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.

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.

Grainy biscuity malt nose, yeast phenols - banana and light peppery notes. Pours golden, thin head. The flavor is more grainy malt, dry, peppery, light yeasty spice and pepper. Easy drinking, dry, ok.

Draft at uber. Pours a hazy dark burnished copper with a loose white head. Big tangy banana nose. Not much else happening in the aromatics. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Bananas and caramel on the mid palate. Longish mild fruity estery finish. Nice but not very interesting.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Naked City. Pours a deep darker lightly clouded golden with a even tight white head that leaves a bit of lacing. Good amount of bubble gum esters with strong amount of banana. Sweet hay and wheat as well very light clove and some white pepper. Quick sweetness up front, moves into a somewhat green banana flavor then a sweat sock spent grain flavor. Finishes on the dry side, but the graininess lingers.
