750ml bottle served in a tulip glass.

A: first of all, beautiful bottle art, Le Baladin trademark. Pours a pale cloudy yellow color forming a huge big bubbled, aired and soapy white head. Huge retention and lots of spotty lacings left in the glass

S: Quite herby and lemony in the nose. A malty backbone with strong notes of flowery and citrus hops. I would dare some wheat and some orange zest

T: Quite herby in the mouth too. The upfront can be slightly sweet but it quickly changes to a dry and bitter overall taste. Some notes of coriander and orange zest. Hops are significantly bitter and citrus too

M: Medium body. Good carbonation. Citrus hops aftertaste

O: Great drinkability. Excelent La Baladin specimen, as expected

Beer poured from bottle into a Tulip-stemmed wine glass; picked this up at LoSfuso - Turin, Italy. Made with the finest Italian-only ingredients and only distributed in Italy.

A - Beer pours with a nice two finger sized, white colored head; body has a cloudy golden straw color; no visible carbonation and not much lacing formed either; head held well, but besides that, it didn't look as full or healthy as I would like

S - Belgian white beer spice nose; white wine, champagne refreshing scents, rather airy, couldn't really pinpoint exactly what I was smelling, lager nose; hop scents are of light weeds and grass; honey; floral and slightly herbal, like a chamomile;

T - Dry herbal taste; tangy and sour; sour white grapes; not much hop flavor; lacking much of a malt identity, kind of airy like a lager; rice; grassy

M - For what its worth, the flavor was consistent, from the sip's - start to finish; tart around the edges; slightly dry bitter aftertaste from the hops

D - Alright drink; needs more malt flavor; washes down pretty quick; great step in the right direction, I'm glad to see Italy break out of its "wine" laden past and building on something new
