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

Commissioned for Restaurants by Robert Wiedmaier.

Hazy golden amber with large creamy white head, leaving nice lacing. Aromas of stone fruits, white pepper, honey and a little biscuit. Stone fruits also prominent in the taste, along with a light tartness, honey, white pepper and lightly toasted bread. Finishes dry and bitter. Light bodied and not oily, giving a clean impression in the finish. Pretty darn good.

Alengrin (3884) - BELGIUM - JUL 23, 2015
Commissioned beer referring to the Antwerp legend of the giant Antigoon. Lightly hazy, tad peachy ’old gold’ colour with thick, dense, moussy, egg-white head. Aroma of gooseberries, freshly cut nettles, cucumber, bread dough, field flowers, green apple, biscuit, unripe pineapple, white pepper, peach, some bubblegum, some honey, some sweaty grains; in warming up, the better aspects of the aroma, in the form of sweetish fruits and very floral hops, begin to dominate. Crisp, spritzy onset of green and sourish fruits, apple, white grape, redcurrant, with a honeyish sweetness underneath, fizzy carbo, light and supple mouthfeel, lemon peel accent for freshness, lightly bready malts, lean and sweetish, ending in a yeasty-bready-earthy and florally hop bittering finish, a bit spicy and resiny, quenching and balancing, with some lingering malt sweetishness though the hop bitterness remains longer. Crisp, not unpleasant blonde, nothing out of the ordinary by any means but enjoyable, with not too many flaws and good balance between dry and sweet, though admittedly I expected a bit more from it since it’s Musketeers...
