Bottle:   Dirty golden, a bit hazy, moderate frothy white head, spotty lacing.   Bready nose, slight grain, even a touch of blackened banana.   Seems somewhat yeasty on the tongue, somewhat like an American Tripel, but its also has some graininess and a smidgen of ashtray to it.   Breadiness doesn’t linger long.   A bit of wet straw like grassiness brings up the backside.   I was hoping this one would be a little light, fluffy, a bit bright, but its heavier, yeastier, and more bready than I care for.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Coats the tongue well.   Lingering grassiness after the finish.   Light sweetness as well.   Its okay, but not one I would reach for again.

brilliant copper kettle orange color with ivory sheen. Nice banana, honey, dry hay, earthy hop aromas. Light to medium body. Lightly dry banana chip, grainy pale malt, herbal, spicy yeast flavors--good belgian style.

riversideAK (5936) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 23, 2011
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.

(22oz bomber thanks to bu11zeye) clearish gold, few bubbles. Nose of Belgian yeast, spicy, golden raisin, white pepper, dry chalky. Taste of umami, Belgian yeast, very dry, very lightly sweet, weird, highly carbonated.

jgb9348 (5319) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAR 21, 2013
Crisp copper coloured body with a very thin off-white head. Aroma of pale malt, yeast, bread, pepper, bubble gum and a hint of curacao. Light-bodied; Pungent yeast flavour up front with a definite belgie characteristic, some lighter malt notes, a hint of earthy hops and a little toffee sweetness. Aftertaste shows mainly malt flavours with a hint of earth, some very light sugars and at the tail end - a little of the complex belgian yeast strain, but not enough to rescue the beer. Overall, a below par offering with some good thoughts, just not well executed. Still, nice to sample this beer that I’d never find on the East Coast, but wish I would have packed something better in my bag across the country. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Pear Delicatessen in Seattle, Washington on 11-February-2013 for US$3.83 sampled at home in [the real] Washington on 21-March-2013.

22 ounce bottle. Pours a light copper with a small off-white head. Aroma of malt, fruit, spice, and hops. Taste is malt, bananas, cloves, yeast, and grass. Decent but not too exciting.

Taster from Bomber at the Hanshin Seed Event. Belgian pale ale, crackery malts, slight tart/sour and almost a perfumery floral quality to it - interesting. The taste is a bit rough giving me mostly graininess, then a fruity tang and some breadiness. For me a miss.
