A few months ago I found a bottle of Ommegeddon at my source of fine ales. Knowing that this was getting to be a tough beer to find I grabbed the bottle and headed for the cashier. I finally decided that today, the wonderful spring evening, would be a great time to crack this one. The bottle was from June 2007 so it has about a year of age on it.

The pour was fantastic. It has a thick and steady head that slowly dissipated and left a nice lace down the glass. Aroma had a bit of funk to it, but that's a good thing for this beer. The taste was wonderful. A bit dry, a nice Belgian bite and some some lingering funk from the Brett. The taste was close to that of a lemongrass tea. It was a very light and refreshing beer. The 8% ABV was no wear to be found in the taste; until I drank the whole 750ml bottle.

As they say on Ebay. A+++++++ will buy again.

Now for the money shot.

I had some at Brewtopia's holiday party last year. Don't remember much except a slight but not overpowering sourness and that I wanted to try it again.

Oh I love this beer. First saw it like 6 months ago and it was wonderful. Nice dry finish and a slight amount of sour tartness that was great.

Nice review. I have three in my cellar, and now I'm sure that I'll drink at least one this summer.

Seriously though, thank you for the review, nice to know these are ready to drink. About time!

I have one aging as well and plan on letting it continue to age. Good to know its drinking well now though. I just gotta find some funky blue cheese that can stand up to it...
