Thanks to thirdeye11 for sharing this bottle.

The beer pours an amber color with a white head. The aroma is full of herbs with a little citrus. I get a lot of sage and juniper, as well as some grapefruit and lemon notes. The flavor is extremely dry and extremely herbaceous. I get a lot of sage and rosemary, wit a little bit of toffee malt and some lemons. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

22oz. Bomber
$5.00 Ea.

Pours a nice clean/clear golden color, nice carbonation, nice little fizzy off-white head, with some sticky lacing to follow. The nose is malty, with some cinnamon, manuka tips, nutmeg, and caramel. The taste is slightly sweet, malty, nice touch of spices, the manuka kinda brings out the cinnamon/nutmeg to another level, with some caramel. Medium body. Drinkable, a nice holiday brew.

Poured from a 22 oz. bomber to a pair of pint glasses.

Appearance: Burnt copper/bronze with a large amount of carbonation and a thick white head.

Smell: Perfumy and peppery spicy, a little reminiscent of potpourri

Flavor: Sweet and savory taste. Didn't have a huge hop backbone to support the malt, but it didn't require one as badly because of the medium body. It had a distinct flower nectar taste which I am guessing comes from the manuka

MF: A little sweet and flowery for my taste, and I'm not even sure how to compare it to the style as this one is out there. Way to go Squatters though for getting outside the box!

A: A very pretty copper color. Nice carbonation with a quickly dissipating head.

S: The Aroma was very pleasant and floral, with a substantial amount of malt. I sniffed this beer a good many times before the first sip.

T: If I didn't know better I would guess this was Heather with a touch of citrus or Tea Tree. There is a bit of a herbal after taste that comes off minty or something.

M: Medium with a lot of carbonation.

D: It was a bit sweet and floral, but I have never disliked anything based off of those two elements alone. I enjoyed this beer and will happily drink the other one or two I picked up.
