3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Bine & Vine. Pours clear copper with a foamy off-white head. Smell is clean and rather floral. Caramel backbone. Full bodied. Flavor is yeast/spice, banana ester, caramel, kandi, and some medium dark fruit. This is a very clean and pleasing drink. Heat may be present, but itís not getting in the way of anything. Sort of like adding to the yeast/spice. The finish is nearly dry. This stuff is way too drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark amber color with a finger of off-white head. Bread and toasted malt aromas along with lots of dark fruit and banana. A nice raisin sweetness and some hints of spice. The flavor has a lot of toffee, bread, and caramel to go with the banana and raisin. The spice notes on the palate are a bit more pronounced than on the nose, mostly nutmeg and clove. Nice full body on this.

Tap at the brewery tasting room. Pours a low haze deep orange with weak foam. Nose is heavy DMS/vegetal, something like Chinese orange chicken with broccoli, perhaps more beefy like Chinese take out orange beef. Taste is cloying to the max. Undrinkable. Way too much sugar.

Bottle; poured a dark caramel color with a smallish sized head. Aroma of candy sugar, yeast, and alcohol. Flavor was a bit mild in flavor, but fit the profile. Alcohol was really present, especially in the finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
$7.99 bomber purchased a couple months ago at Olive Tree Market in OB for $7.99.Clear light to medium auburn with a 1/2 finger creamy beige head, low retention. Big sweet brown sugar and spicy clove and ripe banana presence right up front, light drying graham cracker on the backend. Flavor follows suit, but does a good job of not doing this the American way and having way way too much (perceived) sweetness. Pretty raisiny and fruity, though Iím not really getting much sweetness. Big full body with low prickly carbonation. One of the better American made quads Iíve had in recent memory.
