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.

The deScription positions this beer beautifully and so I don’t believe I need to add to it. The real triumph was the food match, made by my esteemed company, the writer Geoff Griggs and his wonderful wife Pip. I cooked a slow-roasted lamb shoulder in a ragout of tomato, garlic, cinnamon, olives and ale. I had expect the best match to be an innocuous lager that would cut through the fat of the lamb, but my friends put on this excellent ale whose sweetness set off the savoury of the lamb wonderfully well. A memorable ale for this reason.

Bottle; pours a cloudy caramel color with a tan head; sweet aroma of caramel, fruits, yeast, and bit of malt; taste is sweet with caramel, yeast, fruits, and a touch of syrup; short dry finish with a hint of spice; while the beer is sweet it is not at all over powering and very drinkable; nice Belgian

HammerTroll (1126) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 2, 2015
Mahogany color, cloudy, with floating crumbs. Some sourness in the aroma, wine, wooden barrel, a bit boozy. Taste is bready, fruity, hints of figs (luckily not that intense). Full body, soft carbonation. Sweet dark fruit finish. Not bad.
(Vrutak 0,75l bottle)

Pienamente in stile, manca forse un po’ di personalizzazione e sentori al naso

Bottle. Lots of caramel and toffee. Not much else but quite nice, little fruity. Don’t get the belgian thing, maybe the booze.

Ambrata arancio, buona schiuma, odore fruttato, sapore dolce -maltato e fruttato- ma non eccessivo, con un buon bilanciamento finale con l’amaro.

Cunningham (6461) - Halden, NORWAY - MAR 10, 2015
Nice unclear amber color with a small off white head. Some lacing. Rich inviting aroma. Dried fruits, caramel and some spices. Thick oily liquid. SA bit sweet and a moderate bitterness. Soft carbonation. Complex and lovely sipper. Lots of flavor here. Dried fruits, caramel, some spices, mild yeast and some tropical fruits. Nice one.
[Bottle from Vinmonopolet Rygge in Moss, Norway]
