Oedipus Thai Thai
Draught at Bryggerifestivalen 2017. Shared with Finn. White head with fine retention. Clingy lacing down the glass. Cloudy, warm golden body. Modest spiced fruity nose. Rather refreshing flavours of citrus and citrus shells to the start then overrun by the chili part. Not easy to drink. (Trondheim 04.08.2017).

Aroma is decent. Hop bitterness is there, but I miss the floral aroma experience. Malt body is medium to full, which is good, but overall it’s a bit far from what I call an IPA. Meh overall ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Oedipus Kinderyoga
Bottle from de Caigny in Essen, Belgium. The beer is very dark brown to black colored and has a creamy and large head, with good carbonation. The aroma is malty, with notes of roasted malts, caramel, dried fruits, licorice, dark chocolate, coffee, nuts and some spices in the background. The taste is full bodied and sweet with notes of dried and dark fruits, caramel, roasted malts and goes to a nice dryness with hints of dark chocolate, coffee and some spices. The finish is dry and light bitter with some warming alcohol.

Pleasant bitterness. Not too much. Flavours of pines, which isn’t strange as this was used during the process.

De pepersmaak overheerst in dit bier. matige diepgang, Citrus, kruidig, maar vooral dus de pepersmaak blijft hangen, Weinig subtiliteit.

Goede gose van Oedipus. Aroma: wat yoghurt, grapefruit. Mondgevoel meteen vettig en vol. Smaak: eerst karnemelk, dan zeezout, gevolgd door de citrusschillen. Maf bier, maar in de goede zin van het woord.

Oedipus / The Commons Transatlantic Foosball
One of Oedipus’ many collaborations, this time with an Oregon craft brewer; bottle bought at a Mitra shop in the northern Netherlands. Apparently a kettle-soured ale, connecting with the 16th-century northern German Breihan theme but hopped with Sorachi Ace and fermented with a Belgian yeast strain - modern craft brewing is all about combining elements from different traditions, rediscovering forgotten methods, and at best elaborating on them, of which this is a very clear example. Initially medium thick, snow white head quickly stabilizing as a dense moussy rim with open middle yet dissolving into close to nothing after a while, over a clear, pale and purely straw blonde beer, turning into a more ochre-tinged, hazy blonde with sediment. Aroma of salted lemon flesh, fresh green seaweed, soap, unsugared yoghurt, pickled gooseberries, cold Sauerkraut, sweat, spoiled milk, dry white wine, yellow plum peel, raw unripe pineapple, green banana, fresh dill (the Sorachi Ace I assume), minerals. Crisp, lively onset, dryingly lactic sour from the start, yoghurty but with a wakame-like umami and salty touch as well, Gose-ish, hints of unripe banana, pineapple and Granny Smith apples with a lemony sourness cutting through it as well; minerally carbo, light but still proportionally ’full’ body. Cereally middle with white bread-like qualities, soft mouthfeel likely due to the oats, bit creamy even, while this lactic sourness persists and dries the mouth cavity in a very pleasant, utterly refreshing way. Ends dry due to that same sourness, crisp and vivid, fruity but not estery, with a dash of mild, ’green herbal’ hoppiness to it, adding very soft ’structural’ but not really ’tastable’ bitterness with a retronasal dill or even vaguely fennel leaf-like aroma to it (again: must be the Sorachi Ace), yoghurty and lemony, bit yeasty in the end, with subtle bready notes. Very quenching and pleasant little beer, but that soft, yet clear saltiness links it much closer to a ’modern’, 21st-century Gose than to Breihan, which did not use any salt at all (and was very low in hoppiness) if the historical records are accurate. I’d rather consider this a very loosely, ’generic’ German-inspired ’kettle sour’ (Breihan is often quoted as the historical inspiration for Berliner Weisse which seems very relevant here), but in all respects a very good one at that - meeting my expectations when I see the name Oedipus. Pleasant, original and refreshing, recommended.

Bottle, 0.33l. Hazy deep golden color with thin quickly diminishing off-white head, floating yeast particles and soft visible carbonation. Aroma of coriander, wheat, yeast, pepper and spices. Taste starts with medium sweet toasted and bready malt, following is grassy and yeasty with herbal and ginger note, mouthfeel is warming spicy, while finish is moderate bitter. Full body, thick texture and average carbonation in palate. Fuckin’ gusher, more than two thirds of a bottle went out...

On tap at Planet Oedipus Festival 2017 on 13-Aug-2017. Aged in Calvados barrels. Black with virtually no head. Aroma of brandy, roasted malt and coffee. Full body and soft carbonation. Taste of cocao nibs, coffee, roasted malt, brandy and wood. Very boozy. The calvados overwhelms and in my opinion takes away from taste of the Kinderyoga. I found this difficult to finish.
