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

Very mellow and yeasty. But not in a bad way. This could be a great intro into Belgians. This almost comes across as a Belgian session beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours golden with a medium-large white head. Aromas of bread, straw, citrus and herbal hops, light earth, light fruity esters and light wood. Flavors of bread, hay, pine/earthy/citrus hops, fruity esters and honey. Light, tasty and refreshing.

Pours a clear amber lacing head. The aroma has some lemon, yeast, some grass, very earthy. The flavor is similar. Lots of carbonation for a refreshing brew

My brother was nice enough to buy me a bottle of Antigoon. I did not expect a murky golden Belgian Ale. Yeasty bread, bitterness and even sour overwhelm the taste buds. Double blonde may be best to describe this Belgian Ale.

Pours a hazy straw with notes of banana and yeast. The palate dances with yeast notes that turn a bit dry during the mid palate. a nice spiced finish.

750ml bottle. Poured a hazy golden color with an averaged sized head. Lots of yeasty, earthiness. Some fruitiness in the background.

Oakes (12723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 17, 2012
Dull amber-copper and clear. The foam was very thick on this one. The aroma has plasticy phenols and a light dusting of spice. Dry and spicy character, with coriander and dried flowers, alongside some dusty yeast. Only a slight hint of alcohol late, with sweet malts.

Bottle from Total Wine. Warm sunny orange with fluffy meringue head. Yeasty aroma. Peaches, nectarines. Medium body, soft palate. Nutty malt backbone and balancing hop bitterness in addition to the ester character, which remains peachy. Balanced.

I have it at Mussel Bar. I really like it but I do not remember detail of it. We signed up the bottle and they will put it with the hanging others. I will get it again soon

Bottle. The pour was a medium murky golden yellow with an average sized (1-2 finger) white creamy head that had awesome retention, reducing to a thin white layer and having excellent sheets of lacing. The aroma was of a grain malt and a moldy Belgian yeast with notes of banana, honey and citrus (orange and lemon). The taste was lightly sweet with a touch of malt and a hint of honey at first and had a nice bitter-sweet yeasty finish with a big note of citrus at the end. The flavor lingered for a good long time with the yeasty bitterness lasting the longest. Mouthfeel was light to medium in body with a creamy dry texture and a medium carbonation. Overall a boldly flavored Belgian Ale without the heavy alcohol presence, very enjoyable...
