CelticBrew (897) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - JAN 27, 2015
Pours from bomber a clear amber with a small white head that dissipates fairly quickly leaving a ring of foam and decent lacing. Aroma of Belgian yeast, citrus, pine, sweet malts, banana, pepper and cloves, spicy hops, and candied fruits. Flavour of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange zest, orange rind, clove, pepper, bubblegum, pine, floral, light honey, light banana, and yeast earthiness. Good amount of pine bitterness on the finish. Good stuff....

Bottle. Poured hazy copper color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy earthy hop and yeast aroma. Medium to full body with slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy smooth bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration.This is a solid beer.

22oz bottle, thanks to tmoney99 for sharing. Very cloudy orange color. Thin ring of bubbly white head. Wow, very interesting potent assertive flavor. Lots of citrus, biscuity caramel, spicy character, belgian-type yeast. Apricot-like character on the back end. Moderate to bigger bitter taste, moderate sweet, mild heat on the end. Bigger body, kind of slick. Light carbonation, but itís not so bothersome... Pretty easy-sipping overall. A bright, assertive, interesting beer. Seeing the tea notes alexsdad06 mentioned.

The spicy aroma dominates the pour and comes at me like a shelter puppy lookiní for a new home. A soft, white, half-inch head tops the amber brew and lifts the scent of caramel and heavily spiced banana out of the glass with a vengeance. The lacing is thick and persistent on the glass, coating the sides and drying sticky in minutes. The taste is heavy, but the palate almost light and a little sticky, as if the two were wrestling to dominate the beer. Instead, the fight balances the adventure. Very bitter, but not unpleasant, very spicy and almost peppery with a perfect amount of carbonation that persists through the bottle. A long bitter finish for a brew with flavors like this almost always bring me around to thoughts of more, and this brew does not disappoint. Iím glad I have a bomber...one more glass....why wouldnít I?

NachlamSie (2860) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Bomber bottled in June 2014 shared by this one guy. Pours a really cloudy light orange with a tall and dense white head. The aroma is packing a decent hop bouquet with fruity esters and a hefty malt base. Notes of lozenges jump out with cheesy undertones and pine. The flavor packs some well defined pine character which makes me think the cheesy notes arenít stale hops, but a related to the yeast. It isnít unpleasant at all. The finish is strongly bitter, the 102 ibu claim seems almost reasonable. Strong notes of lemon are present throughout.
