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!
