3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
bomber (2013 vintage) - we’ll see how the IPA portion holds up. Poured into the one and only St. Bernardus Watou slightly crooked Trappist glass. Nose is fruity esters and old hay. Sip adds black pepper, and just like Unibroue beers, I am having a hard time describing the flavors. I like the flavors and funky (from the label) is close. A tad sweet and somewhat bitter. Makes for a unique apéritif, but I’m not having any of the suggestions from the label. Before I add the rating, didn’t pick up on the IPA. Would be interested in trying a fresher batch.

bottle - Pours amber with an aroma of citrus and Belgian yeast. It’s a good, flavorful brew with citrus and spice character, assertive hops, and a medium body. It seems to hit what it’s trying to do pretty well though it’s not outstanding.

22 oz bottle. Amber in color with a decent sized off-white head. Aroma is of heavy perfume, spices, light citrus, grass, and grain. Taste is of grain, straw, grass, coriander and bitter florals.

Bottle. The look is copper in color, white colored head, and a slight haze. The smell is spice, earth, fruit, yeast, and berries. The taste is tang, fruit, yeast, and funk.

May have been a bit past its prime - it literally exploded out of the bottle, though still a very enjoyable beer; amber color; citrusy, spicy aroma; nice citrusy hop flavor with the spicy, fruity notes of a Belgian ale

Perfectly balanced beer with slight hop taste. A good summer beer or saison you could drink multiple of.

I can not see how this got such a high rating... To me it doesn’t have a whole lot of flavor. I can taste the hops and it has a tangy spice, but that’s all i taste. It has a mild hoppy smell, and a nice caramel orange color. But it also appears to be unfiltered. It has tons of small solid chunks mixed throughout. they settled after a while. I cant give it a higher rating than a 3.4. I just wasn’t that impressed.

This is a good beer from New Holland. Definitely worth trying. It wont knock your socks off, but it wont disappoint either.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap: hazy copper-ish, amber-ish body with a dark beige head, frothy & foamy atop the brew. Aroma contains light citric, leafy hops, mild hay & farm funk notes with a touch of damp cotton. Slightly grassy, lemon zest in the finish. Taste is very similar with more sharp orange, citrus, & pineapple zest out of the gate. Farmhouse character comes through with faint cotton & hay funk, slightly musty & damp. A touch of tartness near the finish, but far from sour. More grassy & leafy hops in the aftertaste. Like a mild, hopped up saison. Pretty good stuff.
