Good Omen by Reformation Brewery is judged as a Specialty Wood-Aged Beer (BJCP Style 33B).

This is a Bière Brut, a style originating in Belgium and made in the style of champagne. Gin botanical aromas joined by mild berry and white grape season a light, fresh baked French bread scent with traces of wood, gin, alcohol and pepper. It pours pale gold with a light haze and kicks up a 2” off-white foam cap with good persistence. It starts semi-sweet offering berries, light fruit, light grapes, a touch of pepper and gin botanicals that ease into a crisp, slightly drier finish. The beer is light-bodied and effervescent with a trace of tartness and a light oaky astringent note on the finish to enhance the perception of dryness. The alcohol is mildly warming and not hot or harsh. This elegant beer is a perfect companion for special occasions or occasional bouts of decadence.
