"more complex than Duchesse, but less flavorful. What was there was a nice redish-brown ale with a nice dry fruity aroma. more subdued and not AS sour, but quite good. more cherry in the nose and flavor even though it was not as sweet. medium body, and smooth."

Bomber from Wilbur’s. Appearance: finger of khaki head that does not last, amber color, light cloudy, light lacing. Aroma: vinegar, cherry, light molasses,. Palate: light body, average carbonation, dry finish. Taste: sweet fruity tartness to medium bitter. Overall, hoppiness was unique, but a little to sweet for me.
