COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
You may have taken a draw of this Belgian brew in the past, during your afternoon "client relations" meetings at Brasserie Beck. The double blonde was developed with the help of some intense Belgian brewers (as if there’s any other kind) known as the Brouwerij De Musketiers, and it actually helped Thor Cheston, Beck’s beer director, get knighted by the beer guild in Brussels.

And now, for the first time, they’re bottling it. It comes in a 750ml version—complete with corks and wire cages—and, at this very minute, it’s on a ship approaching our shores, where it’s due to arrive any day (icebergs notwithstanding) for your closer-to-home client relations. When it gets here, expect something citrusy and yeasty, but a little less potent than your typical Belgian

GSAP (578) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 15, 2015
Smaak zoetig en kruidig, wat plastic erover, milde afdronk die aardig lang blijft. Aroma is zoals vele blonde biertjes uit België, snoep en wat fruit, maar mist frisheid, met de zweem van gist. Daarmee 13 in een dozijn. Wel goede kraag op licht troebel oranje.
