javiercrasher (227) - Granada, SPAIN - MAR 15, 2015
Bottled on: FEB 13, 2012. De color anaranjado con una buena capa de espuma blanca de fina burbuja y retención media. En nariz limón y cilantro, muy refrescante. Ligera de cuerpo y bastante gas. En boca entra chispeante, ácida y alimonada, poco a poco aparece el ahumado, que destaca al final. Sutil y equilibrada. Cervezón.

adnielsen (10199) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 12, 2015
Bottle @ home, picked up for $8 at Supermarket Liquor Fort Collins. Pours a hazy dark orange appearance with an off white tan head. Some burnt wood in the nose along with light meat, lemon, and some twang. Moderately sour. Light body. Low sweetness and bitterness. The flavor is sour lemon, baked ham, earth, and vanilla. Kind of interesting, but I don’t think I could drink a whole bottle.

Bomber bottled on January 15, 2015, purchased from Mile High. This beer is a light golden color with a significant haze to it. A small white head forms and quickly fades away. The aroma is fantastic. It’s mildly smoky with a solid bacon character in the background. Sour notes are up front reminiscent of vinaigrette and muscadines. No hop presence to speak of. I take a few sips and realize this is pretty sour. Not brutal, but definitely sour. Noticeable acidity lingers on my lips after each sip. The flavor has an almost fruity character to it with a complex backdrop of subtle, but really tasty smoked malt. This is much more sour than it is smoky, but it is tasty in the same general way that barbecue is so damn delicious. Smoky umami flavors are accented by tartness. I preferred this more direct take on the style than their Brett Lichtenhainer. This is a little less busy but pleasantly complex, well balanced and unique. I love this stuff. I’m gonna go buy some more bottles.

HIGHB4LL (837) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 23, 2015
Bomber from Wilbur’s. Appearance: slight white head, oklacing, straw, cloudy. Aroma: smokey pine, citrus, light funky yeast, fruity banana. Palate: light body, soft carbonation, dry finish, oily texture. Taste: smoked sweentness into funky sour sweet fruit, with smoke permeating through, ends with a smokey fruit. Overall, Very unique... but I can not say much more positive about it. Too smokey, smoke and sour do not mix. Maybe fits the style, but does not make it good still in my opinion.
