COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The masterpiece of the brewery. The beer that mostly encountered the favour among the customers at Le Baladin. Although one wouldn’t believe that, it’s 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.

glennmastrange (2867) - 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.

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?

Restrained aroma in an amber pour. This is the fourth Baladin brew I’ve had this session (working my way up in strength) but I’m fundamentally not tasting any different = do they only have one yeast? Still, this one is the best so far...and none are bad.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2017 Kran w openbaladin. Zaskakujaco lekki, malo belgijski, dosc owocowy, bardzo delikatny, sumarycznie samkujacy jak jakies pale ale na chmielu dajacym owocowe, brzoskwiniowe i kwiatowe posmaki. Sa estrowe nutki a la banan. Lekkie w odbiorze. Super ukryty alkohol. Nie jest to piwo, co sie wyroznia, ale zarazem bardzo mile i ewidentnie dobre.
