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%

Double blond purchased at local supermarket ’Plus’ in Mijnsherenland . A blond which doesn’t live up to expectations. Not much in it other then realy bland sweet, some citrus far, far away and then hoppy in then finish. Expected much more from a blond. Not to be repeated.

Bottle. Pours a hazy burnt orange color with white head. Yeasty, cracker, cardboard aromas. Yeasty, malty, spicy, bread, cardboard flavors. I thought this bottle was $1.99, but it ended up being $7.99. Big waste of money, this one is old and not great.

Bottle 33 cl. Pours a hazy golden with a medium white head and an aroma of yeast, dust, white grapes, orange apricot, flowers. The taste is medium to heavy sweet with a nice hoppy bitterness in the finish. Pretty nice.

CloakedDagger (2575) - - FEB 2, 2017
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a hazy yellow with a dense, white head. Very fresh, fruity nose, only a discreet yeastiness. Medium-bodied, getting more yeasty and phenollic in the flavor - slightly fusty even - before ending up in a rather solid bitterness. 020217

33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Coop Culemborg. Slightly hazy golden with a big white head. Spicy yeasty aroma. Medium bitter with a creamy undertone. Classic Belgian blonde with a bit more hops than usual. Tasty stuff.
