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

previously at 6.7% ABV, since 2015 at 7%

Not too memorable though I found it a bit too sweet and just a little funky. Being smooth was its only good quality.

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.

CloakedDagger (2277) - - 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.

Hopverdju (1004) - BELGIUM - OCT 8, 2016
Goudblond bier met romige witte schuimkraag. Geur: licht fruitig, sinaasappel, abrikoos en bloemen. Smaak: licht zoet en licht bitter als pils. Goede koolzuurprikkel. Afdronk: licht zoet en droog bitterig. Mooi alternatief voor een pils.

De geur is redelijk scherp. De kleur normaal blond. De smaak is zacht maar toch heel vol. Een aanrader
