3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver
Cloudy blond color, with creamy head. The aroma is very mild, at least it’s a bit spicy. Good flavor, malt, with a quite strong spicy character and delicate fruitiness; the mouthfeel is very smooth; strong bitterness too.
Quite close to a real Belgian, a bit more fruity and bitter than the average.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours orange gold with a foamy/creamy off-white head. Aroma has NW hop and a hint of sweatsox. This is a very nice aroma. Med body or better. The best thing - there’s a lot of earth/sweatsox at the start. Then it gets fruity and bitter. With some NW hop. This is amazing stuff. My tongue is feeling barnyard while there’s fresh fruit still. Frickin brilliant ale. If I had the skill, it’s the beer I’d make. Now I just had a mint choc stout, but that was good, so I don’t think this is a relief rate. The aroma and flavor are to die for. Individual parts of the numbers don’t qualify for high, but the overall does. It’s greater than the sum of its rating parts. :)
