Type Italian Blonde Ale
Pairing A very versatile and flexible beer. It can be sipped with a burger, a good pizza, a plate of octopus and potato salad or ravioli, as well as with soft or medium-aged cheese. A beer that offers endless possibilities.
This beer has a deep yellow color, a very subtle hazy appearance and a white, fine, persistent head. Its delicate scents are a perfect example of balance between the fruity, herbaceous and malty components, and give it a light aroma that invites you to drink.
A sip of Nazionale reveals a little masterpiece of connections between individual tastes. Its notes of chamomile and citrus fruits, balanced out by the gentle bitterness of Italian hops - grown and harvested on Baladin’s own hop fields - make it simply complex. A clean beer that is easy to drink and will satisfy those who want to drink well, with no compromise.
Production Directly grown barley malt and Italian hops with a blend of spices and citrus peel. High fermentation. Unfiltered and unpasteurized
100% ITALIAN CRAFT BEER
Baladin is committed to supporting Italian agricultural products. Nazionale is made with:
- Water from the Maritime Alps
- Barley malt from our fields in Basilicata and Apulia - Italy
- Hops from our fields in Piozzo and Busca (Piedmont) – Italy
- Spices from central and southern Italy
- Yeast grown at the brewery in Piozzo (Piedmont) - Italy
September 2011: the birthdate of Nazionale, the first 100% Italian craft beer, made with the barley malt produced in Melfi, hops from Cussanio (planted in 2008 in partnership with Tecnogranda and Cussano agricultural college), coriander, orange peel, and the yeast selected by Baladin in Italy. It is certainly a milestone in an important project that, over the years, sees Baladin striving for 100% Italianness.
The effort involves searching for ingredients from all over Italy, with the commitment to create close ties with suppliers from many Italian regions in order to involve them in the process of transformation of their raw materials. In January 2012, Baladin has become farm brewery with one mission: supporting short-chain from the Earth to the glass.
