COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Saeglopur (253) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - MAY 18, 2014
From bottle at Craft Bier Fest Wien. Dark orange body, with a small, creamy, white head. Aroma of apricot, passion fruit, banana, mango, sweet berries, some vanilla. Taste with about the same aromas. Mouthfeel is medium, oily, with a medium carbonation and it finishes moderate bitter, very fruity and slightly sour. Tasty! A real fruit bomb with multifarious tropical fruit notes and a pleasant, but not too dominant sweetness.

Barwa: miedziana, zmętniona. Piana biała lub jasno kremowa, drobna , ładnie oblepiająca szkło. Aromat: owocowy (brzoskwinie, morele, banan), praktycznie bez nuty alkoholowej. Smak: słodycz, owoce i minimalna nuta alkoholowa. Nic odkrywczego, ale smaczne.

Pours a hazy copper brown from the bottle with thin ring of tan head that leaves light lace. Aroma is malty caramel and toffee, slightly oxidized. Taste follows with a hint of fruity esters and a boozy burn. Meh.
