PotjeBier (1999) - 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.

Flesje van de Hema. Troebel lichtgoud onder een witte plakkerige kraag, ziet er goed uit. Aroma van gist, citrus, mout. Smaak neigt naar ananas met een droge,bittere wat peperige afdronk.

Alengrin (3221) - BELGIUM - JUL 12, 2015
Peppered saison from a progressive Dutch micro brewery, tasted at Gollem in Antwerp. Very thick and frothy, rocky, lacing, dense snow white head over a vaguely pinkish peach blonde beer, misty. Pleasant aroma of soapy wheat, fresh nettles, sourdough, green peppercorns, sweat, redcurrant, celery, unripe pineapple, sundried tomato and flowers. Crisp, fruity taste, hints of sour berries and unripe peach, a bit overcarbonated, deep basic wheat sourishness, citrus peel freshness, bit bready in the middle, light sourish finish paired with pink grapefruit bitterishness, herbal, earthy hops and dry yeastiness, but very little of the expected chilli heat. Nice saison and credible as such, but I expected more ’oomph’ from this brewery.

33 cl. bottle @ home, gift from Hilde but bought @ Hema, Culemborg. Hazy yellow with a big white head. Spicy aroma with malts and grassy hops. Taste is semi-bitter, finish is dry. Nice spicy saison.

ElManana (1086) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - JUL 1, 2015
On tap at Oedipus taproom. Peppery, yeasty, fairly standard Belgian saison-like, nothing wrong with it, but nothing worth remembering either.

Erzengel (5490) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUN 29, 2015
Many thanks to Roman. Floral nose. The beer starts neutral-malty, fruity-perfumed, fresh, easy to drink, slightly bitter in the end, fresh & nice.

Koelschtrinker (12638) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 29, 2015
Stark karbonisierter Antrunk, leicht hefig. Angenehmer, vielleicht etwas zu milder Hopfen. Milde Kräuternoten, wenig trocken hefiger Nachgeschmack. 11/12/11/11/9/11

JanEric (1126) - Meppel, NETHERLANDS - JUN 28, 2015
Blonde with a small white head, full of carbonation from the bottle. Fresh sourish taste, low pepper though, but the lemeon grass shows up af ter a sip. Strange combination, for a saison, a bit too sour.
