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

KajII (783) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - MAR 28, 2012
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...

Bottle 33cl, a cloudy yellow beer with huge head and good lacing. Nose is on yeast and grain. Aroma is on sweet barley sugar, with peppery hops, mandarine notes, grassy bitterness, belgian yeast, some orange zest. Finish has typical belgian yeast astringency, relative bitterness too.

bartlebier (1799) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - AUG 30, 2014
Tap@Delirium Bar, Bxl 08/2014. More than OK, typically Belgian ale, with an extra helping of condensed hops to help out the laden orchard-heavy malts. Grass astringency, some honey and an untraceable medicinal note. Decent, but not something I would actively seek out.

Swaroga (1385) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 17, 2014
Butelka 75cl. OCZY : piwo jest lekko zamglone o kolorze złotym. Piana jest spora o kolorze wypranej białej koszulki. NOS : mocne nuty cytryny i skórki cytrusowej, twarogu, surowego ciasta, biszkoptu, delikatnie fenolem i estrami podobnymi do moreli. USTA : Piwo jest średnio gazowane o konsystencji chudego mleka. Piwo jest średnio słodkie, nuty słodowe są typowe dla piw w tym stylu, przypominają troszeczkę herbatnika i nasiona zbożowe. Typowe są również kwaśne nuty przypominające coś pomiędzy śmietaną, sokiem cytrynowym, skórką cytrusową i marakują. Kończy się to wszystko na cierpkości i wyraźnej, aczkolwiek subtelnej gorzkości. Posmak jest cytrusowo cierpki. ODCZUCIA : piwo jest nudne ale z tych bardziej cytrusowych. Pewnie potrzebuje inny czas i okazje by zabłysnąć. Pewnie w towarzystwie jakiegoś delikatnego żarcia. OCENA : smak : 6/10 pijalność : 8/10 styl : 0

Trappist1 (521) - Diest, BELGIUM - AUG 13, 2014
From tap@Delirium. Yellow hazy color, white head. Fruity nose, yeast, in depth and rich. Same goes for taste. Good MF, smooth, almost creamy. Initially bitter, but has a sweetish something in the back. Very nice brew, easy going, refreshing but also very complex.
