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.

LaViolette (108) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 8, 2015
Very simple beer. Got it from tap. It is good but I wasn’t really surprised by the nose or the taste... Nothing much to say. It’s OK to drink it though ;)

ForlornHope (117) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2015
33 cl bottle at home. It’s a blonde. Aroma of sweet yeasty bread and spicy hop. Taste is sweet and fruity with a gentle, spicy bitterness underpinned with grain. Despite a lively palate, a rich and slightly warming mouthfeel. Pretty good, I would have another.
