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.

Bottle. Nice bronze color, caramel and fruity taste. Alcohol is there but seems light to drink and enjoy. A great and qualitative belgium-style beer produced in Italy!

Tjeerd (249) - GERMANY - AUG 18, 2016
Light amber, hazy beer with a small head. Fruity aroma (apricot) with hints of caramel. Taste is malty, earthy with a sweet finish. Mouthfeel is quite okay (8% abv helps of course). Intensive taste but not fully my thing.

ulrikolsen (338) - DENMARK - JUL 22, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2016 Tap@Taphouse. Pours almost clear amber with small head. Aroma is sweet malty, slightly fruity with ripe fruits and has some honey and caramel. Taste is sweet and malty with biscuit, caramel, overripe fruits and some honey. Hops is almost absent but finish is sweet, alcoholic but semi-dry. For the type the alcohol should have been better hidden.

DraftDodger (1080) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 6, 2016
Copenhagen 6/5 2016. 75 cl bottle from Mad & Vin. Nice bottle design with a real cork that you have to use a Corkscrew to get rid of. "Super" written in capital letters on the label to get your expectations up. Pours hazy and murky orange amber with small white head. Disappears almost immediately leaving small island of foam floating around. Aroma is quite sweet. Sugary honey, sweet banana and Belgian yeast. Soft carbonation and medium thick palate. Taste is sweet and quite one-dimensional. It does not have much resemblance to an Belgian beer and "Super" is taking it a bit too far in my opinion.

Vestergaard (1693) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2016
On tap at Fermentoren Aarhus. Pours a clear orangy amber with a medium sized, creay, short lasting, white head. Aroma has heavy honey-sweet malts, light caramel, banana, pear, overripe mango, some spice as well.. Taste is sweet, more toasty, light spice, light floral, but not very complex taste. Velvety body and an average carbonation.

humlelala (1306) - DENMARK - MAR 26, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2016 (75 cl bottle courtesy of my family, cheers! Lot: 274/150; BBD: December 2017) Poured at 8 degrees into a Westvleteren chalice reveals a clear dark amber with fizzy carbonation and two finger tan head that recedes somewhat yet leaving surface film and nice lace. Aroma has the complicated malt bill profile reminiscent of beers like tripel karmeliet or Rochefort 8. Dominant notes of green apples, toffee, dust and citrus. Oily texture, medium body and a relatively short slightly warming finish. Flavour has sweetness but ends on a more drying bitter note due to the hops. It’s decent and drinkable but the distance to Belgium is still visible in my opinion.
