English translation:"Real 'Biere Blanche', in a cask " (or just "Blanche") or "the original White Beer"
Explanation:
"Blanche" is a special kind of beer:

LA BIERE BLANCHE

c'est une bière de froment non filtrée, produite essentiellement par la brasserie de Hoegaarden. Cette bière est d'un jaune
lumineux, opaque, dotée d'une mousse riche et légère. Elle est très désaltérante et légèrement pétillante. (http://www-eleves.int-evry.fr/~robe/biere/dossier.html)

Worth a special mention for being in the vanguard of the brewing revolution is, of course, ‘Biere Blanche’ a nearly extinct style whose production was rebuilt in the 1980s and 1990s. (http://www.onlyfinebeer.co.uk/history.shtml)

also: "97 - Brouwerij De Kluis Hoegaarden, The Original White Beer, Belgium (Tasted 8/98). MARKETED BY: Labatt's USA, 101 Merritt7 /" (from http://www.tastings.com/area51/merchants/1999_07/wheat_beer....

"Original White Beer" if it comes from Hoegaarden in Begium

Explanation:
Just to expand on the last part and in addition to the previous answer : for "au fut".

In GB English, it is common to refer to a "barrel" of beer. For me, a cask is generally smaller than a barrel. If it the recipient, the thing from which it will be drunk, then "hogshead" may be used. "Cask" is otherwise used in much of teh related teminology : cf. "fermentation en fut" : "cask fermentation" ( also "barrel-brewed") ; and as a matter of interest "tirer de la bière du fut" : "draw beer from the wood".
