The amber version of OPEN, OPEN RISERVA combines the features of caramel and amber malts with the aromas of American hops. The result is an explosion of well-balanced taste, where the biscuit aromas coming from cereals and the notes of dried fruit blend perfectly with the bitterness and the aromatic scents of hops. The body is strong but never excessive, to ensure it is easy to drink. The head is thick and creamy. 16.8°, 33EBC.

750 ml bottle from a friend. Pours deep and nice slightly hazy amber, thick and creamy head, stays well. Aroma is really nice, full of ripened fruits, some tropical hops, sweetness but not too much of it. Strawberries. Taste has some fruits as well, hop bite is there but not too strong as the beer I have is maybe not the freshest. It might mean that there is more focus on body and malt character, doesn’t feel too much like an IPA - but that doesn’t bother me the slightest, it is still great beer, fully enjoyable. I guess the best I’ve had from Baladin till now.

Bottle from Eataly, Milan; bb nov 2014, L178/120
Hazy amber color with medium sized frothy head. The aroma is fruity (jam) and bit yeasty (vegetable). Dry mouthfeel, too much carbonation; lean body; some malt flavor, not exciting though; a bit fruity and fresh, buy also yeasty; the bitterness is quite strong.
The yeast has a too high impact on this beer, but the hopping is quite nice.

Vi høyner innsatsen på rbhd-treffet hos Odd Gunnar: Theo Musso imponerer gang på gang, her med en lekkerbisken som gir ganglag for sjelen. Stor aroma og smak med massevis av tørkede frukter og appelsin. Stor munnfylde og myk som en kvinnehånd. Heldigvis en stor flaske, så jeg tar med glede en påfyll.

Hazy orange. Dense off-white head. Refreshing aroma of oranges and orange marmelade. The same can be said of taste. High drinkability.

Sigmund (5462) - Tau, NORWAY - JUN 13, 2014
Shared 750 ml bottle at local tasting. ABV is 7.5%. Orange colour, moderate white head. Nice aroma of biscuits, raisins and other dried fruits, hints of chocolate. The same elements in the flavour, but the beer is not too sweet. Good stuff, Teo!
