3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber bought at Super 1 in Rathdrum, Idaho. Pours clear golden with a small white dissipating head (I donít think Iíve ever seen a filtered tripel before). Aroma consists of bubblegum, wheat crackers, clove, cheese, earth. Taste is spicy clove, boozy. Highly carbonated, simple mouthfeel with none of the creaminess I appreciate in this style. Seems pretty unrefined.

Draft sample, head ok, God lace, light golden body. Aroma light fruity. Taste banana and pineapple, honey. A little sweet. Palate light, but nice, carbonation good. Finish is sweet.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma was at first sort of Brett-witty, and then it turned towards having an artificial grape sort of thing. OK label, bomber. Very clear, pale yellow, with a clingy white head. Tangy, fruity, fermented fruit/winey notes. Decently bittered, warming. Has some complexity, has some brutality. I donít know what it is, but thereís this grape soda thing that keeps cropping up at odd points in the flavor profile and the finish. Medium body. A tanginess that coats the tongue - itís not quite the finish, but itís a little adhesive. Gets cidery as it warms. This has its strengths and flaws, but at $2/bomber on fire sale, this was a slam dunk. Habersham Beverage Warehouse, Abercorn, Savannah. New Yearís Eve Eve 2014.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Spiced, coriander-touched aroma. Hazy appearance, mostly copper with thin head. Taste is boozy, strong, totally bananas. Palate wraps reasonably thin. Decent beer, nothing like a quality Belgian tripel but itíll do.
