4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour is very pale yellow with a cloudy body. Aroma is wonderful with lemony, yeasty, flowery and grassy notes mainly, very very complex and very satisfying. Medium bodied and high carb. Taste is reminiscent of aroma with a fruity and grassy character, the malt sweetness is cut out by a sharp bitterness that is pleasant in the end. Aroma is amazing, overall great.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2014 My Bottom Line:
Starfruit and white pepper blossom to bitter herbs and cracking straw in this perfectly dry and fluffy Belgian-style Ale.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A mushroom of foam lies undying, lacing from top to bottom, atop the misty straw blond.
-The herbal hop finish is long and endearing.
-Carbonation is expansive and drinkability very high.
-Yeast character is delicate; lightly fruity and spicy.
-Wow, Taras Boulba and Saison Dupont have competition, folks.

Bottle purchased in Rome and consumed in Kosovo. Yellow hazy color, persistent white and tick foamy head. Some sediment in the bottom...that I would have preferred not to pour. Nose of predominant Belgian yeast, grapefruit, flowers and grassy notes. Mouth: overall tartness, citrus, floral notes and grassy bitterness. Dry end. An interesting beer!

Bottle. Hazy yellow pour, thick white head. Aroma of citrus hops, lemon, some yeast and a hint of cardboard. Flavor is quite bitter, citrus fruits and very refreshing. Nice brew.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (330 ml). Clear golden/blond with a frothy white head and heavy lacing. Aroma is a nice mix of grapefruits, spices, grassy notes, breadied notes and fruity esters. Taste is moderately bitter with a good malt backbone, grapefruits and lingering grassy presence. Medium body. Lively carbonation. Dry finish. Super drinkable and quenching! A very nice summer beer, but you won’t notice it’s only 4.4% abv because it’s really tasty. This Extraomnes brewery is really impressive!

decisamente una buona birra anche se un po’ troppo amarognola per i miei gusti.

Se la Hopbloem è fantascenza la Blond di Extraomnes risulta PURA SCENZA: bella schiuma compatta e quando versi questa birra nel bicchiere e la guardi non capisci cosa succedera’ in seguito e neanche al naso ... ma poi in bocca e al palato sprigiona un profumo limonino e piacevolmente amaro che ti colpisce le papille e ti fa’ bere... tanta sete ...

330 ml bottle from beer-shop.it served in a tulip glass. Pale golden colour, slightly hazy, with a huge, fluffy and forever lasting off-white head. Great lacing. Sweet aroma of warm bread, fruit esters, citrus peel, quite hoppy and moderately spicy. Amazing drinkability, crisp and refreshing with a pretty decent fruity bitterness, and just the right amount of malt backbone. Not much spicy yeast interference. Light to medium body, average to lively carbonation and creamy texture. It’s hard to find any flaw, perhaps the aftertaste could be a bit longer, but it’s pretty much great anyway! Extraomnes rocks, that’s it.

colore giallo smorto un po slavato. subito si percepiscono i lievito assaggiato dal fondo della bottiglia e poi senza esitare buttati nel bicchiere. che partecipano con i luppoli alle note speziate e agrumate. il corpo è lieve e sostenuto dalla carbonizzazione equilibratissima. finale più secco che amaro.
