Cross pollinate your tastebuds with Belgian imagination and you’ll be sipping this ale while visions of pluots dance in your head. Pluots? A hybrid of apricots and plums that impart a subtle sweetness. Ferment that with a wild Belgian yeast strain and you have a fruity yet spicy nature with a body reminiscent of red wine. Delicious.

Bomber. This beer looks kind of like champagne and is clear light golden and lots of carbonation bubbles floating up. An almost white head is fizzy and noisy and leaves a thin layer. I smell fruit that includes apples, white wine barrel, and apricots. The flavor begins with some spice and the alcohol shows immediately. Yeast is interesting and has a bit of a wild effect. The feel is slick and smooth. This is kind of like drinking a mix of a cider and a wine and offers the sweetness of the former and the dryness of the latter. Some grape skins are tasted and pale malts are the backbone. This series is kind of getting old.

22 ounce bottle. Pours a golden yellow with a half inch white head. Taste is of apricots, plums, yeast and some spice. Similar aroma. Has a nice body that coats the mouth. The finish is mostly clean and a bit warming. The alcohol is hidden well and doesn’t show for being 10% . Extremely easy to drink and very enjoyable.

Bomber from Bev4Less. Pours mostly light orangey yellow, soapy big bubble foam that looks dense at first but quickly disspates. Aroma is funky fruit and belgian yeast and hay. Almost something like grape juice in there, or those nasty juice cocktail drinks. Taste is okay... white and red wine like. This is less like a beer and maybe more like a cider? Not sure. I could see this growing on me, as it combines the bitter sourness of some wines, with a dry quality and fruit notes that can be pleasing and different. Not everyone’s cup of tea, for sure, but interesting and different. You need lots of faith to keep buying and trying the lips of faith series. Guess I’m glad I did this one.

maley1 (892) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 12, 2013
Clear golden pour with small quickly dissipating white head. Aroma of pears, lychee, yeast and caramel. Taste of pears, apricot, lychee, spicy yeast and apple juice. Low carbonation, full bodied and overly sweet. Alcohol well hidden. Better ice cold, as it became cloying as it warmed, tasty though.

Ughsmash (7364) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 10, 2013
Bomber. Poured light-medium golden with a short, dense white head. The aroma picked up sweet apricots and plums (imagine that) plus dry, lightly funky fruity yeast over some meaty stone fruits.. rich vinous notes right on the back of the nose.. very interesting. The flavor found a mess of alcohol-enhanced sweetness at the core (plums, red grapes, honey, and apricot), with dry fruity yeast, heavy peppery alcohol, and tart fruit skins around.. finished sweet, sharp, and hotter than I wanted.. this had a lot of interesting stuff, but it didn’t play too well together. Medium--plus bodied and overly aggressive through the palate (sweetness, boozage, and tartness, all at different times).. subtlety could’ve taken this a long way.

TomTron (424) - Aiken, South Carolina, USA - JUL 8, 2013
Pours a clear golden with little to no white head. Smells like someone just got done playing a round of golf and then tried to cover it up with some fruity cologne. The flavor is slightly tart and the fruit isn’t as overwhelming as I thought it would be, but damn if it still isn’t really sweet. My lips are losing more and more faith in NB with each one of these offerings they are producing. Just nothing that really works well in this one.

krumbum (703) - truckee, California, USA - JUL 8, 2013
Glowing bright orange copper colors. Smells of sour fruits. Taste is spicy up front fermenting fruit tartness in the finish. palate is light syrupy yet it rinses refreshingly away leaving light tastes of fruit behind.

dresden (1153) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - JUL 8, 2013
Clear golden with no head. Aroma of a grape juice, apple juice, some peach. Taste is quite fruity with some dry grape flavours. I dont have a clue what a pluot tastes like, but this is interesting. Not a bad beer, quite refreshing.
