On tap; poured a ruddy gold color with a smallish head. Aroma of wet bread, yeast and banana. Flavor was the same, with a nice dose of sweetness and banana. Quick smooth finish. Solid beer. dmac (6577) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUL 13, 2011
22 oz bomber release #19 8.3% ABV. Poured a clear golden body with a small fizzy white head. Aroma was Belgian yeast, grains, hay, clove and light banana, sort of reminded me of a fruity Belgian wit. Body was highly drinkable with a lighter carbonation and a medium body with a soft subtle finish. Flavor is yeasty with lots of fruitinss, bready, lemon, citrus and tropical fruits. Solid. So far I’ve like all three offerings from this brewery. Nothing mind blowing but all three I would be more then hapy to drink again. Arayaga2 (2224) - portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 13, 2011
Release 19. Gold with a half-inch of white head. Aroma is a little rubbery with light fruity sweetness and spice. Tastes better than it smells, with a full belgian golden fruit and spice profile, with appley tartness along with warming alcohol into the finish. $5/22oz fata2683 (2202) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 10, 2011
on tap at 1702 pours deep gold with a medium white head. Aroma is floral with lots of sweet honey and candied sugar. Flavor is very malt forward and again sweet candied sugar and honey that masks the alcohol well. ekoerper (599) - Iowa, USA - JUL 10, 2011

Bomber, release #11.
Pours a hazy golden yellow color with a half finger frothy white head that quickly settles into a thick lasting ring. Spots of lace left behind and visible carbonation bubbling up.
Slightly earthy aroma with boozy sweetness, zesty spice and light fruit notes. Belgian yeast character is prominent with hints of alcohol, bubblegum and apple. Peppery with hints of grassy hops. The nose is pretty subtle however, and nothing really stands out.
Medium bodied with a nice balance of earthy hops, peppery spice, Belgian yeast, alcohol and light fruit notes. Floral hops as well some zesty/peppery spice up front which is countered by the Belgian yeast characters and pale malts. Hints of candy sugar, apple, pear, alcohol and bread. Well balanced with a decently masked ABV. Tastes better than it smells with a nice mouthfeel but nothing extraordinary going on here.

Bomber courtesy of douglas88. Pours clear gold with thin white head. The aroma is thick apricot, apple and some pear fruitiness to go along with a lesser amount of grainy maltiness. The taste is similar with robustly sweet and thick mixture of apples, pears and apricot esteriness mixing with some grainy malts. ucusty (2693) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUN 24, 2011

Bottle @ home. Golden yellow appearance with a fluffy white head. Sweet, light Belgian yeasty, golden malty nose. A touch of fruit tartness, belgian golden malty flavor. Sweet, belgian ale finish. Not bad. tastybeer (1853) - Indiana, USA - JUN 10, 2011
Draft. Pour is gold with an excellent white head with fantastic retention/lacing. Aroma is spicy belgo yeast, banana, hay, grass, lemon. Flavor is sweet, fruity, grassy, a bit of lemon. Palate is mostly sweet, high carbonation, light body. Rather bland but done to the style very well.
