COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - JAN 18, 2014
12oz bottle to DFH IPA glass A - Pours a hazy amber/honey color with 1 finger of frothy off-white head. Good but average lacing. S - Earthy grains, herbal hops, bright pineapple, apple, woody, dirty grapefruit, spicy phenols come out more as it warms. T - Grapefruit jumps right out, sweet pale malt, pineapple, white pepper, pears, a second wave of grassy/herbal hops flood in with notes of wood. Semi chalky bitterness runs into the finish. Finishes dry and earthy with white pepper and grapefruit/tropical notes. M - Medium body, lush feel, moderate soft carbonation, dry earthy finish. Interesting beer for sure. Nice bitterness and very complex. The dirty citrus/tropical fruit works well against the sweet pale malt. I bought a sixer of this and they got better and better. This is one to seek out. Serving type: bottle 11-03-2013

RyanK (220) - Rhode Island, USA - JAN 17, 2014
Purchased at Charlestown Wine & Spirits RI, 12oz bottle. Pours a cloud amber with a small white head quick to dissipate. Smells strongly of Belgian yeast with some fruit flavors like orange and grapefruit mixed it. Taste strongly of the Belgian yeast but the hops and wheat malt actually mix quite well and all together do a good job of covering the strong Abv. Light bodied with plenty of carbonation. Belgian flavor stands out which I’m not a fan of but this is certainly a good beer.

On tap at mad mex. Pours a golden yellow color with a slight white head. Aromas of peach and mango and hefe yeast. Taste is on the bitter side but fairly balanced. Medium thick body and medium high carb.

Mep3222 (542) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Hoppy fruity yeasty aroma. Has the Belgian yeast aroma smells. Almost a mix of ipa and saison by aroma. Some fruity yeasty flavors as well but with a bitter hoppy finish. A bit different, but enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aromas of fruity yeast, citrus and wheat. Flavors are much the same, citrus hops up front with caramel malt holding down the base of the beer. Some moderate bitterness

ARH (526) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 28, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2014 12oz bottle poured into a stemmed tulip glass. Smells doughy, but sweet - oatmeal raisin cookies were the first thing that came to mind. Orange peel is the dominant scent, but some grape (maybe I just had cookies stuck in my head?), as well as grassy, floral notes. It pours a hazy pale amber (on the yellow side of amber) with a thick white head that could easily be scooped out with a spoon. A medium heavy dose of bitter and sour hit the tongue initially with a healthy sweetness washing over the mouth. Some more of the yeast aroma comes out at first sipping as well as a whiff of alcohol. The taste is predominantly hops, but there is some sweetness to it in the form of grapes and/or sour cherries (maybe both?). There’s a rye-spiciness too, which very well could just be the hops. The relatively dry, medium body beer doesn’t technically finish clean, but it’s surprisingly refreshing (almost minty) considering how strong the initial flavors come on. There’s a prevalent rye flavor in the finish. A nice puffy, cloud-like lacing remains on the empty glass.

Gold color out of the bottle with a foamy white head. Nice aroma of orange peel, spice and hop resin. Bitter orange peel, spice, bready yeast and tropical fruit hops. Interesting combination of flavors...

SDalkoholic (2173) - Linda Vista, California, USA - DEC 18, 2013
Bottle from Fresh N Easy: Aroma is fruity and floral with a spicy whiff of hops while the spice is then multiplied by additional spicing from Belgian yeast. Liquid was a golden elixir with a soapy textured head. The drink has a delicate spicing that is started by the Belgian yeast but pairs nicely with the carbonation levels. Decent beer that plays well off the Belgian influence and still taste heavy bodied as do most Lagunitas beers.
