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 beer’s 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 it’s delicious.

50belair (3701) - 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.

SrSilliGose (3324) - 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.

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.

Oakes (19426) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 13, 2017
Tart, bretty, strong, all kinds of barrel coming through, burly, delicious, and again that brett blows through right at the finish.

LilBeerDoctor (4236) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 19, 2008
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 couldn’t tell this was a 9.4% abv. A good brew.

3.6
SuIIy (1984) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - OCT 17, 2009
Sample at NotF. Pours a light cloudy yellow color with a foamy white head. Nose is lightly fruity with clove and banana esters. Palate is lightly fizzy and clean. Flavors of toasty malt notes and yeast with a light hint of clove.

AirForceHops (8037) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 15, 2012
Draft at the brew pub. 5 oz taster. Nose is funky oak and Brettanomyces, good amount of funk. Taste is mostly the same with a bit of musty hay. Mouthfeel has a mild Puckering affect. Medium in body with a slightly drying texture. Decent. Well worth a try if you enjoy Brett.

3.6
BroSpud (2283) - , Massachusetts, USA - DEC 25, 2016
Bomber. Pours a reddish golden with a fair amount of carbonation. Tart like cider with similar flavor notes but much tastier in my opinion. Great story on the brewing process. Pretty decent sour which seemed to get better as we drank more.

3.6
tapefuzz (928) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 25, 2017
On tap at brewery. Pours gold with a small off-white head. Aroma is oak, apple, some yeast, and light funk. Taste is tart apple, spice, oak, vanilla, and some raisin. Dry. Light-medium body. Spritzy, medium carbonation. Slick-ish.

3.5
PilsnerPeter (3049) - Flushing, New York, USA - OCT 21, 2009
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. There’s an herbal note on the back. This is quite interesting, but I can’t say I liked it through and through. (Perhaps it’s because I’m sensitive to the diacetyl of the California Chardonnays).
