22oz bottle 9/28/16 (Binny’s-Naperville)-42° in Tulip-Pours golden with a small white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, spices, coriander, orange peel, and slight hops. Taste of the same with some banana and spices coming in on the back end. This medium bodied brew is well balanced and quite tasty. In ’02 this beer probably was off the charts and it still is now.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
From the Encore release the 22oz bottle pours with a clear gold body that supports a white head of foam. The aroma offers up plenty of sweetened wheat, citrus, coriander and banana. The taste comes across the palate with a nice creamy texture as it unloads banana sweetness peppered by shards of spicy coriander and cloves to midway. At midway it becomes a bit more citrus like as the modest wheat note takes on a slight quick bready quality. Into the finish the persistent banana and spiciness are met with a bit of a candy like bubble gum note and a pear flavored cotton candy character. All in all a pretty solid wheat beer that achieves some balance between the sweet notes, spicy notes and citrus.

Bomber from Whole Foods PM. First off, just let me say that I was ecstatic to see this at Whole Foods, as I had given up on my chance to ever try this beer as Greg intended. I know this is an encore, but I am thankful for that. The pour is cloudy golden with frothy, white head. Nose is tripel/maibocky, with pale malt, hops, some fruity tartness, that light-skinned fruity fructose. Tastes malty, fruity, somewhat sweet, notes of apricot, peach, white wine, smooth finish.

Bottle pour sample at Dominion Wine & Beer. Clear yellow with off-white head. Aromas and tastes of herbs, spice, citrus. Medium body with a dry finish. Kind of run of the mill 14 years later with how much craft beer has grown since then.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
It pours clear golden witha white head. The aroma has caramel, Abbey yeast, nectarine and banana. It has a medium body with mild carbonation. The taste has astringency, sulfur and grassy notes added and is very dry. This is not bad and interesting, but dumbfounding what this used to go for on secondary market after trying it.
