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°

Tommaso (20) - ITALY - MAY 3, 2011
Bottiglia, aroma non molto coinvolgente, il gusto dei malti è piacevole ed equilibrato da un amaro, per me, un po’ blando.

Spina. Alcolicità subito evidente. In bocca forte squilibrio tra dolce e amaro. Finale abbastanza secco.

weaselkenievil (1606) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2011
Bottle thanks to some kind person at mesandsim’s tasting. Most likely them. A new one on me I think, not had much Italian beer apart from the obvious shite lagers. Strange for an IPA, more like a Belgian tripel. As an IPA, no. I quite enjoyed it though. Strong yeast in the nose and in the flavour, some fruit, brown sugar.

MiP (13478) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 24, 2011
Bottle. Lagery aroma, weak hint of grapefruit. Cloudy dark yellow colour. Good stable white head. The flavour starts off sweet and a bit yeasty. Turns quite alcoholic and spicy, seemingly from the yeast. More yeast in the aftertaste. Except for the rather dry finish, this is a Belgian tripel IMO.

Magnini (22) - ITALY - APR 19, 2011
Non è una IPA e non è una belgian, al naso spiccano il malto e luppolo in egual misura, in bocca è piatta e banale,nè carne nè pesce.

Bottled@Punavuoren Ahven, Helsinki. Hazy orange colour, not much head. Aroma is caramel malts, fruits, wood, some earth, mild spices and some slight yeastyness as well. Flavour is quite similar with some quite strong yeasty notes. Flavour was quite dull.
