3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty decent stuff. Dry finish. Complex nose, with some floral notes. Peppery and full-bodied, I think I should pick up another one and let it age till 2012.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a crisp, clear gold with a short white head. Pale, bready, lightly citrus, Belgian aroma. The flavor is also very bready and light with some citrus flavors and a light lingering herbal flavor. Light carbonation but clean flavor. Easy to drink. Higher ABV is well hidden.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bomber: pours a cloudy copper with a small white head. Aroma of yeast, hops and candy sugar. Taste: so this beer is quality... a nice citrus, banana, candy sugar and yeast taste followed by a nice touch of hops. The hops are definitely noticeable but they don’t kill the other flavors in the finish and a nice candy sugar flavor lingers. Medium-low carbonation that makes this extra drinkable. This sort of reminds me of the De Ranke XX but better. Hard to taste the alcohol. I am glad I bought this one.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Served cold from 22 oz. bottle. Sorry, I couldn’t wait until 2012. Pours clear gold in color, with an aroma of mixed fruits. Taste combines cloves, caramel and hops. Good spice, good bitter finish. I’m a big fan of this. If someone in the LA-area wants to share one with me four years from now, drop me a line.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour a clear golden color with a white head. Smelled of sweet hops. Flavor seemed a bland bitter sweet combination that was carbonated yet smooth and finished bitter. It did get better as it went on, mostly due to adjusting to the bitterness of this Belgian.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This one is all about Marvin Gaye smoothness and style. No big deal aroma, no big deal look. What a big deal with the silky delivery and finish. Grassy, mildly yeasty, apricot butter and velvety all the way. Mild smell and taste but quality all the way. Thanks for the offering. 22 oz. 2008.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2009 Bottle. Pours a great golden color, with a little haziness. Medium beige head .I didn’t get a huge belgian influence in the taste. More like a nice, solid, strong IPA. Clean finish.
