3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Notes of boiled peanuts in the aroma -- for those of you from the south, that’s a good thing. Great wax-sealed bottle/bomber, decent label; slightly misty. 2011 vintage, sampled 2013. Dry, medium astringency, ample bittering, a little boozy and woody. A little medicinal. Oily mouthfeel with an alco-bitter finish. Honestly, I didn’t enjoy this very much, but it’s probably due more to the the style than the execution. Thanks, LuckyDog.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Aroma is malt forward. Pours a cloudy amber with little to no head. Sweet malt taste up front and funky finish taste I couldn't identify. Medium bodied and minimal carbonation. Overall, I didn't like the finish taste.

2011 Bottle. Big vegetal and rotten fruit nose. Flavor is similar. Yeast seems to have taken over in a bad way. No thanks.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours an amber color with some orange hints to it and a minimal flat head. Some hints of citrus to it with a sweetness that’s almost reminiscent of banana. There is a sweetness to this beer that’s almost reminiscent of a Belgian style.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a cloudy golden orange color with a half finger white head that quickly settles into a lasting ring. Spotty lacing left behind.
Earthy hop aroma with hints of grassy soil and zesty spice. Peppery with some light citrus. Not much malt or yeast character.
Medium bodied with crisp carbonation and zesty spice. Much hoppier than expected with some earthy, grassy flavor along with some pepper, coriander and citrus. Some bready yeast but faint. Not much else going on. Bland and too bitter for the style.

Funky aroma on this thick weizenbock. Hits the style, a decent drinker and refreshing.Some banana, and not significant clove. Some orange flavour but overall not exceptional for the style, a worthwhile offering. Above average carbonation.

Bomber from Sam’s Quik Stop. Pours a hazy orange color with small floating particles. Medium sized creamy tan head. Average head retention and nice lacing. Aroma of big banana notes, wheat, spice, faint stone fruits and faint hops. The taste is banana, orange, stone fruits, toasted wheat, spice, caramel and a faint hoppy finish. Medium bodied with spritzy carbonation. Nice beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Hazy amber with foamy head. Smells like bubblegum, amoxicillin with lemons and a bit of toast. Taste is sweet and spice. Palate is a little wonky not quite sure what its doing in my mouth... First sweet and hard with a quick spice punch then receding then the spice comes back with a light dry finish- but it feels slightly askew.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Strong aroma is wheaty and fruity with a yeasty undertone and a hint of butterscotch. It pours a pretty dark golden amber that is slightly hazy and has a fairly thick, if not persistent, pale golden-tan head that leaves some good lacing. Crisp flavor has woody, wheaty, earthy and fruity tones with hints of butterscotch and hops. Smooth, firm-bodied texture has plenty of tingle and sass, and leaves a fizzy, woody finish.
