ALIBALI (1611) - Kiel, GERMANY - APR 6, 2017
Sehr dunkles Aussehen, fr ein Saison. Fast brunlich. Der Rest klasse, toll haltbare Krnung und ein krftiger Duft, der Holunderspliabteilung. Im Mund dann ebenfalls zum Teil ungewhnlich. dominant winesour, stumpf hefig und angest wrzig. Crazy und wenn man wei was drin ist noch abgefahrener, pltzlich erschliet sich der Dilldampf und die gelbe Senfschrfe. Interessant, aber leider etwas zu unausgewogen und zu doll mit der Citrussauerkeule, trotz des allmchtigen Nelson Sauvin. 0,33l Flasche aus Holland. Hatte allerdings auch keinen Fisch im Haus 😀.

Alengrin (5116) - BELGIUM - APR 2, 2017
Bottle at Oedipus Taproom in Amsterdam. Tightly lacing, pale greyish white, irregular, moussy head, cloudy orange blonde robe bordering on amber with visible strings of fizz on the sides. Aroma of dried dill and mustard seed powder indeed, next to orange peel, jute, dust, hay, red apple, minerals, dry bitter herbs, ripe apricots, almond (or even very light marzipan). Very spritzy onset, strong and numbing carbonation (overcarbonated even for this style), dry peach, apple peel and red berry impressions establishing a restrained dry fruitiness, minerally side notes, smooth cereally and slightly caramelly malt backbone, rounded but coarsened by the sharp carbonation, drying spicy finish with retronasal mustard seed (almost old and dusty) but far less dill, peppery and hayish hop bitterness, bit resinous and sufficiently drying. Both spices have been applied both cleverly and generously, working well to accentuate the hop bitterness and rural, dry herbal character one tends to expect from saison, overcarbonated for sure but refreshing and accomplished enough.

Lore (2573) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 4, 2016
hazy amber colour, large, dense off-white head; aroma of dill, mustard, earthy, barnyard, as well as citric acid notes; taste is fully dominated by dill and mustard with earthy and citric notes, maybe some vanilla, too; one of the strangest beers of my life...well, it is a bit too much for me...

Christos (5466) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - SEP 14, 2016
(Oedipus Lekkerbek) Bottle 330 ml at home, served into a shaker, ABV 5% One of my first Oedipus beers, seems my rating got lost, again. Dark orange colour on the body, mostly clear, with a tall and thick snow-white head on top, with very good retention. Aroma of malts, light sugars, lots of dill. Taste has dill again, mustard, malts, its like I am drinking pickles juice. Medium thin body, high carbonation. Not much saison character, I remember it to be better.

MaartenRF10 (1944) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 8, 2016
Licht troebel donker amberkleurig, licht crmekleurige kraag. Ik dacht na een dagje vissen vangen dat dit wel toepasselijk was. Maar hoewel erg mooi bij vis, dille bij het bier was geen goed idee...

33cl bottle at home from Mitra, Maarssen. Nose is citric, wheat. Body is opalescent copper amber, head is very big, rocky, fully lasting, excellent lacing. Aroma is fruity, mustard, bread, wheat, grass. Medium sweet, medium fruity and citric sour. Finish is medium lasting fruity medium sweet-sour, light hoppy bitter. Medium body, slick texture, average carbonation. Quite easy, interesting, not really my style.
