Water, malt, hops and yeast. Thats it! Why? It took a simple beer to express a simple project. And it took an innovative beer to express an innovative project. This is how OPEN BALADIN was created: a beer with a strong personality and at the same time delicately captivating. And this is how this beer the first open source beer in Italy has slowly captured the hearts (and especially the throats) of those who enjoy good, healthy and informed drinking. 27 EBC, 16.8

sebletitje (9556) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 15, 2012
33cl bottle @ RBBWG 2012, Antwerpen courtesy of Diabel. IPA with the look of an abbey, thas my impressions. Dore avec de lger sdiments de levure, col blanc fin disparaissant vite. Comme souvent avec les bires italiennes on peut sinterroger sur le style, ici je retrouve plus un profile dabbaye, surtout dans la levure. Malt caramel avec une pointe de houblon pour lamertume, reste assez douce et un ct plus belge. Assez dcevant, surtout quand on a dj pu goter de belles merveilles venant de cette brasserie.

JorisPPattyn (9673) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JAN 15, 2012
Short-lived white head over pale orange-golden beer. Bit milky, lactic nose, milkchocolate. Weird. Finishing expressly almondy. Again milkchocolate, creamy, and a hint at sourness. More almonds or marzipan. Slick, and again: milky MF, strange. Bitterness seems to come as an afterthought. Unbalanced, weird, unsatisfying. I do not know what the brewery intended, but I doubt this is an IPA in anyones book.

harrisoni (17594) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2011
25cl bottle from The Grove Huddersfield. Not expecting this to be any great shakes as they were selling it off cheap in the pub. No mark on the pub mind. Get rid if beers are filling up fridge space. So not expecting it to be full of hop life. It is indeed not great. Hops have died to leave a sickly toffee beer with some bitterness on finish. Nit great and i will re-rate if i see a fresher batch.

Se dovessi valutarla come una India Pale Ale sarebbe insufficiente, ma in s a me non cos dispiaciuta.

skortila (5473) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - OCT 10, 2011
Bottle @ YNWA, Kolding. The aroma is light fruity hoppy, bit malty. Hazy, golden coloured beer with a medium, white head. The taste is bitter, malty, light caramelic, some fruits. Quite carbonated. Quity a heavy one for the stomach.

tommann (3496) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2011
250ml bottle. Pours a murky gold with a large head. Aroma is earthy, grassy hops, touch of banana and cooked veg. Taste is mostly cooked veg. A bit earthy in the finish, maybe a hint of hops. Fresh in at the shop that day, so fuck knows if its poorly made or stuck with distro. American beers get to the country fresh so no reason why an Italian beer cant.

JulienHuxley (5691) - Trois-Rivires, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 30, 2011
Bottle thanks to hoppypocket. Light hazy gold pour, white head and medium lacing. Aroma: Lots of cooked veggies, earth, old grain some alcohol. Very brash. Taste is musty grain, again very earthy. Just doesnt feel very refined. Definitly bad.
