Bottle: Poured a deep golden color ale with a small foamy head with average retention and light lacing. Aroma of light residual sugar notes with some caramelized malt notes. Taste is also dominated by dry caramelized malt with some light grainy notes and a dry finish. Body is slighter thinner then average with average carbonation and no apparent alcohol. I thought this was not as warm as most wheat wine I’ve taste before and probably a tad more dry then I was expecting.

Bomber dated as 2011 by bottle store. Marked down so easier to buy. $5.99 at Stateline liquors.
Dark brown , opaque with dark orange at edges. Dense ring of lace after small offwhite head subsides with impressive lacing.
Smells of rich malts with something I can't identify in background/ grapes, plums or something. Smells tasty definitely and sweet malts are there for sure. Some boozy notes but not overpowering for such a big abv. Not getting the citrus -lemon character of wheat.
Taste follows the huge malt presence with sweet malts of bready , toasty notes with some sharp background of (wheat ?) Malt forward with nice balancing aspects. Hops presence is subdued but plays into finish and keeps the sweetness from being cloying.
M- med. to heavy as expected. Oily , really coats the tongue.
Overall I really enjoyed this wheatwine better than many barley wines I've tried. Don't know if the age on this one impacted this for me. I want to try a newer bottle to see.

Hazy golden body with a flat appearance. Ill give it the benefit of the doubt though because I think this howler was approaching the end of its drinkable shelf life.

Honey and herbal tea like scent. Sweet oranges and a strange vegetal smell.

The orange is more noticeable in the taste. There's a honey-like medicinal taste like a cough drop. The sweet fruit and medicinal booze just don't mix well.

Thick and syrupy body, very sweet coating left on my tongue. It is flat, but again I'll give the benefit of the doubt.

I just didn't enjoy the taste or numbing mouthfeel of this one.
