Bomber from Bine & Vine. Pours hazy golden amber with a 4 finger foamy white head. Aroma through the head has lots of resin with some light pitted fruit. Med + body. Flavor is resin, fruit and herbal hop. There’s some typical Belgian yeast/spice. In fact it’s pretty spicy in a non-jalapeno sense. Head does some lacing. It’s quite flavorful. Nicely done.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle. lightly hazed dark honey-colored body with a small, creamy off-white head. mostly typical aroma, american hop pine resin / citrus fruit with a moderate touch of burnt caramel syrup and a hint of some Belgian yeast esters (which with some mint and shallot-like hop scents, seems to come across as a burnt toothpaste and herb smell). very soft velvety texture, nice to experience, but there’s a scorched butter and mint flavor throughout.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber. Poured medium golden with a sticky beige head. The aroma picked up earth, spicy pine, and floral hoppage (all nice and fresh) plus peppery/fruity yeast over sweet pale and biscuity notes. The flavor found spicy pine and citrus over mostly biscuity malt.. fresh, clean, vibrant hops.. finished more peppery, picking up a bouquet of light fruits. Medium-bodied with moderate-plus bitterness.. the spicy yeast really stood out as it warmed up, and it worked great with the rest of the beer.. excellent stuff!
