COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

fiulijn (15436) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 26, 2014
Bottle from Eataly, Milan; bb nov 2014, L178/120
Hazy amber color with medium sized frothy head. The aroma is fruity (jam) and bit yeasty (vegetable). Dry mouthfeel, too much carbonation; lean body; some malt flavor, not exciting though; a bit fruity and fresh, buy also yeasty; the bitterness is quite strong.
The yeast has a too high impact on this beer, but the hopping is quite nice.

yngwie (14626) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 31, 2014
Bottle, 75cl. An unclear, orange golden beer with a small, off-white head. The aroma is mostly citrusy, orange zest, with some herbal hints. Notes of forest and white sugar. There’s some alcohol warmth in the mouth, it’s full bodied and quite carbonated. Oranges, zest, some sweetness and a pleasant bitterness in the flavor. A herbal touch too. Citrus peel bitterness in the finish. A pretty nice one, but I’m not really impressed. Perhaps it needs some proper food. 140131

Bottle @ Y.N.W.A Beershop, Kolding. Pours cloudy dark orange golden with a creamy thick head. Nose is yeast, fruit, flowers and orange like hops. Yeasty flavor with a touch of dried fruit , bread and hops. Very smooth and creamy. Short bitter finish. A little too much dominated by the yeast - pretty Baladin like.

Rune (8716) - 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).
