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°

Stasera assaggio la seconda delle tre Baladin che ho trovato in bottigliette da 25, altra bella (e buona) sorpresa dopo la Super della settimana scorsa. In italiano non riesco a descriverla dato che mi vengono fuori termini tipo "dorato profondo" o "note di pino", magari andrebbero pure bene ma sono abituato all’inglese quindi: deep golden color, medium off persistent white head, caramel aroma with citrus (grapefruit) and peach notes, citrus and pine mildly bitter flavor, dry finish with herbal notes aftertaste, nice. Anche in questo caso la dicitura IPA non deve fuorviare il giudizio, sono birre che vanno contestualizzate e non paragonate alle illustri e canoniche rappresentanti dei generi etichettati. Ecco cosa succede se scrivo in italiano...insomma, buona dai.

Keg at Baladin Bologna. It pours a clean golden color with a medium tan head. Aroma is floral, fruity sweet, lightly yeasty. Taste is also moderately sweet floral and fruity with notes of lemon, melon and grass. Light biscuity malts. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, ok

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.

armando629 (2456) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 2, 2015
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.

lesifflebiere (1692) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 14, 2015
Boisson pâle, couleur blé mûr, un brin trouble et ornée d’une opulente mousse blanche à 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 à haute buvabilité, mais la densité de saveurs y est pour quelque chose. Agréable et fruitée, mais il faut aimer le genre.
