DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 11, 2016
Draft into a tulip. Served goddamn ice cold such that I can’t smell or taste it. 3.25 A: Well hazed yellow brown color. Came with a short frothy head. 3.75 S: Pleasantly lactic tanginess. Grassy hay, apple orchard, dry-rot wood. Some barnyard funk with a neutral wheat. 3.75 T: Similar to nose, but less acidic. Slight astringent finish. 3.25 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Feels somewhat dead on the tongue. 3.5 D: It’s decent, but overrated based on the reviews. ★ 491 characters DavoleBomb, Apr 05, 2015

Bottle. Hazy gold with a thin white head. The aroma is floral and a hint of barnyard. The flavor includes some citrus and spices as well. It finishes a little on the bitter side.

Bottle shared, thanks Juan! Lovely flamed pear tart character, some earthy and floral notes very smooth and dry on the finish. Excellent stuff, would love to degustate this one again.

It pours light golden with a slight orange tinge to the color. It has a large white head. It has a high fruit aroma with some sour and clove like elements to it. It has a combination of a high fruit flavor with a sour kick. The hop flavors are spicy which provides a good balance between the fruit and sour flavors. It feels moderate, but on the low side. It has a dry finish with a high amount of carbonation.

Fantastic, hoppy, spritzy farmhouse. A hint of barn, but more fresh and effervescent. Excellent, body and well carbed. Excellent.

Bottle sampled as part of the beer pairing at Luksus on November 27th, 2015 with Linh. Pours a hazy golden body with thick white head. Nose is sour citrus, tart lemons, yeast and farm funk. Mouthfeel is medium and spot on with notes of funky barnyard, brett, sour lemons, yeast, some belgian character and soft grains on the palate in the finish.
