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 ciň, in bocca rimane fedele all’identitŕ 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 piů 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

Pours hazy copper/red with big white fluffy head. Aroma of ripe fruit, yeast, hay and barnyard. Taste of fruit, some caramel and hay. Its a dry bitter finish with some metallic feeling. Medium body. I like it.

Piwo nalewa się piękną, wysoka pianą, bogato zdobiąca szkło. Barwa jest miedziana, a piwo jest klarowne do momentu nalania osadów z dna butelki. Aromat jest intensywny, pierwsze skrzypce grają słodkie cytrusy: mandarynki, pomarańcze. Następnie pojawiają się słody i karmel z kandyzowanym cukrem. Całość przypomina trochę owocowe landrynki. Smak również przywodzi na myśl landrynki, w tle lekki karmel. Goryczka zaznacza swą obecność już na samym początku i pozostaje w ustach aż do końca, jednak przez cały czas jest na równym, niskim poziomie. Piwo pozostawia posmak słodkich, kandyzowanych pomarańczy. Alkohol jest dobrze ukryty, a całość lekko rozgrzewa. http://dziennikpiwny.blogspot.com/

Mas Plenum @Vinocom, of course. :) Now, Baladin’s a solid brewery, and when they name something "Super Bitter", that’s what you expect. But nah. This poured a misty amber body. Spicy orange aroma, very light alcohol on top of some sweet maltiness, very light aroma hops perhaps. Sweet, soft, creamy malty taste with mild fruity aromatic hopiness again. Tasty but too light, and 35 IBU’s not that bitter, now is it?

Baladin ha cercato di luppolare una birra da non luppolare. risultato.....slegare una birra che sarebbe stata buonissima. Infatti l’odore derivante dall’amarillo (in dry hopping quasi sicuramente) sovrasta il resto e rimane solo nel naso, visto che il corpo importante e i sentori caramellosi e di frutta secca (e anche di frutta sotto spirito) quindi di una dolcezza al limite della stucchevolezza dominano al palato. InZomma......

Kita (1235) - Koper, SLOVENIA - OCT 26, 2014
Bottle, 0.33l. Hazy orange amber color with medium creamy tan-like head, plenty of floating particles and soft visible carbonation. Aroma of caramel, dried fruits, wood, vanilla and tropical fruits. Taste starts with light sweet but rich caramel malt, follows by dried fruits and yeasty acidity, firstly medicinal then warming spicy mouthfeel and mild bitter finish. Full body, creamy texture and average carbonation in palate. Nice Belgian strong ale, still not fantastic...

Deep hazy amber color, almost copper, with medium white/yellowish head, slowly disappearing. Smell is yeast, some fruits like mandarine, apricot/peach. Taste reveal more maltiness, caramel, honey. Medium carbonation. From the name I expected more bitterness, so I suppose that the normal Super has to be very sweet. Anyway, a good beer, enjoyable.
