3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. Pale copper colored in appearance with a half-inch of sudsy foam. Aroma is predominately toasted malt notes and toffee with some grassy hops at the end. The flavor has more of a Belgian yeast influence that blends bready malts, caramel and clove with a bit of tart fruit and earthy hops in the background. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied and adequately carbonated with a mildly creamy texture and dry, spicy finish. Pretty decent BPA that makes for a nice change of pace from the hoppy Pale Ales that dominate the Pacific Northwest.

Pours a reddish-copper with minimal off-white head. Aroma of biscuit, ripe banana, and mild, spicy hops. Flavor is more biscuit, with a little bit of banana and spice, and a nice, dry finish. Strikes a nice balance between being flavorful and refreshing.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bright copper with slight chill haze, thin head and gentle carbonation. The aroma is a mix of fruit (overripe apricots), plasticy phenols and a gentle hop spice. Dryish palate, malt-accented with light caramel and a little bit of toasty/biscuity malts. Decent Belgian-style session brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber thanks to Brewdad. Pours a crystal clear copper color with a large white head. The aroma is big banana and spicy malts. A rich Belgian Ale; lots of dry spiciness, some light biscuit, banana and pepper, not much hops here besides some light earthiness and light bitterness in the tail. Very drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz bomber courtesy of bvc. The pour is a lightly hazed orange copper with a one inch egg white head that falls with nice lacing. The aroma is herbal honey sweetness, grass, along with a light clove over-ripe fruit as well. The taste is big herbal right away, turning to the clove ester fruit yeast, and finishing with grassy toasty malt sweetness. Flavors are all pretty assertive, though do meld decently, creating a full, interesting flavor. The palate is medium bodied, spritzy fine natural carbonation and a bit of a thinner finish. Overall, interesting beer - thanks for sending my way Brandon.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours clear copper with a white smear for head. Aroma is biscuit/malt with a touch of yeast/spice and some mild light fruit. Med body. Tho it tends to thin. The flavor is fruit/yeast/spice (some peppery hot bits) and some sweet malt. Itís dry overall, and going towards astringent in the finish. Easy drinking? Wow, is it ever. Somehow itís not so Belgian as Belgian is, but itís a very tasty and drinkable ale.

Light bronze with a frothy, thin cover. Wonderful pepper yeast aroma accompanied by subdued banana. Green banana and watered down peppery yeast flavor. Interesting enough to be enjoyable from start to finish.
