Candy sugar, spice, citrus, and a little sour funk in the aroma. Flavor is not what I expected from a Belgian style ale--sweet and herbal. Spice and some fruity bitterness in a very dry finish.

bomber from secret santa? bottle says pale ale; web site says Belgian?? different brew for me and probably not my style, but well done and a different brew for me - big white heady foam - aroma of tart citrus, yeast, funk, taste was high carbonation, lemon, citrus, tart, dryness at end.

mathieuc (3335) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 3, 2016
Pours a super clear golden with a small white head on top that leaves nice lacing. Nose is of madeira, brown sugar, light alcohol and feels really oxidized overall. Taste is pretty sweet and offers cardboard-y caramel and toffee. Medium body, medium carbonation. Not sure of the age on this bottle but it is almost clinically dead now...

tom10101 (5291) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 2, 2016
Bottle (750 ml) shared at tasting. Clear golden with a small bubbly white head leaving little lacing. Aroma is oxidized and carboard forward but it seems bad per se with rotten fruits, strong herbal notes, candi sugar and a disturbing sugary presence. Taste is sweet and oxidized with rotten fruits, herbal notes, weird spiciness and candi sugar. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Rotten fruits finish. Horrible.

Minderbinder (3279) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 2, 2016
Bottle 750ml. Pours clear golden with medium white head. Good lacing. Aroma is of oxydation, sugar, cardboard. Taste is of oxydation, sugar, barley sugar, bitterness, fruits. Palate: Full bodied. Soft carbonation. Overall: Over the hill, or this one was never adequate.

czar (7723) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 1, 2016
pours hazy bright gold with a small white cap offering minimal retention and lacing. rotten fruits, oxidation - old grass, white ice tea, spices, some sweetness - candi and honey; cardboard, yellow raisins, hint of citrus zest. moderate carbonation - could be brighter; light body - oily; semi-sweet spicy finish. disgusting.

coldbrewky (1689) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - JUL 29, 2015
Fridge lurker. Bomber. Batch E!049. Lovely aroma of Hay and pine. Opaque yellow body with an outrageous growing head. Fine sandy lacing left behind in patches. Body is biting sour and brett with a zesty zing of hop on the gentle wheat body. Decreasing body leads to enjoyable moderately long dry finish. A profound feeling of loss when I tried to fill the glass again and found the bottle to be empty.

Ithaca has its gems, this is one of them .. . quite a lot of brett yeast in this one to go with the light grain and straw. mild saaz on the end .. mouth is a bit on the spritzy side .. all and all, different and defining .. . . That’s a handsome banana, very appealing!!

Batch E!008
Tasted on 10/15/11 from a capped 750mL bottle that I shared at Smitty’s house. Pours murky light orange with a thick white head, leaving thin, bubbly lace. The nose is lightly fruity with a cheesy note, and some sweeter full cereal malt. The flavor is the same with a hint of caramelized malt. The body is full and creamy with average, very smooth carbonation, and a medium lightly caramelized and lightly fruity finish.
