Bottle pour at the Great Japan Beer Festival in Osaka (7/13/2013). Fruity and bit stinky. Orange/amber color. Sweet fruit > flattens out quickly > some balance in final. Seems much more like a fruit beer than an APA (at the festival, it was called an amber ale). daniele (9063) - ITALY - JUL 17, 2013

Bottle at the GJBF Osaka 2013 a lovely amber golden pour, a definite hoppy aroma. Much more hoppy than the classica but the flavor had a light zesty carbonation with an enjoyable hoppy aftertaste. More true to style than the Open Classica. I think I have the taste as the brewmaster at Baladin as I enjoyed all of their beers at the fest-especially the Isaac & Super.

Nice creamy longlasting head. Aroma is leafs, bark, caramel, grass, herbs, weeds, grain, hops. Taste is slightly sweet, caramel malts, bark, soil, weeds, leafs, grain, hints of cardboard and almond essence. Medium bitterness. Not really sure what I think about this one. Not my favorite at least.

Bottle 750ml @ homeRune (12795) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 19, 2013
Pours slightly hazy deep golden/copper with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, peach, pine and orange. Taste is light to medium sweet and light to medium bitter. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.
750ml bottle bought at Vinmonopolet Langnes, and shared with friends at a tasting session. Opaque, apricot coloured body. Good lacing from a decent off-white head. Aroma of sappy oranges, lightly spiced. Mid-sweet flavours of spiced fruity hops, earthy malts and celery. Semi-sweet, malt-fruity ending. Well balanced. Gentle, smooth and nice (Tromsø 03.06.2013).
