4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
from Fork&Bottle - murky dark blond beer under a huge white foam; solid lacework; juicy grapefruity hoppiness with hints of citrus, oranges and yeast; medium-bodied, pretty tart and assertive; subtle yet solid carbonation; sour and bitter; dry and long fruity hoppy finish (star fruits come to mind) and some lingering sourness - a great beer, somehow a cross between a Saison and an American Pale Ale

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!

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 ...
