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°

Hazy gold beer with a lot of trapped carbonation swirling around. Little white head. Light soft and dry palate. Light malt - a little creamy. A hint of saison character. Sweet orange and then bitter hops. Finishes soft with light creamy malt. Like a light saison/ipa hybrid! Typically Italian eclectic!

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2011 2011-01-02, bottle 25cl at Eataly, Bologna, 6-4-6-4-13=33
Hazy light amber color. The aroma is simple, some malt, some yeast, lightly spicy, a bit earthy. It has a dry mouthfeel, that blends well with a trace of bitter citrus fruits; but besides that the aromatic hops don’t appear as much as they used to. Just ordinary.

2009-09-21, draught at Eataly, Bologna, 8-3-7-4-16=38
Cloudy blond coloir. Vry nice hop aroma, fruity but also harmonious, with oranges and flowers. The body is less malty than expected, nevertheless the mouthfeel is smooth, and it has a good hopping. A well balanced IPA.

2009-06-12, bottle, 6-4-7-4-15=36
Cloudy deep blond color; medium creamy head. The aroma is quite light, less than expected, with some oranges. Good smooth mouthfeel, dryish toffee flavor with a strong bitterness, partially fruity (oranges and grapefruit); the flavors are well mixed together. Solid.
