Bottle: Poured a deep golden/amber color ale with a large foamy head with limited retention and some light lacing. Aroma of sour notes with light acidic edge and some dry Brett notes. Taste is also dominated by sour and tart notes with an acidic edge with some lactic sour notes and a dry Brett finish. The vinous and/or hoppy notes are not easily identifiable. Body is light with good carbonation. Decent but really doesn’t stand out from the pack of new sour ales that are coming out.

Thanks to Jwiss22 for sharing this brew. Bomber # 459 pours a clear copper color in a short pils style glass. Some rising suds produce a yellowish tan head that retains decently. Some spotty and stringy fingers of lace stick to the glass.

The aromatics are medicinal and a bit carbonic. Some minor tropical notes emerge as it warms up that are slightly rindy to pitty like fruit. A little bit of sulfur and mineral aspect starts to take over as it warms up beyond ideal temperature.

The taste is herbal and rindy. A faint amount of zesty bitterness lays overtop mineral notes that are carbonic. A mild inclusion of tropical fruits and pith emerge as the brew warms up. It has a sudsy to soapy aftertaste which isnt that enjoyable.

This is a light bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. Unfortunately, minerals and carbonic character tasting of bad city water lead the profile. The rest of this brews character is reminescent of a poorly made belgian blonde. I dont know what FFF was going for when they brewed this. While I appreciate the chance to try this, I certainly have no interest in having it again.
