COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Lele (526) - 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.

danielemolino (106) - torino, ITALY - FEB 20, 2016
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.

Mjp12 (1735) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2015
An aroma of sweet fruits and yeast , there is enough hops to cut through the alcohol sweetness. A great beer .

VinegarStroke (412) - Napa, California, USA - DEC 20, 2015
Light brown, cloud, moderate head. Very malty with low bitterness. Solid beer. Not great.

glennmastrange (2803) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - NOV 16, 2015
Bottle. Moderate roasted and caramel for the malt, moderate cooked orange for the hops, light dough for the yeast, with brown sugar, dried fig, raisin and date in the background. Head is small fizzy/frothy, off-white with some slippery spots of lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is muddy medium brown. Flavor starts moderately to heavily sweet and slightly acidic, then finishes moderately sweet and lightly bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, syrupy, with a soft to lively carbonation. A little thicker and sweeter than I expected in a Belgian Strong Ale, but it makes it a bit more enjoyable on a cool autumn night.

rgf001 (324) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 13, 2015
Bottled Amber beer with off white head. Alcohol was the most predominant note in both aroma and flavor. Unpleasant malt liquor-like drink. Does baladin have a good beer?

beer-yum (1549) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 25, 2015
Restrained aroma in an amber pour. This is the fourth Baladin brew Ive had this session (working my way up in strength) but Im fundamentally not tasting any different = do they only have one yeast? Still, this one is the best so far...and none are bad.

Bottle @ OlutExpo 2015

Pours dark orange with a smooth head. Aroma of berries, malts, caramel, toffee and hints of yeast. Taste is sweet, yeasty and caramely malts, toffee, syrup and berries. Finish is sweetish yeasty and stuffy with some caramel and toffee. Sweet and stuffy.
