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.

It’s kind of like a fine Belgian tripel with caramel and toffee maltiness added. Cloudy deep amber, no head. Nose is balanced burnt sugar, caramel, and fine hops. Upon drinking is initially sweet, but the light mouthfeel and strong carbonation prevent it from being cloying and the flavor quickly withdraws into a balance of mild bitterness and light candy-like sweetness. Aromas are subtle - a bit of flowers and apricots, good amount of caramel and toffee, almost a touch of buttery savorness in the finish coupled with candi sugar and warming alcohol. Very nice and subtle, suitable for a diversity of occasions.

Draft. Hazy orange with an off white head. citrus, malt and yeast aroma. Taste the same with some caramel notes. Quite mild for a Belgian strong ale. Without the usual belgian spicy yeast. Meh.

@ Wien Craft Bier Festival 2016 November. // Bottle pour cloudy brown orange with rapidly dissipating minimal white head. Nose raisin, prune, slightly dank. Taste some sweeter malt similar to nose, but also little late palate bitterness. <<>>>>>> Beer tasting sessions in Budapest, Hungary >>>>>>>>>>>>&g www.facebook.com/beeroda

Hazy orange, small tan head. Yeasty and tropical fruit aroma. Medium body. Not much alcohol. Some carbonation and creamy mouthfeel. Flavor is mildly sweet. Yeast, esters, mild hop finish. Not my favorite style but decently made it seems.
