COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Una piccola concessione all’attuale “trend” sulle birre amare... ma neanche troppo. Si presenta ricca di profumi “luppolacei” grazie al generoso uso di un luppolo americano dal nome di “Amarillo” ma, nonostante ciò, in bocca rimane fedele all’identità baladiniana, ben equilibrandosi tra sentori di caramello e frutta secca. Questa ”deviazione” ha dato origine ad una birra che ha reso la mitica Super Baladin ancora più beverina e di facile bevuta e ancora una volta gli otto gradi di questa birra sono ben equilibrati con la sua struttura. 18.2° 33 EBC

fiulijn (20515) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 2, 2013
Bottle from A Tutta Birra, Milan; bb Jan 2014, L196/110
Amber color with red copper hue, hazy; well carbonated, with medium sized creamy head. Mild aroma, some spicy yeast (less than true Belgians), very light fruitiness (apricot jam). The body is thinner than expected; it’s well carbonated, so the mouthfeel is smooth; it has a light flavor of malt and reminds the beers brewed with honey (no honey flavor, just the thinner mouthfeel), and light macadamia nuts; the bitterness is relatively low (with surprise considering the name), and in the final it has a light metallic aftertaste.
A good beer, quite Belgian, delicate and easy to drink.

Theydon_Bois (19510) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2014
Keg at Open Baladin, Roma, 09/02/14. Golden amber with a moderate off white swirl that thins to simple edgework. Nose is fruit cake mix, spice, toffee, dark fruit tangs, candied orange peel, tarte fruit notes. Taste comprises caramel, bitter orange, spice, light tropical fruit notes, bread dough, light booze, hop presence, grassy. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying finale. Ok easy drinker for ABV but also lacks much in the way of depth for the ABV. Typical IT Belgian style offering, easy on the palate but doesn’t ask many questions of it either.
