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.

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.

750ml bottle @martjooboluts, thanks. Amber color, full of floaty bits. Looks like divers paradise. Sweet, candy caramel, malty, fruity, apples in aroma. Apples, candy, sweet, malty taste. Caramel in aftertaste. Sweet, but feels watery. Strange. Well tbh I dont mind it just sad it looks like this.

750ml bottle (Alus Celle, Riga)
Ugh, crappy floaty bits, and were only part of the way through the pour. Sweet mashy pale grains aroma, porridgy. Marts glass was less sticky and sweet but more weird. Taste was better, it was a quite light, but sugary, belgian ale. Ours was thick and sticky, mashy and sugary, and just a bit of a mess. As I go down he glass, the flaws fade, but everything fades, it beomes quite weak flavourwise. Brewed from sugar more thin malts, to be honest. Hmm, undecided about this.

Nez : une belle odeur de pte pain, de bl, trs chaleureuse avec un fond houblonn trs rafrachissant. En bouche : le pain sefface pour faire place un bel arme caramel. Le houblon part sur des agrumes genre orange/pamplemousse. Le tout prsente un superbe quilibre, une jolie rondeur, malgr une prsence un peu trop prononce de lalcool par rapport sa finesse.
