3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A hazed, sunny to golden amber body supports a slowly fading, one inch, frothy to smooth white head, which creates a frothy ring, thin island, and rounded peninsula with a few dots of lace
Aromas and flavors of hay and earth with rounded white spice, light grainy sweetness, along with a subtle, underlying, complex layer of nearly tart-yogurty-pear-faint pineapple-funk on a smooth, lightly creamy medium-light body with controlled, soft, active carbonation creating a clean, mildly fruity residual offering a somewhat tacky texture with spice, subtle herb, and balancing, light, grainy sweetness as everything fades out, rustic and traditional, yet clean and orchestrated
22oz bottle a few days after first KC release, served at 45º and warming into Orrefors Beer Taster

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from the bottle store that is outside of Crooked Stave. I rolled it. A big white fluffy head over a dingy golden beer. I smell sugar and Belgian yeast with the correct malts. Gentle fruit, too. First sip is pepper and aggressive fruit but that fruit fades. It is earthy and malty. A fizzy feel.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber share thanks to Kaylyn. Appearance: golden yellow, finger of white head, oklacing, cloudy. Aroma: yeasty earthiness, wheat, light grape/pinot, slight other fruit. Palate: light body, average carbonation, dry finish, very crisp and refreshing on palate. Taste: sweet fruit and light malty sweetness into a faint bitterness. Overall, nice summer porch beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at the tap room. Slightly hazy yellow-gold color with a medium white head that burns away quickly to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Yeast, malt and fruit in the nose. Medium-bodied with flavors of herbal yeast, mildly funky fruit and malt. The finish is fruity with a short yeast aftertaste. Decent overall.

Cloudy, dull tan. Aroma is a bit yeasty-fruity. Quite thick, syrupy, yeasty. Okay but not refined enough.
