle and a touch spicy. Yellowish head that has big bubbles in it and dies quickly. Deep spicy flavor with a noticable alcoholic sharpness. Strong raisin flavor but the alcoholic bite leads into a dryness that makes you want more.

bluevegie (3069) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 27, 2003
Almost muddy brown auburn colour with a large off-white head. Fruity/nutty aroma with prune undertones, noticeable alcohol in the taste but it is not offensive, nutty flavours with more fruit showing. Refreshing tangy finish. Cheers!

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 (5514) - 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.

Deep amber/brown color. Sweet malt and plum aroma. Sweet flavor, slightly sour aftertaste. Dry mouthfeel, decent body.
