New Extraomnes from Italy
Extraomnes Zest Dry Hopped Belgian Blonde...$7.99 / 11.2oz
Rated 96/100 RateBeer
Rated 99/100 in its style RateBeer
AWARD FOR BEST BEER BEER FESTIVAL - ITALY MILANO 2011
Golden appearance with green “vibrations” and a white, compact, persistent head.
An intense nose of Orange blossom, decided hints of yellow fruit and citrus (lemon, grapefruit).
A delicate hop spiciness and the lightweight body due to the absence of residual sugar make it refreshing and very drinkable.
Dry, sharp and prolonged finish.
Extraomnes Straff Belgian Strong Ale....$7.99 / 11.2oz
Rated 93/100 RateBeer
STRAFF has a misleading innocent appearance, beautiful and golden with a white creamy head.
The nose of fresh fruit, apricot and melon, Mirabelle brandy and a slight earthy note reminiscent of the style.
The initial soft palate is immediately damped by a bone-dry cutting, caused by the virtual absence of residual sugar, and a balanced bitterness.
Extraomnes Tripel...$7.99 / 11.2oz
Rated 95/100 RateBeer
Rated 97/100 in its style RateBeer
Bright golden yellow appearance with a creamy white head.
Alternating scents of yellow fruits and peppery notes in the nose.
Soft, slightly phenolic mouth feel that is enriched by hints of candy sweetness but is well balanced by a strong dryness that leaves your mouth clean and ready for another sip.
Fatty and succulent meats or mature cheeses are ideal food pairings.
