COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The first 100% Italian beer made with Italian ingredients. An intentionally simple beer: Italian water, barley malt, hops, yeasts and two Italian spices (bergamot and coriander) which combine to create harmony and originality. A beer which suggests more or less daring combinations, but more importantly marks a turning point in the Italian production of craft beer. Nazionale, is excellent as an aperitif and goes well with any dish. 13.6° EBC 10

All’apertura della bottiglia un pň di gushing, poi schiuma presente ma non molto persistente, all’olfatto č molto evidente il pepato e speziato del lievito seguito da un tocco floreale luppolato. In bocca ritroviamo le stesse sensazione cun un finala amaro piuttosto lungo e spezie ben in evidenza.

Po przelaniu do szkła ukazuje się biała, drobno i średnio pęcherzykowa piana, obfita i szybko opadająca, poszarpany lejsing. Barwa pomarańczowo- złota, zmętniona. W aromacie kwaskowo, melanoidynowo i słodowo, bardzo przypomina to witbiera, piwa pszeniczne. Chmielu prawie nie czuć. W smaku przyjemnie, lekko słodkawo, ziołowo-kwiatowa nuta od dodatków kolendry i bergamotki, posmak świeżego chleba, minimalna kwaskowość o profilu zakwasu chlebowego, może jakieś owoce typu morele, a kontruje to wszystko słaba chmielowa goryczka, podbita przez średnie nagazowanie i lekko alkoholowo-rozgrzewający finisz. Fajne piwo, gładkie, zbalansowane i bardzo pijalne, a przy tym gustownie podane. Mix Witbiera z Pale Ale we włoskim (nie amerykańskim) stylu wyszedł pierwszorzędnie.

Birra "easy to drink" e per me questo č un pregio! Alla vista si presenta giallo scura con una schiuma media in abbondanza e consistenza. al naso sentori maltosi che si ritrovano anche in bocca senza eccessi di altri sapori e carbonatazione perfetta la rendono di una beverinitŕ quasi paurosa. Va giu che č una bellezza.

Boa espuma, de média duraçăo. No aroma floral, cítrico e lúpulo. O conjunto é aceitável e vale repetir. Retrogosto longo, levemente amargo e seco.

eduardovl (961) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2014 750ml bottle served in a tulip glass. A: first of all, beautiful bottle art, Le Baladin trademark. Pours a pale cloudy yellow color forming a huge big bubbled, aired and soapy white head. Huge retention and lots of spotty lacings left in the glass S: Quite herby and lemony in the nose. A malty backbone with strong notes of flowery and citrus hops. I would dare some wheat and some orange zest T: Quite herby in the mouth too. The upfront can be slightly sweet but it quickly changes to a dry and bitter overall taste. Some notes of coriander and orange zest. Hops are significantly bitter and citrus too M: Medium body. Good carbonation. Citrus hops aftertaste O: Great drinkability. Excelent La Baladin specimen, as expected [ BA Review @ 4/3/2013 ]

TimE (3365) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 16, 2014
Hazy golden color. Light chalk white head. The nose is fairly eatery and I would say they are going for a Belgian blonde. Nice crisp hop notes with solid yeast character, definetely aiming for Belgian Blonde. Satisfying hoppy finish. Nice.

Zekada (269) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - AUG 27, 2014
Bottle from systembolaget. Smell of wheat, sweet and citrusy and a bit dry. Pours hazy orange with a rich white head. Taste has dry wheat and sweet subtle citrus and some oranges. Surprisingly full in body for a blonde ale. It places itself nicely in the mouth. Overall a really nice, fresh and tasteful beer.
