Garden has a nice brown color, reminiscent of a monk’s tunic, and a thick head with chestnut hues. It has pleasant scents of roasted chestnuts and smoky notes.
When sipped, the taste of roasted chestnuts emerges again, accompanied by touches of amaretto and carob. A slight astringency leads to a bitter and peaty finish.
Water, barley malt of our fields, smoked malt, hops, sugar, yeast.
Drying malt on an open flame may give it a smoky flavor, which is then transferred to the beers made with this peculiar ingredient. Even if the oven drying technique was only introduced in the industrial era, the method was known since the first century BC.
Going back to these historical data - and as Baladin Open Garden has an old oven from the 15th century - we came up with the idea of experimenting with a beer made with malt from our fields, dried and roasted in our oven. In 2017, the result is Garden Baladin, dedicated to Baladin Open Garden: a place to share and spend time together.
