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

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...

GSAP (555) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 15, 2015
Smaak zoetig en kruidig, wat plastic erover, milde afdronk die aardig lang blijft. Aroma is zoals vele blonde biertjes uit België, snoep en wat fruit, maar mist frisheid, met de zweem van gist. Daarmee 13 in een dozijn. Wel goede kraag op licht troebel oranje.

Bouteille de 33 cl (titre à 7%), couleur dorée, léger trouble, mousse modérée, tenue moyenne. L ’étiquette nous vient du floklore belge, elle n’ en reste pas moins assez trash! Le contenu maintenant : Des arômes de céréales, de levure, un houblon assez présent. Carbonnation assez importante. Trouvée à Vanuxeem - Ploesgatert.
