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 beers 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 its delicious.

Pour deep clear gold into a tulip. Bright white head with excellent retention recedes leaving trailing sheets. Grape and oak aromas. Soft with sweet dry oak and chardonnay upfront turning to earth, tart brett and marshmallows in the lasting finish. Very close to a white wine flavor with a bit of funk and bitterness in the finish. Based on the reviews, it looks like this one benefited from some time in a bottle.

Draft at EBF. Pours a light golen body with a a creamy head. Aroma is sweet malt, citrus, banana, and belgian yeast. Flavor is that with little etoh expression.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 22, 2010
Tap at Cambridge Brewing. Pours in a wine glass- hazy almost dull yellow/orange with a thinning head- dissipates to nothing. Aroma is very fruity and funky- tons of brett, pedio and lacto- fruity, tropical notes, pineapple, leather and light apple hints with barnyard light horse manure, and good clean white wine and woody tones. Flavor is earthy, fruity more pineapple, and funky white wine, spicy, earthy, light crackery malts, cobwebs, musty, leather, earth and funk with some spice. Mostly clean and not over the top funked out- just really well balanced at this point- I feel like this beer wasnt even as close to the funk level it is now when I first had this over a year ago.

Reddish orange. No head aroma is faint but I get a little plastic. Grapes, nuts, lemon? Fig and peaches. Fleeting finish with some caramel.

Extreme Beer Fest 2/15/08: A robust golden/blonde ale, more like a tripel. Taste of Belgian yeast, banana, wheat, apple, sweetness. Very light, you couldnt tell this was a 9.4% abv. A good brew.

50belair (3458) - Florida, USA - JUL 20, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Cloudy amber pour with a white head. Light citrus aromas. Moldy sour peach and nectarine notes with malty undercurrents. Tangy, but not overly tart. Interesting. This batch has an ABV of 7.8%. Average body and mouthfeel.

Reynolds314 (3344) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Aroma is overripe fruits, some cheesy funk and candy apple. Taste is up front very fruity but finish is very sweet and sticky and hard to drink.

SrSilliGose (3328) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - JAN 27, 2013
Tap at CBC. Aroma of big fruity apricot and green grapes. Reminiscent of barrel aged upright beers. Sweaty over ripened pear Brett. Tasty. Fun to drink. Menu says 7.8% abv.

puzzl (3259) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 25, 2009
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 didnt do the trick (gimme a break with that, btw. Waste of time. If thats what you feel you need to do to create a superior beer experience then you are doing it all wrong. Im all for experimentation in brewing, but this pseudo-science BS should be saved for Tom Cruise and the church of Scientology).

Sampled at Night of the Funk 2009: Slightly hazy golden with a thick dense white head. Tannic buttery Chardonnay aroma- mild odd phenols are there as well giving off a plasticy note over a green raisin fruity undertone. Creamy body- warming. Some mild vanilla flavor mesh with a buttery white wine vinousness and sweet oak. Theres an herbal note on the back. This is quite interesting, but I cant say I liked it through and through. (Perhaps its because Im sensitive to the diacetyl of the California Chardonnays).
