Brewed at De Proefbrouwerij for Musketiers.

’Troubadour’ is a deep blond beer with 6,5 % alc. and a second fermentation on the bottle. This second fermentation is responsible for the higher alcohol percentage and the further evolution of the beer in the bottle. When poured out in a suitable glass, ’Troubadour’ has a thick white tenacious head. The first contact with the tongue results in a lovely sparkling feeling. The flavour is characterised by a mild bitterness and is somewhat spicy, followed by a pleasant sweet aftertaste and dry finish. The aroma is mainly characterised by the spicy hop flavours, accompanied by a light fruity flavour. Troubadour Blond is an authentic beer, consisting of the basic elements : pilsner malt, water, hop and yeast.

Discreta blond, ben stritturata e con un punta amara equilibrata. Nulla di travolgente ma di compagnia.

Bottle in Trembling Madness, York. Pours blonde with a white head. The taste is sweet with spice and caramel. Feels a bit boozy for the strength. Creamy mouthfeel.

33cl bottle at home from Mitra, Maarssen. Body is cloudy orange, head is big, white, rocky, mostly lasting, good lacing. Nose is floral, light cereal, flavor is fruity, apple, corn, light lemon peel, light spices. Medium sweet, medium bitter, hint of fruity sour. Finish is medium lasting light bitter light sour, slightly acidic. Medium body, dry texture, average carbonation. Easy, refreshing, interesting but not my favorite blond beer.

Fresh blond beer with a bitter aftertaste. Nice to drink, but not very special.

11.2 oz. bottle form Wilbur’s. Appearance: finger white head, golden color, lightly cloudy, light lacing. Aroma: molasses, cut grass, cardboard. Palate: medium body, average carbonation, bitter finish, slightly thin texture. Taste: sweet caramel and light fruity Belgium yeastiness, into cut grass bitterness with a bit of staleness that lasts with light alcohol. Overall, pretty drinkable, but nothing special really.

Patrząc na oceny tego piwa, jak i innych Trubadurów, spodziewałem się po nim wiele więcej. Złote, ze sporą, nieco dziurawą pianą. W aromacie nuty chmielowe i słodowe, ale ubogo. W smaku kwaśne i wodniste, nuty belgijskie słabo wyczuwalne. Średnie wysycenie. Może spożycie 3 miesiące przed upływem daty ważności miało wpływ na kiepską ocenę, może trafił mi się słaby egzemplarz. Tego nie wiem...

Aromat słodko-kwaśny, słodowy z nutami owoców i wina musującego. Barwa złota, piwo opalizujące. Początkowo obfita piana, szybko opada. Ładnie jednak zdobi szkło. Piwo jest chyba dość mocno utlenione. W smaku bardzo bardzo miodowe. Od początku do końca. Spodziewałem się po blondzie czegoś nieco innego. Piwo jest średnio wysycone, faktura i ciało w porządku. Ogólnie przez tę miodowość - trochę nuda.

baraciisch (2244) - California, USA - FEB 19, 2015
Rated from beer log from 2009 Belgian Trip.... Sweet citrusy aroma, yellow in color with slightly foamy white head... Citrusy but bitter like a pilsner that increases through the finish... Palate is more citrusy and less intensely bitter, which fades on the finish... Not bad

This was the very first Troubadour beer, since 1999, tasted in Ghent that year, rating based on old notes. Apparently this was influenced by the saison style back then, but I did not find many saison properties in this and I’m not sure this is still claimed today. Another Belgian blonde, but it did already show some more character than usual and thus kind of anticipated what was to come out of this beer company in later years... Creamy, thick, frothy, yellowish white head, hazy orange blonde colour; estery fruits, peach, pineapple, orange peel, sweetish, white candi sugar, honeyish even, countered with a light sourishness and bready yeastiness, some caramelly malts in the back, soft and quite full mouthfeel, drying herbal hops in the finish. Well-crafted but still a bit cliché.

Hazy gold with a nice foam top. Oily texture, bitterness and a little bit of lemon. Caramelised nuts. Impressive body for such a light beer with a slightly sweet but mostly dry finish
