750 ml bottle. Hazy amber orange pour. Frothy beige head. Clinging lace. Interesting overripe fruit malt nose. Tart, semisweet fruit malt flavor. Notes of plums, cranberry and rotted citrus. Moderate lingonberry notes in middle. Chewy, earthy stewed fruit finish. Pretty unique, but needs more cowbell!

Pours a cloudy rusty reddish orange with an off white head. Aroma of sweet fruit, honey, and light spices. Taste is mostly cranberries, very dry, and not much tartness or variety of flavors. Not nearly as good as I had expected.

(Bottle) hazy, bright orange amber colour with a small white head; aroma of honey, herbs, fruit compote; balanced flavour, slightly mineral with a long, light bitter finish

Bomber into wine glass. Now comes off as raspberry and strawberry. Plus ruddy orange. The mouth is a swirl of indistinct fruit, a touch of wood, and vague herbal backbone. Short finish with more acid and herbal kick. Kind of a sophisticated fruit punch?

Sharp sweet fruit aroma. Cloudy orange color with a large white head. Moderate sweet beginning that gets stronger in the finish with spots of tart bitterness.

wlajwl (6941) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - SEP 1, 2016
Aroma is funky berries and mild honey/band-aid. The flavor is Scandinavian berries, mild honey, malts and a tart/sweet finish.

johnnnniee (4374) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 18, 2016
Sample while checking out the expo at HomeBrewCon. Slightly hazy light copper color with a decent off white head. Tart berries light earthy herbal something to counter. Weird for sure but it kind of works.

750ml bottle purchased at Total Wine Pembroke Pines, FL for $13.99. Very good.

chinchill (5154) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 18, 2016
Large botle served in a Belgian snifter. Bottle Date: 8/6/15 Appearance: slightly hazy copper-amber; not much lacing gets left on the glass, though. Aroma: fruity, moderately strong and pleasant. Suggests both tart and sweet elements. Hints of honey and berries. Taste: Strong. Tart and sweet in about equal measure, with a bit less bitterness. Cranberry is pretty obvious; lingonberries less so; birch syrup not at all. Suggestions of plums and faint cherries. Feel: Near medium carbonation. Medium-full body; near puckering tartness. Overall: very interesting but not challenging. I’m glad I got to try this. Caution: very well hidden alcohol.

Bomber - Weird but well made. It looks like a typical amber ale....clearish colored amber ale with a med off white head. However, the aroma is fruity....cranberry, sour plum, wild yeast and raspberry. Tartness! I taste more cranberry, dry hibiscus, crabapple and a hint of cereal malt.
