Poured from Bomber into a pint glass at my girlfriends. The best I could do for glassware for this beer.

A-Pours a golden color with a slight white foamy head that recedes fairly quickly.

S-Smells like many other Three Floyds beers without so much of the hops. Fruit. Grass. Vegetable. Not an overwhelming smell.

T-Fruit, citrus, booze, grass. Bread in the finish.

M-Very nice mouth full. This was probably what I enjoyed most about the beer. Nice medium to full body beer.

O-Enjoyed this beer very much. Very nice taste and mouthful. Not much of a smell. Very drinkable at first, but as you get to the end of the bomber the alcohol shows up more. Haven't had too many Belgian Strong Ales, so this is very new to me and I don't have much to compare to.. Liked this beer a lot, and will experiment more with this style.

22 ounce bottle into signature teku glass, 2012 bottling. Pours hazy golden orange color with a fairly dense 1 finger white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of big orange, peach, pear, apple, pineapple, orange zest, floral, grass, candi sugar, honey, clove, light pepper, light bubblegum, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of malt and fruity/spicy notes. Taste of orange, peach, pineapple, pear, apple, floral, clove, honey, candi sugar, light pepper, light bubblegum, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of orange, peach, pineapple, pear, apple, floral, clove, honey, candi sugar, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity of fruity ester flavors; good balance of malt and light spicy esters; with zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a fairly slick and slightly syrupy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a small warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent and unique Belgian strong pale ale. All around nice complexity and balance of fruity flavors with malt and light spicy esters; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.

Thanks to Adam for this bottle. About a month or so from bottling. Poured in to FFF teku glass.

A - Medium orange/yellow in colour. Only very slightly translucent with half a finger of cream coloured head.

S - Big Belgian yeast aroma up front along with cloves, banana, spice, a hint of citrus and some bready malt aromas in the background.

T - Extremely dry throughout. Belgian yeast, clove, banana, peppery spices and a fairly substantial bready malt backbone. A light floral hop profile is present as well.

M - Medium body, creamy. Light to moderate carbonation. Extremely dry.

picked this one up at the brew pub a few weeks ago when i visited. enjoyed from my FFF teku.

a - brew poured a semi-transparent orange with a thin bubbly head that was gone fairly quickly leaving a ring on the surface of the glass and some streaky lacing.

s - cloves, banana, belgian candy. some citricness in the background.

t - nice boozy fruitiness. not classic by any means for the style, but not bad. sweetness is tamed back with fruitiness. the fruitiness is pleasant and enjoyable.

m - a bit hot and fizzy. medium to light bodied.

o - overall, nice fuitiness. not classic for the style, but good none-the-less.

Shared by nuplastikk. Thanks man!

The beer is transparent and appears amber to golden in color, sporting a thick white head. The aroma brings grass, alcohol, sweet, spicy fruits. The flavor brings some biscuits, bread, lemons, grass, alcohol. Moderately sweet with a drier, hoppier finish. Overall, this was pretty good.

It pours a clear golden straw color
Smells like a classic pale ale, nothing remarkable about the smell, though nothing off-putting, either
The taste is phenonmenal. A subtle bite from the pepper here, nice balance
Its mouthfeel is wondrous. There is a pop or kick from the pepper that is enjoyable, but not overwhelming.
Overall, there's a lot going on in this beer. It's got a nice balance and blend of characteristics that just work. A new favorite for now
