334. Ommegeddon

Jadyn and I went to dinner at Christopher's in Porter Square on Tuesday night. I noticed that they had Ommegeddon on tap. It was served in a 12 oz. Ommegang glass.

Beer Stats:

Brewery: Brewery Ommegang
Alcohol: 8.00%
Serving: Tap
Style: American Wild Ale

Appearance (4.5): Pours a hazy golden. Pleasingly turbid, not so cloudy as to look murky, but enough to give a nice diffuse glow to the light passing through. A thin white head fades to a wispy film leaving patchy lace.

Smell (4.0): Bananas, candi sugar, Brettanomyces funk, and a grassy tartness.

Taste (4.5): Initially sweet, with a spicy sensation coming from the tingly carbonation. Fruitiness becomes evident, bananas and something I couldn't place. The finish is a mild Brettanomyces finish: lightly bitter with an earthy tartness. The Brett isn't the strongest, but it works well here.

Mouthfeel (4.5): Light bodied, moderately carbonated, dry in the finish.

Drinkability (5.0): Crisp, tasty with a refreshing dryness in the finish.

Overall (4.45): Certainly not the "funkiest" of beers, but it's still tasty and very tasty. I think it would do well with a year in the cellar.
