Pours a golden amber with one finger thin off white head. Smells fruity like bananas, clove, bready yeast. Tastes of fruity bananas, dough a little bitterness and some citrusy notes. Palate thin but smooth feeling. its alright

Deep gold, clear, off-white head. Aroma is floral, fruity, with slight spice. Flavor of pilsner malt, moderate spicy phenols, and more floral/perfumy notes with a little citrus.

From bottle. Fairly weak and bland on first taste. Opened up nicely, though, with banana, light floral notes, and slight yeasty finish.

Pleasant beer. Bright-gold hue; quickly fading head. Soft and fluffy texture. Cakey and doughy malt flavors; faint earthiness. Gentle aromas of herbs, perfumes and flowers. Banana and bubblegum in the back. Light, peppery bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Made in Oregon. Pours hazy amber gold with a foamy white head. Aroma is pretty floral. Med minus body. Flavor is hard to describe. It’s floral. I get some rose. It’s also Belgian yeast/spice. Wasn’t getting banana ester, but now I do. I’m beginning to think one could find anything in this. I’m beginning to think the rose wasn’t. Not so flavorful as an earthy Belgian, but very tasty in a rather light way. Finishing sort of citrously bitter. Good ale.

Banana-like and floral aroma. Nice yeast character in flavor; spicy, fruity. Light caramel and biscuit--enough to give it some balance. Finishes sweeter... A little too much, probably.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. Pours a golden amber. Restricted Belgian yeast character is the first thing I notice. Sweet malts, grainy, spicy. This whole beer is subtle. There is some astringency/tannins possibly from the rose hops. This is a standard Pyramid brewed beer. Meh.

Bottle. Golden colour with thick lasting white head. Aroma is caramel and fruit. Flavour has a little spice, a little citrus and some malt. Rather weak and bland finish

Brand new Belgian Style Ale with Rose Hips added in the batch. I think Rose Hips are a sleep aid. Hmmm, maybe I should not be drinking this one so early on.

This stuff’s pretty good. Purchased at the Red Apple in Eugene Oregon in a 22oz bottle for $1.99. For the price this is a steal because it’s comparable to some of the other American Belgian style ales and in some aspects exceeds many of them in taste. The rose hip flavor might throw a few people off but it’s actually quite pleasant. Tastes of banana bread and sour apple. Great price to value ratio.
