Wonderful amber color. Spicy smell reminiscent off old times spice drawers. Cool crisp taste with lingering aftertaste. A good stand-alone-beer or as accompaniment for spicy foods.

Bottle from a friend. Smell is citrusy, some wheat and slightly acidic. Pours dark orange with a rich yellow head. Sweet taste, some wheat and malts, some caramel and citrus. Palate is slick and sweet. Overall a nice beer. Smells very inviting and does offer a nice taste

Il birrificio Baladin, per quanto controverso, rimane un birrificio meraviglioso. Teo musso è geniale , e presenta una birra con un gusto unico. Giallo ramato, sul l’arancio chiaro, con schiuma croccante ed evanescente che nel bicchiere lascia poco o nulla. Bel profumo di spezie, con zenzero, coriandolo e mirra che emergono. Si passa all’odore di biscotti caldi al burro, ed un finale terroso. In bocca dolcezza da malti e complessità Di spezie costanti. Il palato è solleticato soavemente dalla complessità delle spezie. È veramente una birra buona, con una consistenza quasi oleosa in bocca, piena. Il.corpo è rotondo, sul centro della lingua continua a sentirsi anche quando è scesa giù. Retrogusto ancora terroso e lievemente speziato. Buona , gran bella birra. Nulla da ridire. Complimenti a teo, e venite a scoprire l’Italia che ha birre meravigliose.

@ Havregatan 141022. Bottle (750 ml) from Systembolaget (80:-). Spicy and sweet malty with yeasty and fruity notes, quite sweet, medium body with a watery to oily texture. The finish is dry, sweet and spicy. Quite odd, but I like it.

UPDATED: DEC 1, 2014 750ml bottle poured in a chalice. Excellent beer, despite of the hype around Baladin. This first experience with Nora specimen was quite a surprise. Curious to drink the Super and the Xyauyù... (next reviews :)) A: First of all, the bottle art: Beautiful. A beer with such a "visual" cannot be a bad one... Pours an orange color with a fluffy and bubbled white head which does not remains for long and disappears leaving no lacings... Many particles floating around S: Once opened, it spreads a nice perfume of herbs... Licorice, ginger, coriander(?), honey, etc. The spices blend quite well with the malts. Earthy yeasts tone can also be felt. Sweet: First impression is of a Belgium Saison T: Sweet malts, honey and spices. Licorice is a must. Very herbal as the nose. Earthy. Very Complex. Good blend with the malt taste. Very light bitterness (by the style, I guess). No alcohol felt M: Medium to heavy body. Very molasses (heavy mouth sensation). Good carbonation. Liquor sensation D: High. Delicate and well done. It brings good reputation to the new generation of Italian beers... :) [ BA Review @ 9/19/2010 ]

Interesting beer although according to its commercial description I have no idea what Myrrh represents. Aroma's heavy grain and malt. Poured with a modest off-white, Long lasting head, almost no lace and a hazy/cloudy amber color. flavors like aroma again heavy on the grain and just enough carbonic tang to balance, a smidgen of bitter. Excellent body. For me not really a session beer but certainly is an interesting beer to try. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Silvan7 (852) - Samarate, ITALY - SEP 18, 2014
Bottle @ home. Ambbrata, velata con schiuma beige non molto fine poco persistente.aroma intenso, agrumato , scorza d’arancia, speziato, zenzero, malto e lievito belga anche presenti. Qualche nota di caramello e alcool. Gusto dolce abboccato, fruttato agrumato in primis, ma anche lo zenzero è ben avvertibile. Poco amara, decisamente maltata. Calda, più di quanto l’ABV farebbe supporre. Abbastanza rotonda, equilibrata ed armonica.

Oh, this is very good. the color, unimportant is hazed yellow with an orange tint. I cant believe this is Italian. The head is not there but it doesn’t matter. The aroma is old wood and spices, perhaps that’s the myrhh. Theres tons of sediment in the bottom of the glass. its woodsy. Its spicy, Its woodsy< earthy and delicious. Cheers Italy!

dexcansino (488) - Andalucía, SPAIN - AUG 15, 2014
Cerveza de color ambarino. Olor floral y especiado. Sabor malteado, con alguna especia que no sé identificar. Pero está muy rica, y con un gran cuerpo equilibrado y muy redonda.
