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.

Stupenda belgian extrabeverina! Oppalescente con schiuma bianca compatta. Al naso erbacea e speziata (note d’alloro). In bocca super bilanciata e riccamente luppolata amara ed interessante. Il sapore persistente è molto erbaceo e gradevole con note speziate conferite anche dal lievito. Finale un po secco. Una birra davvero buona! Bravi Extraomnes!

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

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - NOV 25, 2013
Bottle. A hazy pale to medium blonde beer, with a large, frothy, lacing, mostly lasting white head. The aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (flowers, herns, grass, grapefruit), lightly to moderately yeasty (cobwebs/dust), with notes of orange, pepper. The flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Light to medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, very dry and long finish with heavy bitterness. One of the most complex. refined, drinkable and satisfying sessio beers I’ve ever had. Worthy rival of Taras Boulba and all the best hoppy belgian pale ales/saisons.

Mortlach (1886) - Rome, ITALY - JUL 13, 2013
13/07/2012 Open Baladin (tap). Dorata, lievemente torbida, schiuma bianca abbondante e molto persistente. Al naso lievito belga, note agrumate con leggeri sentori floreali. In bocca ha un equilibrio e una beva fantastica, il finale è amaro, secco e pulito. Corpo medio, carbonazione corretta. Elegante, bilanciata, ma di carattere. Belgian Ale di squisita fattura, quanto di più vicino alla mia concezione di birra. Chapeau!

MartinT (9267) - 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.

dreadnord (1012) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 22, 2012
Draft a Birra Del Borgo day. Pours pale yellow with a small white head. Nose is sweet spices, ginger and corriander. Bready with light pine. Taste is mostly bitter with a bit of sweet for balancing, yet bitter overcomes on the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is crisp and clean, light body and a long dry finish. Refreshing.

Ragnampiza (751) - 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!

fiulijn (18725) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 1, 2013
Draught at BQ via Losanna, Milan
Hazy golden color with creamy head. Very nice hop aroma, with delicate lemony touch, some grassy sweat, light cellar smell; Drie Fonteinen meets yuzu. Smooth mouthfeel, very dry; it has a sharp spicy character, some yeast, light citrus peel, and then a relatively strong bitterness.
Original and very good.
