5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Had at at Tap That in Oceanside. Was told from Travis there that this won gold medal at San Diego int. Brew Fest. I know why! This brew is fantastic. Crisp spruce, cedar, grass aroma! Crystal clear! Big white frothy head. Up front huge big peppery hops, Note, this was an extremely pleasurably first sip as it did have the usual over the top tar burn hop oil, that becomes too distracting. This grew was pure freshness. Believe it or not I could have had a dozen if it weren’t fir the 9.4%. A must have!

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Biernavigatie, 9.4% ABV, date stamped is 122815 (is that BB or bottling date?), large sample. Almost clear orange to amber color, medium frothy head. Aroma is fruity, strawberry, bubblegum, sweet candy. Quite sweet in taste, bubblegum and strawberry candy again, soft to medium fruity bitterness. Obviously bretted now, though no overcarbonation. Is this intended? At first its great, but after a while more plastic comes through, like in their horrible overrated lambic. Getting down with each sip. Again a seriously overrated homer product.

Bomber - heavy pine and citrus aroma with some floral notes too. Kinda surprised me on the initial whiff. Carmel malt for balanced, moderately bitter. A bit of a surprise.

Bottle from Saveur-Biere.com - Color: clear golden blond beer with small carbonation and medium white foam. Smell: sweet fruity domination. Sweet caramel malt and hoppy finish. Taste: full body with malt balanced with really nice apricot taste. Very intensive apricot. I never got this felling for a beer. Good attenuation. Very drinkable. Aftertaste: wet bitterness and apricot. Really nice!
