4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy gold to amber pour with a 4 finger fluffy off white head. Aroma is loaded with fruity citrus, salted melon and some earthy funk. Flavor is like Belgian IPA meets citrus punch, light cereal, nice, mellow funkiness, a little salinity, tons of grapefruit and sweet tangerine-like sweet orange, finishing with light earthy, soggy wood funk and lingering sweet citrus. Light to medium body with a creamy entry leading to a juicy, but still creamy finish, light, blanketing and slightly sharp carbonation and a lingering mouthfeel somewhere between crisp and slightly chalky, dry. I really enjoyed this one, the best usage of citrus in a beer that I can remember, I really gotta try out one of these yuzu fruits. Unfortunately at $14/bomber, although I really enjoyed this one, I don’t think that I will be likely to purchase again.

Bomber. Brett clearly evident in the nose. Huge billowy white head. Hazy gold body with effervescent bubbles. Effervescence comes through in the mouthfeel. Wonderfully unique; part hoppy, part fruity, part bretty. Really nice.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
My Bottom Line:
Citrus fruit and delicately toasted cereals are lifted by the fluffiest of mouthfeels, a profile leading to building resinous hop bitterness.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the glowing pale gold.
-The mouthfeel on this one is gorgeous.
-Yuzu is well integrated and does not jump out at you like a lot of fruit do in fruit beers.
-Chosen hops are aromatically harmonious with the yuzu, until the bitter finish that is.

Nose opening earthy hop aromas. Hazy copper with light layer of head. A bitter hop that is joined then cleaned by the yuzu smooth and amazing great hot weather beer.
