COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Water, malt, hops and yeast. That’s it! Why? It took a simple beer to express a simple project. And it took an innovative beer to express an innovative project. This is how OPEN BALADIN was created: a beer with a “strong” personality and at the same time delicately captivating. And this is how this beer – the first “open source” beer in Italy – has slowly captured the hearts (and especially the throats…) of those who enjoy good, healthy and informed drinking. 27 EBC, 16.8°

JulienHuxley (4136) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 30, 2011
Bottle thanks to hoppypocket. Light hazy gold pour, white head and medium lacing. Aroma: Lots of cooked veggies, earth, old grain some alcohol. Very brash. Taste is musty grain, again very earthy. Just doesn’t feel very refined. Definitly bad.

Ragnampiza (740) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - JUL 20, 2011
Tiny 25cl bottle from Beerhouse. Served into a snifter. Pours a cloudy but bright sunrise orange, two fingers of white head, very nice lace retention. I don’t know how old this bottle is, but I don’t sniff a lot of hops at all. Light malt presence, small yeast smell as well. Moderate bitterness in the mouth, soft to medium carbonation, kind of watery texture. Honestly this doesn’t taste like a tipycal IPA to me, I would have loved a little bit more body and hops presence. Still nice tho.

robinvboyer (3491) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 17, 2011
Bottle at le mondiale 2011. Big resinous hop aroma. Quite pungent with a strng cereal maltiness. More of a cranked up english pale ale with high alpha hops. The hops fade and the biscuity malts come through in the finish.

JohnRMurdoch (3742) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUL 3, 2011
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Hoppy resin aroma. Rich golden amber colour, good head, lot of sediment. Strong hop, resin, alcohol flavour. Lingering alcohol aftertaste. Nice bottle. Slightly too strong on the alcohol flavour. Otherwise very good.

Benzai (9913) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 27, 2011
Hazy yellow color. Smell is nice with hops and fruits, but the taste is a bummer. It’s not bad but it’s way too sweet. Doesn’t taste like an IPA.

DutchDrebus (4679) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUN 27, 2011
This beer scored a bit above average. To me it could use more bitterness, bit more fruitiness. Not saying it’s bad though. It’s a little bit dull for an IPA.

Hansen (7442) - Assentoft, DENMARK - JUN 26, 2011
Dark yellów coloured and with sediments. Has a white head, medium duration. Aroma is sweet and a bit odd. Flavor is heavy sweet, light acid, notes of grain. Nice flavor. Creamy texture.
