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.

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.
