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.

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.

Appearance. Pours a fairly clear gold-amber with 1.5 fingers of off-white head that has great retention and leaves some sexy lacing.

Smell. Green apples and Brett funk, some pineapple and a bit of lime, old wet wood and orange. Smells really good!

Taste. Fruity belgian yeast and booze, some light red apple and bitter citrus fruit. Just a bit sweet.

Mouthfeel. Medium+ body, medium-low carbonation.

Overall. We started out so good!!! Oh well, I'll still drink the whole bottle.
