About The Beer
Style: Belgian Strong Ale
Format: 330ml Bottle
2011 - The new year begins with a provocation from Baladin. Faced with the pervasive idea that “the more bitter, the better”, Teo decides to disguise his most representative beer - Super Baladin - as something that seemingly followed that trend. How? By adding American hops using the dry hopping technique. However, he manages to balance them with the natural sweetness and the malty notes of the original beer. This is the origin of Super Bitter - whose name is more bitter than the actual beer. In fact, in the United States it is curiously sold as Super Floreale, to highlight its overwhelmingly flowery nature, rather than the bitterness.
Super Bitter is an amber ale with a persistent, light hazelnut coloured head. Fruity and warm scents immediately invade the nose, harmoniously blending with the delicate herbaceous and citrusy notes of the hops. We find them again in the taste, along with the hints of cereals that are perceived with the very first sip. As the first sensations fade, a pleasant and very subtle peppery note emerges.
