COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
La birra della sete. Solo malto chiaro, luppoli con profumi agrumati e rinfrescanti, lieviti dalle speziature balsamiche. Amara... con un equilibrio gustativo dissetante e coraggioso.

La prima cosa che si nota è la schiuma: prorompente, candida e di una pannosità quasi solida. Giallo paglierino con netti riflessi verdi brillante. Olfatto dominato da un fruttato agrumato che ricorda il pompelmo e il bergamotto. Al palato è molto leggera di corpo, con lievi iniziali note maltate che lasciano il campo ad un finale rinfrescante con un taglio amaro di discreta persistenza. E’ una birra da aperitivo, ideale complemento di piatti delicati a base di verdure o carni bianche. Da provare con frutti di mare e pesce anche crudo. From the brewer: in our production both Blond and Zest are dry hopped.

Bov (9815) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 12, 2014
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

MrJoller (78) - ITALY - AUG 9, 2014
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.

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 18, 2014
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.

ippopotamo36 (367) - Rome, ITALY - JUL 10, 2014
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! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Vaiz (3568) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 24, 2014
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.

tom10101 (3109) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 12, 2014
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 ...
