look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

22 oz. bomber into a Duvel glass

Pours a clear copper color with a two inch off-white head that falls down to a skim. It has trouble holding a head despite being in the Duvel glass. No lacing is left behind.

Aroma is yeasty with a bit of sweet sugar, toasty malt, and some clovey phenols. A mild fruit character of peach and apple.

Taste is very toasty with mild fruit again, a slight sweetness but it is offset by the clovey phenols that come in towards the end and linger on.

Mouthfeel is pretty light, comes across watery sort of. Nice carbonation though makes it rather soft.

This was a pretty decent beer but nothing amazing. Considering it was $4 for a bomber though, it was a pretty good deal.

look: 2.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.25

22 oz. bottle purchased 3 days ago, and poured into a Belgian snifter.

Appearance: Amber-orange hue with a huge, foamy, durable off-white head. Gobs of lacing, but the bottle foamed over after opening, and again after pouring about 10 oz. of beer.

Aroma: Yeasty with suggestions of banana and bubblegum. These clash with some earthy/spicy hops.

Flavor: more sour than expected which, together with the over-flowing bottle lead me to suspect some contamination. Mildly bitter finish and aftertaste. Plenty of hop kick for style.

Mouthfeel: near medium body; high carbonation.

O: perhaps a bad bottle and worthy of a re-test, but not so bad that I can conclude this with confidence.

3.35/5  rDev -10.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Bomber poured into an imperial pint.

A- Dark orage color with a finger plus of off white, fluffy head. Average retention.

S- Yeast forward nose with no trace of malt or fruit. Smells a little hot.

T- Belgian like yeast hits me right off the bat. Barely any hop to speak of. Slight caramel sweetness present as well.

M- Light and crisp mouthfeel with a dry finish.

O- I thought I would give Flat Earth another try this evening. I find myself feeling the same after each and every ale I try (except the pumpkin ale). Overall, it is a decent Belgian style pale, though I hesitate calling it a pale at all as the hops are not easily detected. Slightly above average in my opinion but a nice change of pace from a daily pale. Cheers.

3.23/5  rDev -14.1%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A- Copper-orange. Slightly hazy. Head is one finger, ever so slightly off white. Retention is mediocre.
S- The smell is earthy sweet, with a bit of biscuit. A bit more hop than most Belgians and not much fruit.
T- The fruityness comes through just a touch here with a peachy opening. There is some caramel as well. Finish is still sweet but a bit of earthyness brings some roundness to it.
M- Medium-full body. Carbonation is low and smooth. A bit too sticky though.
O- I love most Flat Earth beers and most Belgians, but this one was not that special. Middle of the road.
