COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Without grappling over somantics, the origin of this heavenly brew comes from the harmonizing minds at Owen & Engine and Pipeworks. Brewed with amchoor, coconut, jaggery sugar, and a gentle hopping of Hallerteau Blanc, this light, bright, Belgian inspired ale has a subtle vinous character that comes close to divine. With Soma, we attempt to transcend the limits of the ordinary experience, and offer up to you an otherworldly ale.

Bottle. Poured hazy golden color with an average white frothy head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy citrus and floral hop and fruit aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy complex sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable brew.

22 oz bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have some citrus fruit, vanilla, coconut, white grapes, grass, pale malts, some sweetness, very light bitterness at the finish, decent, not something I would necessarily seek out.

DrSilverworm (8142) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 21, 2015
22oz bottle, big thanks to tmoney99 for sharing. Hazy golden orange color. Thin off-white head, kind of bubbly. Loose bits of lace. Very interesting pear, spice, touch of coconut. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Light slick, light drying in the finish. Bit of vanilla in the aftertaste. Moderate sweet taste, light to moderate bitter. Solid, interesting saison-like belgian golden strong. Hides alcohol pretty well.

BBB63 (6388) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JAN 15, 2015
Bottlle: Clean golden orangy hue with a good head and lace. First thing the strikes me is the simple Belgian yeast tones and the white grape notes of the Hallerteau Blanc hops. Light vanilla creme, palm, and faint coconut also present. Honestly this is WAY more subdued than I expected, perhaps too much so. The strength of a Tripel without the depth

Bomber. Pours a golden orange with a white head and aroma of wine, grapes, and spices. Taste is complex, notes of spices, coconut, wine, hops, and yeast with a wineous finish.

Back at home with Z, an off hazy pour that is golden light yellow with no head. Nose is spicy, yeasty with some floral notes. Taste is sweet, floral, with a sticky heaviness. Hard to pin down the above notes. Finish is dry and ends on some tanin notes. Quaff Score 7 / 10

Lightly hazy gold beer, tidy white head. Palate is smooth and semi dry. Fine carbonation. Smooth malts. Trace of brandyish alcohol. slightly warming. Mellow citrus and just a whisper of coconut sweetness. Light dry finish. Too strong and not enough coconut. So why is it so damn drinkable?
