3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Nugget Market in Woodland, CA. Pours hazy orange gold with a foamy 2-finger white head. Smells Belgian. Light fruit and mild spice. Medium body and tart/foamy carbonation. Flavor is fruit, citrus (coriander?), and some yeast spice. It’s a bit sweet, but I think there is also an underlying funk note. Finish certainly has citrus. A bit herbal, a bit citrus, a bit yeast, a bit funk? Works well for me.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from North Park liquor store: Poured with a frothy development of foamy head while the liquid was a dense golden color with a bit of white tint and a lot of sediment. Aroma is soapy and has a zesty yeast zing to it that isn’t as appetizing as I would expect it to be since it is from Left Coast The flavor is a bit stale of old yeast in a Belgian like fashion, however, the Belgian yeast used is more of a lab like strain just decked out with spice or at least that’s how I taste it as. Overall, not that tasty, and it actually makes me quiver a bit once I fully realize that the aftertaste is a strange mess. By that I mean a semi sweet honey like taste with a dash of spice left out to be oxidized, I don’t know it’s just to weird for me to describe plain and simple.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is sweet, bready, and oh yeah.. sweet. Starts out tasting like a sweet triple, but then it smacks you in the face with bittersweet fruits that fade to a surprisingly dry, and slightly hoppy finish. Very unique beer. Exactly what I expected from Left Coast.

Clear yellow pour. Lightly roasted malt flavor with lots of honey and nondescript fruit. Sweet honey flavor with some cereal and a bit of brett. Lots of alcohol on the finish. Sweet, a bit boozy, and messy.

22oz bottle from Whole Foods Hill Crest. Cloudy golden yellow with a one finger thick white head, some spotty lacing. Sweet citrus fruits with a faint Belgian yeast quality. A little sweeter on the palate then I was expecting, almost cloying, still pretty tasty.
