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.

This is Batch #3, April 2008.

Pours a clear fiery orange that reminds me of the explosion portrayed on the label. The explosion was also present in the form of a cork that nearly shot itself out immediately after I uncaged it. Fluffy white foam is well-retained and there's a large amount of visible carbonation. Moderate funk in the nose with hay and a whiff of cheese/musty. Light tart citrus is present in the aroma as well. Barnyard appears as the beer continues to warm up. Flavor is a blend of citrus and light toasted malts, a dash of herbal spicy, and a crisp acidity that's likely coming from the Brett. Sparkling, brisk carbonation keeps the palette on alert and a medium-light body really helps make this a refreshing and drinkable beer. There's some warming from the alcohol but it doesn't hinder the session.

When I found this beer in my cellar last week I was surprised and concerned, wondering how I'd manage to lose track of it and hoping it had held up well. As I continue to pour more into my glass, I'm delighted at how delicious this is. Wish I had another!

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled in March 2008. Pours lightly hazy golden amber color with a 3 finger foamy white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of lightly tart apple, pear, grape, lemon, pepper, clove, earth, hay, bread, herbal, and earthy yeast spiciness. Very nice aromas with good complexity and balance. Taste of pear, apple, lemon, pepper, clove, earth, funk, bread, herbal, hay, grass, leather, and yeast spiciness. Lingering notes of light fruits, citrus, pepper, clove, earth, bread, funk, hay, grass, and yeast spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity and balance of flavors; with a nice malt and peppery flavor balance with good brett character; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very crisp, prickly, and lightly slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with nearly zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent brett saison! Nice amount of flavor complexity and balance; and very smooth to sip on for an 8% brew. Really enjoyed this one.
