3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2009 Bottle from Samís in Durham. Pours very light golden, almost appearing clear as it pours... but settles into a light, bright and hazy golden with a small white head when poured into a Chimay goblet. Nose of apples and pears, some lemon zest and mild Belgian yeast. Some honey. Similar taste. A little thin, and didnít finish as dry/tart as I hoped. But still very good, especially at $4.99/22oz.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours gold with a foamy white head. Mild yeast/spice/kandi aromas with a touch of grassiness. Medium body with foamy carbonation. It starts sweetish, progresses something more kandi, then turns very lightly funky and more grassy. It develops something like light stone fruit flavors in a subtle way. Finishes comparatively dry.
