COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belgian pale & pilsner malts w/ Styrian Golding for bittering and Saaz for aroma. Ginger predominates the spicing. Fermented in primary with Ommegang’s house yeast, followed by secondary with Brettanomyces bruxellensis. Dry-hopped in secondary w/ a blend of hops; Tettnang being the stand-out. The flavor profile is very herbal with an earthy undertone (very fitting for a Belgian-style farmhouse ale). The dry finish and pronounced hop aromas hide the 8% abv very well. Dangerously drinkable for its strength and character.

Batch #4 Bomber from 2009. Pours cloudy orange with foamy white head. Aromas of earth, basement, lemon, floral, pepper. Mild-moderately sour and bitter. Overall, the beer is interesting, but I found something mildly unpleasant with the back end taste.

750ml bottle, corked and caged. Pours a lovely deep golden orange with a one finger frothy white head. Head recedes to leave rings of sticky lace. Lots of funk in the aroma, although, not as strong as I expected. Tart and sour elements as well as some ginger spice. Flavor is simultaneously fruity and funky. Orange peel, lemon peel, cherries, pears, all with Brett and Ommegang’s house yeast. Tough to describe. Light in body with sharp, active carbonation.

Batch #2 march 2008. Pour cloudy golden yellow with a huge fluffy white head that lasts. Aroma is the best part about this brew with nice florals and sweet bubblegum with faint must. Taste is very dry musty with notes of sour funk sweet faded juicyfruit and a bitterness throughout. Palate is medium and full carbonation with a lasting dry finish. This is a fairly tasty brew, but after getting the aroma I was hoping for more. The alcohol also shows quite a bit in the end.

Slightly vinous, peppery, Belgian yeasty, spicy, ginger, lightly sour, dry belgian ale flavor. Dry, spicy finish.

750ml bottle poured into a tulip glass. The beer pours a golden yellow with a white head. Lots of carbonation in this one. Aromas are Belgian yeasts and some funk...a little sour. Taste is funky from the brett, but also a little sweet from the yeasts. There is a bit of sourness too that is not expected. Overall, a nice change of pace and a unique beer that is very good.

A - Pours a rich slightly hazy deep golden-orange color with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down to a thick ring around the glass leaving behind some nice lacing. S - The aroms is a mix of strong tart and sour elements. There is a lot funkiness and some hay and spices mixed in as well. T - The beer starts off with some sour and tart flavors right away. There is also some malt in there and some fruitness as well. Through the middle, some stronger funkiness comes out alongside some hay and some spices as well. The finish is a mix of slighly sour and tart and just a bit sweet with a bit of funkiness and some fruits/earthy flavors as well that linger. M - Medium bodied with moderate lively carbonation. The sour and tart flavors feel great and beer feels really smooth and even pretty crisp. The finish has a nice mix of sweet and sour flavors. D - Very drinkable. The balance of tart and sour as well as other flavors is really nice. There are also some nice funky elements mixed in as well.

Batch #4, May 2009. So this bottle has nearly 2 years on it. Aroma is that of belgian yeast and brett with some malts coming through. The appearance is a light golden/amber color and pours with a fluffy white head. The taste is very similar to the aroma and is an example of a solid farmhouse ale. It is very drinkable and comes across the tongue with prominent belgian , brett, and hop notes with a malty sweetness coming through as the beer warms. Complex and drinkable is my overall verdict

Light orange color with lively bubbles. Very little head. Aroma is earthy and spicy but not picking up the advertised funk. Flavor is certainly farmhouse but again, little funk. Very dry palate but not really a clean hop bitterness. I was expecting better.
