Bottle at the Drunken Duck; pours a hazy gold with a white head; sweet aroma of fruits, yeast, spice, and hints of hops; taste is bittersweet yeast and citrus fruit balancing the hops and spices; has a dry finish; alcohol is nicely hidden; very nice beer.

Looks.. Darker straw/yellow, med head
Smells.. Hay/straw, citrus zest, candy sweetness
Tastes..caramel, caramelised pear, citrus acidity, lingering caramelalts with pepper like spice and the perfect hint alcohol burn. What a great saison! brianza_ale (213) - ITALY - JUN 6, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2014 Medium white thick and creamy head, deep golden dark orange hazy colour. Very particular fruity, spiced, melon, orange, peach, apple, pepper, earthy aroma, slighlty smokey. Taste followes very much the smell, fruity, spiced, with nice amount of sweetness. Full bodied, low/medium carbonation, creamy/oily texture, slighlty dry finish. This beer absolutely hides the alcohol and 9,5 %vol. Probably one of the real best Italian Saisons/Strong Belgians. Nice!! Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 27, 2014
Bottle in Italy. Golden pour with some floaties. Aroma is spicy, peppery, some caramel and a tiny bit dusty. Flavor is quite spicy, bitter and warming. Thick body and a nice balance. Ragnampiza (751) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - APR 30, 2014
330 ml bottle from BG Birra, served in a Teku glass. Slow gusher. Deep sunrse orange, pretty hazy and murky looking (with tons of little particles), and an average, creamy and persistent white head. Good lacing. Mesmerizing aroma: light funk (diapers) on the nose, a hint of alchool, fruit esters, light yeast, slightly toasted malts, quite fruity overall. Less dry and more sirupy compared to others Extraomnes saisons, slightly more sweet than bitter. Citrusy, and slightly herbal aftertaste. Pleasent warming sensation down the throath, but it’s ridicolous how easily drinkable it is, dangerous 9.5% beer! Good zingyness helping to clean the palate. Average to lively carbonation, medium body, slightly creamy texture. Another winner from one of my favourite Italian brewery.

8/IV/14 - 33cl bottle from Geers (Oostakker) @ home - BB: 28/II/15 (2014-356) Deu (948) - Nantes, FRANCE - APR 20, 2014
Pretty cloudy dark orange beer, big creamy off-white head, pretty stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing. Aroma: lots of orange peel, sweet and sugary. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: sourish start, citrus, sweet and sugary, bit spicy, bit of a smoky touch, alcohol, soft bitterness. Aftertaste: bitter, lots of orange peel, bit oxidized, some honey, alcohol, little sourish, bit sugary, bit smoky, alcohol burn in the end with some dried fruits.
330ml bottle. Dark orange colour and forms a big, dense white head. Aromas is floral, some hay/grass, slightly earthy, citrusy orange notes, sweet caramel. Taste is yeasty and fruity esters, wheaty banana and slightly spicy with a citrusy freshness in the finish. Nice bitter finish. Big and airy carbonation, mouthfeel is soft and rich. Very loyal to its Belgian roots, not bad at all. BrunoSanchez (190) - Fermo, ITALY - APR 19, 2014
Ottima belgian opalescente al colore con schiuma ricca ed adderente. Al naso spuntano note di mela verde e legno bagnato che ricordano al Calvados della Normandia. In bocca è corposa e calida. Amaro ed alcool si bilanciano alla perfezione rendendola "pericolosa". Gusto floreale e fruttato con un finale liquoroso secco e leggermente acido che lascia la bocca pulita. Birra da non perdrere!!!! Bevuta nella Birroteca Vaffallupolo alla spina. Finn (7547) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2014
Flaske 0,33l fra Johnny Off-License, Roma. Kjøpt av Rune og delt under seanse hos ham 27 Nov 13. Lys aprikosfarget. Litt uklar. Lett luftig skum med litt lacing. God plommearoma. Smaken litt krydder & hint av mandler. Avslutter tørt. Alkoholen skinner igjennom. Rune (12795) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 1, 2013
Recommended 330ml bottle, lotto 364, bought at Johnny’s Off License in Roma in April 2012. Partially gushing revealing a frothy white head with firm lacework. Cloudy golden body. Candied fruity smell. Sweet flavours of grapes and malts with a yeasty fruitiness beneath. Sweet fruity ending. Noticeable alcohol. Alright, too much on the sweet side though (shared with Finn, Tromsø 27.11.2013).
