3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle. Clear golden with a thick dense white head produced from a hard pour. Aroma of candi sugar, earthy yeast, wheat, hay and light apple. The flavor is pretty sweet but has some light sourness and bitterness. You can taste the house yeast as well as the Westmalle yeast in the beer. Medium body with average carbonation and a creamy, slick mouth feel.Wish the Westmalle yeast was a bit more noticeable for the flavor and to dry it out a bit more. This is a pretty good beer though, especially for the price.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a golden color with lots of tiny bubbles. A big fluffy white head sits atom the beer and of course leaves good lace. The aroma is remarkably fruit forward, with lots of melon and citrus with a mild mango character. There is a pungent floral character as well making it a pretty appetizing looking and smelling beer. The flavor is dry with lots of tropical fruity hops and a big fruity yeast character. There is a nice mild breadiness with some caraway seed and plenty of bitterness. This is pretty well balanced between fruity and bitter.
Tasty, but really not very "wild".

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
clear, light golden amber color. Nice white head. Sweet and pungeant yeasty aroma. Sweet wheat flavor with a healthy dose of hops. A belgian pale wit? something of the sort. Strong palate. fizzy texture. A managerie of flavors and sensations almost too weird to comprehend.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I have had a little sumpin sumpin ale, and to be honest I was expecting a little more from this beer because of how much I liked it, I think the type of yeast they used takes away from the hoppy taste of the beer to some degree. I like it, just not as much as the original sumpiní sumpiní.

Pours a golden color with a frothy white head. Aroma is malt, coriander, wild yeasts, citrus, hops. Flavor is citrus, oily hops, nice wild yeasts, grass, pepper, wheat, coriander. A steal at $4.29 a bomber.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Why does the description say 7.8%.. my bottle says 8.85. Anyway.. Clear gold pour, white head. Sweet malts, fruit, grain, hops, citrus. I know this is vague description, but this is a vague beer, decent, but overall very run of the mill.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This pours with a clear golden color and a nice white head. The flavor starts out with some piney/citrus notes but finishes with a hint of sweetness. Very tasty!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours clear gold with a small white head. Aroma of big hops with notes of grapefruit, pine, lemon, and it just seems vibrant and fresh. SLIGHT bit of earth hay and grass. Flavor of grass, hay, pine, pepper, and grapefruit. Again, the yeast presence only changes things slightly. Finishes a little yeastier with a bit of earth and cheese along with with pine, and old citrus. Moderate bitterness. Medium bodied and well-carbonated, but the texture of the beer could have more "umph." Whatís the point of using Westmalle yeast if youíre gonna filter it all out? Still a decent beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the Federal in Durham. Pours light, bright amber with medium beige head. Side by side with Two Hearted, they didnít look much different. Nose is generous citrus (grapefruit and orange) and an all-around fruitiness, as well as some nice Belgian yeast, but not in a dominant way. Really well balanced, allowing the fruity hop flavors to shine through. Slick, light palate. Alcohol well hidden. I could have had many more of these.
