Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours translucent gold with a slight white head. Aroma is fruit ester and a bit of spice. Think banana is in it. Med body. Flavor is decently hoppy with banana ester. Itís very tasty, and I think the brewers nailed the style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at the Tap House Grill in Seattle. This brew pours a clear pale golden color with a medium thin white head that diminishes steadily to a film. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of yeast and fruit. Medium-bodied with flavors of earthy yeast, malt and subtle bananas. The finish is fruity with an herbal yeast aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Great cloudy golden pour with a frothy white head. Hints of Belgian sugars and grains on the nose. Touches of apples and pear in the front, grains in the middle, and a bit of hops in the rear. Good, not outstanding.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Got this from the COOP a week or so ago.. I think I paid about $8ish.. Pours clear dark straw golden... white head rises and dies back almost as quickly.. only okay spotty lacing for the glass.
Nose is decent for an "American Belgian Triple"... husky pale malts are the big player with some lite apricot and pronounced clovey/peppery phenols.. With warmth the spicy notes really light up and go to the front.
Flavor is not as integrated... okay balance between the spicy phenols and fruity notes... should have some citrus esters, instead a bit of apricot... with warmth, the spiciness really dominates... too much... Definitely "American" but is still okay... Dial in the yeasty components and I believe this could be a winner... With warmth the EtOH really blooms... drink it colder for the time being.
Medium/lite body could be a bit lighter with a more refined bubble... the carbonation is good but has a bit of a bite to it that shouldnít be there.
Overall, I love a good tripel, and this hits the mark but need some refinement... it is pretty harsh right now... Dial it down and see where the things land.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. Mostly clear orange yellow, foamy white head settles quickly and mostly fades. Spicy fruity yeast aroma. Initial taste is a spicy hot pepper yeasty bite, giving way to moderately sweet malts, bright fruits, slick and boozy. Average carbonation, light-medium bodied, moderately hopped. Tart citric and alcohol finish. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear amber pour some head quickly settles. Aroma of toasty cream of wheat cereal, honey, carbonation. Strong roast grains flavors and bubblegum yeast. Medium to full body light carb. Strong herbal bitterness goes well with strong roast grain flavors. Somewhat atypical for style as Iím used to more yeast flavors being central, but overall itís a success at creating something new and punchy.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber. Appearance is a clear light golden color with a cap of off-white foam. Aroma of Belgian yeast, lemon and malt sweetness. The flavor is a mix of honey, clove and brown sugar along with some herbal hops and toasted grains. The body is mildly creamy with medium carbonation and a sweet, medicinal finish. Could use a bit more complexity and carbonation.
