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

3fourths (9296) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 29, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2011 75cl bottle. Unfiltered hazed honey colored body with a fine-bubbled off-white head. Nose of pineapple cake from the tropical/citrus hops and the cake-like bready malts, awesome. Unique and new, this beer like most Baladin does not fit in with any defined style, but is something new and interesting and stands alone. I am quickly falling in love with Baladin who has rejuvenated my once-stagnant interest in artisan beer thanks to their perfectly executed experimental recipes. The yeast character and structure of this beer are divine. Lovely throughout. Wheres my "hotel room rate taking in a foreign country" award? And bonus points if it were in Italian? :/

Keg at Baladin Bologna. It pours a clean golden color with a medium tan head. Aroma is floral, fruity sweet, lightly yeasty. Taste is also moderately sweet floral and fruity with notes of lemon, melon and grass. Light biscuity malts. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, ok

American hop aroma. Pleasant flavor with toasty malt and citrus hops. Dry finish. Nice.

Restrained aroma in a golden pour. Strangely Belgian flavour profile for an American ale - but very tasty regardless. It is hard to rate these Italian brews as they are somewhat unique.

Bottle. Unusually choclaty for an american pale ale. Not as refreshing as I like them to be. OK.

armando629 (2456) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 2, 2015
On tap @ Open Baladin, Rome.
Honeyish yellow body with a froathy white head. Aroma of honey and some herbs. Medium-full body with malty sweetness, not a well hidden alcohol - but well hidden hops. Except more.

lesifflebiere (1788) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 14, 2015
Boisson ple, couleur bl mr, un brin trouble et orne dune opulente mousse blanche grosses bulles. Nez de citron, de fleurs des champs, et de baies. La bouche est un peu crayeuse, pas mal sucre et moins mince quil ny parait. Pas exactement haute buvabilit, mais la densit de saveurs y est pour quelque chose. Agrable et fruite, mais il faut aimer le genre.
