3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ML bottle purchased at BevMo in Redding, CA. APPEARANCE / THE POUR: Dark golden color, looks similar to a pale ale. 2-finger white head that starts out dense, but collapses somewhat quick. Nice Brussels lace in trappist glass. Meniscus is fast rising, characteristic of a beer at 6.5% ABV. AROMA / BOUQUET: Grassy, hay, hops are in the forefront of this beer, with the 3 different yeast strains in the background. TASTE: This is more of a Belgian-style pale ale to me...Big hop presence, yet the Belgian character gives it a softness in the yeast character. PALATE: Dry entry, full-on hops astringency, black pepper mouthfeel. OVERALL: A well made Belgian ale (again I think its a Belgian-style pale ale) It is a well made beer. A good session beer.

Bomber from Binny’s in Schaumburg, IL. Slightly hazy light gold pour with a soapy white head. Aroma is yeast and hay with some lemon. Lighter bodied that drinks pretty clean. There’s a mild dryness to the finish that adds another dimension as well. Solid brew.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow straw colour with a small off white head. Nose has lemon peel, hay, spices, Belgium yeast and candied sugar. Very appealing. Taste is nice balance of spicy belgium yeast and lemon peel/citrus. Good balance of fruit and yeast. Juicy mouth feel. Nice sweetness in the bitterness. Decent.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is one gorgeous looking brew! A hazy deep golden-orange color with a huge fluffy off-white head that has a mind of its own. Velvety texture. Flavor is hoppy and dry but otherwise kinda bland. I kept hoping for more citrus notes or some of other dimension. Still tasty, but not superb.

Kinda woody, kinda cloudy, really tangie flat...but Ill accept for the style. Good dried fruit, I am guessing it needs time to come around...may be too young or not stored well.

This poured a hazy yellow color with a white head. Aroma was of hay, grass, candy sugar, yeast, and lemon Peel.. Flavor was similar, a bit on the spicey side, lemony and sweet.

Strange but not bad, expected more spicy, sage and a weird lemon deal going on. Really really foamy. Guessing bottle conditioned and not stored correctly. Pretty expensive so I’d do it again if cheaper.
