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.

Vi høyner innsatsen på rbhd-treffet hos Odd Gunnar: Theo Musso imponerer gang på gang, her med en lekkerbisken som gir ganglag for sjelen. Stor aroma og smak med massevis av tørkede frukter og appelsin. Stor munnfylde og myk som en kvinnehånd. Heldigvis en stor flaske, så jeg tar med glede en påfyll.

Davros (2773) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 5, 2013
Pours dark amber with a fading head. Nose shows nutty malt, toasty hints, sweet malt, soft apple and pear. Not much else in the way of hops. Nice. Malty flavours too, loads of bready malt. Some piny hops and booze followed by a mild bitterness. Carbonation is too high.

750 ml bottle from a friend. Pours deep and nice slightly hazy amber, thick and creamy head, stays well. Aroma is really nice, full of ripened fruits, some tropical hops, sweetness but not too much of it. Strawberries. Taste has some fruits as well, hop bite is there but not too strong as the beer I have is maybe not the freshest. It might mean that there is more focus on body and malt character, doesn’t feel too much like an IPA - but that doesn’t bother me the slightest, it is still great beer, fully enjoyable. I guess the best I’ve had from Baladin till now.

Foffern (1678) - Bodø, NORWAY - JUL 29, 2013
Bottle at home. Pours a hazy dark amber colour with a creamy, light beige, medium, head. Has a fruity aroma with aprocot, fruity hops and some pine and caramel. The flavour is still fruity and sweet with apricot and nice balanced hops in the end. Has a slick and smooth mouth feel, and a light to medium bitterness. A balanced and fruity APA. Nice one!
