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.

DrSilverworm (5038) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 25, 2013
22oz bottle, shared. Bottled March 2013. I got the final pour. Mostly hazy orange amber color, with lots of fine yeast particles in the body. Thin off-white head. Leaves good reaches of lace. Medium body. Smooth, crisp lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Caramel malt, spicy hop, belgian yeast in the aroma. Moderate bitter taste, light sweet, lightly tangy. Decent belgian pale ale now, but it was probably much tastier fresh.. Others that tasted it seemed to enjoy it very much

Bomber, June 2013. Pours hazy golden with aggressive, fluffy white head that lasts and laces. Smells of citrus, esthers, and apple cider. Drinks smoothly with mild lingering bitterness. Light to medium bodied. Tastes of citrusy hops up front with toasty malt, apple/pear, and esthers. Crisp finish.

demitriustown (1033) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - APR 5, 2014
Bomber: Aroma has got a nice fruity belgian goodness, yeast, spicy and a nice hop notes as well. Appearance is a cloudy orange golden with a thick white head that lingers for a while. Taste has got nice Belgian esters, nice hop notes with a yeast backing. Palate is very nice with lingering spicy hop notes with a yeast lingering. Overall, A really nice refreshing Belgian ale. Cheers!
