dreddy (17) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 21, 2012
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, Valentines 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. Its a shame the nose hadnt held up, but the deliciousness more than makes up for that fact. Thanks again Michael!

Cherries and stable are very dominant when you smell it. It is a suprisingly drinkable and enjoyable beer ... very easy to drink, not too acidic, not difficult in the texture. Lives up to the hype.

ajnepple (6313) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 13, 2017
2015 bottle pour at Hops & Pie, 3 oz. Deep reddish and light hazy appearance with a pinkish white head. Aroma of barnyard funk, toasted oak, raspberries, sour cherries, earth and light grains. Similar flavor, sweet, tart, fruity, funky, earthy and mildly sour. Light to medium body with a soft feel and a light dry, woody finish. A little sweeter and less tart than I anticipated, but still excellent.

Vintage 13 partage avec les potes.Belle robe bien opaque. Dans mon verre, de la confiture de fruits bien sucre, bien crmeuse. Les premires armes me sont difficiles. Il faut dire que la bouteille est froide. Une importante cerise noire, macre dans un sirop me monte au nez, ainsi que dtranges armes de plastique te de vernis. Cest trs intense. Jai besoin de temps, elle aussi Laissons-nous le temps de nous apprivoiser. En nous rchauffant et en ngociant de bonne foi, nous parvenons petit petit une entente. Le cerise sestompe tranquillement, le plastique a disparu (sans doute simplement dissout dans cette acidit peu discrte) et la framboise prend son envol. du ppin de framboise, bien plus que de la chair. Cest capiteux et trs tannique, sans tre vineux. Lamertume des ppins de fruits apporte une astringence cohrente avec le PH trs bas de cette bire agressive. Longue en bouche, trs ptillante, acide et sucre, une 750ml se partage parfaitement entre 5 palais robustes.

xhophead (24) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - MAR 3, 2017
Tasted at the Sybarite Pig, Boca Raton, Fl. I won it in a silent auction, cracked it tonight and shared it with the bar. Wow, I've recently been exploring sours (recovering hop-head). This is the best I've had so far. Amazing fruit, but well balanced, sour, but not pucker inducing. Love it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
