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

Not quite the sum of all its parts. Has a thickness to its aroma and taste that shows off malty hops

Stasera assaggio la seconda delle tre Baladin che ho trovato in bottigliette da 25, altra bella (e buona) sorpresa dopo la Super della settimana scorsa. In italiano non riesco a descriverla dato che mi vengono fuori termini tipo "dorato profondo" o "note di pino", magari andrebbero pure bene ma sono abituato allinglese quindi: deep golden color, medium off persistent white head, caramel aroma with citrus (grapefruit) and peach notes, citrus and pine mildly bitter flavor, dry finish with herbal notes aftertaste, nice. Anche in questo caso la dicitura IPA non deve fuorviare il giudizio, sono birre che vanno contestualizzate e non paragonate alle illustri e canoniche rappresentanti dei generi etichettati. Ecco cosa succede se scrivo in italiano...insomma, buona dai.

A10101100 (7) - - FEB 20, 2012 does not count
Bottle pours a cloudy coppery amber, with some brown scattered sediments. Light weak head that dissipates fast. Sweet floral aromas with caramel, banana and apricot notes. Very active carbonation. Medium bodied and a full palate with a crisp finish. Sweet malts complements the hoppy bitterness. Leaves a smooth espresso like aftertaste.

Bottle. Clear golden amber, little white head fades to nothing. Big sweet resinous nose, honey, hint of almond, hint of marmalade. Juicy sherbet front, hint of citrus, great prickly mouthfeel, slightly sweet resinous finish. Tastes more like a weird Belgian Double IPA than a normal IPA.Nice though.

diabel (1693) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - JAN 28, 2012
Clear blond body with a white fizzy-creamy head. Aroma of flowers and some light malts. Quite well balanced. Moderately bitter, lightly sweet flavour - nice hoppy. Ok balanced.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 22, 2012
25cl bottle @ RBBWG 2012 thanks to Diabel. Golden blond coloured with some very small yeast parts and a short white head. Heavy yeasty vanilla spicy (almonds?) hinted aroma. Full palate. Finish is full malty and yeasty herby hinted. Not bad, but would not indicate this as an IPA, limited bitter hints and more yeasty notes.

DSG (13956) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 20, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2013 Re-rate 2/6/13: Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks Naama Halevi. Light hoppy nose, floral and citric. Sweetish malty flavor with caramel, honey notes and a bit of bitter hops in the finish. 6/3/6/3/13=3.1

Bottle sample at a tasting at Dagans place. Thanks troubles. Slightly hazy golden. Grainy aroma with some fruitiness, cereals notes and light hoppy notes. Sweetish flavor with a bit of malt, fruits and a slightly drier finish (but the sweetness is always there). Medium-bodied. 5/3/6/3/12=2.9

14/I/2012 25cl relief bottle (no labels) @ RBBWG 2012 - BB: n/a (2012-36) Thanks to Diabel for bringing the bottle!

Clear blond beer, some sediment floating around, small aery white head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: yeast, cheese, mold, spices, marzipan, almonds, cinnamon. MF: good carbon, light to medium body. Taste: pretty sweet, marzipan again, toasted and sweet malts, little bitter. Aftertaste: spices, bit (fresh) cheesy (Pashka, if you know this), sweet.

25 cl. wine/champagne-style bottle sampled @ RBWG 2012 thx to Diabel hazy golden with a white head, smell is sweet with white chocolate, yeast & spices (?), taste is equally puzzling, sweet, white sugar, milk chocolate (not in a potentially awesome way), marzipan, floor & spices, creamy body, I am not getting this one
