3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 ounce bottle purchased at Monument Wine and Liquors. Aroma is yeasty, estery, banana like with plenty of burnt notes present. Caramel malts also make an appearance with an omnipresent ethanolic aroma. Virtually transparent amber body with a small-medium light tan head, Mild lacing. Mildly tart, lightly astringent start, which becomes roasted, caramelly, burnt, and heavily malty. Chewy, lightly hopped. Light ethanol late. Kind of tastes a little like a quad. The roasty, diacetyl, maltiness is a bit cloying as time goes on.

Poured as a taster at local shop. Pours a copper-orange color with off white head. Fruity esters and spice on the nose. Smooth, a touch of sweetness, spice, and malt on the palate. This is quite good.

It has a powerful, yeasty aroma. There may be a bit a plum as well. It pours amber with an orange hue. The head is off white with a few large bubbles and small ones in a medium bodied head. There is the taste of dried fruits and yeast.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
February 2014 bottle to a tulip glass. Pours a sienna/copper color with a fluffy off-white head. Aroma is a big bubble gum smell with some tropical fruit and a hint of peppery spice. Taste is caramel and some light malt with the peppery and spice notes and that distinct Belgian yeast taste. The alcohol is also apparent with a slight astringent taste in the middle. Soft, medium mouthfeel with moderate carbonation.

Some light florals from Belgian yeast mix with light black current and some citrus. Overall palate is medium range. Pours clear maroon with decent head and lacing. Finishes with light sweetness that sticks around nicely. Alcohol very understated. Tap at Churchkey.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample in a flight at Ale Yeah! Pours a dark caramel color, with a big, tan head and lots of lacing. Caramel aromas, with some ripe apples, cloves, and bread. Very sweet flavor, with just a hint of fruity tartness. Medium body, lightly acidic, crisp, and creamy. This is a nice, balanced, and fruity beer.

Spicy sweet and malty. Enjoyable but on the sweeter side with a sugary feel and sweet finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. Beautifully made clearly but just not my favorite style. Reminds me of a very good doppelbock with its banana and clove notes. Nice looking in the glass and impressive on the palate as you might expect from these guys. Worth a try.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sweet, honey like aroma with a hint of citrus, murky brown look, very spicy on the swallow, hint of bitter, that sweet smell doesn’t translate with the taste. I was looking for a little more sweet to match the bitter, hard spices. It’s a good beer but nothing I would go out of my way to get.
