3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated on 7-30-2011 at Bock & Rock in Minster, OH. This beer has a smal off-white head that mostly diminishes, transparent gold body, very little carbonation observed, and virtually no lacing. The aroma is some wheat, citrus hops, light grapefruit, and semi-sweet. The taste is sweet, wheat, lightly bitter, and citrus hops. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is light-medium bodied. This is an easy drinking beer and refreshing on a warm summer day.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a bomber into a tulip glass. Pours a hazy yellow with a huge head of white, rocky foam. It took about twenty minutes to get two glasses of this beer poured. The aroma was nicely estery and a lot like fresh baked banana nut bread. It also had a noticeably citra character that although sounds odd with the esters, actually works quite well. Taste is doughy and fruity. Very nice wheat beer.

3.0 T: Like the nose. Wheaty. Low bitterness with herbal and piney hop flavor.

Bottle. Watch out; if you donít pour it fast enough, it might fizz over the top! Pours an off-golden color with a white head. Aroma is strong floral hops, more like what I would expect from an IPA than a "wheat ale." There is a tinge of wheat aroma once the dust settles and the head subsides. Taste is quite hoppy at first with a wheat and citrus (typical of wheat beers) finish. Heavily carbonated - it felt like I was drinking warm Pepsi on a sunny afternoon in Texas. I think the carbonation in a way robs this brew of its flavor; sometimes all I could taste was air. (and yes, it was cold) Other than that, not a bad beer.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hoppy / unpleasant odor. Very difficult to find on this website. Very difficult to find on ratebeer. It would seem like this "brewery" likes to change their name or something. What kind of respectable brewery would be "production works"? Iím not looking to see a play! I want to drink a beer! This hoppy very bubbly beer is odd. There isnít much other flavor to it. Iíll finish what I have but Iím not going to try to look for any more. Erie- get your act together! EDIT: Ratebeer Iím back. The aftertaste is bad. -0.1.

Poured a pale yellow color with a thin white head. Aroma is very hoppy with lots of grapefruit and clove notes. Taste also is quite hoppy with lots of grass and veggies. Some good sweet malty flavors balance it out. A little one dimensional but a good amount of flavor. Aftertaste has some bitterness. Overall pretty decent. I wasnít expecting it to be this hoppy, but it works.

Bomber from Belmont Party Supply. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a monstrous light fluffy, frothy white head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of big citrus hops, some apple and a faint bit of malt. The taste is citrus hops and wheat. Lightly bitter finish. Soft carbonation. Medium bodied. Pretty drinkable.
