pours a deep, golden orange with fluffy white head. aroma is sweet candied citrus fruits, yeast, and citrus hops. taste starts with more candied fruit - like orange or apricot jam - along with spice, biscuit, and some light caramel notes. citrusy hops start to show up in the finish, with just a bit of tartness. syrupy and resinous. very enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear amber, white head, average retention.
Aroma: sweet citrus, grape peel, rotten orange.
Taste: bitter and sweet
Flavour: bergamot, caramel, toffee, sweet fat cheese, sweet caramel and malty notes.
Long zesty-sweet finish with prominent alcohol.
Overall impression: Grog with lemon.
It seems more like imperial IPA then like belgian-style beer. Not sure what is "belgian" here.
Good and not an easy drink.

Pours a clear copper with a thick off white foam. Very light carbonation with plenty of lacing. Semisweet citrus aroma with some notes of toffee and candy corn. Light syrupy texture. Started fairly smooth with a sweet malty taste. Finished with a touch of bitter citrus peel and some warmth. Reminds me of Crunkle Sam. Enjoyable.

Bottle. Pours a hazed amber apricot with a medium sized white head. Fruit on the nose, a little bit of sweetness , citrus hops. Medium body warm and boozy, almost a bit of grapefruit and even a hint of the city with a lot of warming alcohol and sticky malt behind. Finishes with a slow grapefruit bitterness and more alcohol.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Brewtopia. Opaque golden orange with white head and lotsa lace. Tangerine orange pineapple mango floral aroma. Sweet tangerine mango with some breadiness and orange citrus finish with some spicy bitterness. Medium full creamy wheaty (?) body. Nice soft carbo. Wicked fucking delicious. Might even be better without the orange peel. Not sure that’s necessary.

Bomber shared by Chalumeaux. Thanks, TJ! Pours golden brown with a big off white head. Aroma is caramel, malt, citrus. Flavor is caramel, banana, clove. Grapefruit and orange citrus in the finish. I usually don’t care for hoppy Belgians, but this is decent.
