Beers with Peps: Brew Review- Omnipollo Fatamorgana


Hey drinkers and welcome back to day bottle three of Omnipollo week. This time we turn our attention to Fatamorgana. First thing to note with this bottle is the eye catching artwork, of a setting sun. With the bottle being brown, the crazy bright pink and yellow really help for this to standout on a shelf. The other bonus to this beer is that it is a bigger bottle. So prefect for sharing. Must be noted for this review I did not share (whoops).

Details

Name: Fatamorgana
Style: Wheat/Oat IIPA
Brewery: Omnipollo (Website)
Country: Sweden but brewed by Pub Dog Brewing USA
Price: £6.50 22 fl oz bottle
ABV: 8%

Commercial Fluff:

"Drawing inspiration from the fidelity of a saison — rustic, alluringly cloudy and crisp — this imperial IPA was brewed using oats and wheat. Dry-hopped twice and completely untouched post fermentation to preserve aroma and flavor."---Henok (brewer)



Own Opinion

Sight: As it pours from the bottle you can't miss the cloudy yellow coloured liquid. The cloudiness of the brew is the effect of the oats and wheat. It also settled with a good lively head. As the picture shows it looks quite striking with the light shining on it. 
Aroma: The aroma is very gentle. Tropical fruits are main attraction with a subtle grapefruit and peach aroma, along with the tiniest hint of straw. It smells very refreshing for an 8% beer.
Taste: A smooth gentle beer. There is a lemon and peach freshness to it, but it finishes with almost a mango light bitterness. A very well rounded and intriguing beer.
Would I buy it again? Yes. It was so refreshing, this beer would suit me perfectly on a hot summer day. The aromas, flavours and finish are gentle enough to make you want more. Whilst it's 8% kick lets you know you've been drinking. Properly my favourite Omnipollo beer so far, just pushing past the Neb.

So have you tried this beer? What are your thoughts on it.
