33cl brown bottle purchased from Domus Birrae in Rome.
Pours a very hazed, fairly dark golden colour, murky and still in the body. Head forms a very coarse-bubbled crest of whitethat settles out to some filmy pocked bubbles. Lacing forms patchily. It doesn't look all that great. Acceptable though.
Nose is fairly muted, but it has some rounded Belgian tones at least. Slight herbal qualities come through a little, and a suggestion of peppery spice. But there's not a lot to it overall, and to be honest, I'm a little unenthused.
Taste is also uninspiring. Spicy, peppery notes on the mid palate give some bitterness, and a rather harsh, medicinal herbal character sticks around to propagate this bitterness right to the end. Body is very light, with no trace of that rounded sweetness the yeast suggested on the nose. Overall, it's a bit dead, and a little difficult to drink.
Overall, this is a disappointing effort from Extraomnes, who generally do good things. This is a lethargic attempt at a saison, that only really barely scrapes over the genre line.

Volcanic opening. Pours hazy with a large fading head.
Nose shows doughy yeast, spicy phenols, faint floral notes and spicy hops. Also faint sweet malt.
Very dry flavours; doughy yeast and spicy phenols followed by an almost harsh finish and accompanying alcohol.
Way too much carbonation.
