22 ounce release #4 bottle from Total Wine, Norfolk, VA. Rated 7/20/11. Pours a hazy lemon yellow with a medium sized creamy head. Fair head retention and lacing. Aroma of tart citrus and big spice notes. The taste is pretty similar along with some apple and grape notes. Medium bodied. Nice beer. Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 20, 2012
Bomber, Release #14. Poured cloudy medium golden with an easily-resuscitated white head. The aroma picked up sweet and tangy orange notes over soft bready malts.. spicy clove and banana accents.. a touch hoppy for the style, but I enjoyed it. The flavor found bread and pale malts at the core, with banana, white pepper, and tangy orange zest around.. finished crisp with spicy, engaging yeast and complementary malty backing. Light-medium bodied with a very good feel and flow through the palate.. very good stuff! BOLTZ7555 (3027) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 7, 2012

Remarkably good for this brewery, and one of the best wits I’ve had in quite a while (keep in mind I don’t like this style, so it’s very rare to find one that I would even drink, much less enjoy)...while the adjuncts certainly dominate the nose (especially the citrus and pepper), which is honestly my only gripe, they are very herbal and spicy without coming off too much like scented soap or urinal cake or bubble bath...it’s a good blend of spices, just a little too dominant. Seems very clean to me, too...no grainy aftertaste or off notes. Very pleasantly tart and well balanced...neither too sour nor too sweet, nor overly bitter from the spices...a difficult combo to find in this style. Good mouthfeel as well...substantial and fluffy but still very quaffable. Difficult to stop drinking. I’m pretty shocked, but yeah, for me this is damned solid and very close to a 4+ rendition.

Bomber from Highland Wine & Liquor. I’ve had some trouble finding the information for the batch numbers for the Epic Denver brewery. I need to dig around their site some more. I wasn’t expecting a whole lot out of this one, as Epic’s Belgian beers seem to be hit or miss for me with a few more misses than hits. This, however turned out to be one of the best witbiers I have had. The pour is very light in color, very textbook for the style, with significant cloudiness in the body. The aroma is wheaty and grainy with just hints at orange peel and savory spice. The palate is pretty full, but not sticky. The grains come through nicely here, imparting raw wheaty flavor in a good way. There are suggestions of clove, light fruits, gentle citrus and a nice, drying finish. There aren’t any overbearing yeasty notes and no extra stickiness or sweetness, despite the somewhat higher alcohol content for the style. Honestly, this is quite a nice Belgian wit. ogre71 (359) - Utah, USA - JUL 22, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 23, 2015 This is a good wheat beer pours a nice light golden. Smells and taste good easy to drink smooth not hoppy. Would recommend UncleKorm (1321) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAR 10, 2014
