The first 100% Italian beer made with Italian ingredients. An intentionally simple beer: Italian water, barley malt, hops, yeasts and two Italian spices (bergamot and coriander) which combine to create harmony and originality. A beer which suggests more or less daring combinations, but more importantly marks a turning point in the Italian production of craft beer. Nazionale, is excellent as an aperitif and goes well with any dish. 13.6° EBC 10

Bedankt Sebletitje. 75 cl. Italiaanse stijl fles gedeeld met Belgbeergeek & Sebletitje @ Belgian Ratebeer Winter Gathering of Ultimate Evil. Helder gouden met een redelijke, stabiele witte kraag. Ruikt naar zoete tarwe, redelijk veel yoghurt, Stille Nacht stijl, heel zoete kruiden, wit brood, kruiden en veel BE gist, overal redelijk Belgisch qua stijl, Italianen zijn de enige land buiten België uiteraard die bij mijn weten Belgische stijl bieren kunnen maken. Redelijk veel yoghurt in de smaak, tarwe, zoete kruiden, wit brood, veel BE gist, stro en lichte bloemen. Veel gist in de structuur eveneens. Geen slecht Belgisch bier ondanks de volledig Italiaanse ingrediënten en de stijl beschrijving op RB. Maar bij de vermoedelijke prijspunt van dit ben ik veel minder geneigd om hiernaartoe te migreren eerlijk gezegd.

Fles van Mitra Bunnik. Doet me denken aan een tripel Karmeliet light, qua geur. Wat granig en kruidig in de smaak. Prima bier

Pyobon (1497) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 6, 2017
(Bottle) Pours hazy golden with big white head. Aroma has peppery spice with subtle sweet fruitiness. Light body with champagne like mouthfilling fine carbonation. Taste is very pleasant and quite unusual. Light and tart balanced with the interesting spice - which having read the description I can identify as bergamot and coriander (but otherwise suspect I would not have identified them). The light tart base has some hints of white wine. There's some peppery spice too. Different, interesting, and very drinkable.

mike_77 (7096) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - OCT 25, 2017
Blond colour with light haze and big soapy head. Fairly strong coriander in the aroma. Really light and fresh but with decent body and enough flavour. Citrus notes and a little yeast.

sinte (596) - Udine, ITALY - OCT 12, 2017
Bottle 0.75L. Hazy, pale golden body with a huge, frothy, white head, mostly lasting with fair lacing. Moderate hoppy (citrus, grass) and light-to-moderate malty (grains, caramel) aroma with notes of white fruits and light spices. Moderate sweet and bitter, light-to-moderate acidic flavour with an average-lasting dry finish. Light-to-medium body with watery-to-oily texture; lively carbonation.

Fin let humlet og god sødme. En lille smule frugt anes i eftersmagen også..

радує що люди люблять свою національність і для її вираження роблять пиво і попуалізують його. усі інгридієнти - італія, пиво легке на випивання із легким відчуттям бергамоту pale, medium sweetness, lightly bitter,

UPDATED: SEP 8, 2017 NOME: Birra Nazionale PRODUTTORE: Baladin Società Semplice Agricola COLORE : Giallo paglierino STILE: Belgian Ale VOL: 6,5% Rieccoci dopo un lungo silenzio pronti ad assaggiare la più 'proletaria' di un birrificio a noi molto caro: la Birra Nazionale prodotta da Baladin. Alla vista si presenta di un bel giallo paglierino incorniciato da una schiuma abbondante e grossolana che non lascia tracce nel bicchiere. Il corpo poco limpido, tipico delle non filtrate, attiva le nostre sapienti papille gustative preparandoci al tipico bouquet aromatico delle Ale. Al naso profumi floreali e agrumati arricchiti dalle note pepate dei lieviti spingono il calice verso la nostra bocca, e...Il primo assaggio è subito una conferma: note fresche fra il pompelmo e l'arancia ci solleticano la gola. Invece del solito pesante retrogusto di lieviti troviamo un finale secco ed erbaceo come piace a noi, semplice ed efficace, senza mai stancare. Proprio per la sua 'beverinità' ve la consigliamo con crostinerie assortite, carni bianche e pesce; lasciamo spazio alla vostra fantasia per abbinamenti più arditi. Si riconfermano gli alti standard qualitativi di Baladin, una tantum vale la pena svuotarsi le tasche comprando prodotti del genere per colmare i nostri bicchieri e le gole riarse.

fkoolen (1337) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 30, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2017 75cl bottle at home. Pours a light golden, slightly hazy colour with a big white foamy head. Grainy and creamy malts, light-medium sweet, spicy yeasts and coriander, green apple, champagne carbonation and mouthfeel. medium body.

Maersk (342) - MOLDOVA - AUG 13, 2017
Hazy golden, huge fluffy head. Citrusy, yeasty aroma. Well balanced, a bit tart, refreshing. Some metal scent in aftertaste. Looks like classic Belgian style beer. Good

carlom (92) - ITALY - AUG 6, 2017
Colore giallo paglierino, schiuma media e compatta. Al naso malto, luppolo, spezie, agrumi, crosta di pane. All’assaggio arancia, pepe, e lievi richiami erbacei. una birra con un corpo leggero ma equilibrato con finale secco ed un’ottima bevuta.
