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.

Vestergaard (1547) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2016
From tap at Fermentoren Aarhus. Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a big, white, creamy head. Aroma has honey, lots of wheaty grains, light hops, spice, clove, esters, white pear, plums, light banana. Taste is rather sweet with a certain dryness mid sip leading to a sightly bitter, spicy finish. High carbonation and creamy, slightly boozy body.

Maarten1993 (851) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 12, 2016
Drank 09-06-16 with Rik and Lennart while watching the Castle finale. Not bad for such a beer. But still mediocre. Medium fresh, a bit neutral.

Icedwarf (1160) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - MAY 21, 2016
Geel bier met veel stevig schuim. Smaak is bitter hoppig en redelijk zoet met een kruidige bijsmaak, lijkt op iets als kaneel.

Lilja (2574) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 9, 2016
Flaska från Saveur Bieré. Smak och doft av humle, belgisk jäst, grön banan, honung, gröna druvor, vete med toner av örter och koriander. Lagom sötma, rund och len, fruktig, frisk, fin beska. Gott!

TheKernOwl (143) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2016
Nice blonde; nose has hay and is slightly herbal, and (with lacing) suggested a dash of wheat (not in ingredients list, though). Honeyed depth of Leffe, but perhaps just a tad bit under-spiced in the mouth (but again, you get a herbal, almost liquorice vibe). Med-long finish. Interesting blonde that gets more interesting when you really get under it.

josanguapo (944) - SPAIN - MAR 8, 2016
From elcervecero. In La Trappe chalice. Watching True Detective 1x04. Fruity, tropical, herbal, reminds me their "magma" ipa and Feuillien blonde but i enjoyed this more. May be getting used to this flavor profile. BB next month.
