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%

Bottle. Pours a hazy light amber color with an extremely large, very dense, white head. Lacing is very strong. Aromas of bananas, caramel, bread, and hay dominate. Palate is very smooth and creamy with a nice crisp finish. Flavors of banana and hay dominate again, but then it has a nice bitter aftertaste. This is an amazing beer!

De geur is redelijk scherp. De kleur normaal blond. De smaak is zacht maar toch heel vol. Een aanrader

klaing (282) - Florida, USA - MAY 15, 2016
Cloudy orange with effervescent head. Nice silky mouthfeel with prickly carbonation. Pear, melon and a grassy hoppy finish on the dry side. Hoppy for a Belgian and all the better for it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Franckg (1179) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 14, 2016
Bouteille datée selon mon hypothèse du 11/06/2014, bue après 23 mois. Robe jaunâtre trouble avec un col de mousse rocailleux. Arômes de levures belges, orange, abricot, poire, épices. En bouche, levures belges intenses, sucre résiduel, orange, poire, abricot séché âcre. Finale amère de pelure d’orange avec un arrière-goût terreux. Texture huileuse et corps moyen. Correcte mais manque de fraîcheur.

BobyFischer (300) - FRANCE - MAY 7, 2016
Blond clair à peine trouble.Mousse blanche qui abonde quand on sert bien, se dissipe très lentement, adhère au verre et laisse un col moyen, fines bulles à moyennes-fines. Nez d’épices, de levures de poivre, notes métalliques.Aussi : du fruité frais peut être ananas... Corps assez plein,solide, alcool qui se ressent, notes épicées et levurées, encore cette touche métal pas des plus intéressantes. Equilibré et pas mauvais mais je m’attendais à mieux : jolie bouteille, bière maitrisée mais moyenne.

Stoned99 (1237) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 24, 2016
750ml bottle from private import. Aroma: apples, spices. App: hazy light golden with huge white head, awesome lacing. Taste and palate: full body, kinda smooth for the palate, light sweetness, light bitter finish. Overall: better than expected. Even though I don’t appreciate much the aroma and taste, the palate is right on. Really easy to drink, even though it’s near 7% abv.

Bov (11965) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - APR 18, 2016
from Au Grain d’Orge, Crissier - clear bright golden beer under a solid and firm white head; fresh aroma of yellow fruits, esters; full-bodied, sweet and with affair but subtle carbonation; bready, yeasty and long yellow fruity finish with residual sweetness

erickok (5396) - Leuven, BELGIUM - APR 13, 2016
Light misty golden body, large head, bubbly. Belgian yeast notes, pear, young cheese. Full taste, very nice actually, not super bitter, but outspoken for the style. Lovely long and quite dry ending. Yummy spicy peppery notes too. Pleasant surprise from this anonymous looking bottle. (75cl bottle from Deconinck)
