COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This straw colored beer greets with an aroma of noble hops, pears and Belgian esters. The flavor follows nicely with a moderately spicy hop and Belgian yeast effect buoyed by a soft malt body. The finish is crisp and dry. We enjoy this beer with spicy foods, grilled steaks, grilled chicken and mandarin salad. Where you take it is only limited by your imagination.

DocLock (7502) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 22, 2010
Bomber from Capone’s. Pours turbid canary with big fluffy 3-finger white head. Nose is very floral and spicy, with hops, pale malt, and a touch of sour mashy rock sugars. Tastes very spicy, fruity, tart, floral, with some funky and acidic notes throughout. Very dry, champagny, but I wonder if the degree of tartness is by design or not. Minor edit to add that the repour has little head and the tartness increases with the repour. This one gets even worse with exposure to air.
