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.

750ml bottle poured in a chalice. Lovely Beer. Very fruity a yeasty. Pours a orange hazy color with a thin head which disappears leaving few lacings. Smell is very fruity and yeasty. Red fruits, mainly. Taste follows the nose. Some caramel malts can also be felt. The yeasts taste is really great. A little bit acid aftertaste. Medium body. Medium carbonation. High drinkability.

A clear copper coloured brew with a small but long lasting head of foam, great lacing. It smells very grainy, a bit fruity, noticeable hop presence. More whiffs in and it gets strongly caramel malty. Malty sweet, not so much grain, light fruitiness. Very smooth, near perfect mouth feel yet, a bit lacking somehow when I take the price tag into account. +$18 for a bottle.

C’est très fin.Très italien en cela que ça a de vineux.Légère acidité, malté/caramel, effervescence "frizzante".Quelque chose aussi proche d’un bon cidre.Très original et étonnant.

Birra semplicemente spettacolare. É una delle birre artigianali che preferisco. Molto corposa, gradazione elevata colore ambrato! Consigliata ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Una birra eccezionale... non sto qua a farve una descrizione delle varie note e aromi, perché trovo che sia inutile e anche perché francamente non me li ricordo... però ricordo solo che è una delle birre che ho bevuto con più piacere...

I don’t get the love for this - A fruity chritmas cake with spruce topping and lots of burnt raisins. Doesn’t really develop in to much. Solid, but not world class.

Draught at GJBF Yokohama 2014. Awesome brew, plenty of pear, apricot, plum, butter tart, alcohol is well hidden. Would swear this is actually a top brew from Belgium.

CanCrusher (732) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - SEP 10, 2014
Bottle 0,25L. Hazy, light amber colour with creamy, light brown head. Aroma of caramel, almond and sherry. Taste is sweet in a good way and very fruity (mostly cherry), with long lasting aftertaste. Full body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. They choose the right name for this beer (super=great). Alcohol is well hidden.

Simonsen (812) - NORWAY - SEP 7, 2014
Flaske fra vinmonopolet. Uklar, rødbrun farge. Moderat karbonert, selv om korken spratt opp med et smell. Tynn skumtopp. Smaker frukt, banan, nellik, gjær, aprikos, mandel og blomster. En god god belgian strongale som varmer

Cerveza color ambarina con una fina capa de espuma blanca. Olor muy suave y floral. Sabor a albaricoque, uva moscatel y ciruela. Riquísima.
