Oedipus really know what they’re doing when they name their beers. Quite refreshing, even with that hint of spice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(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.
