Bottle. 25.4 oz. Split with James. Pours a hazy lemonade with bits of sediment throughout and a nice solid white head. Aroma of lemon, slight bubble gum and orange peel. spice, lavender, chamomile, and fresh cut wheat. Medium to light bodied with a moderately spicy palate. Finishes cleanly, with a nice crisp carbonated bite. Very good American style Wit.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber. Hazy golden-ish with small head. Aroma is yeasty, earthy hops, light spice, pretty simple despite the description. Taste is wit sweet, American style, with noticeable yeast and medium hops. An average American (I mean Belgian?) wit that tries admirably but falls short overall, like most of the beers of this nationality in this style, if you catch my drift.

22 ounce bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA, on 5/2/10. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a medium head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of clove, other spices, citrus, yeast and soap. The taste is citrus, bread and faint spices and caramel. Medium bodied. Decent.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft @ Logan "brewpub" - vibrant yellow with faint haze and razor thin white head; sharp minerally lemons, stale grain, lemon juice and dry hay; drinks quite raw and lemony as well; fruit trumps any spices and overall reminds me of watered down lemon juice; yup

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Canned vegetables and anise aroma. Hazy yellow, thin white head. Orange peel, coriander, and lemon flavor, mild DMS. Medium bodied. Smells pretty bad, but the DMS is not as noticeable on the palate. Not as light as most witbiers I’ve had. Very flavorful, slightly infected.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: Cloudy dull straw yellow with a decent head, retention, and lacing.
Smell: Coriander, wheat, yeast, orange peel, a firm touch of clove and smidgen of ginger. Its on the spicier side rather than the citrus side of the wit bier scale.
Taste: Wheat and orange peel up front with yeast, clove, and ginger following strongly.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Not terrible but definitely the category that could use the most improvement as it comes off a bit too thin for my liking.
Drinkability: Light bodied with a good amount of carbonation make this one a breeze to down. Refreshingly thirst quenching.
This is a fine American play on a Belgian Wit.
Serving type: bottle

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bomber. Pours hazy gold, very thin white head. Kind of surprising that the head is so tiny, since it appears to be a very yeasty beer (by the sediments at the bottle of the bottle & the aroma). Aroma is yeasty, skunky (hops), and fruity. This beer is terribly non-carbonated, to a point of being offensive. Pretty weak yeasty/malty flavor. Not a drain pour, but I wouldn’t seek this out again. I can’t remember how much I paid for this bottle, but whatever the price, it was too much.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2012 I shake my head and wonder If I am getting myself into something bad. much like any movie that utilizes the title as a tag line in a film, the use of "Wicked Good" portents disaster and strangeness. Nose of hops yeast and a bit of funk. I will not call it quenching. I will not call it zesty. I will call it an end of run bottle that should not have been shipped. Solid murky pour with some serious chunks floating about. Potentially a bad bottle but the fella said they just got it on the shelves. Hmmmm. Re-rate 1/1/11. Draft growler from half time provided by the host of the New years extravaganza. Confirmed, the Bomber was well past the prime since it was a summer seasonal. Lemonhead gumdrop body. In other words, tangy but sweet about the edges. Light bodied with a thin crisp yeasty head. Sharp decided finish. A great one to start the night with. Up from a 2.8. (5,2,6,3,12).
