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.

Medium off-white dissapating head over clear dark nut amber beer. Quite generous nose of dried fruit, malty bread (with rose-hip jam), cheese, sweet spice. Great nose. Medium bodied, slick and well-carbonated, the attack and midpalate are a let-down from the nose but ok. Mostly dry, faint sweetness, keen little sourness, and well-balanced bitterness, the next dimension isn’t arriving. Only medium length with a discreet sweetness. Absolutely no complaints but no tearful panegyrizing either.

freretoc (581) - Besançon, FRANCE - JAN 11, 2014
Bu en bouteille de 75cl, une couleur ambrée avec une mousse très belle et très compacte. En bouche on ressent beaucoup, pour commencer, les notes grillées et caramélisées de la bière ensuite on ressent le goût du houblon très résineux. Cette bière n’est pas si incroyable que ça et c’est son packaging qui sauve la donne

Tåkete brun med hvitt skum som forsvinner fort. Lukter stenfrukt. Rund fruktig behagelig smak. Søt lite ettersmak, men behagelig rund.

Brunorange uklar farge med hvitt skum. Aroma av frukter, blomster. Serverte den noe kald og synes smaken ble bedre og bedre når ølen ble mere temperert. God fylde og fin ettersmak.

ambrée assez sucrée, caramélisée, un peu plus fruité que la moyenne, mais ça reste assez classique

A very frothy, short and dying soft white head momentarily floats on a hazed dark honey body leaving no lace

Aromas and flavors are initially somewhat cheesy with dusty yet juicy fruit notes of overripe banana and apricot, a touch of bubble gum, reminding me a bit of Matilda and Orval with it’s sweet medium dark malt layer juxtaposed with a mildly off putting earthy cheese layer, small sips combined with exaggerated tasting movements offer some effervescence of pear and apple, this one grows into a more enjoyable experience with warmth into the 60’s, carameled sweet red apple leads to a pinnacle of juicy apricot and blood orange with layers of malty almond

Palate is medium with almost no carbonation, creating a light coating of all the aforementioned flavors, definitely not your standard texture

8.5oz capped bottle code LO58 at 55º into TeKu
