The Cuvée des Trolls was created in 2000 in the tanks of microbrewery Le Brasse-Temps, which was established in Louvain-la-Neuve by Brasserie Dubuisson.

It is an unfiltered blonde beer with a natural cloud. The beer is produced using only yeast, malt, hops, sugar and water and has an alcohol volume of 7%.

Thanks to the addition of dried orange peel during the boiling process, the beer has very pleasant fruity aromas that are in beautiful harmony with its delicate, fully rounded taste.

Drinking a 2013 in 2021...
Look - pretty thick syrup by this point and it only gets a 4 for the age... copper and thick
Smell - smells like sugar water with orange peel and slight belgium spice
Taste- more orange peel than anything else with that sugar water
Feel - syrup
Overall - not a fan

Pours a very slightly hazed lighter amber with big soapy white head that settles to a one-finger thick cap, with a few islands of lace sticking around. Smell: lemon, dried orange, pepper, a little grass; non-specific stone fruit sweetness, maybe green plum-esque. Taste: green/white plum sweetness upfront is quickly overwhelmed by spicy and slightly citric hopping, into a sugary and mildly peppery cereal grain finish. The end of the sip brings to mind Saison Dupont, but lacking in body and depth. Light-medium body; carbonation looks aplenty, but has a languid feel. Sticky finish. Solid hop-forward lower-abv BSPA, though maybe not so speciale.

Hazy light golden with nary a foam cap to be found. Aroma of yeasty pepper, orange, coriander and wheat. Flavor tends toward wheat even more with the same accompaniments from the nose. Finish is kind of nice, more balance with a touch of sweet and fairly clean. Maybe a bit boring overall.

Poured gently into a Ommegang glass. A Hazy, slightly white hue for color. Dense, towering foam monolith rises from the white-gold liquid.
Peppery, herbal and wheat aroma. Nice, herbal funk with plenty of varied yeast effects.
A very light, hate to say....watery flavor. An herbal, dry, grassy kick after, but still kinda subdued. Tastes of a light farmhouse, more for a session than for sipping. However, the abv. Is 7.5. So, a short session if you're rating beers.
A pool-side, easy drinker, very refreshing in feel and flavor. Just lacking a bit in complexity.
Very light in hop charechter, sits in the backseat with the yeast and li g t malt driVing the bus.
