Clear gold beer. Little white head. Softish dry palate. Sweet dry malt, a little metallic and a little brandyish in its warmth. Some orange peeping through before a dry finish and a warm afterglow. Unsubtle and a bit clunky.

bhensonb (11362) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 18, 2009
Bomber from Liquor Max in Loveland, CO. Orange/copper color with a decent white head. Belgian kandi and spice lie beneath sweetish, somewhat tropical, fruit aromas. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Flavor is typically Belgian. Spice/yeast, hop, kandi and lighter fruit. Heat is not noticeable. Its smooth and tasty. It drinks way too easy. Not all that sweet for a Belgian anything. A very good ale, but probably not going to duke it out with the big guys.
