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.

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 (1545) - 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 (190) - 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 (793) - 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 (273) - 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.

Goudblond bier met ruime witte schuimkraag. Licht mondgevoel met zachte afdronk. Aangenaam bier.

StueyD (1542) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2015
A very lively beer, took a while to settle enough to pour. A hazy golden Amber coloured beer with a thick and frothy white head. A light, bready malt aroma, some meaty yeastiness as well. Dry mouthfeel. The taste starts off with smooth malty flavours, caramel, bready and fruity, that then introduces a mildly tart flavour that lasts into a well balanced finished. Bottle from Beers of Europe.
