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.

Sampled from a 0.25l bottle @ Beer Enthusiast release party. Pours a dark honey-amber colored body with a small sidesticking off-white head. It has a light sweet malty aroma, some yeasty tones, a little bit of cardboard, almonds and banana sweetness. The texture and mouthfeel is soft oily and it has a average carbonation level. Flavors are light sweet-ish, malty with traces of candy sugar, almonds and ripe berries. Also some hints of alcohol and it’s leaving my mouth light dry. Yeah, quite a tasty one. 23.04.2012

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 (642) - 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 (648) - 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
