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”.

The beer is named after Theodoor Cornet who, according to the census of 1686, was innkeeper, brewer and distiller of the “DE HOORN” inn in Steenhuffel. He was also a steward of the Count of Maldeghem-Steenhuffel, lord of Diepensteyn. At the count’s request, Theodoor brewed a stock beer. This exclusive beer was kept in oak barrels in the cellars of Diepensteyn Castle. This inspired the brewers and the wood master for the creation of CORNET.

CORNET is a strong blond Belgian beer that has a subtle, willful and sophisticated wood flavour with a note of vanilla and a “velvety” mouth feel that rivals that of an oak-matured wine.

The well rounded, oaked beer balances the fruitiness of the yeast and the sweet vanilla notes of the wood, leaving a warming feeling in the finish along with a smooth bitterness. Top-fermented beer with refermentation in the bottle.

C’est moi la plus belge – I’m the most Belgian

Clear golden beer, creamy frothy white head, pretty stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Good level of hoppiness not found in many Belgian beers. Aroma is elegant, delicately expressive and super refined. In the nose, nice hints of blossoms, spring flowers, fine and faint hints of crisp citrus and touches of pale malts. Perfect balanced bitterness and sour/sweetness.Great one.
