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°

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 (8228) - 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 (4020) - 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.
