3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden with a thin white head. Aroma is strong citrus. Flavor is hops with an even stronger citrus oil flavor which becomes more apparent as it warms. Finish leaves a little bitter astringency on the back of the tongue. Pretty interesting.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours orange amber with a big foamy off-white head. Interesting aroma with grassy funky notes, some floral sweetness. Not a particularly funky or dry flavor, this one just didn’t pack a lot of punch for me.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2012 bomber pours a clear orange with a big off-white head but practically no lacing. Smells like an IPA. Aroma is quite different: lemon, yeast, and white grapes. Tastes like a sour Belgian with a long dry finish Body is at best medium without too much carbonation. I’ve enjoyed some other New Holland "Hatters" in this series, but this is my least favorite so far. I probably will not try it again.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber: Aroma has got a nice hop texture, yeasty, orange, and a light spice note. Appearance is a cloudy orange with a thick white head that lingers. Taste is like a hoppy belgian ale, somewhat dry on the aftertaste. Medium to light mouthfeel. Overall, Decent stuff I would drink this one again. Cheers!

Pours orange with a tiny white ring. Smells funky and a bit like flowers. Taste is funky and mildly bitter. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and mild mouth-carbonation, New Holland farmhouse Hatter finishes with some bitterness and a touch of funk.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours with a large, off white head. It has fruity flavors of which it resembles apricot. There are other hops and a sweet, doughy aroma. It is a hazy, orange color. The yeast is predominate in the taste with some earthly and basement flavors. It is excellent on the way down with the complex flavors.
