Baladin – Isaac

The bar La Baladin opens in Piozzo, Italy in 1986, at 1996 it has its own brewing equipment and becomes a brewpub. It was founded by master brewer Teo Musso.

I received this beer as a gift, it was bought at a beer shop in Copenhagen, Denmark. It is a  corked and varnished 750 ml bottle at 5%.

Beautiful beer, yellow going to orange in the colour.

A small head that disappears quickly.

Light and fresh aroma with a weak fruit over it. A good and sweet scent.

Good CO2 level, delicious fruit in the taste, good balance between sweet and acid notes. Sweetness and hops go hand in hand. Soft, velvet and pleasant after taste. Fades very nice.

Overall rating is 86 / 100

Volkan Santorini White

Volkan beer brewery is located on the island Naxos in the city of Santorini, Greece. What is special about the Volkan beer is that the water is filtered in a unique Santorini basalt filter unit which consists of volcano lava stones, Santorini honey and citrus from Naxos.

I received this beer as a gift, it was bought at a beer shop in Copenhagen, Denmark. It is a  330 ml bottle at 5%.

Beautiful and thick flowing yellow going to orange beer.

A small head with a fine top but else a rather rough structure.

Suitable aroma, fruity and sweet, but with a dominating flowery scent to it. Slightly spiced.

Low CO2, a very sweet beer, it is infact extremely sweet, sugary and it is just too much, not a pleasant drink. Its use of honey in the brewing process is not a hit with me. Tastes like a 8-10% beer trying to hide its alcohol with honey.

Overall rating is 71 / 100

Kaiserdom Hefe-Weissbier Alkoholfreies

This wheat beer comes from the private owned brewery located at Bamberg in the northern Bayern.

Kaiserdom have been making beer here since 1718, which for a Bayern brewery could be described as being one of the younger breweries.

I found this beer at a local supermarket in Denmark at the very reasonable price of 2 Euro for a 500 ml can at 0%.

A thick flowing orange beer, impossible to see through from the heavy amount of sediment.

There is little to no head on this beer, not even a little persuasion at pouring can make it have one.

A good, but light, fruity aroma.

Flat CO2, taste is okay, a good blend of wheat and fruit notes, too thin in the after taste.

Overall rating is 73 / 100
