Oakes (18756) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 10, 2017
Bottle, Belmont Station. Light amber, hazy, with a big head. The aroma is quite fruity - pears, hops, light yeastiness and esters. Earthy palate, yeasty, a bit of malty sort of cookie doughish quality (actually might be diacetyl), which is odd for this type of beer. The fruity elements are downplayed on the palate, as the malt and yeast are more prominent. Not getting the lemongrass or huajiao at all I'm afraid. Decent Belgian ale.

Mpuntmuts (266) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 6, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2017 Yellow hazy with thin fast dissipating head. Spiced aroma, yeast, wet dog. taste is yeasty with some pepper. Quite bitter and dry aftertaste. Thin and fair bubbles. Not too crazy about it.

Bue en loundge, versée d'une bouteille, cette bière a un petit goût de poivre pas désagréable.

Citronnelle, poivre de Sichuan et Sorachi Ace, voici des ingrédients devant permettre une saison quelque peu exotique. Et sans considérer les quelques imperfections de structures, cette Mannenliefde d'Oedipus est plutôt agréable mais sans grande prétention toutefois. En verre, blond pâle trouble (EBC aux environs de 18) avec une mousse blanche nappant tout juste la surface. Le nez est relativement doux et fruité sur l'orange, la pomme et la poire, bien relevé par la citronnelle et le poivre. L'attaque est fraîche et avant tout fruitée sur le citron, l'orange, la pomme et la poire ; la citronnelle et dans une moindre mesure le poivre se faisant moins ressentir. La deuxième bouche se densifie alors et laisse la citronnelle s'exprimer davantage. L'arrière bouche quant à elle est très fraîche sur une bel houblon fruité. La troisième, qui monte sur l'amertume (IBU de 30 bien calibré) présente également une acidité trop présente à mon goût venant perturber la ligne aromatique. Le final, bien que trop court, laisse cependant les arômes bien spécifiques du sorachi ace en bouche. Bière amusante!

Bottle. Hazy golden, tiny white head. Brown sugar and sweet citrus aroma. Interesting, nice even. Classic saison taste, but creamier, spice, lemomgrass, creamy, nice!

Draft. Golden body with white head. Aroma is slighty sour and fruity with some herbs. Taste is nearly the same but with more malts. Aftertaste is nice balanced.
