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

previously at 6.7% ABV, since 2015 at 7%

Bouteille de 750ml. Je n’ai pas trop aimé cette concoction où j’ai trouvé les goûts de levure trop marqué. Des épices qui sont loin d’être nobles à mon sens. Une finale un peu tout croche qui détonne. Pas pour moi et encore moins à 15 piastres.

Une blonde belge qui sait garder sa mousse. Au nez, les parfums d’épices (levures + houblons), de pain et de fruits jaunes sont plaisants sans être renversants. En bouche, belle chorégraphie des éléments constitutifs. L’équilibre est là entre les malts, la levure et les houblons. Je dirais que c’est bien réussi. Je ressens un plaisir à boire cette bière qui est bonne et qui n’est, en fait, qu’une belge parmi tant d’autres. Une bouteille à 15 piastres pour laquelle je n’ai aucun regret.
