Bottle from bitbucket. Thanks, Liberal Hippie!
Pours a deep amber with a nose of boozy plumb wood sauteed in a prune sauce and poured on a biscuit. Flavor is doughy sweet raisin with a light fruit finish (tropical, kinda mango-ish). Nice mouthfeel. Good beer.

Tap. Pours a cloudy amber gold with very little off-white head. Aroma of spices, malts, and sweet bread. Taste is malty, with burnt sugar, oranges, and citrus. Heavy on the tongue, the high-ish alcohol content is noticeable, but not in a bad way. Overall, very good!

Bomber. Big white head. Cloudy deep orange almost red color. Super yeasty nose with some banana. Full bodied drink with a lot of spice, cinnamon and clove. Bits of banana again. The finish is a little spicy and smooth.

CampesinoTino (726) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 6, 2012
Bomber. Appearance is a rusted orange and gold color with dense off-white foam. Lots of ripe banana, pear and coriander in the aroma with some toasted malt sweetness around the edges. The flavor begins with a strong coriander spice kick followed by banana, lemon, honey and clove. Also some bready malt and tart yeast notes in the background. The body stays dry and well-carbonated throughout with a mildly spiced, fruity finish. Nothing fancy but a nice change of pace from most spring seasonals.

Big monstrous head followed by a bigger Belgian spicy nose. Creamy, spicy taste. Clean long finish. Yumm.

22 oz. bottle from Beer Junction in West Seattle. Nice lookin’ brew, I must say. Thin and wispy head sits on-top of a copper, ruby body. A nice fruity bouquet hits my nose. Coriander, oranges, banana, and a subtle hint of pineapple blend perfectly together. This has an awesome aroma. Wow, the texture is creamy and allows the beer to just slide right down the throat. Easy drinking here. This beer has all of the aforementioned aromas represented in the flavor. The one thing that really sets this beer apart, is the bitterness at the end. A striking bitterness that subtly lingers on the back of the throat and tongue. Much more pineapple in the flavor, than in the aroma. A true masterpiece, in my opinion.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 29, 2010
Bomber. Pours a lightly hazy, dark honey-amber color. An inch-thick head of spongy, cream tinted froth settles to a fat-bubbled mound, leaving dense honeycomb patterns and wide, jagged rings of lacing behind. The nose is bountiful in it’s spicing, yet tamed by careful malt balancing. Grain of paradise is prominent, and coriander is also clearly defined, while the malt bill hints at red berries and bread. Belgian yeast is spicy and mildly tart. Flavors follow suit, again showing a bevy of peppery, grainy spice, touching on tart berry and a blend of blonde and brune candy sugars. Yeasty dough is substantial, and floral hops are more prominent than expected. Overall, it’s pretty nicely balanced, but the coriander is a little heavy for my liking. The palate is medium-plus in substance, a little frothy, and semi-dry on the finish. Pretty solid brew. Not really my style, per se, but it’s well made and I can appreciate it.

From Pt Roberts (WA) Marketplace. Poured a body of clear and dark amber beneath a creamy, tan, enduring head. Aroma was most pleasant, featuring who knows what spices and yeasts. Flavour was equally argeeable, mouth was sold, and the finish smooth. Not a bad price, either.
