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.

Cloudy, dark gold with a thick white head. Aroma of spice, malt fruitiness. Pear, apricot, sugar, caramel. Sweet and spicy with a hint of nutmeg, perhaps. Different, but good.

Icedwarf (1144) - 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 (2540) - 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 (118) - 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.

Color oro chiaro, con schiuma bianca croccante a grana grossa dalla buona persistenza. Al naso sentori speziati ed erbacei. Corpo medio-leggero, carbonazione alta. Al palato ancora note speziate ed erbacee.

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.
