COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pumpkin beer

Una birra che Teo ha voluto dedicare al proprio paese, dove “nasce” la BIRRA BALADIN: PIOZZO. Infatti, ormai da numerosissimi anni, a Piozzo si svolge una colorita festa chiamata “FIERA DELLA ZUCCA” dove questo ortaggio è coniugato in innumerevoli ed inimmaginabili modi. Ecco allora l’ispirazione per una personale interpretazione di quella che gli anglosassoni chiamano “pumpkin-ale” e che nella versione Baladin si è trasformata in una vera e propria “torta alla zucca” liquida dove ogni sorso ricorda le golose armonie di dolci alla zucca delle nonne

Bottle from systembolaget. Pours amber with a medium beige head. Aroma is sweet and yeasty with some pumpkin and herbs. Taste is fruity, sweet and rich, with a very fresh feeling. Palate is sticky though thin. Overall a really nice beer, just wish for a smell which is closer to the taste.

eduardovl (1025) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 24, 2014
750ml served In a tulip glass. A: First of all, beautiful bottle art. Baladin bottles are just beautiful :). Pours a murky orange color forming a big creamy and beige head. Great retention and lots of thin and lingering lacings left in the glass. S: Strong sweet and spicy nose. Very fruity too. Strong notes of herbs and cinnamon. Grapes, raisins, candi sugar and crystal malts. Metallic notes. Light flowery hops notes. T: Sweet upfront. Strong spicy notes: Mirra and cinnamon. Sweet bread. Caramel and crystal malts. Light hops bitterness. Light metallic notes in the very end. M: Medium body and carbonation. Molasses. Sweet malts and cinnamon in the aftertaste. O: Good drinkability. Great spicy ale. Reminded me a pumpkin ale.
