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°

Buona l’olfattiva, si presenta bene e lascia un buon sapore. Giusta via di mezzo per chi cerca una IPA senza andare sull’amaro estremo.

Znakomite piwo. O wspaniałym słodowym smaku i mętno pomarańczowym kolorze. Piana wytrwała dość dłógo. Zapachy kwiatowo owocowe. Chmielone nuty także wyczuwalne. Finisz goryczkowo-słodki. Polecam

ST247 (493) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JUL 10, 2014
On tap @Baladin Milan. Pours dark amber with adhesive white head. Aroma is hoppy, fruity. Taste also hoppy and fruity with hints of caramel. Full mouthfeel, little bitter finish. Nice one.

marcot (770) - Campomorone, ITALY - JUN 22, 2010
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2010 Bevuta in bottiglietta da 0,25 all’Irish di Quinto; sigh era davvero troppo poca, č buonissima questa IPA con un mix di dolce-speziato tipico delle baladin e un amaro molto forte dovuto anche al dry hopping. Visto che c’č la ricetta prima o poi provo a farmela a casa

Láhev 330 ml. Aroma je lahodně čerstvě sladové s jemným ovocně karamelovým nádechem. Pěna je jasně bílá, krémové jemná, mohutná a držící. Barva samotného piva je zlatá prohnána na pohled znatelnou silnou karbonací a silným zákalem, tato kombinace dělá opravdu nádherný efekt plujícího kouře. Chuť je výrazná, sladší, má jemný nádech karamelu a čerstvého sladu v pozadí je znát jemný nádech ovoce a kvasnic, finiš je středně hořký a držící s lehkým sladovým ocasem. V ústech pivo působí plně, má střední říz a je dobře pitelné. Toto pivo mě vskutku nadchlo a obzvláště pak svým vzhledem kde po nalití je vidět krásný efekt plujícího kouře, to celé je doplněné opravdu chutně vyhlížející pěnou. Piv už mám za sebou relativně dost, ale tohle je snad vzhledově nejhezčí a dal bych mu více než jen 5 a samozřejmě celková kvalita zpracování je též na vysoké úrovni.

Strepitosa nuova birra del Baladin, bevuta alla spina al Duca e poi me la sono presa anche in bottiglia da portare a casa... enorme

Bov (11973) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUL 25, 2009
courtesy of Laurent Mousson - cloudy orange colour with a persistent white foam; aroma of apricot and almonds, very hoppy, notes of yeast and cream; creamy mouthfeel and full-bodied, very bitter with lot of residual sugars and a long warming alcohol touch; very hoppy and fruity finish

3fourths (9137) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 29, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2011 75cl bottle. Unfiltered hazed honey colored body with a fine-bubbled off-white head. Nose of pineapple cake from the tropical/citrus hops and the cake-like bready malts, awesome. Unique and new, this beer like most Baladin does not fit in with any defined style, but is something new and interesting and stands alone. I am quickly falling in love with Baladin who has rejuvenated my once-stagnant interest in artisan beer thanks to their perfectly executed experimental recipes. The yeast character and structure of this beer are divine. Lovely throughout. Where’s my "hotel room rate taking in a foreign country" award? And bonus points if it were in Italian? :/
