Bottle from yem25 I think. Thanks. The aroma is pretty yeasty with hints of oranges, banana, and spice. Some sweet bread and some sugars too. Pours a golden orange tone with no head really. The flavor is sweet and fruity. Yeast, orange, apples, sugar, pilsner malts. No pepper or bitterness at all, just a mild alcohol warmth in the finish. Sweet, fruity, one dimensional, but not bad. nbutler11 (1267) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2008
Pours a light caramel color from the bomber with an offwhite head. Smells and tastes of red apples, mild yeast, and confectioners sugar. A bit sweet and unbalanced in my opinion. ajm (1072) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 14, 2008
Bottle thanks to nbutler11. A very clear pour which is not the best for the style. Everything is very balanced and very even to the point of having no flourishes. Mild yeast, faint berry, orange blossom. TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Pours light golden and slightly golden with a mostly receding wispy off-white head. Tastes of banana, pear, pineapple. Mouthfeel is full bodied. Not bad, but a bit under-attenuated and boozy. cking (1175) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - OCT 27, 2008
Bomber shared amongst some newly found friends during my initial meeting down at the local Jazz Club. Poured a very cloudy light orange with a thin head and touches of mild lacing. Estery aroma of funky banana, spicy cloves, pepper and fresh yeast. Thick and filling, it’s a warm sipper. Nice flavor that is true to the Tripel style, nothing overdone and a touch tame as long as you take your time. Earthy and sweet with some musty hops and fermented fruits. Decent, not near to top of my list but it was tasty.

Pours a cloudy golden with a fairly thick white head that is constantly replenished by a steady stream of bubbles. Has a nutty bready aroma. Very smooth. Taste is soft for a tripel. Has a very sweet pale malt flavor along with bananas and cloves as well as a bread dough quality. Alcohol warms after the swallow. Quite good. RunDWP (203) - San Jose, California, USA - OCT 24, 2008
22 oz bottle. Pours a hazy orange. Fruity aroma. Flavors of light bready yeast, apricots, and citrus notes, along with a zingy sourness. Alcohol flavors absent. One of the better examples of the style I’ve tried. Hope to have another some day. MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - OCT 6, 2008
Glowing orange body, but the aroma lacks direction. It has a little fruity sweetness, and an almost metallic grassy smell. Flavor comes through a little bitter, not too sweet and a little grassy. Palate is smooth through and through. Not much of a bite to it at all. Very drinkable and and a little earthy (and a tad metallic). glkaiser (1214) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 1, 2008
22oz. Thanks, Bri. Hazy golden. Biscuit malt with spicy yeast. Good amount of fruit and moderate sweetness. Not bad. Optigon (562) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - SEP 22, 2008
Pours orange with a fine, white head. Woo! Really spicy and sweet. Mild sour aftertaste. Aroma is sweet and almost nutty in a strange way to me. Very good and spicy.
