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°

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? :/

American hop aroma. Pleasant flavor with toasty malt and citrus hops. Dry finish. Nice.

Restrained aroma in a golden pour. Strangely Belgian flavour profile for an ’American’ ale - but very tasty regardless. It is hard to rate these Italian brews as they are somewhat unique.

Bottle. Unusually choclaty for an american pale ale. Not as refreshing as I like them to be. OK.

On tap @ Open Baladin, Rome.
Honeyish yellow body with a froathy white head. Aroma of honey and some herbs. Medium-full body with malty sweetness, not a well hidden alcohol - but well hidden hops. Except more.

Boisson pâle, couleur blé műr, un brin trouble et ornée d’une opulente mousse blanche ŕ grosses bulles. Nez de citron, de fleurs des champs, et de baies. La bouche est un peu crayeuse, pas mal sucrée et moins mince qu’il n’y parait. Pas exactement ŕ haute buvabilité, mais la densité de saveurs y est pour quelque chose. Agréable et fruitée, mais il faut aimer le genre.

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.
