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.

Gorgeous 25oz bottle from BW opens with a marked pop. Hazy, red-amber pour with a lot of sediment and a short white head which fades quickly to nothing and leaves no lace. Nose is sweet and ripe-fruit malty. Medium-light body and moderate carbonation. Apricot, plum, hint of raisin and some wood. Finish is short, fairly lightweight and dry. Despite the sediment, there’s no yeastiness.

Having stayed at Le Baladin in Piozzo I have a place in my heart reserved for Teo and his brewery and his beer. A wonderfully fruity -- banana, pear, pineapple -- Tripple with some slight nutty notes on the finish. A perfect substitute for desert! Grazie Mille!

Saeglopur (251) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - MAY 18, 2014
From bottle at Craft Bier Fest Wien. Dark orange body, with a small, creamy, white head. Aroma of apricot, passion fruit, banana, mango, sweet berries, some vanilla. Taste with about the same aromas. Mouthfeel is medium, oily, with a medium carbonation and it finishes moderate bitter, very fruity and slightly sour. Tasty! A real fruit bomb with multifarious tropical fruit notes and a pleasant, but not too dominant sweetness.

Fruity and malty with a fast vanishing foam and creamy liquid. A bit too sweet for my taste.
