Bomber. Pale, hazy, yellow with a clean white, foamy head that lasts on the sides and laces. Aromas of citrus, spice, light pine and an earthy must to it. Flavor is sweet citrus,spice, light pine, light yeast and some underlying earthy notes. Light bodied, dry finish.

Pour is a hazy bright yellow with a large white head. Aroma is fresh pineapple juice with some green hops. Flavor is dry pils malt to start then comes some lemon, funk and bitterness. Finish has more of a citrus bitterness. Very drinkable and refreshing.

TBone (17062) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 21, 2013
[email protected] Murky yellow color, small white head, lace. Grassy, a funky bretta aroma. Medium-bodied. Citric, bretta, lingering grapefruity flavor. Nice sour ale.

Bottle from Erzbierschof, Bern
Hazy blond color with medium sized head. Delicate aroma, there is some funkiness, light citrus fruits. Carbonated and smooth mouthfeel, very dry, with spicy character, also some light funky trait; reasonably bitter.

bluevegie (3073) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 6, 2013
Large but short lasting white head on a solid cloudy straw body. Yeast on the nose not huge on the hops in the taste but very drinkable

larsga (7470) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 1, 2013
Attempts to gush, but waiting a bit solves that. Medium white head. Yellow body made hazy by visible small particles. Earthy oily fruity aroma with herbal notes. Dryish earthy oily resiny taste with mealy herbal fruity notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, slightly fizzy mouthfeel. Dryish resiny oily earthy aftertaste with dusty minty herbal notes. Nice, drinkable, full of character, and rather unusual. Its realy the hoppy, minty aroma on top of a mealy, earthy farmhouse base that defines the beer. (0.65l bottle, from Kihoskh, Copenhagen.)

Hansen (8545) - Assentoft, DENMARK - OCT 30, 2013
A bit odd. Orange coloured and unclear. Has a white head, medium duration. Hoppy aroma with fruity notes too. FLavor starts medium sweet, acid too. Moderate bitter finish.

MartinT (9729) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 24, 2013
My Bottom Line :
This very dry and effervescent Belgian-style Ale showcases doughy yeast and earthy hops with their herbal angles.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A sheet of foam covers the misty amber-hued golden.
-The earthy hop bitterness is prominent.
-There is lots of yeast in the bottle. Had to be careful upon pouring the second glass.
-Mild orange fruitiness appears midway.
-Although lots of fun, this is not a very memorable brew.
