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.

Bottled: Orange coloured. Unclear. Beige medium sized head. Yeast, fruit and light sourness in the aroma. Flavour is spiced and light sweet. Has citrusy and sour notes. Is quite watery and not as complex and tasty as I expected. Disappointing beer.

It’s red-golden with a snow storm of sediment and a huge, creamy head. The aroma has notes of fruit, malt, yeast and raisin. The mouth feel is fizzy. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, fruit, mango, papaya, raisin, light candy sugar and yeast. It’s soft and quite harmonic.

Koelschtrinker (9998) - 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
