Clear amber-yellow pour with small off white head. Aroma of yeast, citrus, floral and bread. Taste of yeast, malt, hint of caramel and overpowered by a tart citrus funkiness. Strange beer really but close to be interesting, a little dissapointing. IrishBoy (4254) - Bakersfield, California, USA - APR 5, 2013
Bomber from Imbibe Wine. Nose is sweet and flowery (I loved to eat feijoa (pineapple guava) petals from the big plant at the house where I grew up until it was taken out about 10 years ago) with hints of cloves and candisugar in the background. Clear yellow with orange hints and a medium, lightly lacing offwhite head. Flavor is very sweet and fruity with lots of spice and tartness that shows heavily in the finish. Really different tripel. bleeng (1705) - Houston not near Beersel., Texas, USA - APR 5, 2013
#100 here. Bomber. Collaboration of one of my favorites (DDC) and an old timer in the game (NB). Red copper and clear. Light malts and yeast nose. Weird for a tripel, with a tartness on the start, and some sweetness and sticky yeast on the end. Light and fruity nose. Fairly complex beer. Fun. jcwattsrugger (12559) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - APR 5, 2013
on tap during CBC @Smoke&Barrel-thin offwhite-amber. A-floral, fruit, lt malt, yeasty. T-follows, soft. jefcon (1935) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - APR 4, 2013
Obscure ingredients, for sure. Floral, with green fruit. Some spice from the yeast used here. Not indelicate.

Tap at Barley Johns. Clear light amber pour with a spotty white head. Tart unripened tropical fruit, flowers, and yeast. Zesty. Good carbonation. Finishes dry. nealblind (2022) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - APR 3, 2013
Smells tart and wild fermented like a strawberry someone has kept in their armpit. Salty banana flavors come from the yeast. Sharply acidic and citric like under ripe strawberries. Would be good with cheese. Not very drinkable on it’s own. Nikiel (879) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 3, 2013
Bottle with Carla from Belmont Station. pours gold with minimal white foam. Smells flat, somewhat sweet, with a hint of earthy tartness. Tastes of something akin to orange and a hint of wheat, though there’s not as much complexity or malt flavor here as I would expect from a tripel. jstraw (1967) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 3, 2013
Draft at Jerry’s Collaboration Event. Amber with good, whispy, off-white head / Stylish nose of spun sugar, honey, Belgian yeast, candied citrus / Medium body, some sweet and sour, lean with light malts and modest hopping, but well balanced with lightly sweet finish / Steely, youthful flavors of sour cherry, apple, white grape, banana, spun sugar, oak, light old sweater / A nice, reasonably complex, young Belgian. Beaver (1872) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 2, 2013
22 oz bottle. Pours clear golden orange with a smallish white head that quickly goes to a thin film and leaves a little lacing.
The aroma is peppery tropical fruits with some musty yeast.
The flavor is a little bready malt with lots of sweet tart fruits and some peppery spices. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with low but sharp carbonation.
Overall, I liked the mix of tart fruits and spices. It’s not very much like a tripel though.
