Orange Coloring. White Head..Frothy. This is Definitly a Curious Beer. Egyptian Recipe...Some Herbal and Spice.. PLenty of Yeast in the Bottle. It Wasn’t Bad But Not My Favorite.

Pours a dark gold color with a solid head and lots of yeast floating around. Aroma is full of flowers and oranges. The taste is quite herbal with some spice mixed in. Corriander. Tasty, but I have other Traditional ales higher on my list.

Murky orange color with nice head that poured with chunks of yeastiness. Head didn’t stick around too long. Aromas of ginger, pepper and musty earthiness. Taste is light muscat grapes, bananas, coriander and pepper. Mouthfeel is lively with a medium body. Finish is smooth and lasting.

Yeah Eric...I agree...this beer rocks!!! Underarrated for sure!! Deep murky amber ale, fizzy white head. Light notes of spiced pear, red apple, fresh bread, and corriander. Good balance even with the hops being quite subtle, yet showing a tanginess that reminds me off a cross between a lambic and a hefeweizen. Medium bodied for the style, fizzy carbonation, dry finish. A "must try" at least once. It’s interesting to say the least...

UPDATED: APR 15, 2007 Bottle... This beer rocks!... Murky, amber ale with a medium-sized, white, fizzy head. Very good retention. The nose is light, but layered nicely with notes of citrus fruit, pear, light cinnamon, light coriander and red apple. The well-balanced flavor is tart and tangy. The hops are subtle and the alcohol is well-hidden. Medium-bodied with a fizzy, dry mouthfeel. Short, bone-dry finish. World class beer... underrated!

bluevegie (3059) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 29, 2004
Hazy pinky/orangey/golden colour with a medium sized white head that only just lasted. Aroma had some banana and apricot, a little cloves and chalk. Complex and medium body with a touch of lemon in the taste along with all the described aromas, some spice and ginger as well, the alcohol is there but not upfront. Great mix of sweetness, flavours and a touch of bitterness. Best Italian beer I have had to date. Cheers!

Orange gold colour, fruity apricot-like aroma. Apparently it’s the kamut grain that makes this taste spicy. But there is also fruit sweetness and sourness. Much more bitterness in the finish with only a touch of alcohol. This is an organic brew and is really complex. My favourite of the three Baladins I tried.

Floral, apricot, banana, spice, clovey. White head. Nice orange yellow hue. Rather sweet, spicey, faint fruitiness, dough, medium body, finishing dry, sour and tangy.

Art of Beer ’04: Very cloudy orangish yellow with thin white head. Armoma is of ginger and flowers (roses). Taste is very ginger with ornage and spice. It’s a very interesting beer, but a bit too gingery for me. I had to raise the overall rating a bit though because of it’s beautiful aroma.

Hazy golden body with a thin, white head. The aroma is crazy spicy with ginger, pepper, clove, banana, candi sugar and doubtless many other varied items. This is an interesting beer that teeters back and forth between a spicy trippel, Anchor OSA and Fraoch Heather Ale. The body is moderate but perhaps a bit thin. The flavor is pretty good, but a bit strong. The spice really dominates and takes total control. However, at certains times sweet fruit pops in for the party, only to be removed just as swiftly. An interesting beer despite being a little tough to handle in 750ml servings.
