Oedipus / Upright Donuts
Slightly hazy, golden. Enormous foamy off-white head. (I had to quickly drink some of it before it overflowed my glass.) Aroma is yeasty, wheaty. I don’t really get anything reminiscent of a donut, but it’s not a bad beer otherwise.

Oedipus / Brew By Numbers Thanks David
Bottle, pours brown with a tiny head. Doesn’t look very good, doesn’t smell very well, tastes ok. ish. Sour, salt, wheat, lemon (so far so good), fruit (ho hum), some off putting notes. Fairly watery. Somehow the colour doesn’t fit the beer at all. I do like the name though!

Oedipus / Buxton Voicemail
Bottle from Biernavigatie, bottling date 22/07/2016 BB 22/07/2017, 33 cl sample. Slight hazy copper color, medium frothy head with lasting lacing. Aroma has burned caramel, slight spices and dried fruit. Soft sweetness, again with burned notes, caramel, toffee, spices and dried fruit. Medium carbonation makes it look good, but it is a tad harsh and full bodied because of it. Belgian styled ale, which a Scotch is, that has plenty to offer, but is not gonna be a classic for me. Decent though.

Hefiges Weißweinmatsche Apfelessigfest der krass mineralisch säuerlichen Sorte. Interessant wie das Bier nach dem extremen und fast aufdringlichen Aromenspielen, im Mund dann doch noch die Kurve zum durchaus konservativ zu bezeichnenden, wenn auch angehopften, Trunk bekommt. Nett. 0,33l Flasche aus CollaboPack. 24€ bei BEYOND BEER HH.

Oedipus / Anchor Lekker Gezellig
33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Gall&Gall Culemborg. Clear dark brown with a tan head. Malty aroma with orange peel and juniper berries. Taste is medium bitter and all spices really contribute to the overall flavour. Only thing I didn’t really like was the somewhat astringent finish which hinders the warming elements in the beer. Otherwise an interesting tasty beer.

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.
