COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Complessa ma non difficile. Corroborante e beverina, come nella rigorosa tradizione stilistica delle Saison, birre del pranzo estivo contadino. Al naso e in bocca è un’esplosione di fresca solarità.

Oro brillante sormontato da una meringa di schiuma fine e compatta. Naso caratterizzato dalla speziatura tipica del lievito utilizzato, pepe fresco su un floreale bianco che ricorda il sambuco e il tiglio. La bocca, dopo un attacco morbido,si distingue per una piccante freschezza,che termina con una luppolatura vegetale e balsamica che ricorda la radice di liquirizia. Si sposa bene a piatti caratterizzati da una buona grassezza e anche speziatura, come salumi e affini. Resiste anche a carni di selvaggina e sorprende su piatti speziati della cucina indiana.

Aroma is somewhat fruity but complex can’t pinpoint the characteristics of it. Grainy cereal taste followed by fruity ctrus spicy notes. The cereal character is amazing. Mouthfeel is very good.

Alengrin (1294) - BELGIUM - AUG 12, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2014 Another Italian micro brewery with fine artisanal ales, in this case predominantly Belgian by style. This one pretends to be a saison and boasts an enormous, off-white, rocky head (caught after gushing) that nevertheless quickly decreases, and a misty, warm orange blonde hue - so far indeed saison-like. Powerful yeasty aroma, caramel, bread, gingerbread, orange juice, lemon peel, vanilla, field flowers, jute, paper, white pepper... Again very consistent with the saison style. Taste citrussy with sharp spicy notes (pepper, ginger) and strong, tingling carbonation, orange peel, yeasty, soft sweetish malts, bit nutty, sweetish, finishing in a herbal and grassy, bit peppery hoppiness, bit harsh ending also due to the strong carbonation (not that surprising in view of the gushing). In short: though a bit over-carbonated, this brew has understood the essence of the saison style very well. Very curious to meet the other Extraomnes beers.

MartinT (7779) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 18, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Banana esters, hay-like cereals, bready yeast and herbal hops coalesce in this beautifully expressive and supple Saison.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A dollop of foam decorates the misty golden.
-Mild tartness accompanies the noble hop finish.
-Citrusy fruitiness splashes the second half of each sip.
-All flavours are intertwining perfectly.
-The tap version was as good, if not better, than the bottled version.

Bottle and on tap at Brasserie 4:20.

Celest (126) - - JUL 5, 2014
Pale blond from draft, no foam, fermentation not okay with bad tones of yeast in the aroma. Light body, yeast, light hops, too yeasty, flat.

Cloudy yellow, creamy white, long lasting head. Very good sweet fruity smell with orange, apricot and melon aromas with some hops. Sweet and sour spicy taste, licorice and hops in the finish.

Ragnampiza (386) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - FEB 19, 2014
330 ml bottle from beer-shop.it served in a tulip glass. Rich sunrise orange, slightly hazy, with a fluffy and persistent off-white head. Looks great. Quite hoppy nose, well complemented by all the others saison qualities: rye bread, flowers, pepper and spicy yeast notes. Moderately sweet and as expected quite dry. Slightly bitter and peppery as well, with a citric aftertaste. Average carbonation, medium body and creamy texture. Ironically, less "traditional" (in my opinion) than other Extraomnes saisons, but still pretty tasty.
