Binny's Orland

Batch #1
June 2007

Ommegeddon. I've been witing for this beer to be bottled for a long while. Pours a straw golden with a slight haziness to it. A two finger white head formed on the pour that faded rather quickly to a swirling with thick edges. Leaves moderate lacing as the head recedes and after each drink. Good looking brew.

There is some of that brett funkiness in there. The first thing that hits me is a field of wildflowers. Nice dose of wet hay with a faint hint of bubblegum. Mild sweetness as if from candi sugar. Really welcoming smelling brew but not as funky as expected.

Flavor is right in line with the aroma. All the flavors transfer from one to the next seamlessly. Pale malts fall to the wayside quickly in favor of that bubblegum sweetness mid-palate. The funkiness comes around toward the finish but is still mild as in the aroma. The barnyard comes forth more than the smell. The hay is there but it's intermingled with horse blanket and dampness. Good flavor.

Great mouthfeel just like all Ommegang's offerings. Light and frothy with good carbonation. This ale finishes so dry it makes your tongue feel like it's drying up giving it the feel of a strong hop tingle.

The dryness makes you actually need another sip immediately after the last. Good flavor and light body make this an easy sipper.

Another homerun from Ommegang. I have a few in the cellar to sample in 6 months and later. This brewery has yet to let me down and they're always stocked in my fridge.

Old Review
750 ml bottle labeled Batch #2, March 2008. Served in a tulip.

A: Pours a hazy, cloudy, pale yellow/orange color. Has some real active carbonation, that creates some nice bubble trails throughout the glass. Poured a nice, creamy white head that has some really good retention and creates a sheeting effect in lacing.

S: Smells of big time funky yeast, sour apple, banana (shocker), and the is absolute presence of hops.

T: Taste is of funky yeast first and foremost. This is followed by sour fruit (apple, pear, orange, lemon and apricot can all be found). Banana flavors are not as pronounced. Still with all this yeast and fruit flavor, there is still a touch of hops bite on the back end. Very nice balance.

M: Medium bodied brew that is creamy with some decent carbonation. No presence of the 8% ABV. Goes down pretty easy, only leaving slight notes of hops and fruit in the aftertaste.

D: This brew is pretty nice. I wish I had someone to share this with but it won't be hard to polish off the 750. Tasty and easy to drink. Very nice.

Supremely bright golden hay color with a largely stacked amount of white starchy foam grows up quickly from the pour. Keeps a half inch always present and sits quite thick. Lacing is splotched about in some big blotchy spots and thicker, straggly strings.

Aroma is dryish with a mild tone of lemon grass and chalky basement dirt. Comes across as clean and delighfully so with a very nice dry, spicy-like tone and carries an aspect of a well-crafted nature. Earthy and herbal, ligth and airy with a fine toned little funkyness of heather, leather, lemon must, and white pepper.

Taste is much like the aroma with a fair amount of complexity to the funky brett flavors that really keep a well toned averageness that handles well across the palate. Spices, herbs, funky must, earthlen lemony under current, metalic hints, and is sharply tongued and grabbing right from the get go. Kinda zingy with a well developed dryness over the top that grows as it fades and leaves some spices and peppery funk within the lemony zest and must.

Feel is quite zippy and quickly toned with the construction of heavy carbonation in the front and then tenders up the palate allowing the fun funk and stuff to dry off as it fades into the finish which is fairly complexing and fun to behold.

A pretty solid brew with just the right amount of funk for me that made the bottle a full enjoyment through. Although, still much more of sipper then something I could swig alot of easily. And there's nothing wrong with that when it comes to this kind of Brett induced beer.

Color is golden, a bit brighter than I would have figured. Almost looks like a cloudy Pilsner (ducks and runs for cover). Smell is "clean", if that makes any sense. Slight wheat smell, which is expected. Maybe a faint citrus/lemon smell. Taste is a bit more bold than the smell leads you to believe. Still slightly undertoned though, which I think is good. The Brett comes out as lemon and a slight grass taste. Notable hop bitterness in there too, just for good measure I suppose. Feel is quite dry and crisp.

Overall, I have to say that this one is better with 6mo+ of age on it. As the label says it lets the Brett come out a bit more. I agree. Hold this one for a decent period, maybe 6-12 months. I have a few more to try after a little more time.

Batch #1, June 2007

A: Looks different than I imagined it would. Sort of a hazy golden rod with evident sediment. Much more “simple” than I was expecting, but I like simple looking beers. Head is a sudsy, buttercream color.

S: Smells a lot like a triple and saison. Some wet blanket, dry oyster crackers, faint lemon juice, coriander and floral essences.

T: Begins like a very dry saison. Any and all of the sweet aspects have been taken advantage of by the rampant brett. Secondary flavors include jasmine and honeysuckle, but again on the dry end. Quite bitter really, almost grating and prodding the back and sides of the tongue. Peach yogurt is prevalent long after the swallow, but there is only the slightest aspect of sweetness to it…but its almost honeyish. Bitter lemon rind, limestone mineralistic qualities and an alcohol streak round it out.

M: Medium body, touch of carbo sting.

D: Fairly complex beer going on here. I’ll try it again in another six months to see if its gotten any drier. Although I would prefer a bit more sweetness just to balance it out.

Batch #1, June 2007. 8% abv

A - Light yellow straw colored body with an ever so slight haze to it. Big, bright white head made up of varying sized bubbles.

S - As soon as I poured it, I could smell the brett. Man do I love brett. Big lemon tartness. It's also got some farmhouse funk going on with earthy tones and a touch of horseblanket.

T - Spritzy lemon to start. Brett comes in with that peach yogurt flavor that someone I know (wst) talks about with such fondness. Funky, earth flavors with horseblanket and barnyard both playing parts. Finish brings a bitter hop wash.

M - Light and dry with a bit of a crispness to it.

D - Nice beer. I will have to get another to drink it at 6 months, which should be the maximum enjoyment of Brett funkiness according to the bottle.

Solid brew. Pours golden yellow, and forms a NICE foam head that hangs around the entire drink. Smell is the perfect sour/hops. Taste is much of the same. Sour, but real smooth. Very drinkable
