Not Recommedned especially for 17.99 per bomber.

a soft vanilla flavor to begin. very soft. some citrus notes as well. maybe more of a limeyness than a lemon. softer flavors too. pear and a little oak? there’s something else towards the finish, a lackluster wateryness that is unappealing. a little heat and plenty of gas in the finish. virtually no hop bitterness on the palate. meh, i find myself back and forth between enjoying some of the flavors and wanting more.

ROGUE (2127) - Newark, Delaware, USA - AUG 28, 2013
750ml bottle. Pours a light golden color with a one finger head that disapates into a ring of light lacing. Aroma is light with, hops, berries and hints of honey. Taste follows the nose, lots of pale malts with a very white wine and honey sweetness. White grapes, honey and a sort of fruity tartness towards the back end. Flavor rises as the beer warms. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation that is smooth and creamy.

jjgmd (1512) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Pours a rusty orange color with a small white head. Nose is fruity and sweet, with definite upfront currants. Taste is too sweet and overwhelmingly over taken by the currants. Finish is sweet, and fruity. Not a big fan of fruit beers, but this is over the top, Quaff Score 5 / 10

zgaier (1463) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Pours a cloudy orange with a beige head and aroma of fruity currants, and yeast. Taste is sweet, lots of currants, fruity notes, ethers, bread, and spices with a yeasty, fruity finish. Wasn’t big on the taste of this brew

what does pearl jam have to do with beer? thought they disappeared a decade ago, then again- i don’t listen to shit music .. . .
pours out a slightly dark gold .. . very light foam .. . light berry and chewed hay- with a horrid rotting cork backbone .. wow! this is terrible!!!!! .. . a toch fry (touch dry) also ... .
this is absolute filth!! .. couldn’t even finish 5oz of this beer- i mean this beer isn’t even that old and it tastes like its 8 years old and sat in the sun.. .oh well, can’t win them all .. . .

Have you ever heard the term "breakfast cereal?" Cereal is any damn meal of the day that I want it to be.
Don’t try to limit my potential

DiarmaidBHK (3581) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 28, 2013
Bottle from Beckley’s Country Store. Pours apricot with very little head. Slight fruitiness on the nose. Has a bit of a grape like vibe on the tongue. Not getting much Belgian Ale type action. Finishes clean. Not my favorite DFH.

nuplastikk (4708) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 12, 2013
750ml shared at Madison tasting. Hazy golden tan body. Thin, oliy, steady off-white head. Smooth and refined, but a little overpriced to say the least..this beer should have been in sixpacks. Enjoyable enough, mellow currant tones, smooth golden malt. Some mild honey in the finish. Not quite World Class, but enjoyable.

GothGargoyle (1421) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 1, 2013
Clear light golden with a small pale head. Aroma is peach blossom, blackcurrant, heather honey. Light bodied, sweet on the palate with a lingering fruity aftertaste. Flavour is blackcurrant, peach, heather honey, hint of apricot. Can’t stand the band but quite enjoyed the ale.
