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.

Very good, fine & dense white head over lively carbonated veiled yellow beer. Sharp, spicy and grassy hops. Bit gassy and rubber/sulphur. Bitter, hoppy & vegetal. Greenmalt, and yeast byproducts. Very spritzy to gassy MF, light to medium bodied, some gristslickness; refreshing. Seems to me as if it has loads of potential, but somehow isn’t... finished, fully ripened.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - JUL 24, 2012
Bottle. A hazy medium yellow beer. with a huge, frothy/creamy., lacing, mostly lasting, white head. The aroma is lightly malty (bread, cookies), moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs, lemon, grapefruit), lightly to moderaly yeasty (dust/basement), with notes of honey and pepper. The flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, dry and very long finish with moderate to heavy bitterness. This is my third or fourth sample of this stuff and everytime I’m blown away by its cleanliness, neatness and simplicity. It reminds a lot of Taras Boulba. Really great...

KyotoLefty (6724) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 16, 2012
Draught at Open Baladin Roma. Cloud blonde with a tall, pillowy head. Nice hops in the nose—dry lemon, grass, herbs. Bready, biscuit flavor with dry green hops, pepper and spice. Now sweet, but with nice grain and good non-American hop flavor. Nice dry bitterness. Clean, light and crisp. Great for low alcohol.

Bel esempio di Belgian Ale...al naso lievito in quantità e finale agrumato... in bocca si sentono prima i malti per poi lasciare spazio ad un agrumato piccante che invoglia al sorso successivo...extraomnes non delude mai...

Mortlach (1005) - Rome, ITALY - FEB 12, 2012
03/08/2011 Bir&Fud Bottega (330ml bottle). Bionda sporca, lievemente torbida, un po’ spenta, con riflessi arancia, bel cappello di schiuma bianco sporca, abbastanza persistente. Al naso è lieviti, speziata, con un bell’agrumato e note erbacee. In bocca è amara, secca, malto, lieviti, e luppolo, perfettamente aderente allo stile. Corpo medio, buona carbonazione. Un po’ accademica, ma ineccepibile.

mgasparri (7) - - JAN 27, 2012 does not count
Fantastica schiuma pannosa, compatta e persistente. Agrumato al naso, con il luppolo che risalta in modo deciso. In bocca è abbastanza amara, il luppolo è ben presente ma non esagerato. Il finale asciutto e secco invoglia a berne altra. Birra abbastanza semplice da bere, ma al tempo stesso ottima. Birra essenzialmente per i periodi "caldi" o per gli amanti del luppolo. Da provare anche la versione Dry Hopped.

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2013 Un bell’esempio di stile, blond belga con tanto agrumato, freschezza e beverinità.
