The masterpiece of the brewery. The beer that mostly encountered the favour among the customers at Le Baladin. Although one wouldn’t believe that, it’s the most alcoholic among all the productions. It originated from an old recipe created toward the end of the ’800 following the style of the belgian abbey beers. Intense aroma of warm flowers, apricot and banana and hints of bitter almond. Agreeable, refreshing and quenching taste of apricot in syrup, almond cake and citrus fruits. Excellent the use of belgian selected hop during the fermentation process. This beer matches perfectly with ripen cheeses, biscuits and almond sweets.

Rask0lnikov (751) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 2, 2016
Bottle. Hazy amber colour. Small head. Caramel, raisins, hints of berries and banana in the aroma. Sweet caramel, vanilla at first. Raisins, hints of sherry or maybe port in the middle. Caramel, banana in the end. Some Sweetness in the aftertaste. Medium bodied, rather low bodied, not so interesting, but still good belgium strong ale.

Lele (425) - Padova, ITALY - FEB 29, 2016
Birra molto interessante e saporita, ma che non esplode. Bruna, dalla schiuma che scompare subito e completamente. I sentori percepiti al naso e in bocca sono deliziosi, tra i quali emergono caramello, prugna, frutta secca e un buonissimo liquoroso. Purtroppo piuttosto acquosa e piatta sulla lingua per essere una Belgian Strong ale da 8º. Apparenza e sensazioni al palato quindi decisamente da migliorare. Ancora una volta, Baladin si distingue per le sue birre saporite, ma che non convincono a pieno.

Bevuta alla spina..... super.... super.... super per niente. Un dolcionazzo assurdo. Peggiorata moltissimo rispetto al passato. Tanto vale bersi una ceres strong che non é super uguale ma allappa meno. Finale ... per fortuna finisce...

Ippopodio (134) - ITALY - JAN 3, 2016
Colore ambrato con riflessi arancio ed una buona schiuma bianco crema. Al naso sentori di frutta e caramello. L'ingresso in bocca è dolce con sensazioni di toffe e caramello. Il finale è comunque abbastanza secco con sentori d'arancio candito.

An aroma of sweet fruits and yeast , there is enough hops to cut through the alcohol sweetness. A great beer .

glennmastrange (2668) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - NOV 16, 2015
Bottle. Moderate roasted and caramel for the malt, moderate cooked orange for the hops, light dough for the yeast, with brown sugar, dried fig, raisin and date in the background. Head is small fizzy/frothy, off-white with some slippery spots of lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is muddy medium brown. Flavor starts moderately to heavily sweet and slightly acidic, then finishes moderately sweet and lightly bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, syrupy, with a soft to lively carbonation. A little thicker and sweeter than I expected in a Belgian Strong Ale, but it makes it a bit more enjoyable on a cool autumn night.

Bottled Amber beer with off white head. Alcohol was the most predominant note in both aroma and flavor. Unpleasant malt liquor-like drink. Does baladin have a good beer?
