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

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.

A very nice warm pumpkin ale. Reminds me a lot of other winter beer. A little bot sweet, caramel, but enough punch and character. Really nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy (iOs)

Lilja (1783) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 7, 2014
Smak och doft av humle, malt, karamell, jäst, farinsocker, honung, pumpa, kanel med toner av vingummi. Stor sötma, kryddig, bra balans, örtig med fin beska. Kanske den enda och bästa ölen med pumpa som jag smakat. Blir bättre när den blivit lite ljummen.

SamTheBarrel (498) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - NOV 2, 2014
750ml brown Baladin signature bottle with a large cap, poured into a tulip glass. Appearance is opaque copper colored with a large beige foamy head that reduced quickly. Aroma of pumpkin, spices and herbs. Flavours of pumpkin, cinnamon, black pepper, herbs, caramel and a hint of orange zest. Taste is light-medium sweet and medium bitter. Palate is medium bodied, smooth texture and average carbonation. Baladin Zucca is mellow and well balanced, the flavours go well together and it has the right amount of sweetness.

Vignale (2205) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 1, 2014
Flaska från SB. Disig gulornage vätska med krämigt skum. Mycket kolsyra, småbubblig i munnen, lite chewy, murrig lätt söt och kryddig smakbild. Honung, pumpa, pumpakärnor, kanel, jäst, anngen gummi. Välintegrerade smaker och inget som sticker ut eller stör men lite sötmurrig som man kanske kan/ska förvänta sig av ett pumpaöl. Men på det hela trevlig och drickbar.

Sissio (722) - Orsenigo, ITALY - NOV 1, 2014
Copper red with suspensions, minimal pcream orange head. Walnuts, nuts and pumpkin flavor with some hoppiness, roasted pumpkin seeds. Pumpin-like watery in mouth, sweetish caramel malts with a clean ending.
