3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Rich malt aroma with a strong hint of sour fruit, perhaps blackberries. Pours a slightly hazy dark brown with ruby hints. Solid, long lasting tan head. Flavour is slightly disappointing after the aroma but still good. Malty with firm bittering and a touch of sour and funkiness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deeply roasted malt flavor. Not overly complex as a result as this swallows much of the rest of the beer’s characteristics. Green tint to head. Dark reddish brown appearance. Tried at the Bruges bierfest in 2012 with Jess and Dave.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Snowy dark brown, beige head. Aroma is some funk, raisins. Taste has overripe fruits, dried figs, some sourness, overripe banana, bread. But all a bit too moderate. More taste and fuller body would have been nicer. still an ok drink though.

Artevelde Grand Cru is a pretty average Belgian strong ale. I especially like the palate which has a high carbonation and not even a trace of alcohol. A solid beer.

Deep, dark caramel color. Big, giant, foamy off-white head. Plenty of lacing. Sour malty aroma. Sour, funky, sweet, slightly malty taste. Roasty and bitter. Weird beer. Not exactly close to style.
