Arriving in time to greet the new year is our deceptively efficacious Belgian strong ale. Golden-straw color, effervescent condition, and commingling flavors and aromas of curacao orange, coriander, yeasty fruit esters and phenols, a subtle malt base, and a warming, slightly hoppy finish. Served proudly in its own tulip-shaped glass, this perennial was the first Belgian-style beer produced in American craft-brewing history according to the beer Hunter, Michael Jackson. Don’t miss it!

Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - Betton - 22 oz bomber. Slightly hazy,medium golden pour, quickly fading light bubbly white head. Aroma has a hint of bubble gum and white grape juice, a hint of cake mix. Flavor is pleasant with some heavy doses of yeast, some cake mix sweetness, a touch of white grape juice. Mouthfeel is nice and thick and has a decent spritz to it,

Bomber. Belgian yeasty aroma with notes of coriander, clove and citrus. Pours cloudy golden colored with a thin off white head and no lacing, but has pretty good retention. Starts with Belgian yeast flavor and a bit of banana. Finishes slightly dry with the above spices coming through at the very end with sweet banana flavor sticking to the palate. Decent tripel.

Poured from the 750ml bottle into a Harpoon tulip glass The color is a bright yellow/gold with two fingers of foamy white head and some nice lacing left on the glass. The smell is sweet and has a great floral aroma that pops with a nice fruity nose. There is hints of apple peel, orange, and pear in the aroma with a touch of a Belgian character. The taste is a bit yeasty with a grainy flavor that pops with some sweet malty flavor. The juicy fruit flavor here is delicious as some apricot, and apple flavor mixes with a tease of white grape. A nice tangy bitterness comes in and melds with the sweetness and is like a double edged sword as the flavor splashes into a poke of bitterness at the end. The feel of this beer is medium bodied with a great drinkable feel that is a little dry but quite pleasing. It goes down easy and has some nice fruity esters that lingers only slightly after each sip.

Strykzone (5386) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAY 7, 2014
Bomber. A cloudy golden beer. Lots of carbonation moving up the glass. A nice almost white head. Fruity esters, yeast, and pale malts define this one. Alcohol brings warming. Some coriander. Decent stuff.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 16, 2014
Bottle:   Seems to have a pink peppercorn and spicy like start.   Not a mealy American example, which is great, but its not too floral.   Its a thick somewhat sweet fruitiness, with some spices and that pink peppercorn.   Yeasty and estery start to finish.   Its interesting, and a bit different from a lot of others.   Warming, but not alcoholic.   Peppery finish.   Very interesting and unexpected.

Pours a hazy orange with a mild aroma. Pretty good taste but nothing special. Still very drinkable.
