The beer is a blend of two different amber ales that were aged in the brewery and then refermented with Brettanomyces Lambicus. The roasted and caramelised malts give the beer a deep copper color and flavors of dried fruit, cherries and toffee. The refermentation with Brettanomyces resulted in a super dry beer with some spicy and fruity notes. It’s low in hop flavor and aroma, as well as bitterness. With longer aging this beer will develop more Brettanomyces character.
The Oedipus story, strangely enough, began by drinking beer: drinking lots of different beers from breweries around the world. Oedipus Brewing actually traces its origins to when founders Alex, Paul, Sander and Rick worked in other renowned beer bars.
