Brewed at De Proefbrouwerij for Musketiers.

’Troubadour’ is a deep blond beer with 6,5 % alc. and a second fermentation on the bottle. This second fermentation is responsible for the higher alcohol percentage and the further evolution of the beer in the bottle. When poured out in a suitable glass, ’Troubadour’ has a thick white tenacious head. The first contact with the tongue results in a lovely sparkling feeling. The flavour is characterised by a mild bitterness and is somewhat spicy, followed by a pleasant sweet aftertaste and dry finish. The aroma is mainly characterised by the spicy hop flavours, accompanied by a light fruity flavour. Troubadour Blond is an authentic beer, consisting of the basic elements : pilsner malt, water, hop and yeast.

TaxiDriver (1847) - Stadland, - JAN 24, 2012
Bottle. A sweet smell of vanilla, light sour aroma of yeast, also some sugar. The head is very large, white and foamy with a long duration. The body is yellow. A light bitter taste, hops, a little bit metallic. The body is light to medium strong, creamy with a soft carbonation.

Bottled 330ml. -from Magic Beer Room Zagreb. Hazy pale golden coloured, medium sized airy white head, mild yeasty nose. Sweet malty, yeasty, fruity and spicy with notes of alcohol and some caramel. Spicy finish. Typical Belgian Ale.

Bottle. Golden appearance with a medium sized head. Hoppy with a pronounced bitterness. An excellent example of this style.Left lots of lacing. Worth trying.

Tap @ Het elfde gebod, XI Amsterdam. Mooie heldere gele kleur wat een heel klein beetje difuusheid over zich heen en een zachte zoetige bloemgeur. Het heeft een honing zoete zachte schuimkraag met lichte bittere afdronk. Kortom het heeft een zacht zoetige bloemige smaak waarbij het alcohol percentage ook nog een mee valt. Goed alternatief voor de honing zoete tripels die altijd harder gaan dan je in eerste instantie wilde. De barvrouw vindt het niks maar wat mij betreft, is dit een topper zonder dat je meteen omvalt. 7-3-8-3-15

Golden lively thick head like watching a bun rise in the oven. Aroma fresh fruity and sweetness. Strong taste malt honey sweetness with sparkly fruity then long dry bitter thing, good balance but a kick. Oh yes very tasty.

Bottle from Marks & Spencer. Clear golden colour with a white head. Little aroma. Good malty flavour with with hints of spicy yeast flavours. Pleasant but not great. A good basic Belgian Blonde Ale.

Jabic (713) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - OCT 18, 2017
Ar: Pungent sherry and nougat, with a cardboard note--overwhelms the aroma; a bit of malt and peach get through. Ap: Deep copper-gold and clear; medium-small off-white head with moderate-low retention, leaving a splotch of foam and some suds around the glass sides. T: Peach, sherry, and nougat; moderate-low sweetness; some toasted bread and light caramel; bitterness is medium-low and joined by an herbal hop flavor; sharp nougat on the finish. P: Medium body with medium-high carbonation; finish is medium-dry. O: This is just an old bottle of this beer; although it is heavily oxidized, it does show some signs that it was once a good beer--namely, through the appearance and background malt, hop, and fruit flavors.
