Antigoon – Brouwerij De Musketiers (4.75 out of 5)



Brewed in: Belgium

Style: Belgian Pale Ale

ABV: 6.8%


Antigoon is an interesting Belgian Pale Ale.  It pours out of the 11.2oz bottle with a cloudy honey color and sporting an ample small bubble head.  It has a very bready and slightly spicy scent with some fruity esters.  This is one of the more interesting beers to smell.  I was not certain how it would taste.

The scent did not prepare me for what was about to occur on the palette.  At the first splash you are hit with a slight spiciness that blossoms into fruit barrage most notably of pear and apple.  It finishes with a malty bready base with a spicy character.  This is a fine Belgian Pale Ale with subtlety that is hard to match.  Lots of balance and flavor to savor in this one.
