3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Aroma has notes of honey, caramel Malts, Belgium yeasts, and bread. Medium amber hue with a small head that mostly diminished and left no lace. Flavor is heavy sweet and medium bitterness. Palate is full bodied and oily soft. Overall a good tripel.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a golden orange color with white head. Honey, malty, bready, Strong honey flavor with some malty, floral, alcohol also. Normally, I probably wouldn’t go for a tripel with a big honey component. But this is a good tripel in its own right, and the honey complements it nicely.

Not bad at all it has a sweet start then hits you with that tripel yeast... All and all I’m happy would tell friends to buy it at $7.50 a bottle...

Pour is a dark yellow with a small white head. Aroma is some fruity, yeasty esters with a nice sweet honey. Flavor is is again a nice yeasty fruit with sweet honey to follow. Leaves a nice earthyness on the tounge. This beer is not a one trick pony with just the honey. It’s a decent triple with a nice honey backbone.

Bomber from Liz. Pours dark ruddy copper with a transient beige head. Aroma has ginger, yeast/spice, and a touch of sweet. Med body. Flavor has honey, but it’s slightly earthy, Belgian yeasty, and definitely ginger. I think I’d like more earth and less honey, but it’s a good drink.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudish orangish reddish brownish. Even has a yellow hue around the edges.Thin to no head with bits of foamy spit.Some light lacing.Mild carbonation.
Aroma is nice with floral,orange,spice and a bigger sweet honey aroma.
Taste is very nice with a good honey taste floral orange some spice blend with a honey sweet nectar the ginger is hard to detect but gives a general spice which lasts long through some of the bittering or finish. There is a nice tang with this on the sides of the cheeks keeping the sublte but noticable sweetness balanced with the spice. There is a good carmel note with the sweetness as well. This is suprisingly very complex and good. For a good honey quality in a beer this is up there.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle, Vintage 2011, served in tumbler- poured a transparent brownish amber color, lively medium carbonation, white ring around the glass for a head. Aroma of honey, late summer fruit, and note of dirt. Hits the mouth with a medium body, malt is weakened but it’s made up for it by a ginger/coriander tone, middle has darkened fruit, finish is made of more of the same with some small hints of pepper. Very nicely done- makes for a good companion while I enter in ratings and corrections.

22oz bomber poured into my Chimay Trappist glass. 2011 Vintage. Pours a clear dark amber with minimal head. Aroma is mostly honey with a slight nose of sour green apple. Taste is light sweet. Alcohol, honey and some mixed berries. Light bodied with a somewhat thin texture. Lively carbonation and not much of a finish. Overall, I like this beer. Nothing I would seek out but I’m glad I’m drinking this one.
