PotjeBier (2925) - 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. Aromas: 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.

Grumpelmies (171) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 4, 2017
Bottle. Appearance reminds me of a Duvel... Aroma is citrus fruits, lemongrass and hops. Taste is lemons, black pepper, grass and straw. Aftertaste is not that pleasant. Balanced and refreshing. A little bit more fruitiness and yeast character would have been nice. Ok.

GvanGool (57) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 4, 2017
No explicite taste for a saison. The beer looks OK and drinks pretty fast. Personally I like te label more than the beer. Although its not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Holmen1 (5327) - Stavanger, NORWAY - DEC 29, 2016
Fra flaske p romjulstreff i RBHD des-16: lys korngul med ok skum. Deilig aroma og smak av de anvendte rvarene sitrongress, pepper og Sorachi-humlen (sitrongress, te, dill og koriander iflg skriften). Godt er det uansett nr det serveres i en slik fint balansert kombo. elegant og luftig bitterhet, tilfreds og lett til sinns heller jeg den over ganen.
