Super Baladin

"Light wheaty flavors occupy the center and the beer slides into a long, dry, slightly tangy finish. The aftertaste has a warming glow. Super Baladin is beautifully balanced and it's perfect for baked or grilled salmon or arctic char."
Garrett Oliver, The Brewmaster's Table

The Super Baladin is the masterpiece of the brewery and is most often the favorite among the customers at Le Baladin. It originated from an old recipe created toward the end of the 9th century following the style of the Belgian abbey beers. It is similar to a Belgian triple. The twist with this beer is that an English yeast strain is used for primary fermentation. Afterwards, it is bottle-conditioned for two months using a Belgian strain.

Comments from Lorenzo Dabove:
"The initial nose is very, very nice. There exists a delicate perfume of rose and a slightly stronger aroma of violets. Ripe banana and a very sharp pear and pineapple follow. The taste is characterized by the unusual presence of a sublime cherry in syrup that reigns above all for some instants along with the bitter almond that joins it now and then. Finally, this gives way to an emerging citrus fruit and marzipan finish."
