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.

previously at 6.7% ABV, since 2015 at 7%

vincentvega72 (383) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 29, 2015
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2016 Licht oranje van kleur met rijke witte schuimkraag. Je ruikt heel goed de gist en appelsien. Fruitig van smaak (pompelmoes, meloen, nectarine, perzik, lychee) met een heel licht bittertje. Lekker doordrinkbier met net dat tikkeltje extra. Go Musketeers !!!

Colore biondo dorato, molta schiuma, persistente. Profumo molto fruttato, un poco erbaceo. Molto fruttata anche in bocca, con un bel finale leggermente secco e amaro il giusto, con un ottimo equilibrio.

Shark_Pants (609) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 16, 2015
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.

0,33l fles bij bryanvdv goudgele zonder een noemenswaardige kraag. Smaak en geur met wat Citrus, mist wat aan karakter.
