3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Poured a lovely shade of lighter orangey-golden with a shorter, spotty white head. The aroma picked up lots of tart berries and fruits plus floral notes over honeysuckle and a kiss of redder fruit meat.. more floral as it warmed up, along with a solid Belgian yeasty character. The flavor found tart berries and floral notes throughout.. fruit, honey, and bready notes supported.. finished with tasty, interesting tart fruit, clovey yeast, and building, honey-fueled warmth.. tasty and interesting. Medium-bodied with a good level of tartness on the palate.. a few too many sugars on the back, but it was still very enjoyable.

On tap at La Trappe. Big fruity nose, kinda funky and tart, cheesy. Not bad. Dark golden clear with thin foamy-rocky white head. Medium body and carbonation. Starts fruity and tart with some apples and sour peach. A little funky and cheesy, with crisp fruity-tart finish and after. Not bad.

650ml Bottle purchased from Beercraft. Pours an orange color without much head. Tart feijoa is prominent, with the hibiscus more subtle. The Belgian yeast flavor balances nicely against the feijoa.

bottle. clear dark gold under a small white head. light colored fruit aroma with pear and spicy red apple skins. highly carbonated palate with a tart dry finish. flavor has a lot of red apple notes particularly the bitter skins. a feijoa is described as a pinapple/guava flavored fruit native to south america. i’m getting an unpleasant tart, bitterness from this beer. not a fan.

Bomber poured a clear golden amber with a lingering ring of ivory foam. Aromas of bread, fruittiness, hibiscus and light earthiness. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of bread, sour citrus, hibiscus and light earthiness with a smooth lingering citrus finish. Actually quite a mess!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz bottle. Pours a clear golden amber with a white head. Apple-y berry aroma with a pungent spice sensation I can’t figure out. Fruity berry and apple flavor, bubble gum and clove. Fruit flavors evolve into some orange peel and berry, a little perfumey, with a lingering tartness. Aroma was a little off-putting, but it ends up okay.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tulip at Global. This had so much going on in it. Funky notes, fruits that were all over the place, candi sugar, big malts, flavorful yeast, and a bit of oddness. I should give pineapple a special mention. Really interesting and the alcohol was not tasted.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle. Packaged on: 01/29/13. Best enjoyed by March 2014. A clear rust/amber pour with a thin beige head. The tangy aroma is dominated by candi sugar, plums, apples, green grapes, and lemonade. Kinda floral. Goes down relatively medium-bodied and smooth, yet syrupy. Fairly sweet upfront taste-wise with some candi sugar and plums. Quite tart afterwards with lots of green apples and sour lemons at the end. Some vinous notes. Acidic. A touch of warming alcohol throughout. Tasty.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, off-white, mostly diminishing.
Body is medium amber.
Aroma is lightly malty (grain), lightly hoppy (herbs, flowers), with notes of bubble gum, ammonia, detergent, cotton candy, pepper.
Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, unclean.
Medium body, watery texture, lively/fizzy carbonation, moderately alcoholic.
A horrible creation. Artificial and chemical nose is truly disgusting. Sour and dirty flavor experience almost prompts expectoration. Shows pretty much zero effort. Sheesh, how low can NB go?

Great amber color. Vinous, yeasty, zesty fruit aroma. Some tart to it. Taste is like a triple with an almost fruit beer tartness to it. Very good, interesting fruit flavor. Crisp feel. Good brew.
