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

Birra molto singolare di la baladin con una buona quantità di zucca che esalta i suoi profumi e il suo sapore. Promossa. ---Rated BY Italianbeer85

Bottle, bought @YNWA Beershop, Kolding. Pours hazy red amber with a small, creamy off-white film head. Aroma has sweet malts, coriander, cardemum, spicy, light sweet. Medium carbonation, fine dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has good sweetness, lots of pumpkin, soft spiciness, coriander. Quite elegant bitterness.

peponi (347) - POLAND - JUL 14, 2014
Aroma: malty and caramel. Appearance: nice hazy amber-orange color, por white head. Taste: low bitterness, nice maltiness, caramel, biscuit, honey, smooth, a little bit sweet but it is hard to find pumpkin notes. Palate: medium body and low carbonation, smooth finish. Overall: Nice smooth beer with a nice malty backbone, but it is hard to say that this is a pumpkin ale.

Grzesiek79 (3205) - Radom, POLAND - MAR 22, 2014
Bardzo pyszne piwo o czerwono pomaranczowym kolorze. Metne i to bardzo, Lepkie slodkawe i miodowe akcenty w smaku. Przyprawowe i jakby likier amaretto w smaku. Slodowa glebia niesamowita. Piwo malo chmielone i malo wytrawne. Slodowa tekstura tu dominowala ale jak ze przyjemna. W zapachu kwiaty polne i aromat dyni. Niewielka piana ale mimo to wspaniale piwo

Bottle @ Baladin Bistrot. Nice head with good duration. Color is hazy amber. Aroma and taste are pumpkin, spices, notes of caramel, fruits and hops. Nice and not overspiced as many other pumpkin ales are.

This fine pumpkin ale is maybe the nicer addition to Baladin’s classic line-up. Spiced with myrrh and cinnamon, it has a warming feel perfect for autumn; some bottles are more characterised by pumpkin, others play subtler in the aftertaste, such as the one I tasted this monday. Only flaw could be the exaggerated carbonation.

ogivlado (5716) - Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 28, 2013
Bottled 750ml. -from Eataly Torino. Cloudy orange/golden coloured, medium sized off-white head, spicy nose with hint of pumpkin. Sweet malty, light salty (pumpkin possible), some caramel and spices with light alcoholic finish. Unusual but good.

fiulijn (14552) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 26, 2012
Bottle from Eataly, Bologna
Hazy red-amber color, with generous but fizzy head. Delicate cinnamon aroma; for once, this is not the vulgar pungent cassia, but a true mix of granma cakes as promised; light cardamom too. The body is good, the mouthfeel is smooth, possibly dry; mild malt flavor, with very moderate sweetness and a delicate fruity and spicy touch. Correct bitterness for this beer, i.e. low.
Although not a fan of the style, if you look for a pumpkin beer, this is the one.

JulienHuxley (3054) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - JUN 8, 2012
Bottle at mondial. Nice clear gold-copper pour with white head. Pumpkin "aroma", light spice, mainly nutmeg with a hint of ginger and clove. Taste is spicy, slightly sweet but not sticky. Palate is well carbed and super mellow, easy drinking and enjoyable. Very fun beer, can’t wait to buy a case with my friend.
