Baladin Xyauy Barrel
Brownish with tiny head. Very complex heavy malty profile - lots of caramel, lightly tobacco and woody, lightly oaky. Moderate notes of dark, riped fruits. Nice organic sweet aromas, which mainly comes from rum barrels and whats more are not really annoying. Taste is heavy sweet, override fruits, delicious. In general perfect combination of flavors and aromas, the mastery of oxidation and maturation process.

Aromas of funk reminiscent of crab apples and blue cheese. Taste starts sweet (apples and honey dew) but finishes clean and fairy dry. Definitely a fun experience. Love it! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Piwo brunatne, piany brak. Aromat słodki, suszone owoce (rodzynki, daktyle), przyjemny karmel, gładki, trochę krwkowy. W tle nuty wanilii i kokosa. W smaku bardzo pełen, słodkie, likierowe. karmel, melasa, suszone owoce w cukrze, wanilia i kokos w posmaku, do tego finisz kojarzący się z rumem. Genialne!

Piana obfita jednak dość szybko opada do niewielkiego krążka. Kolor jasne złoto, zmętnione. Aromat słodowy, słodko miodowy, imbir, minimalnie kukurydza dms. Smak miodowa słodycz, kwaskowo cytrynowe posmaki,przyprawowa ostrość od imbiru, no i niestety nieprzyjemne utlenienie w mokry karton. Gdyby nie utlenienie czuć ze piwo ma potencjał do dobrego złożonego piwa, z wadą jest średnio.

Bottle, 14 notes past BBD. Pours hazy straw with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of malt and fruit, with flowers and yeast and touches of hops. Bitterish, hoppy flavour with floral notes and malty and estery touches and hints of dust. Dusty and mildly acidic aftertaste with malty notes. Decent.

Colore rubino scuro, schiuma media pannosa e persistente, lievemente carbonara, sentori di malti tostati, uvetta. Al palato uvetta, cioccolato, liquirizia e nel finale caff. Birra ben bilanciata con un carattere cremoso dove i sentori di caff sono appena accennati.

Versione 2013. Si presenta come un puro liquore, ambra marrone senza schiuma. Al naso eccezionale Aroma di caramello, vinosa, evidente linvecchiamento. Superba al palato con una grande complessit di dark fruits, caramello, dolce e rotonda seppur non impegnativa, marsala, zibibbo, porto. Carbonazione assente, alcol non fastidioso, consistenza oleosa. Da degustazione a sorsi per la sua grandezza.

Baladin Super Bitter
330ml bottle from A Tutta Birra in Milan pours dark amber with tiny slow-forming beige head. Subtle Aromas of caramel malt, stone fruit, citrus hops and floral characters. Flavours of caramel, orange, peach, spices and flat soda. Low carbonation and a little dustiness mute the flavours of this beer a fair bit. Slightly bitter finish with some grapefruit sourness, but definitely not super bitter.

Sampled from a 0.75l 2011 model bottle @ Proletariat. A near clear one as far as I can tell, not head at all and its oak-amber in color, I think as its kinda dark here. Lovely oxidized aroma. Its really nutty infused, a ton of sweet raisins, thick syrupy caramel sauce, Vanilla, hints of wood and Norwegian brown cheese thats been soaked in a little bit of chloride. The last part probably from rinsing the glass. Like what I smell. Oh, its his is good. Fudgy caramel and a lovely sherry sweetness. Theres a few bubbles that prickles on the tongue and its thick and syrupy in the mouth. Warming, dry licorice, Vanilla, apples and sweet concentrate of oranges. Wow. flavor bomb! 19.06.2015

0.33 l bottle from Kaufhof (Bonn), best before June 2018. Hazy, golden orange with a medium large, frothy, slowly diminishing, white head. Sweetish, spicy and slightly fruity aroma of coriander, orange peel, peach and hints of banana. Quite sweet, spicy and slightly fruity taste of peach, coriander, orange peel, some honey and hints of banana, followed by a short, slightly bitter, a little sourish and spicy finish with a touch of clove. Almost medium-bodied, smooth and moderately effervescent mouthfeel, average carbonation. Nice one, a bit unconventional for a Wit, maybe the bridge towards Gose, but definitely pleasant and quaffable!

Tap. Slightly hazy yellow body with a one finger foamy white head. The nose is light Nelson hops with a bready and crackery maltiness. The flavor is pretty light on the hops and bitterness, but quite easy drinking. A little heavy on the yeastiness for me maybe. Light fruity finish. Light bodied with fine fizzy carbonation. Decent golden ale, not overly special.

Bottle at K17. Cloudy golden colour. Soapy and sweetish flavour. Hint of wax and honey. I do not like the wax and soap notes very much, but quite well-balanced for a honey beer.

Oct. 16. A 0.5 l bottle, vintage 2010. It poured a clear copper body with prominent, thicker legs. Sweetish dried fruit aroma, caramel, nuts, some alcohol and wood. Moderately sweet flavor, not too overwhelming although still cloying, malty with more dried and ripe fruits, sherry and then nuts mixing up with a strong wood barrel note. Light sourness popped in here and there. Full bodied of course with tingling sweetish and warming alcohol finish following the flavor. Not so extremely slow going as some from this series, but also complex although the barrel seemed to round it in expense of both sweetness and complexity. A good, serious stuff.

I didnt like the texture which does not remind of Terre of Xyauyu. The white wine notes make it sour and tannic which does not suit this style in my opinion.

En barley Wine i den lettere ende for selvom den holder 10% virker den ikke tung eller stræk. Har en sødelig maltet smag uden ret meget bitterhed - i eftersmagen fornemmer man alkoholen uden at det genere. Skal serveres lettere afkølet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

W nosie średnio intensywnie , mocno słodowe i ziołowe, dodatkowo karmel i przypalona skra od ciemnego chleba. Barwa bursztynowa, minimalna opalizacja, piana chwilowo dość ładna, szybko redukuje się do zera. W smaku słodowe, chlebowe i ziołowe, na finiszu miesza się karmel z lekką kwaskowością. Wysokie wysycenie, gorączka niska, ziołowa. Piwo może mieści w stylu, ale to nie moje klimaty. Butelka do 08.2018.

Bottle, vintage 2011. Ruby, dead flat. Aromas of strong, sweet red wine, raisins, little bit vanilla, after light mixing significant tobacco coming out. Strong, solid and complex. Full body, sweet, oily mouthfeel, flavors of sweet, dried fruits with mat, earthy (tobacco?) slightly tart finish. Very well balanced, just a little bit of alcohol warming in the finish. Extremely good!

Bottle sample at Lambiczoon, vintage 2013. Dark brown pour. Aroma of raisin, caramel, booze, fudge, red fruit and vanilla. Rich flavor of raisin, caramel, dates, vanilla, red fruit, vanilla and a boozy fruity finish. Every drop is an explosion of flavors. Tastes like a marriage between moscatel and a barley wine. Really delicious.

Bottle: Poured a deep cloudy dirty brown color ale with no carbonation. Aroma of oxidized sweet caramelized malt is very nice. Taste is a nice mix of caramelized malt with some residual sugar, oxidation with a light watery finish. Body is full with no carbonation. Very nice level of complexity and oxidation is actually quite well balanced in the mix. The only thing that bothered me is the watery thin finish.
