Draught in a flight at the brewpub. Pours a clear amber color. Nos has some slight citrus and clove elements to it with the characteristic Belgian yeast. Taste is a bit sweet with some slight banana and citrus notes to it. OK for what it is, just not my style.

22 oz. bottle from local grocery. Golden amber with light carbonation (tiny bubbles) and a creamy head that quickly dissipated. Mild aroma with notes of grass and citrus. Bitter taste and finish, maybe a touch of sweetness in the finish. I realize this is suppose to be "Belgian style" but itís a bit different than that. I like it.

Draught at Portland Craft, Vancouver
Hazy light amber color, with creamy head. Itís another sweet imitation of Belgian, without the true yeast character, but with a good level of sweetness, round mouthfeel, sweet malt flavor, lingering fruitiness, low bitterness; it ends with a very light feeling of creamy Italian cheese (stracchino).

650 ml bottle. Pours amber with almost no head. Aromas of cereal, grass, and light citrus. Flavors of malts, biscuit, and lime. Somewhat sour finish. Not what I was expecting but interesting.

Fairly standard Belgian ale along the lines of a triple. Pours light golden color, moderate head and carbonation. Taste is typical for the style, nothing stands out, nothing to complain about. I would drink it again if I wanted this style.

Pour was awfully hazy for a non-wheat beer. High alcohol taste overpowered the flavors in the beer and the first couple tastes reminded me of a barley wine.

UPDATED: DEC 11, 2011 Why do I have a feeling this beer is going to be a piece of shit? I had a bad feeling as soon as I picked it up off the shelf. Bomber bought at Super 1 in CDA, ID. Pours hazy cantalolupe with a medium cream-colored head that collapses into a blanket of foam after a minute or so, leaving some decent lace. Aroma is similar to rancid meat. Taste is sweet and spicy with a bitter finish. Very strrrraaaannnge. Has a hint of that Duvel character the brewers were undoubtably going for, but a hint is just a hint. They either needed to make a reasonably acceptable clone, go above and beyond Duvel, or make a successful experiment based on the Duvel recipe. This does none of the above.

Bomber. Pours a solid orange honey golden color with dense white head and active carbonation trails throughout the glass. The aroma is a blend of cereal malts, honey, cloves and earthy yeast. The flavor starts aggressively sweet and yeasty with lots of honey, bready malt and cloves in the mix. The body is creamy with moderate carbonation and finishes dry and tart with more cloves and honey sweetness. While not as full-flavored or complex as a classic Belgian, itís a decent interpretation of the style and a good one to pair with roasted meats.
