3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Oedipus Mannenliefde) Bottle 330ml, at home. Poured into a tulip glass. ABV 6%
Golden orange colour on the body, mostly clear, with a good sized white head, thick, wiht good retention, leaving light lacing on the glass.
Aroma of perfume, saison yeast, grapes, malt, sugar, fruits.
Taste has lots of floral notes up front, becoming nicely fruity on the finish. Yeast, some apricot, a touch of sourness. I don’t notice the lemongrass or the sichuan pepper (the latter I am not really familiar with).
Medium thin body, quite carbonated. Good dryness on the palate.
A good saison.

Draft. Very tiny head. Fris ’green/grass’ aroma. Floral, slightly bitter with hints of lemongrass. I’m not sure if i can find the Sichuan pepper which they used... There is a bit of spicyness, but more herb-like. Tasty and nice refreshing beer.

Clear golden with orange hue and medium sized slight bubbly white head. Nice dry grain character, slight sour citrus, spices, dry bitterness in a raw-vegetable kind of way. Medium to light bodied with dry feel and full carbonation. I hardly get the peppers in this, but veru decent saison.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy ale, white head. Nicely aroma-hopped nose and taste, big on yeasts and malts/wheat, spicy and in fact indeed a little hot. Big flavours: acidic, creamy and a tat bitter. Mouthfeel and body have a good bite to it, lively carbonated. A very nice saison.

Bottle from Ton Overmars. Pours gold with a thin white head. Aromas of Belgian yeast, citrusy fruits, grass. Flavor is mild, with some lemon, hops, yeast, and not so much carbonation. Hints of pepper. Aroma more interesting than taste. Not bad.
