Another Big Sister of the Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’ Ale…. Loads of Malted Wheat for a Curious Malt Foundation and a Light Color, But Our Belgian Yeast Leaves a Huge Flavor and Complexishness.

I’m trying not to encourage ubiquitous beer making of this high strength but this is a good beer. lagunitas reels in the hop overload by balancing it really well with earthy, bready, and slighty sour character. Much more interesting that the usual IPA, this definitely hits as a Belgian Strong. If they could do the same at about 7.3 I’d be raving.

Clear, light gold, tall and persistent head but sparse lace. Exuberant and complex floral nose, the greatest aspect of this beer. Medium body, matching in flavor intensity, silky texture, well rounded mouthfeel, very long palate. Definitly bitter but malty background balances it perfectly. Floral, malty and hoppy. Superb. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Very clear pour with white head. Aroma is spice and clove. Dry, spice on tongue. Yeast is a nice twist. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GenkiGonzo (774) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 1, 2015
Bottle. Pale gold, decent lacing. Distinctive Belgian yeast aroma with something sharp behind it. Flavour has a super nice hop bitterness with the yeast, very nicely balanced.

Not at all what I expected, completely blew my mind. Belgian yeast at the front in the aroma and taste, nice silky body with small soapy head. Nice sharp yeasty finish.

dlovell2 (1367) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Hazy golden color with a foamy white head. Bready yeasty aroma with citrus fruitiness, pine, and herbal spiciness. Light dry malty start with grapefruit and bitter pine finish. The finish has a spicy herbal yeast flavor. I guess with the "wild" I was expecting a more sour ale but I still enjoyed.

blackflag321 (577) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 27, 2014
Bottle poured to snifter. Light copper/gold, big foamy head. "Curious malt foundation" in the commercial deScription is right. Flavor is curious. Sweet and Belgian yeastiness. Lacked any kick strong ABV kick. Nice, but just okay.

Nice. Belgians ain't my thing but I sure do appreciate the Belgian yeast when used the right way and this is a great example. Adds to an already quality ale and compliments it and does not become the dominating feature. Well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours deep yellow with a bit of haze and a big n fluffy white head that laces madly. Aroma is citrus, florals, candy. Taste is caramel malt into piney hops with a bitter finish. A bit thin; very dry. I've had sumpin' better.
