Availability: Rotating

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.

Pours a pale cloudy gold color with lots of yeast haze. Huge white head slowly dissapates to a thin sheet and leaves some lace behind.

Aroma certainly has funk to it. Tart green apple, musty yeast, and a floral perfume. Toasted malt is present as well, providing a platform for the funk. Also has a bit of a soapiness to it. Interesting to say the least.

Flavor is much more subtle than expected. Mildly tart and earthy with lemon, watermelon rind, and green apple. Some toasted grain and light hops come in during the second half. Not too complex and pretty straight forward. Finishes bone dry. After letting it warm up the flavors were way too strange for me - I preferred this one cold.

Light and fluffy on the tongue - mouthfeel is probably this beers best quality. Decent drinkability - so far the easiest and most drinkable wild ale/non-fruit lambic I've had. I am finding that these styles are not my cup of tea.

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.
