COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A demi-sec ale brewed with whiskey yeasts, from the island of Islay, creating striking dryness and lively effervescence. The nose showcases almond and tropical fruits. The palate is malty, with flavors of plum, dried apricot, and spice. Its finish is dry and warming from the high alcohol. Rare on tap!

Viski mayası mı? Bu nasıl bir açıklama anlamadım. Renk bordo, köpük yok, vaat ettiği koku ve tatlar yok bence.. Hele ki islay??

heavy (2808) - Split, CROATIA - AUG 26, 2016
A 0.75 l bottle that poured a hazy brownish body with small to medium sized ivory head. Dry caramelized sugar aroma, even light dog food with a grainy touch and a bit of wood. Flavor was accordingly lightly sweet, heavily toasted, yet not roasted malts with wide variety of these flavors like caramel, dried fruit, brown sugar, alcohol. Then, strong wood, almost whisky peat bitterish bite came just a bit later. Medium to full in body with a long peaty, malty and fruity sugary finish. A bit weird like most of the Baladins tend to get but this one unfortunately didnt amaze me.

ignorant (113) - madrid, SPAIN - AUG 19, 2016
amber color orange medium dark ruby with orange reflections foam that dissolves very quickly to a thin layer. malty sweetish odor, oranges, dark fruits, apricots, nuts and yeast notes. Vigorous yet delicate. Initially malt flavor and sweet, fruity, tart, leather, spices, butter or nuts to be transformed into a tasty bitter end yeasty, predominantly sweet and pleasant. Very well balanced and tasty, uniform, but also complex. Something vinous.
