This beer, once poured into a glass, is a hazy golden/amber color with a large white head, and the aroma is amazing and reminds your nose of floral hops and sour fruit. The taste is mildly sour, a touch bitter, and mildly sweet, but this is very, very nice; furthermore, the palate combines a medium body, slick texture, lively carbonation, and a long finish.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours gold with a white head. Taste fruity, sweet, Belgian yeast. I thought this was good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I think I’ve got a couple 4 Hands beers rated higher than this, but this is the beer from them I’d buy the most if it was year round and line priced. It pours clear golden yellow with a white head. The aroma has dry stone fruit, tropical fruit, light earthiness, minor spice and a touch of funky Belgian bugs. It has a body that is light, clean and refreshing. There is some carbonation, but its quite restrained. The flavor starts with dry crackery malt, peppery spice, spicy/earthy hops, minor grapefruit and earthy buggy yeastiness. The finish has some sulfur, grass and spice. Excellent table/session/Belgian ale. Hope this is around for a while or makes it to the year round line up.

Bomber to snifter (shared by phaleslu). Looks good for e style; a slightly cloudy golden orange with fluffy white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells solid; fruity, spicy, yeasty, and wheaty. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

Aroma is very perfumery, candied citrus, orange. Clear yellow with a pillowy head and decent lacing. Tastes very Belgian pale ale. Citrus hops intertwine well with a nice musty yeast taste.
