2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
650 ml bottle had in Germany with very much thanks to Travlr for taking his time to bring this all the way from America. Pours cloudy yellow to orange with a very small off-white head. Aroma is a fine mild citrus and wheat maltiness. A very estery fruit and strong citrus flavor. Mellow yeasty and light citric. Bitter and mellow estery palate. A srange beer with a lot of added flavor. This really shoud be a fruit beer.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance: Near clear, deep golden body with a white head that deteriorates in a flash. Poof. Gone.
Smell: Decidedly sweet-scented, smelling of heady malted wheat, syrup, jellies, honeybear honey, and booze with little lemongrass showing.
Taste: Heavily sweet, quite sugary from the first sip on. Sugar, sticky honey, muscat jelly. No real hop character or bitterness to begin tempering this mess. Vein of acidity running through the middle. Again, not much lemongrass, mostly just raw sweetness. Faint, faint and a noticeable booziness on the thick, that-ain’t-exactly-luscious, toothsome finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-full body. Medium carbonation.
Overall: I was geared up for a sweet, heavy beer, but, ugh, this was just clunky, clumsy, and cloying. A sack of sugar would’ve been cheaper.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bomber shared at the 18th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering. Pours a slightly hazy orange color with a thin head that quickly fades. Aroma of tart citrus, lemongrass, faint wheat. The taste is tart citrus, apricot, tropical fruits, fruit jam and canned fruit cocktail. Low carbonation, medium bodied and pretty weird.
