COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

From a bottle. Dangerously smooth and drinkable, I like this a lot more than I’d expected and will keep a look out for it in future.

heavy (2750) - Split, CROATIA - JUL 17, 2016
May ’16. A 0.75 l bottle. It poured hazy golden to amber body with a small head. Sweetish toasted malt aroma, caramel, peach, raisins. Only lightly hoppy like citrus. Flavor was still on the sweeter side, toasted, especially caramel, vanilla, yeast, typically Belgian. Spicy as well, there were some cloves and pepper, too, with light citrus hop presence rounding it nicely. Medium to full body with high carbonation and a long, tingling sweetish finish that also showed light bitterness towards the very end. Very nice beer, well in style with Belgian ales, better they didn’t hop it up too much, achieving an excellent balance this way.

Pinky77 (222) - - JUL 5, 2016
Bevuta in bottiglia. Il colore risulta arancio, leggermente torbida, schiuma beige chiara non molto persistente. Aroma di zucchero candito, nocciole e albicocca disidrdatata, leggero agrumato. Al palato si sente il miele: più zucchero candito, dolce e un leggero agrumato, con un erbaceo sul finale. Birra un po’ troppo acquosa, mediamente carbonata.

Lilja (2678) - 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 (203) - 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 (932) - 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.
