2012 bomber. Poured slightly hazy medium golden with a nice off-white head. The aroma picked up juicy grapefruit, white pepper, and cloves over a caramel and lesser biscuity base.. fresh and vibrant, and I enjoyed the Belgian yeasty twist. The flavor opened tart with peppery spices and nondescript bitterness.. mixed fruit and bready notes at the core.. the spicy yeast worked well with grapefruity hops at times, and just OK at other times. Medium-bodied and spicy on the palate.. decent feel and flow.. too many clashes to be great.

On tap. Poured clear gold with a white head that dissipated, but left a nice lace while it lasted. Aroma was mainly sweet grains with a bit of biscuit and hay and just a hint of underlying floral notes. The flavor had more floral with the sweet grains that mainly had a biscuit note.
