red pour some light latte foam. Aroma bananas, apples. Crisp apple juice flavors blend right in with banana bread yeast. watery body for a belgian - easier to drink! not amazing, but it ends up being much better and integrated than I expected.

Tap at the brewery. A: Purple red with a creme color head.N: Raisin, prune, toffee, apple, banana, clove, some acetic acid, esters, some pine and earth.T: Quite sweet. A bit balanced but not much.M: Alcohol burn, medium body, fuzzy carbonation.O : Decent ale. Not sure about the apple or the fact the booze has such burn. It?s not the tragedy its overall rating would suggest, though.

On draft at the brewery. Pours a light copper color with a medium white head. A big fresh fruity nose, yeast and banana. The flavor is dry earthy malts, yeast, big fresh fruity core. Very solid. The apple is not massive, but adds sweetness.

1.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Clear golden and very light copper coloured body with the slightest orange glow and a fast-dying super thin head - this looks more like a cider than a beer. Aroma of apples, light malt, sour brett and a little bit of citrus. Light-bodied; Sharp bitter apple flavour at first with a touch of malt, light spices, alcohol and a lot of metallic notes with no depth, no complexity and no smooth flavours. Aftertaste is simple and undefined with a little more of the same tastes - bitterness, a touch of apples and no complexity. Overall, not such a great beer - missing from all sides and not worth trying - especially from across the country. I sampled this 65 cL gold-wax topped bottle purchased from Made in Oregon (Pioneer Place) in Portland, Oregon on 13-April-2013 for US$9.95 sampled at home in Washington on 18-November-2013.

From bottle at Portland Cheers to Belgian Beers festival 2013. Light golden color. Aroma is sparkling apple juice; really nice. Taste has only hint of apple over a pale malt profile with a hint of yeast flavor. Fizzy effervescence on finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Aroma of apple and a little astringent, the taste is sour but not overly so. Light and short through the palate, and is a very light yellow in appearance. What I appreciate about this beer it that while having characteristics of fruit it is still a nice light beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Made in Oregon. 5.8% ABV. 8 IBU. Pours lightly hazy pale gold with a slight white head. Aroma is rather earthy/Belgian. Light fruit esters. Med body. Flavor is arguably a bit of apple, a good bit earthy, and Belgian yeast/spice/esters. It’s dry. It finishes that way. It’s far from bitter, but the apple sort of goes earthy sour a little bit, so it has an effect of more hop bitter. Or something silly like that. There’s a lot of flavor, and the apple backdrop keeps coming forward. This might be a beer for those who like tart/sour. It isn’t exactly that, but it seems that way. Very different and challenging in its way.
