330 ml bottle. Bottled on 10/09/2015. From demolenbeershop.com.
Clear amber golden color with a mid-size white head. Fruity hops, mild bitterness, some citrus and mild caramel maltiness in the aroma. Not bad. The flavor is fruity and resiny hops, moderate bitterness, some airiness, mild dryness and caramel maltiness. Balanced and rather tasty. I could have another (fresh if possible).

Oedipus Panty 3.7
Oedipus, Amsterdam. Very creamy tan foam on lighter-than-pure-black. Pretty. Deep oaty stout aroma. Smooth, creamy body, big oatmeal stout, bitter chocolate and bitter coffee. Lacking something up front but a great big rush of rye harshness. I love the finish. Brash but weak first impression.

Zlotta
Oedipus Zwangerschapsyoga 3.2
0.33 l bottle from ’De Bierkoning’, bottled in November 2015. Clear, very dark red with no head but with a few white bubbles on top of it. Slightly roasty, sourish-fruity aroma of dark chocolate, coffee powder, cherries and redcurrant. Sour, fruity and slightly roasty taste of redcurrant, cherries, dark chocolate and some coffee powder, followed by a short, moderately tart finish. Thin body, actually slightly watery, totally flat. Quite pleasant, some carbonation would have been nice, a bit too thin as well. Flavour profile is rather interesting nevertheless, reminds me of Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte.

JorisPPattyn
Oedipus Slomo 3.4
Short-lived white head over coldhazed golden beer, medium carbonation visually. Pale malts, spices, fertilizer, citrus or lemonthyme. Fresh-citrussy flavour on a sweeter malt background. Some wheat acidity, it seems. Light body, spritzy, refreshing. Much better than the sum of its parts. And for once, a beer that can carry the moniker "saison" with reason.

Oedipus Wilde Jaren 2.9
Sampled from cask at ’In de Wildeman’. Slightly hazy, brownish red with a tan head. Sweetish-fruity, slightly spicy aroma of some caramel, red fruits, licorice root and juniper. Sweetish-fruity, spicy taste of caramel, nuts, licorice root and juniper, followed by a short, slightly bitter, spicy finish. Thin to medium body, slightly oily mouthfeel, flat. Interesting, but not really my kind of beer.

Oedipus Dodo 3.2
Very huge, thick & dense yellowish head, stable, leaving some lace over well-carbonated copper-orange beer. End of bottle solid yeast; Intense herbal and toasted malts’ nose, bit peppery and fusel-y. Bitter-herbal, human sweat, copperflavour, and finish has some malty sweetness. Bitterish Petit Lu. Warming up, I get a rye-like flavour, other grains. Light body, feels very carbonated, slick. Reasonable balance, not bad at all. Still, as to "Californian Steam beer" - the Anchor is a precious relic, in the case of the followers... rather a gimmick.

Oedipus Poppenkast 3.7
Great, I jotted down the numbers in my little notebook but forgot to add anything else. What I remember is that this is a fairly straight up beer, unlike other Oedipus stuff. But that can make this too apparently. Tap at the Bierfestival Groningen.

Oedipus Salty Dick 3.7
Tap pour@Berliner Weiße Gipfel 2016, Oedipus workshop. Lime and grapefruit peel-infused, Amarillo&Mandarina-hopped Gose. Very easygoing kettle sour, brewed with great balance. Takes tequila down to sessionable beer strength, adding a summery juiciness that is hard to resist. Quick and crisp finish, slightly wheylike and watery.
