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.

Bottle. Dark brown color. Malt, biscuit, flowers and a hint iof citrus in the aroma. Malty sweet, slightly alcoholic biscuity flavor with some distant flowery hops. Not too bad.

Hamirubi (519) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - MAY 21, 2016
33cl bottle at home (22 V 2016). Extremely gushing brew, although with a swiftly diminishing foamy yellow to beige, unstable head. The beer’s colour is pretty dark brown to black, coffee looking even, yet very clear and vivid. The nose has clear Belgian yeast features, with some brown sugar, rosewater and malt notes too. The mouthfeel is more than a that oxidated, not really enjoyable, but the sugarish and malt flavours come to save the brew. Fairly sweet and somehow sticky, with a nice alcoholic body - although I believe this body is a bit faint or waterish. Not that complex, to say at least. The bitter tones are perfect, the slightly creamy ending is more than nice. There are a few fruit flavours in here as well, very well hidden behind the caramellish, sweetish armour. A nice brew - yet it keeps on being a Huyghe brew.

jamaty (1750) - Madrid, SPAIN - APR 22, 2016
Marron rojiza. Espuma manchada, efervescente. Aroma tostadp, dulce y con notas de cereza. Cuerpo moderado. Combina base acaramelada con un tono frutal de ligera acidez. Gas quizŕs excesivo. Esconde bien el alcohol.

Fules (339) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - MAR 16, 2016
Monumentális, tömör, örökké tartó, bézs színű hab, barna szín. Kissé szúrós, enyhén karamelles illatvilág, és ahogy melegszik, beköszön egy fanyar gyümölcsös vonal is. Ízében a karamell maláta dominál, de nem túl tolakodóan, mellette enyhe savanyú és keserű, valamint némi fahordós aromák is érezhetőek. Utóíze hosszú, enyhe keserű, alig érezhető dohossággal és savanyúval. Nem rossz, de nem is nyűgözött le, valahogy nincs igazi összhang. Talán még érnie kellene.

The_Osprey (5487) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2015
330ml bottle in Blaendulais, gold foil, 7.3%, BB Dec 2017. Thanks Sarah. As ’Artevelde Grand Cru’. Very dark reddy brown, pretty clear, sparkling, thin bubbly tan head. Aroma is red grape juice, candi sugar, touch of cherry, a little musty. Body is light, foamy, tingly carbonation. Too foamy and a touch rough on the stomach. Taste is a little medicinal, sweet, some plum and raisin, soft finish with some booze. Not bad overall.

susonagger (161) - spain, - AUG 9, 2015
Nota de Cata: Aroma a malta tostada y toque a caramelo. Al principio Sabor dulce, caramelizado, a frutas dulces como ciruelas pasas, higos...para convertirse en un agradable amargor, el regusto revela una pizca de toffee y dátil. Una cerveza con una interesante mezcla de compuestos aromáticos.
