Centesima cotta Extraomnes
Paglierino chiarissimo, brillante e con una schiuma abbondante e screziata.
Profumi che rimandano ai due luppoli nobili usati anche in dry hopping:L’arancia dolce per il Cascade e il floreale bianco con un tocco di vegetale piccante del Saaz.
In bocca è molto asciutta grazie allo stakovismo del lievito Saison.
Ritorna in via retrolfattiva l’apporto dato dai luppoli con un finale di erbe amare che vorrebbe ricordare le Saison bevute nell’Hainaut ai primi del ’900.

Extraomnes 100th batch.
The color is very pale straw yellow, bright, with generous head.
The aroma links to the two noble hops used also as dry hopping: sweet orange from the Cascade and white flowers with a touch of tangy herbs from the Saaz.
The mouthfeel is very dry, thanks to the hard work of the Saison yeast.
In the palate the hops appear again, with a final of bitter herbs that reminds of the Saison brewed in Hainaut in the beginning of the 1900’s.

Saison magnifica, speziata, amara, secca, una coppa dura meno di un minuto... altro capolavoro di EO!

33cl bottle labeled with a "cascade" sticker (maybe a single hop version still without a Ratebeer entry?). Pours slightly hazy golden with a beautiful white head Aroma is malts (biscuits), lemon, spices, yeast, floral notes. Taste is very refreshing, slight acidic and with a good final bitterness and some yeast again. Watery texture, medium body, light carbonation. Would classify it more as a Saison than as a Belgian Ale. Very good nonetheless.

Abio (1643) - Waasland, BELGIUM - AUG 2, 2014
Golden coloured brew. Good sized head, could hold some longer. Bitter and hoopt, a bit simple but not bad.

MartinT (8247) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 18, 2014
My Bottom Line:
This fluffy, citrusy Saison lays out cracking straw and growing herbs in a dry and balanced vehicle.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam tops the misty straw blond.
-The flavour profile is delicate and very quenching.
-The hop bitterness is rather generous.
-The citrusy zestiness works well with the Saison yeast.

On tap at Bir&Fud.

fiammanghilla (701) - Genova, ITALY - MAR 18, 2014
Bottiglia 33cl bevuta da giangaspero frutta e verdura. Chiara con bella schiuma. Citrica, leggera e beverina. Un po' troppo astringente ma buona. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhold

mecafilo (122) - Perugia, ITALY - FEB 6, 2014
On tap @ Elfo’s Pub, Perugia, Italy. Pours with a gold hazy colour, small white head. Aroma is medium malty, softly hoppy, medium yeasty, with notes of barnyard, basement and soft notes of cheese. Taste is dominated by salt; quite right at first touch, but gets a bit too aggressive after a while (I was thirstier after drinking this than before!). Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation.

BlackHaddock (4370) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2014
Draught in Rome on 11th Dec 2013. Poured a cloudy orange/amber colour with a white head. I thought this a sweet and sour sort of beer, floral and fruity yet with an undertone of sourness that gave it a bitter finish to every sip. Highly carbonated it was a little to ’fizzy’ for my palate but I still enjoyed it.

Ragnampiza (558) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - DEC 4, 2013
330 ml bottle from beer-shop.it served into a Teku. Slightly hazy and pale canary yellow, with some green-ish/olive oil tinges and a bright white head. Light notes of citrus fruits, mainly mandarin, floral hops, white grapes and definitely a strong spicey saison yeast presence. Strong herbal bitterness in the mouth with a very pleasent and dry finish. Light to medium body, average carbonation. Clean, crisp, refreshing. Chapeau Schigi!
