Una piccola concessione all’attuale “trend” sulle birre amare... ma neanche troppo. Si presenta ricca di profumi “luppolacei” grazie al generoso uso di un luppolo americano dal nome di “Amarillo” ma, nonostante ciò, in bocca rimane fedele all’identità baladiniana, ben equilibrandosi tra sentori di caramello e frutta secca. Questa ”deviazione” ha dato origine ad una birra che ha reso la mitica Super Baladin ancora più beverina e di facile bevuta e ancora una volta gli otto gradi di questa birra sono ben equilibrati con la sua struttura. 18.2° 33 EBC

Lilja (2574) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 6, 2016
Flaska från Saveur Bieré. Smak och doft av humle, malt, karamell, aprikos, honung, marmelad, brunt socker och plommon och annan torkad mörk frukt. Liknar en barley wine i smaken. Fin maltsötma, fruktig, rund och len, lätt beska.

brianza_ale (202) - ITALY - MAY 27, 2016
Bottle in teku glass, tried several times during past years, got some boxes. Pours a moderate but quite durable off-white head, hazy full orange colour. Smells apricots, acacia honey, candied fruits, marmalade, sweet roasted. Tastes caramel malty, orange fruits, dried fruits, brown sugar. Very pleasant and well dosed medium sweetness, which is the focal point of the brew; low hoppy finishing note just to balance out. REGARDING THE BITTERNESS: THIS IS JUST A SLIGHLTY MORE HOPPY VERSION OF THE ORIGINAL ALL MALTS "SUPER", SO DON’T EXPECT THIS TO BE BITTER... The description in Italian: "A new concession on the actual "trend of bitter beers"... But maybe not too much". By the way good overall balance imo. Very nice medium to full body, spot on soft carbonation, huge drinkability. Great and original example of the belgian tradition, a mix between a blond and a dark strong ale. Almost better tweaked than the original Baladin Super.. Almost.

TedE (844) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 21, 2016
330ml bottle into tulip. Found at Bardwell Park Cellars, Sydney. Caramel toffee on the nose. Opaque ’caramel sauce’ appearance with solid foamy white head. Champagne effervescence. Tingly and bitter like a grapefruit soft drink. Finish is fruity hoppy, alcoholic and red wine dry. Eccentric Italian version of a strong ale.

yourilevesque (1169) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 1, 2016
Un liquide ambré et voilé sans mousse véritable. Un simulacre de ce que fut jadis la symbiose entre la levure et le sucre n’est plus qu’un mince film blanc de surface. Un nez de fleurs pollinisées, de miel, de vieille poche (de malt!) et de caramel d’épicerie. Je ne trouve pas que ça sente véritablement mauvais, mais une étiquette qui m’annonce une Super Bitter m’emmène à me faire des attentes. Or le liquide m’emmène dans une toute autre direction - une direction que je n’ai pas choisie en ce moment précis et qui me trouble un peu. Beaucoup de malts caramel en bouche et de sucre d’orge. Le liquide est toutefois très aqueux et plutôt mince, ce qui le rend plus facile à boire, heureusement d’ailleurs! Les houblons poudreux apportent fleur sans amertume, ni en attaque ni en finale. L’alcool est assez bien dissimulée mais réchauffe tout de même mon estomac. Je me répète: cette bien n’est pas mauvaise du tout mais cette étiquette trompeuse me fait hésiter et nuit à l’expérience de dégustation.

Vignale (3146) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 22, 2016
Flaska från SB. Kopparfärgad, klar men med en hel del sediment, lågt kräigt smutsvitt skum. Stor söt och fruktig doft, söta äpplen, torkade päron, aprikos, honung och söta mandariner. Stora maltiga fruktiga smaker som doften, men också blandat lite estrigt fruktgodis. Bra balans och riktigt snygg. En riktigt bra klassisk belgisk strong ale.
