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

TedE (811) - 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 (1108) - 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.

Renobob (1545) - Besançon, FRANCE - JAN 30, 2016

Vignale (3062) - 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.
