COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

chimaybier (50) - Redding, California, USA - MAY 23, 2008
11.2 fl. oz. bottle purchased at Raja Liquors in Livermore, CA. This beer has a wonderful pour, with an excellent, smooth "cotton ball" type head. Slightly darker than a Grimbergen Blond, but still wonderful to look at. BOUQUET: apricots, faint vanilla, earthy, herbal, spicy- but not overtly so. ENTRY: hoppiness is eveident, but not too much. I agree with the bready maltiness. Caramel, estery... FINISH: Gentle Hop finish with that Belgian maltiness... A good Blond.

Kauge (1037) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 8, 2015
Bottle from Beer Express in Tallinn. BB 04/12/2016. Pours a near clear golden colour with a huge off-white head that drops slowly, leaving loads of lace. The nose is expectedly doughy and a bit spicy and nutty, later I get some cereal and damp hay notes. Flavour’s yeasty sweet and clean, very faint bitterness. Warming. Carbonation rather active but thin, body near medium but later comes across as a bit watery. No gimmicks, no surprises - a well done simple product.

The aroma is full of hops, citrus fruits, spices and bananas. The color is pale golden. The taste is slightly bitter and full of spices, hops and bananas. A lot of sparkling is detected on the tongue. The finish is sweet and abrupt and dry as well. A really nice beer!

jamaty (1614) - Madrid, SPAIN - OCT 31, 2015
Dorada anaranjada, consistentemente turbia, y de espuma blanca que deja película. Aroma a bizcocho, con notas frutales y de levadura, algo láctea. Muy belga. En boca es frutal y bastante especiada, con base malteada y levadura de nuevo presente. Buena.

sonotono (220) - torino, ITALY - SEP 24, 2015
Bel colore dorato, schiuma abbondante e persistente. Profumo malto caramellato, fruttato. Sapore dolce di malto, caramellato, ma secco e amaro nel finale, quasi degno di una tripel, che equilibra bene i sapori dolci. Carbonazione alta.

rami_pl (1064) - Warszawa, POLAND - SEP 14, 2015
Butelka, warka do 4/12/16. Jasne, metnawe, z przyzwoita piana. Aromaty lekko owocowe (morele, po ogrzaniu tez dojrzale jablka i gruszki), lekko przyprawowe, nieco drozdzowe, ale wcale nie na belgijska modle tylko w strone ciasta. W ustach slodkie (po ogrzaniu bardziej), lekko kwaskowste, z odnotowywalna, ziolowa goryczka (niezbyt mi pasujaca). Fajnawe, ale zarazem nieco zawod...

Achel (306) - Ioannina, GREECE - AUG 24, 2015
Hazy orange colour, small creamy head, which leaves some lace. Aroma is earthy, nutty and some yeast and caramel in it too. Also a lot of spices. Flavour is nutty, spicy, sour berries, earth, milk chocolate and yeast. Yet another "alternative", but very drinkable Saison.
