2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bomber poured a clear gold with a lasting white head. Aromas of straw, earthiness, barnyard funk and light fruittiness. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of bread, earthiness, light fruittiness and light barnyard funk with a smooth dry lingering funky fruity finish. I think New Belgium is becoming the Dogfish of Colorado, just because you can put it in a beer does’nt mean you should!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at Brixx Asheville. Pours yellow with no head. Slight fruitiness on the nose. Honestly I don’t eat a lot of apricots or plums so I’m clueless as to what this tastes like except cloying and artificial. Finishes clean and it hides the alcohol well which makes of feel a bit like an alcopop.
