Grabbed a bomber on clearance for $2.99 at Total Wine...

Unfiltered and hazy light orange hue, fizzy and dainty white head with lousy retention and no stickiness. Eh...

Nose is faint, but distinct in what it offers: plenty of orange peel, coriander and honey, mildly floral.

Tastes as you would expect from the nose, malty sweet with absolutely no hop bitterness. Beer is as advertised, and quite good.

Amply carbonated, slick mouthfeel with a relatively light body. About as easy drinking as it can possibly get.

Nice summer beer, definitely will be sure to check out a fresher bottle next summer, cheers!

Bomber with Pizza in Dekalb at Lord Stanleys Annex. I figure, $5 for a rogue bomber at a bar? yes please. lord Stanley is odd.
This one poured a light and clear yellow color, carbination is visual and signs of crispness. should be refreshing with our odd pizza with saurkraut/mushrooms on it.
Aroma is light but shows some citrusy hops that really give this beer a flavor profile that is clean and crisp andwhile the wheat aspects dont come through in a super prominant way makes this bomber one that is quite enjoyable to eat some food with.
Clean, refreshing, everything you'd expect me to say about a light flavorless beer in the mouthfeel, but this one has flavors worth pairing with food.

This is a good beer in the right conditions.
Get it for dinner, not for dessert.

Poured from the undated bomber into my Duvel tulip. Cloudy orange tan hue with an awesome massive fluffy head. Quickly dissipated to a small layer. Nice wheat nose but nothing special. No orange or honey for me. Taste was basic medium wheat with little to no orange or honey. Sorry. Mouthfeel was nice and easy drinking but for me was just an average wheat. Would have again for basic refreshment.

Poured from a capped bomber bottle. The numbers don't really reflect the beer. It is a decent beer, just a little weak.

A - straw color with a thin, nearly nonexistent, head that fades to nothing and leaves little lacing. very cloudy. judging from other reviews the bottle was probably a bottle passing its prime.

S - little if any aroma, sweet honey but no real orange or wheat aroma

T - honey with a bit of orange nose. however the flavor is very subdued. It is clean, crisp, and pleasant, but there is not enough flavor. No aftertaste.

O - it is refreshing but it definitely leaves you wanting more flavor more than wanting another beer.
