3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilbur’s Foco. Pours a clear golden appearance with a fluffy, off-white head. Super floral, almost cleanser-like, light lemon, dry straw, a bit musty aroma. Tangy, lavender, quite floral/potpourri, tart lemon, dry, a touch cheese-like flavor. Kind of an interesting beer, but not my favorite.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bomber. Poured fairly bright yellow with a short-lived white head. The aroma picked up sour, metallic fruit skins and citrus paired with a bit of sweet berry.. a bit of clove and ginger too.. a bit of dry funk accented.. I really didn’t get it. The flavor found the same tangy, metallic character throughout, along with dry floral and fruity funk.. orange peel and light white spices around.. finished dry and funky, but not that enjoyable. Medium-bodied, tangy, and dry on the palate.. somewhat tacky at times.. finished with strong, bitter warmth.. this just didn’t do it for me.
