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 (15381) - 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.

Bottle at RBWG ’15 Grand Tasting @ Coppertail, thanks to whomever shared this one, 21/02/15. Hazed orange amber with a moderate off white covering. Nose is funky, yeast esters, pissy citrics, tangy citric rinds, musty. Taste comprises wood must, funk, light brett, tangy red berry licks, apple core, straw, light floral notes. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Decent.

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.

DrSilverworm (9107) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 25, 2015
Tasted during RBWG15 Grand Tasting. 750ml bottle. Last pour from the bottle. Very dreggy. Totally hazy, chalky chunky yeasty aroma. Thin off-white head. Interesting flavor. Some chocolate, mint, seeing the bandaid. Hazelnut. Moderate sweet taste, light sour. Despite the dregs - interesting stuff.

MartinT (8736) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 18, 2011
My Bottom Line:
Biscuity honeyed malts are efficiently dried out by pepper-y brettanomyces, as passionfruit and peach esters develop even more complexity for this elegant Wild Ale .

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A generous head of foam tops the misty golden amber.
-The pillowy effervescence is perfect for the low residual sugar level.
-Fruitiness is also citrusy throughout.
-I would not have said the barrel used to have red wine. The wild yeast seems to have done a great clean-up job.
-This is as complex as it is drinkable. I hope they make it more often!

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 (7013) - 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

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 (didn’t notice that) and uses brett (didn’t notice that either). With brett and all maybe the beer can develop into something, but fresh this beer was a mess. I’m surprised to see not-so-negative comments here since I clearly remember this beer being greeted by a collective “What The Fuck?” around the table. Weird. I don’t know what to say. I haven’t known what to say since the armed man with the cue cards has stopped following me.
