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.

Barwa: miedziana, zmętniona. Piana biała lub jasno kremowa, drobna , ładnie oblepiająca szkło. Aromat: owocowy (brzoskwinie, morele, banan), praktycznie bez nuty alkoholowej. Smak: słodycz, owoce i minimalna nuta alkoholowa. Nic odkrywczego, ale smaczne.

Copper color, tiny bit of light golden head. Almond nose, nuts, dried fruits, hints of belgian yeast, burnt sugar and spice. Sweet taste, fruity and yeasty. Full body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Two thumbs up.

Pours a hazy copper brown from the bottle with thin ring of tan head that leaves light lace. Aroma is malty caramel and toffee, slightly oxidized. Taste follows with a hint of fruity esters and a boozy burn. Meh.

Un nez de miel et de fruits très mûrs. A l’oeil la bière se présente brune orangée avec un trouble et une mousse beige éphémère. En bouche on retrouve se côté doux du miel et ses notes de fruits mûrs, qui sont contrebalancé par la présence de l’alccol qui gêne un peu. Une bonne bière pour les jours froids.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein minimal trübes dunkel goldgelbes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr malzig süß, alkoholisch, belgische Hefe. Geschmack sehr malzig alkoholisch, fruchtig, würzig

Bottle thanks to dexter. Aroma of sweet graham crackers and honey. Lots of chunky monkeys. Taste is rather boring and lacks much Belgian character. Just ok.
