1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Consumed at a recent tasting. Served in a SAVOR snifter.
Pours a hazy light golden color with a good white head, nice retention, and a good amount of lacing. The nose is quite pungent, with an absolute overload of coriander coming through along with too much pepper. The orange isn’t noticeable. The flavor is not good. The pepper and coriander completely dominate my taste buds and not in a good way. It leaves the palate extremely dry. Very harsh. Not much to say other than spice bomb. None of the underlying beer comes through. I would not have this again.
Serving type: bottle

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
651mL thanks to someone at our tasting! The pour is a hazy, light yellow, glowing in the glass. Thinning head. Aroma is all apples. Really not looking so hot from the get go. Taste is very nice: massive white pepper, dry and spicy citrus, potpourri herbal, heavy sage. Fresh and bitter rather than medicinal. A nice surprise after hearing from Travlr how awful it was. Would really benefit from a none acetaldehyde nose.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tried at a UPick6 Tasting of Voodoo Brewery. Bottle Pours a clear Orange/yellow a few floaties. Has a big bubbly white head which diminishes quickly. Fruity, spicy aroma – peppercorns jump out, but the other spices are restrained. Sweet, tangy, spicy flavor. Yeasty/Malt and pepper finish. Not for me really, Drinkable, but I won’t buy again.

I thought this was a very nice beligain white. The tsatse had a little corriander and spice but not enough that it was overwhelming. Very tasty.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22nd March 2009
Cloudy amber beer with a very frothy white head. Head is grapefruit bitter with pepper! Palate is crisp and dry. Starts with bitterish orange and coriander. Some semi sweet wheaty malt follows, then sweet orange as the beer froths in the mouth. Some creamy malt and then a dry finish with some grapefruit bitterness and quite a bit of pepper. Interesting well joined up beer.

22oz Bomber: Beautiful clear, golden orange with a thick, boisterous head! Lots of sweet and spicy notes in the aroma. Distinct berry and citrus notes (sweet) and pepper (mild) for the spicy notes. Malty, light to medium bodied with a slight dry (spicy) finish. Nice mix of sweet and spicy but nothing too outstanding. Enjoyable and drinkable, but nothing outstanding. A bit too light bodied. Seems like they added a bit more spice instead of making a more full bodied white ale. Worth trying if you come across it but nothing to go out of your way for.
