COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer represents a new venture into the world of beer and mystical experience. Contemporary theories of sound therapy are incorporated into a process which aligns this Belgian-style golden ale to the specific frequency that is expressed in meditation circles by the mantra "OM.” While resting in French oak chardonnay barrels for six months, the barrels and their contents were vibrated using therapeutic tuning forks and Tibetan chanting bowls at a frequency of 136.10 Hz @ 432.10 Hz. Studies have shown that vibration affects the crystalline structure of liquids and that water has the ability to 'memorize' frequency information and hold sound at nearly five times the magnitude of air. From Plato to Pythagoras to Kepler scholars have experimented with ways in which we define the sound of the universe and how it is relative to our own existence. Our process created an optimal environment, also, for the naturally residing microflora in the oak, bringing into the beer subtle expressions of Brettanomyces which complement the beer’s dry but malty palate with flavors and aromas of pineapple and peach fruit. OM expresses a truly harmonious balance of honeyed malt and hop, yeast and flora, and oak character, with a final stated goal of assisting humanity in its quest towards inner bliss, equanimity, and world harmony. Oh, and it’s delicious.

Tap at Night of the Funk. Pours a pale gold. Aroma has notes of paprika, seaweed, clove and acetone, with a gentle tartness. Soup up front in the mouth with an ugly, buttery, oily finish. Looks like 136.10 Hz didn’t do the trick (gimme a break with that, btw. Waste of time. If that’s what you feel you need to do to create a superior beer experience then you are doing it all wrong. I’m all for experimentation in brewing, but this pseudo-science BS should be saved for Tom Cruise and the church of Scientology).

Hazy yellow body with no head whatsoever. Has a lot of funk coming off of it. It almost tastes like a cookies and cream milk shake. That is not a typo. Not really in a food way either. It just sits and sits on my tounge.

On tap at the Night of the Funk 2012. Old socks, manure, rotten grass, and acetaldehyde lead to hints of really poorly made mead. The only beer at the fest I couldn’t choke down.
