3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from 16 Street Liquor, West Vancouver; vintage 2013
Dark color, brown with red hue; medium sized beige head. Pervasive aroma, tart, fruity, of cherries and balsamic vinegar, old wine barrels, malt. Lean body; some caramel flavor, hidden; the acidity is too high, the beer loses any grace, it becomes a jackhammer; some red wine vinegar, with balsamic notes; tart and lemony too.
Too aggressive, no elegance, but still a good beer.

Smells like a stinky cheese. But once you start drnking it, you can't stop, you want to keep the taste going.

The good bottles of this are nicely semisweet with hints of cherry and a mild tartness that reminds of Rodenbach Classic, the less good bottles are really vinegar heavy and the fruit doesnít come through as well because of the high acidity. I am rating this tilted towards the good bottles, which Iíve mostly been lucky enough to experience.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 75cl, at Gaasa. A clear, reddish brwon beer topped by a small, light beige head. Chocolate, some vanilla, dried fruits, notes of dark berries and some raisins on the nose. The flavor has a distinct oak touch to support the chocolate and vanilla known from the aroma. Itís rather tart, with some dried fruits sweetness, berries and a lemony hint showing up towards the very end. Full body and a nice carbonation. Perhaps a bit much on the oak side, but itís a damn solid beer anyway. 140501

Bomber. Smooth fruity nose, with sour cherries and some acidity floating up. Dark brown color with reddish highlights. Very tart initial, with cherries, grapes, and sour apples / light acidity in mid palate / finishes with more fruit and a long stretch of acidic tingling -- felt on the tongue, in the throat, and in the stomach. Thin body with mild astringency. Very tasty. Similar in character to Rodenbach.
