3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
[on tap in Burlington, VT]
Sweet brown sugar aroma with some spicy melanoidins and weak, citrus accents. Hazy orangish brown under a white, patch and ring. Sweet and sour flavour with lotus root malt and a vegetal bitterness that is balanced by the sweetness. Some spices make this a flavourful beer, but the finish is soda watery and the bitterness is a bit quinine-like. Medium body, moderate carbonation.

Tap GLB. Aroma is sweet with banana and cotton candy. Taste is similar. Nice body and smooth but has the gummy taste. Some citrus and light bread make it better.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
From the 22 ouncer, 2009-2010 series marked 102009-1207. The pour is a handsome golden color with less than a finger of puffy of-white head. It is slightly hazy. The aroma is a crisp, clean wheat scent with some orange peel highlights and subtle hops. The mouthfeel is in the medium range with a honey-like consistency. The taste radiates with orange-citrus, subtle malts, and subtle hops intertwined in an elegant balance. I think I even note a little honey in there. It’s drinkability is high. I highly enjoyed this one and I want to try and grab another couple of them before it is retired for the season.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy orange with a big white head. Aroma is bubblegum, and roses with a bit of citrus and corriander. Taste is the same, and relatively dry with solid carbonation, and clean finish. This is possibly my favorite example in a style that I generally don’t care for. $3/22oz

Bomber; thanks Alex!! Pours clear dark gold with thin white head; big dose of coriander, orange peels and lemons; smooth, light texture with a touch of ginger; easy drinking with oranges and just a little yeasty character; maybe a little spruce too; not to complex and definitely heavy on the coriander, but quite nice overall
