Notes/Commercial Description:
Ommegeddon is a Belgian-style ale with a wild twist; a dose of Brett yeast and a blast of dry-hopping. Its dryness and funkiness beget the name.

750ml bottle purchased for $12 at Lucky Baldwin's Delirium Cafe in Sierra Madre, CA. Poured into a tulip glass.
Had a cloudy dark gold color topped with an expansive white head that showed good retention and left rings of lace down the walls of the glass.
Smelled quite fruity with notes of peach, mango, nectarine, and citrus all mixed in with a spicy blend of coriander, clove and white pepper. Some lighter bready malt tones completed the ensemble. Hints of Brett added a bit of nose-tweaking funk.
Tasted fruity-sweet up front with lots of different tastes vying for attention. Orchard fruits scrabbled with straw-like malts and the spicy, peppery pop like a trio of ferrets stuck in a pillow case. Funky Brett-inspired sour flavor completed the mix and added a pleasant dimension to the overall package. The feel was light, with a prickly sizzle on the tongue thanks to the large dose of carbonation.
Overall, a pretty nice brew, one I'd get again. Ommegeddon doesn't have the massive Brett funk that other wild ales (Mo Betta Bretta comes to mind as does some Russian River brews) do but it's still a tasty offering worth picking up.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Bottled June 2007. Batch #1.

A: golden orange hued. Frothy head.

S: barn aroma. Smells dry. House saddle.

T: little bit of bubblegum flavor. Minor oxidation? Touch of grain is fleeting before Brett dryness takes over.

M:ample carb on a medium body.

D: aged well. Wish there was more Brett and farm funk. If you still have any drink up, I don't see this getting any better.
