Pours a cloudy golden orange with a nice white head. The aroma is like sweet orange peel with a piney tinge. The flavor starts off bitter followed by sweet clementine.

Bomber poured a clear gold with a lasting creamy off white head. Aromas of bread, yeast, citrus, spice and a hint of pine. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of straw, citrus, yeast and spice with a smooth dry bitter lingering spiced finish.

Don't let the name fool you. There are no cowbells. Very bitter with lots of floaters ahem I mean sediment. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(22oz bomber) cloudy orange, long lasting creamy white head. Nose of chlorine, honey, very floral, spicy, earth, celery, bits of Juicy citrus, cream, endless complexity. Taste has lots of spices, Belgian yeast profile is exceptionally prominent, medium bitterness like a grapefruit peel. Cinnamon In the finish, very unique beer for the style.

Gvaughn (22) - Texas, USA - APR 18, 2014
Nice orangey golden hue, low clarity, with beautifipul white foamy head. Not a lot of aroma other than mild Belgian notes. Flavor comes through nicely as it warms. Comes across as an average beer without any outstanding features.

ben4321 (4100) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 2, 2014
Location: 22 oz bottle from Central Market, 4/2/14

Aroma: The nose is Belgian yeast and spice, with some pine and citrus notes as well
Appearance: Pours a murky gold-orange color with a thick, frothy, white head and mid-heavy lace
Flavor: The taste is yeast and spice, some alcohol, not much citrus or hop juice noticeable
Palate: The body is medium-full, creamy and soft feel, a little heat, and a slightly off finish
Overall Impression: This one was only okay for me. The hops just don’t come through enough for the style, and there’s something slightly off on the finish as well.

Bottle. The look is clear, orange in color, and has an ok off white head. The smell is yeast, really fruity, alcohol, and cleaner. The taste is hops, fruits, alcohol, cleaner.

5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Bottle:   Dark dirty straw, moderate sudsy off-white head, little lacing.   Smells musty, and of wet socks, stale hops, and a touch of wet cardboard.   Not all that appealing on the nose.   Very similar on the tongue, musty citrus peel, wet sock, a touch wet cardboard.   Tastes very stale.   I have had the bottle for four months, so I wouldn’t think it would turn this quick.   Guessing the 20 percentile has something to do with it.   Warming on the tongue.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Finishes... well, like having soggy wet socks on a 2 hour car ride home.   Not pleasant.
