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.

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.

2007, first batch.

I had this fresh, and cellared a bottle. At five years it is certainly more complex, but less refreshining.

If any beer should have popped with autority when removing the cork, it should have been this one. Instead, it was only mildly carbonated with a modest head.

Smell interesting, surprisingly not that funky.

Taste is bizzare, way sweeter than i figured. Perfumy smell carries over to taste. Stil significant bitterness. Fruity and lots of saison tastes. I like it.

Unfortunately, i cant help but compare it to orval, and in that light, it falls short. Good beer.

Thanks to djrn for sending this bottle my way.

The beer pours a hazy orange-brown color with a white head. The aroma is full of toffee and orange citrus, with some brett thrown in for good measure. The flavor is similar, with a few additions. I get some nice toffee and brett notes, with some cherry and dark fruit also in there. There is not really any funk from the brett, which is what I expected. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Shared by whiterascal and poured into a Russian River glass.

Cloudy apricot, with a one-finger head of off-white. The silky bubbles fizzle away within a few seconds.

Spritzy nose. Lemon lime soda, big citrus notes. Lime peel, brett, wheat, hay funk, maybe even some basil.

A little more honey and oxidation here. Citrus is more muted, maybe some lemon peel. Quickly fades to major honey notes, caramel, funk. After the swallow, some vapors of sweet pear linger. Very dry, hay/wheat finish.

High, pinching carbonation breaks the beer into a lot of fizz as it moves. Medium body. Not a hint of alcohol, but the dryness is pretty bracing.

Interesting overall. A funky, bretty, complex, apocalyptic brew.
