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.

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.

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 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle- Pour hazy orange with a head that reduces to a collar of big bubbly foam. Aroma is kind of basic, spicy hops, maybe some yeast. The taste is much more Belgian, yeasty and banana esters, it tastes like a Belgian golden ale, not bad.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
I’m intrigued by this beer, and after having it, satisfied. It truly lives up to its name -- a Belgian style PA. The base PA is all there, and quite solid. But the Belgian yeast comes in at the beginning, and establishes this brew as unique. Think of what you would expect from a "Belgian style PA," and there it is. PA -- not the most innovative style. Add some Belgian yeast -- there you go, intrigue. Well executed. Recommended.

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.

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.
