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.

bhensonb (11494) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 24, 2007
Bottle. Fruity and floral aromas, along with a bit of caramel. Color is sort of apricot and the white head stayed awhile, though it did not lace. Full bodied with fizzy/creamy carbonation. Starts a little citric sour, some light stone fruits, touch of funk. The finish is dry, nigh astringent, with some citrus and a moderate amount of hop bitter. Leaves my mouth rather tingly. It just gets better as time proceeds.

thewolf (11235) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 14, 2007
Bottle, bought @ YNWA, Kolding. Pours a hazy orange with loads of small particles floating around. Head is foamy, fizzy, slightly geyish and frankly, rather unappealing. Aroma is caramel, fruity orange tartness. Some exotic fruits as well and a dose of yeast. High carbonation. Flavour is surprising compared to the aroma, thus is musky, barnyard, light tart. The fruitiness is subdued, matured and relatively mild. Alcohol is nowhere to be found. Extremely balanced, nowhere near pretty, but rather nice.

Koelschtrinker (11045) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 4, 2011
Hefiger, fast etwas pafümierter Antrunk mit geringen herben Einschnitten. Die betont fruchtige Hefigkeit spielt eine große Rolle, daneben blumig hopfig und etwas erdig. Toffeenoten im Abgang. 8/9/10/9/12/9
