PotjeBier (1694) - Amsterdam, - NOV 7, 2012
On tap @ Beer Temple (still the first batch brewed @ De Molen). Barman/Oedipus brewer Sander told me it was brewed with Sorachi Ace hops, lemongrass, szechuan pepper and other spices. Murky red-brown color. Uneven off-white head. Aroma’s: spices and herbs, anise, caramel, lightly acidic, medium bitter. Flavor is herbal spicy, lightly acidic, medium bitter. Body is medium. Finishes herbal spicy, dry, bitter. Some moderation on the spice side would be good.

Bottled. Several samples on several occasions. The aroma is light peppery, bit citric, has hay. Slightly hazy, yellow coloured beer with a white head. The taste is light bitter, bit citric, bit spicy. Refreshing beer, easy drinker. Bit watery body. Nice.

Lore (1069) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 23, 2014
hazy golden to orange colour, huge, but not too dense white head, which however lasts for several minutes; aroma of floral notes, hints of honey, bread, some sourness, yeasts and earth; taste of floral hops, tropical fruity notes, some honey, bread and spicy notes; good saison

Douberd (2296) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - AUG 9, 2014
(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.

33cl botle at Café Gollem. Hazy golden with a medium white head. Medium body with light to moderate carbonation. Bitter and sweet tones. Yeast, spices, herbs and citrus. A nice tasteful brew.

TrefwoordPunk (808) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JUN 26, 2014
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a clear yellowish golden with a small white head and an aroma of sweet malts, floral hops, honey, sweet citrus, spices and yeast. The taste is medium to heavily sweet with a short- to mediumlasting bitter finish with some slight peppery notes. Nice and pretty original.

Maakun (594) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 14, 2014
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.
