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 theres any other kind) known as the Brouwerij De Musketiers, and it actually helped Thor Cheston, Becks beer director, get knighted by the beer guild in Brussels.

And now, for the first time, theyre bottling it. It comes in a 750ml versioncomplete with corks and wire cagesand, at this very minute, its on a ship approaching our shores, where its 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%

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

Bouteille date selon mon hypothse du 11/06/2014, bue aprs 23 mois. Robe jauntre trouble avec un col de mousse rocailleux. Armes de levures belges, orange, abricot, poire, pices. En bouche, levures belges intenses, sucre rsiduel, orange, poire, abricot sch cre. Finale amre de pelure dorange avec un arrire-got terreux. Texture huileuse et corps moyen. Correcte mais manque de fracheur.

BobyFischer (305) - FRANCE - MAY 7, 2016
Blond clair peine trouble.Mousse blanche qui abonde quand on sert bien, se dissipe trs lentement, adhre au verre et laisse un col moyen, fines bulles moyennes-fines. Nez dpices, de levures de poivre, notes mtalliques.Aussi : du fruit frais peut tre ananas... Corps assez plein,solide, alcool qui se ressent, notes pices et levures, encore cette touche mtal pas des plus intressantes. Equilibr et pas mauvais mais je mattendais mieux : jolie bouteille, bire maitrise mais moyenne.

Stoned99 (1452) - 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 dont appreciate much the aroma and taste, the palate is right on. Really easy to drink, even though its near 7% abv.

erickok (5750) - 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)

Soft, nutty and malty, and a little yeasty aroma. Clear golden colour with a little head. Nice copperlike, yeasty, malty and dry aroma. Little alcoholic dry aftertasy. Nice beer!
