Baladin Esprit de Noel is unlisted at RateBeer because it does not fall within the guidelines we've created for "rateable" beers, sakes, mead or cider. We have created this page so that users understand that this product has been reviewed and it has already been determined that it may not be listed. Please do not attempt to add it in order to rate it.
A brief list of potential reasons for being unlisted is below. There may be additional requirements, which might also affect a listing.
The item was never commercially available
The recipe for the product is the same or reasonably identical to an already listed product by the same producer
The product contains no or almost no alcohol
It is not fermented
A non traditional cider or perry is marketed as having flavor profiles distinctly different than the base fermentable fruit, and reliant on added flavorings rather than whole fruit, raw honey or other whole source materials
The product does not contain at least 50% fermentable grains, fermentable honey or apples or otherwise fails a test of product authenticity
A sake that is not Japanese or in the Japanese style, not fermented with koji and/or was not processed with Aspergillus
Protests against an Unlistable status for a product will be heard -- please use the Feedback link below in the footer -- however, if the item is marked as Unlisted, the individual case has almost always been thoroughly investigated and discussed by regional experts, and a change in status is very unlikely.
