Ommegang Biere de Mars
« on: July 30, 2012, 04:07:20 PM »
So after my horrible Saison Dupont experience (see my other post), I had to dip into something else in my cellar to try to make up for it. I cracked into my bottle of Ommegang Biere de Mars (Batch #2 - October 2008), and it was really, really good. The Brett character was just phenomenal. Big Orval-like cherry pie with a touch of funk. I want to go back and buy them out, but I am a little concerned about long-term storage. I literally untwisted the cage twice and the cork exploded out and bounced off the ceiling. Still, I think beer that good is worth the risk to me...

I've had it too and found that the cork barely stayed in the bottle once I removed the cage.  And it was damn friggin' good :D
