Airdale Bombshell, is a crisp and refreshing Belgian golden ale, made from all Belgian ingredients. Pilsner malts, candi sugars, and an aromatic golden ale yeast were combined to give us a pale blonde ale with aromas of cloves and bubblegum, and a distinctive Belgian "funk"! At 8.3% alcohol, this beer packs a punch while remaining light and refreshing; perfect for the summer months. Available during the months of July thru September, Bombshell is great paired with many mainstay summer foods!

A: The pour is a nice golden color with perhaps some hints of orange and a nice big white head. S: Lots of sweet, light fruits to the nose. I get some sweet apples, pears, and some bananas. A nice bready, yeastiness to it as well, and some mild spice esters. T: The flavor is quite sweet, mostly from the fruit character. Good sweet pears and apples pair nicely with the spice esters from the yeast. The maltiness is moderate and slightly bready with just a touch of bitterness. A bit of a sweet citrus and a fair amount of tropical fruits start to come through as the beer warms up. M: The body is medium and the carbonation is fairly high. D: This was one of the surprising beers of the day. I really enjoyed it and found it very enjoyable and easy to drink.

JohnnyJ (5419) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 17, 2010
Apparently whoever entered this was too drunk to put in the "h" in "shell". Draft. Hazy golden yellow, creamy white head. Candy sugar, lots of banana, belgian yeast. Not much in the way of spice, maybe a slight bit of clove. Basically a strong tripel, not my thing.
