Beer pours like apple juice with a minimal cream head. Aroma is apple pie; spiced apples and cinnamon. Taste is tart, green apples and pears with a decent spicy backbone of cinnamon, coriander and nutmeg. Hops are always lurking in the background. Love to buy local in Indiana and this is a decent try. Go fort it if its available.
22 oz bomber pours amber with a off white head. Aroma of malts, citrus and floral. Taste is grass, grains and citrus. seymour (2120) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - MAY 11, 2015
Tasted on draft at 2015 St. Louis Microfest in a willi becher glass. It poured a hazy pale golden colour with white foam. Simply grainbill, crisp and husky but otherwise lacking much character, emphasis on the light earthy hops, subtle peppery yeast phenols. Light body, strong carbonation, nice dry aftertaste. Good stuff. UDBeernut (2883) - Saint Johns, Florida, USA - MAY 8, 2015
Golden pour passes some light, capped by a white head that leaves a small lacing trail. Nose has some citrus. Taste is light bitterness, grass, flowers, citrus rind. Light body. DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Poured into a snifter.
3.5 A: Murky dark yellow brown color. One finger of frothy off-white head. Retention is about average and a short ring of lacing is left.
3.75 S: Hops and Belgian yeast spiciness rule the nose. Clove foremost with pepper underneath. Hops are a combination of herbal, earthy, and floral in that order. Sugary with yeasty breadiness. Pretty good.
3.25 T: Moderate bitterness. Again plenty of clove and pepper spiciness. Hops are again herbal, earthy, and floral. Yeasty breadiness. Not a whole lot else from the base. The flavors mesh a lot better in the nose. Despite a moderate bitterness, it comes off as unbalanced.
3.25 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Neither creamy, nor spritzy and it needs one of these.
3.00 D: It’s decent but the taste and the mouthfeel as pretty weak.

I was in the mood for hops today, Learys Fine Wine in Newburyport, MA has me covered! Good price on this 22 oz. bottle. Dirty orange/ blonde color with fizzy, slow dying head. Aroma shows yeast, grain and very mild floral hops. So this wasn’t as hoppy as I was hoping for but still decent.

The flavor is more along the line of a Belgian blonde/ single that is an IPA. Pale malts and grain as the base with yeast character in the center. The hops are mild in the form of grass. Not fair to try this after multiple IPA’ and DIPA’s. Guess it’s the style guidelines getting blurry. I still enjoyed it.
Pours deep gold into a tulip. White head with medium retention recedes leaving sheet lacing. Citrus and mild funk aromas. Dry with caramel and bread upfront turning to mildly sour earth and resin in the medium length finish. BrianPetrie (8) - Pelham, USA - AUG 7, 2014 does not count
What an amazing beer. From beginning to end a terrific representation of the style. Drinks like a saisson, but is clearly a style unto its own. jjgmd (2248) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Pours a burnt orange color with a nice white head. Nose is resin and pine with some light citrus. Taste is very floral and herbal than your typical IPA. Finishes on the same tasting notes with a moderately long ending. Quaff Score 7 / 10 zgaier (1962) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Bomber. Pours a hazy dark orange with an off white head and aroma of hops, malt, and herbal notes. Taste is bitter, of hops, floral, grass and herbal notes with malt, caramel, and bready notes leading to a bitter, dry finish mp_lane (101) - Indiana, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Aroma is mild Belgian spice. Hazy golden color, small white head. Has that Belgian taste that is getting popular.Not bitter, slightly sweet. Medium body. Liked this!
