The masterpiece of the brewery. The beer that mostly encountered the favour among the customers at Le Baladin. Although one wouldnt believe that, its the most alcoholic among all the productions. It originated from an old recipe created toward the end of the 800 following the style of the belgian abbey beers. Intense aroma of warm flowers, apricot and banana and hints of bitter almond. Agreeable, refreshing and quenching taste of apricot in syrup, almond cake and citrus fruits. Excellent the use of belgian selected hop during the fermentation process. This beer matches perfectly with ripen cheeses, biscuits and almond sweets.

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2016 (75 cl bottle courtesy of my family, cheers! Lot: 274/150; BBD: December 2017) Poured at 8 degrees into a Westvleteren chalice reveals a clear dark amber with fizzy carbonation and two finger tan head that recedes somewhat yet leaving surface film and nice lace. Aroma has the complicated malt bill profile reminiscent of beers like tripel karmeliet or Rochefort 8. Dominant notes of green apples, toffee, dust and citrus. Oily texture, medium body and a relatively short slightly warming finish. Flavour has sweetness but ends on a more drying bitter note due to the hops. Its decent and drinkable but the distance to Belgium is still visible in my opinion.

Rask0lnikov (871) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 2, 2016
Bottle. Hazy amber colour. Small head. Caramel, raisins, hints of berries and banana in the aroma. Sweet caramel, vanilla at first. Raisins, hints of sherry or maybe port in the middle. Caramel, banana in the end. Some Sweetness in the aftertaste. Medium bodied, rather low bodied, not so interesting, but still good belgium strong ale.

Lele (448) - Padova, ITALY - FEB 29, 2016
Birra molto interessante e saporita, ma che non esplode. Bruna, dalla schiuma che scompare subito e completamente. I sentori percepiti al naso e in bocca sono deliziosi, tra i quali emergono caramello, prugna, frutta secca e un buonissimo liquoroso. Purtroppo piuttosto acquosa e piatta sulla lingua per essere una Belgian Strong ale da 8. Apparenza e sensazioni al palato quindi decisamente da migliorare. Ancora una volta, Baladin si distingue per le sue birre saporite, ma che non convincono a pieno.

Bevuta alla spina..... super.... super.... super per niente. Un dolcionazzo assurdo. Peggiorata moltissimo rispetto al passato. Tanto vale bersi una ceres strong che non super uguale ma allappa meno. Finale ... per fortuna finisce...

Ippopodio (135) - ITALY - JAN 3, 2016
Colore ambrato con riflessi arancio ed una buona schiuma bianco crema. Al naso sentori di frutta e caramello. L'ingresso in bocca è dolce con sensazioni di toffe e caramello. Il finale è comunque abbastanza secco con sentori d'arancio candito.

An aroma of sweet fruits and yeast , there is enough hops to cut through the alcohol sweetness. A great beer .
