HOMMAGE is a distinctive ale that we see as a tribute to Oak Aged Trappist Style Brews of yore. HOMMAGE is well hopped and aged for one year in Red Wine Barrels with great respect(and Brettanomyces).

Leighton (12642) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2010
Bottle at the Funky 6. Pours cloudy gold with a slight, off-white head. Lightly funky aroma, musty, with some toasty malts. Fairly sweet flavor with some flowery sweetness, Belgian sugars, funky yeast. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. Finishes with hints of alcohol, sugary malts, light wood and lingering funk. Interesting and pretty good.

In short: A weird mess with no style
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed fresh soon after the beer release. Post- BCTC 2010 tasting
The look: Partly cloudy golden body topped by a very small off-white head
In long: Nose is sweet and a perfumy component that I described as scented wood. Taste is a mess of flavors thrown together. Grapes, bubblegum, residual sugar, garden flowers, stuff. I read here that it is aged for one year in red wine barrels (didnít notice that) and uses brett (didnít notice that either). With brett and all maybe the beer can develop into something, but fresh this beer was a mess. Iím surprised to see not-so-negative comments here since I clearly remember this beer being greeted by a collective ďWhat The Fuck?Ē around the table. Weird. I donít know what to say. I havenít known what to say since the armed man with the cue cards has stopped following me.

Another sick growler courtesy of Jonathan sampled at the LCBS 10. Hazy straw color with a small white head. Aromas of barn, hay, and brett. Sour flavors of Belgian candies and bourbon. Interesting combo, but good....

Gold pour, light head. Aroma of honey, perfume, yeast, light hops, wood...unique stuff. Flavor is funky, fruity, perfume, floral...odd, but pretty good. Thanks JW.

j12601 (7248) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - SEP 1, 2010
Had this at BCTC after the fest, back at the campsite. Pours a hazy yellow gold with a thin white head. Fuzzy musk and hay, malt and toast. Just boring. Musky plastic. Forgettable. Musk and tart paper on the finish. Drinkable, but bland.

swoopjones (6537) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 13, 2010
BCTC 2010, 2010 version. almost seemed too new. like flavors had not blended together yet, deeper orange pour, medium spritz/carbonation. agressive on the tongue. tough beer to describe, cant really figure this one out, towards the end of a long day in Cooperstown

beastiefan2k (2645) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - AUG 7, 2010
22oz bottle shared at BCTC, happy I got to try this. Aroma is an interesting mix of oily-sugary fruit and flowers. Flavor is sweet but not too sweet with carbonated flowers. Short aftertaste, which is good cause this is a weird beer and I have no idea what the heck is going on.

egajdzis (5459) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 4, 2010
Hazy golden color with a small, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of vanilla, toasted malts, citrus fruits, some red wine and light alcohol. Taste of vanilla, toast, some honey, citrus fruits, red wine, and a dry finish.
