With the addition of coriander and wheat malt, it is reminiscent of a wheat beer. A nicely balanced and easy session beer. Slightly hazy, golden coloured beer with a white head. Citrus, malts and other grains are in the aroma.Bit of graininess too. Taste is quite smooth and creamy. Some lemon, initial bitterness. Finish is very much Belgian yeasty and creamy. Bubblegum and sweetness. Very smooth and surprisingly nice.

Slightly cloudy, orangey golden to amber colour with huge, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Aroma biscuity, pale belgian character, nice clean hops and light spicy. Lightly hazy golden colour. Taste is spicy, yeasty, clove again, maybe even a touch of caraway, spiced bread, fruity hints of apricot, a touch of brine. A decent Trapist.

The Musketeers Antigoon 7° – 1/3L

Available at http://store.belgianshop.com/special-beers/1520-the-musketeers-antigoon-7-13l.html

Antigoon is a clear, golden beer with a creamy head of very fine bubbles. Hazy golden beer with a decent white head. Strong aromas of Belgian sugars, and mixed fruit. Tastes of sweet dough and lots of wheat beer flavors: some oranges, lemons, even some bananas. Banana flavors followed up with some grassy hops and a bit of sweet malt tying it all together. Had low expectations but am pleasantly surprised.

Antigoon is a beer of high fermentation with an alcohol content of 7% alc. by vol. Therefore we call it a “double blonde”.
