4.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
HUGE thanks to xpimptastikx for bringing this beer to our impromptu/epic tasting last night. 750ml corked & caged bottle into a Ranger Creek tulip.
Hommage pours with a rosy, violet-amber hue studded with a fine yeasty haze. A pink, Valentine’s day head retains surprisingly well. Gorgeous beer! Sadly, the aroma has not held up to age as well as the appearance. Big phenolic notes greet the nose alongside a leathery, cheesy, funky armpit presence. Cooked asparagus and green olives were suggested, and I agree. However, sniff past the pickled funkiness and there are some nice acetic berry tones lurking beneath.
All is forgiven upon the first sip. This Lambic is heavenly in flavor, with a super tart lactic punch to the sides of the tongue offset by a decadent, funky raspberry jam note in the middle. Mouthfeel is dry, tart, and refreshing with a perfect carbonation level. Overall, an amazing beer; I am grateful that I got the opportunity to try Hommage. It’s a shame the nose hadn’t held up, but the deliciousness more than makes up for that fact. Thanks again Michael!

@sbwf16. Mycket god. Massor av bär i doft och smak, sur, jäst, fräsch, torr. Riktigt bra!

En mycket trevlig öl, fruktig och syrlig på samma gång. Röda bär som exploderar i munnen, en upplevelse

Bottles shared at Sovereign on their second night of Feb 5th and again on Zwanze Day 2016 (thanks Huhzubendah for the latter!). Cloudy red with a hint of head. Awesome rich and funky barnyard and berry fruit on the nose, taste follows with funk and brite berries, yeast, wood. Along with Fou’Foune, best lambic aroma I have experienced. Awesome.

Sample @ SBWF. Aroma is just amazing with notes of strawberries, funk, mushrooms and chewing gum! Wow! Taste is equally drinkable and complex. Not too fruity, but fruity enough. Unique even for a 3F beer. This is close to a perfect 5!
