weihenweizen (1738) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - SEP 27, 2012
Refrigerated brown bomber 2012 vintage poured inot a weizen glass. Pours translucent light orange with deep golden highlights with small white head. Some bib bubble lacing, medium body, and pine aroma. Taste is grapefruit, some pine, and slightly bitter hop finish. Pretty good, but how is this not an IPA.

Bottle. Hazy gold pour with a tall foamy white head. Aroma is odd. It’s rather herbal and floral with strong yeast and fruit notes. Very unique for a Wit. Taste is floral hops, herbal notes, soft grains, flowers, tropical fruit, strong yeast notes, soft spice, and light citrus. Body is light-medium with a moderate, bubbly carbonation. Ends with more flowers, yeast, tropical fruit, grains, toasted malt, floral hops and herbal notes.

obguthr (3845) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - SEP 26, 2012
Classic orange peel and coriander nose, good strength. Clear amber, medium head, fair lacing. Coriander and bread crust flavor, hints of rosehip. Breadiness intensifies then fades to a lengthy finish.More spicy when quaffed. Not dull at all, very good wit.

DrnkMcDermott (2800) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - SEP 22, 2012
Bomber bottle bought 6/12 from Binny’s for $4.99. Does pour hazy, pale and cloudy (yeah, a little redundancy over there). Carries a nice, malty smell slightly tempered by hop and, I think, anise. Taste is malt forward, with hop notes only slightly behind. Citrus hops, with lemongrass in the spice sachet, and maybe that’s the usual coriander. Yeah, a slight touch of soap or lavender at the end. Still, I can’t help but find this interesting.

johnnyoski (438) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Bomber. Pours a cloudy, golden color with a very thin white head. Aroma: Soft combination of citrus and floral hops with a hint of doughy yeast. Taste: Toned down floral hops, sourdough with lemon grass tones. A bit of a sour, soapy taste lingers. More towards a watery texture with average carbonation. An interesting tasting combination but not something I need to have again.

Dorwart (2375) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - SEP 8, 2012
Nice strong bright white head of fine bubbles. Yeasty aroma with some oranges, wheat, lemon grass and some soft grains. Color is a milky gold. Good helping on hops in this brew provides a nice strong bitterness from the first swallow. Lots of citrus and grapefruit along with more wheat which lends to a chalky mouthfeel. Lingering bitterness with some lemon. A very hopped up witbier. Interesting style combination.

Butters (3766) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 3, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 15, 2013 Shared at my bros house on labor day. Hazy straw yellow pour with ample bright white head. Nose and flavor of Orange zest and coriander and citrus. But not as much as a hefe. Great citrus hop profile compliments nicely. Very effervescent. Good stuff. EDIT: however, sampled side by side with Heavy Sease Riptide and Great Divide Heyday, this was my least favorite. It was the most bitter of the group and the least refreshing.

demitriustown (1068) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - SEP 1, 2012
Rating: Bomber: Aroma is nicely hoppy, with the gum ball, coriander and orange zest scent mixed in like most Belgians. Appearance is a cloudy orangish/ golden color with a thick white head that diminishes quickly. Taste has got a more of a pungent lemon zest note to it, and a nice hop texture mixed into it. Bright, medium to low carbonation on the tongue. Basically, it’s what it is. A hopped up Witbeir. Overall, Decent but not stupendous. Cheers!

bhensonb (11099) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 1, 2012
Bomber from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours hazy gold with a white head. Seems to have a lot orange zest in the aroma. Med body. Belgian yeast/spice and lots of orange zest in the flavor. Orange oil even. Has much more character than many wits. Nice.

marcus (6517) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 31, 2012
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours golden with a fading off-white head and a fruity aroma. There is a sweetish yeasty pale malt flavor that turns dry and more bitter at the finish.
