Bomber. Pours a golden color that is slightly hazy, with a small white head. Aroma of sweet flowers and hoppy citrys. Tastes that same as it smells and is very smooth and crisp.

22. Thanks, Skoi! Crystal clear golden brown body, light white head. Somewhat hoppy and candi-ish nose. Medium body, some metal and darkly sugary notes. Uninspired.

Sampled a 22. Pretty nice brew, had a very citrus flavor and light hoppiness. A unique beer for sure and well worth a try if you get the chance.

Skyview (5242) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUN 14, 2008
From a 22-oz bomber and shared by BDR, pours a clear copper amber brew with a thick and lumpy off-white head that has some excellent lacing. Aroma of citrus and piney hops, some light Belgian yeast, caramel and a touch of dark pitted fruits. Taste is medium to full bodied, light carbonation with flavors of hoppy and vegetable hop character, light caramel malt, some herbal spice and a touch of fruit. Finish has a mild metallic aftertaste, semi-dry with a lingering grapefruit hop aftertaste.

Purchased this bottled beer at Liquor Mart. Expecting a belgian ale, the beer tasted more hoppy than I expected. Nice head, color and taste.

Ernest (6264) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 13, 2008
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is clear medium amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (cookie, caramel), moderately to heavily hoppy (resin), with a light note of alcohol, hints of sage and ash. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter. Medium to full body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. An American-styled hop bomb with nothing remotely Belgian about it to my senses, but an ok quaffing APA/IPA if you like the green/American hop aroma. Not my thing at all, but hop lovers will probably dig it.

On tap @ Avery Tasting Room poured a clear tarnished copper with a small lingering amber head. Aromas of carmel, yeast, pine, earthiness and light fruittiness. Palate was light to medium bodied and crisp. Flavors of carmel, yeast, pine and light fruittiness with a crisp dry lingering moderatly bitter finish.
