COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Another Big Sister of the Little Sumpiní Sumpiní AleÖ. Loads of Malted Wheat for a Curious Malt Foundation and a Light Color, But Our Belgian Yeast Leaves a Huge Flavor and Complexishness.

Boulevard tulip glass draft at The Belfry in Kansas City, Missouri. The pour is mostly clear golden with no head, this was a VERY full pour. The aroma is soft hay, honey hop sweetness and a decent blast of floral Belgian yeast. The taste is mostly about the floral spicy Belgian yeast, though honey sweetness breaks through significantly as the beer warms. The palate is medium bodied, soft carbonation and a sticky sweet aftertaste. Didnít totally work for me.

Caytinator (899) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 16, 2014
12oz bottle. Nice looking standard golden pour with a stable head and medium lacing. Tangy, strong aroma, very appetizing, I love the esters the belgian yeast gives it. Itís not a straight copy of a belgian style, itís got a hoppy backbone. Really enjoyed this one!

WheatKing (1279) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 14, 2014
Small bottle. Hazy deep gold, big white head. Nose is pine, bubblegum, flavour also has orange, caramel, as well as smooth alcohol. I dunno about these Belgian IPAs, theyíre good when light and dry, the heavy sweet ones with pine resin always seem like nothing more than an "interesting" experiment to me. Can only blame myself for continuing to buy them.

Beerdedone (2584) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a lasting off-white head.Aroma of citrus, yeast, pine and fruit. Flavor was quite sweet and bitter with pine, fruit, caramel, yeast, grapefruit, mild spices and had a long bitter finish.

12 oz bottle into a wine glass. A: Pours a golden color. The head has the typical frothiness of a Belgian-style beer, but perhaps isnít as towering, at only a finger high. Head color is eggshell. Spotty patches of lacing are left down the glass. S: Pleasantly spicy, with the sweet hops typical of Lagunitas. Thereís also a decent black pepper note which serves to balance the former out. Buried beneath those two is a faint malt backbone. This really smells like it will be good. T: Upon hitting the palate, it tastes exactly like LSS - imagine that. It starts with a combination of wheat malt and sweet-yet-piny hoppiness. But that finish is where it really takes off. The spiciness on the back end gives this a passing resemblance to a good tripel, albeit one thatís well hopped. Basically, itís delicious throughout. M: One gripe, itís a bit too heavy. Because of that and carbonation thatís only ímediumí, the sweetness isnít fully cleansed off of the finish quite as much as Iíd like. Still, thatís not a problem in the least. Thereís no hint of the 8.8% anywhere; this feels like itís about 5%. O: Lagunitas is just like Motorhead - they tend to always taste/sound the same from beer to beer/album to album, but when that taste/sound is so damn good, it really doesnít matter. Yes, this is just another hoppy Lagunitas beer. And I donít care, because this is really damn good.

Bottle from Lazy Dog. Pours a translucent gold with a very thin layer of cream colored head. Aroma of yeast and slight spices. Taste of nutmeg and yeast with ample carbonation.

cavnar (12) - Pace, Florida, USA - FEB 12, 2014
A very well blended ale, not bitter even though there are 71 IBUs. Very fruity and the Belgian yeast I think are understated. A very refreshing beer.
