Poured from 1 pint (6 fl oz) bottle. Orangey yellow with white head. Caramel malt aroma. Same taste, but fairly unmemorable.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
DATE TASTED: December 22, 2013... GLASSWARE: Maudite snifter...OCCASION: fantasy football championships on the line... APPEARANCE: dark reddish-brown glistening body; uneven white head; steady bubble with hazy smears of lacing--not unattractive... AROMA: bright, malty presence; yeasty bouquet--fresh and floral--decently balanced... PALATE: warming, unexpectedly creamy body; aftertaste affords more than the "fleeting experience" the label foretells--and the aftertaste is not one to hold on to...TASTE: a cinnamon, slightly medicinal/syrupy experience--surprisingly not what a bier de garde is supposed to be; astringent wine-like red blushes the pallet late; a struggle to chew, let alone enjoy ... OVERALL: bad bombers really disappoint, and though this beer kindles winter spirits with a firewater kind of fever, this truly resembles no b.d.g. I’ve had before...

650ml bottle from Archive Beer Boutique. Golden amber colour with a sweet malt honey aroma. Lots of flavour and a good hit of alcohol.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz bomber from Evergreen Discount. Deep copper and a little hazy with an off-white head. The aroma is malty and rich with caramel, milk chocolate, vanilla, bread/toast, yeast and dark fruity esters. Similar flavor with medium sweetness and a touch of bitterness. Slick, creamy feel to a medium body with soft carbonation and a lingering sweet finish.

2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
65cl bottle to tulip glass, beer pours a dark hazy amber with an off white head. There are floaties in attendance. Aroma...smells dead on exactly like one of my homebrew Belgians...cherry, banana, lemon, grass, orange floor cleaner. Taste is...odd...starts sweet then drops off to almost nothing but a super light bitterness and it doesn’t taste all that great. Palate...way out of balance, co2 medium...mouthfeel thin. Overall...this is just weird but not shitty like most macros....2.3 for effort.....

Yeast, funk, slightly sour bier de garde. Earthy and malt notes. Not my favorite of this style.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bomber. Hazy light amber, egg head. Nose is quite sweet... dried cantaloupe, toffee, spice. Flavour is white raisin, caramel, dusty. Finish is drier than the taste. Nothing mind-blowing, but fine.

Nose is sweet orange, caramel, grapefruit. Flavour is the same with a grainy feel and some spice. Alcohol is apparent, warm and inviting.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Big bottle, shared round the table @ the brewery. Medium bronze body, lively white head. Sweet honey and soft esters, no real hop character. A milder belgian style ale. Kind of "meh" about this one.
