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.

Sour and fruity aroma, some yeast. Orange hazy body, big foamy head. Sour and weird flavor, maybe infected? Weird brewery!

Bottle pour cloudy brown orange with rapidly dissipating minimal white head. Nose raisin, prune, slightly dank. Taste some sweeter malt similar to nose, but also little late palate bitterness.

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2015 Kran w openbaladin. Zaskakujaco lekki, malo belgijski, dosc owocowy, bardzo delikatny, sumarycznie samkujacy jak jakies pale ale na chmielu dajacym owocowe, brzoskwiniowe i kwiatowe posmaki. Sa estrowe nutki a la banan. Lekkie w odbiorze. Super ukryty alkohol. Nie jest to piwo, co sie wyroznia, ale zarazem bardzo mile i ewidentnie dobre.

750ml bottle @martjoobolut’s, thanks. Amber color, full of floaty bits. Looks like divers paradise. Sweet, candy caramel, malty, fruity, apples in aroma. Apples, candy, sweet, malty taste. Caramel in aftertaste. Sweet, but feels watery. Strange. Well tbh I don’t mind it just sad it looks like this.

750ml bottle (Alus Celle, Riga)
Ugh, crappy floaty bits, and we’re only part of the way through the pour. Sweet mashy pale grains aroma, porridgy. Mart’s glass was less sticky and sweet but more weird. Taste was better, it was a quite light, but sugary, belgian ale. Ours was thick and sticky, mashy and sugary, and just a bit of a mess. As I go down he glass, the flaws fade, but everything fades, it beomes quite weak flavourwise. Brewed from sugar more thin malts, to be honest. Hmm, undecided about this.

Hazy orange beer, medium off-white head. Nose is slightly sweet and malty, fruity notes. Flavor is toasty sweetness and caramel, malt, some fruit notes, apples. Finishes with mild hops, tofee. Pretty drinkable.

Nez : une belle odeur de pâte à pain, de blé, très chaleureuse avec un fond houblonné très rafraîchissant. En bouche : le pain s’efface pour faire place à un bel arôme caramel. Le houblon part sur des agrumes genre orange/pamplemousse. Le tout présente un superbe équilibre, une jolie rondeur, malgré une présence un peu trop prononcée de l’alcool par rapport à sa finesse.

Kompleks, mørk aroma med mye malt og rosin. Frisk og søt, kremete i munnen med god balanse og konsentrasjon.

Opaque dark gold, medium white head. Dark fruit and some nuts on the nose. Medium body, delightfully balanced flavour - all is in order. Roasty, nutty notes with more of that dark fruit. Overall - delightful, if a bit overcarbonated.
