by Brouwerij de Musketiers

This beer is an attractive yellow gold, with a very slight cloudiness, sitting beneath an impressive white ice cream head. The smell is of soft spices and light fruits, as well as the typical Belgian yeasty esters – banana, cloves, mild citrus, bread.

The flavour is a great balance of bitter and sweet. Hops are detectable without being too obvious, while the fruit and honey sweetness is matched against citrus and peppery spice. As the beer warms a little, the flavours develop and become more pronounced.Brouwerij de Musketieres started out as four mates doing an Engineering Degree, who had a passion for home brewing.  Two continued the journey and now run the brewery.  The refer to this beer simply as 'Troubadour Beer' - they've given their other five beers names suggestive of the style, but the blond is their original brew carried through from their home brewing days.

Awards for the Beer:  Troubadour Blond has placed 1st and 3rd in the last two World Beer Cups, as 'Best Belgian Style Blond or Pale Ale'! 

Availability : Core range - 330ml and 750ml bottles, 30 litre key kegs.
