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

botte, 075. Brra italiana...recensione in italiano! Non mi ha entusiasmato. Va bene..fatta solo con roba italiana...ma non č all’altezza delle altre di baladin. Troppo amara in ingresso e nel finale, con una struttura non molto definita. Limone ed arancia nell’aroma, ed un finale amaro ed acidulo.

Bottle from Domus Birrae, shared at Asahiya. 6.5% Very light pale gold with a fluffy white head. The nose is grassy, green hops, bready light malts. The tasty is clean and crisp, semi-sweet, crackery with a bit of Belgian type spiciness which I guess was the coriander & bergamot. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Piana jest mało intensywna, biała, średnio-pęcherzykowa. Barwa to jasne złoto, piwo jest idealnie klarowne. Aromat słaby, głównie słodowy (biały chleb pszenny), z pojawiającymi się nutami jabłkowymi i muśnięciami kolendry. Piwo jest mocno wysycone, szczypie w język. W smaku dominują zboża z subtelną nutą owoców cytrusowych. W tle pojawia się kolendra i ogólnie posmaki przyprawowe. Finisz to niska, delikatnie zarysowana, chmielowa goryczka. Piwo jest lekkie i bardzo pijalne

mikeyo1 (294) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JAN 3, 2015
bottle @ home. Pours an almost clear amber color with a large frothy white head. Dry and spicy aroma. with bitter orange, grains, bergamot, white pepper. Hints of toast, coriander and metal. Medium mouth feel with high sparkling carbonation (small bubbles) with an oily and soap-like texture initially and again lingering in the aftertaste. The soapiness blends interestingly with the bergamot and coriander spices. Grainy, bitter and dry mid-taste. Flavors also include flowers, bitter orange, white pepper, white fruits, grass & herbs.

McWorta (721) - LUXEMBOURG - JAN 3, 2015
Hazy, honey golden colour with a pillowy light creamy fine lasting head. Sweet-honey orange peel aromas with notes of grass, herbal and bread malt aromas. Complex! Light effervescent, full bodied; sweet with a light hop and yeast note. Harmonic lasting finish.

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.

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 ]
