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.

Bomber from Whole Foods Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear red color with a large fizzy offwhite head. Fairly poor head retention and lacing. Aroma of ginger, caramel, honey, stone fruits, toasted malts and a bit of a metallic note. The taste is toasted malts, caramel, bread, honey, ginger, brown sugar. Medium bodied. Pretty good beer. My constant disappointment with New Holland hasn’t been present the last few beers I’ve tried. I’m glad they’re improving.
