The amber version of OPEN, OPEN RISERVA combines the features of caramel and amber malts with the aromas of American hops. The result is an explosion of well-balanced taste, where the biscuit aromas coming from cereals and the notes of dried fruit blend perfectly with the bitterness and the aromatic scents of hops. The body is strong but never excessive, to ensure it is easy to drink. The head is thick and creamy. 16.8°, 33EBC.

Bottle pour at the Great Japan Beer Festival in Osaka (7/13/2013). Fruity and bit stinky. Orange/amber color. Sweet fruit > flattens out quickly > some balance in final. Seems much more like a fruit beer than an APA (at the festival, it was called an amber ale).

Bottle at the GJBF Osaka 2013 a lovely amber golden pour, a definite hoppy aroma. Much more hoppy than the classica but the flavor had a light zesty carbonation with an enjoyable hoppy aftertaste. More true to style than the Open Classica. I think I have the taste as the brewmaster at Baladin as I enjoyed all of their beers at the fest-especially the Isaac & Super.

Nice creamy longlasting head. Aroma is leafs, bark, caramel, grass, herbs, weeds, grain, hops. Taste is slightly sweet, caramel malts, bark, soil, weeds, leafs, grain, hints of cardboard and almond essence. Medium bitterness. Not really sure what I think about this one. Not my favorite at least.

Rune (11365) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 19, 2013
750ml bottle bought at Vinmonopolet Langnes, and shared with friends at a tasting session. Opaque, apricot coloured body. Good lacing from a decent off-white head. Aroma of sappy oranges, lightly spiced. Mid-sweet flavours of spiced fruity hops, earthy malts and celery. Semi-sweet, malt-fruity ending. Well balanced. Gentle, smooth and nice (Tromsø 03.06.2013).
