A glass as romantic as the story of the beer it was made to hold (see below). This Blanche de Namur stange glass was crafted for their wheat beers.  The stange glass, with its long, narrow body is meant for delicate beers as it amplifies malt and hop nuances.  

About the beer: Blanche of Namur was the daughter of John, Count of Namur. It is told that Magnus IV Eriksson, King of Sweden and Norway, was attracted by the young princess’s beauty, when he was travelling to France in search of a prestigious wife. The princess embarked for Scandinavia in August 1335 and was never to see the banks of the Meuse again. She would become Queen of Norway, Sweden and Scania. In memory of her beauty, her sweetness and her delicacy, the Brasserie Du Bocq dedicated a wheat beer to her: The “Blanche de Namur”. (description from Blanche de Namur website)
