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.

WISEGUY572 (1372) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2010
Really nice hybrid, using American hops, Belgian yeast, and malted wheat. Great head, hazy gold, good lacing. Nose of sweet fruit ... classic wheat nose, but with strong American hopping. Taste of sweet fruit, bready yeast, piny grapefruit PNW hopping. Nice strong Belgian wheat with American hopping.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - OCT 29, 2010
22oz bottle. Bronzed gold with a white head. Orange, peach, strawberry, papaya skin, and lots of toasty malt in the aroma. Big hops at first and then the yeast really takes over. The flavor is on the sweet side with lots of fruitiness and a medium hop bitterness. Nice soft wheat in the flavor and some toasty malt. Medium full body and soft carbonation. Could be dryer but pretty nice.

Ratman197 (9454) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - OCT 29, 2010
Bomber poured a clear gold with a lasting off white head. Aromas of yeast, biscuit, pear, tropical fruit, orange zest, pine and light earthiness. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of biscuit, pear, tropical fruit, pine, citrus and light earthiness with a smooth dry lingering moderatly bitter fruity finish.

BelgianBeerGal (3102) - Panama City, Florida, USA - OCT 29, 2010
Draught at KC F.S. Not really getting the "wild" aspect here. Don’t get me wrong it was tasty but I was expecting a little more of a wild ale (a little funky, a little sour, a little brett...something like that). This was a Belgian IPA similar to Houblon Chouffee. Well done though.

jcwattsrugger (11071) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - OCT 29, 2010
on tap @BT-pours a retaining thin white head with gold color. Aroma is pine/grapefruit rind/pineapple, some light/medium malt, yeast.. Taste follows. 4.2 *101026-Lagunitas Little Sumpin Wild–22oz bottle-not as enjoyable as on tap 3.5

jhumphries69 (1034) - Tyrone, Georgia, USA - OCT 29, 2010
22oz bomber. Fantastic sweet malts with mesmerizing juicy, resiny, citrusy, piney hops. Sweet doughy, yeasty, spicy finish. Very perfumy, floral fragrance. Fantastic Belgian IPA.

emacgee (3958) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - OCT 29, 2010
Shared by the turd, tanks breh. Pours a clean soft yellow with a finger of white head sticking to the glass. Nose is interesting, almost appealing, at first. Very citrusy and fruity, same in the flavor. The problem is the yeast character makes this smell and taste like a bowl of overripe fruit, nay, bad fruit. Palate also takes on an unpleasant astringency.

TURDFERGUSON (3930) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 29, 2010
Bottle. Glowing orange with a thick white head. Nose is juicy and spicy hops--tangerine, grapefruit, clementines but also some tobacco, pepper, and yeasty esters. Flavor has its positives, and tastes really juicy at times, but its also a little muddled, and the Westmalle yeast gives it a strange finish. I’ve never been a huge fan of altered (oak/bourbon-aged, fruit added, different yeast) ipa’s. Some of the sips were better than others, but I doubt I’d buy this again.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - OCT 28, 2010
22 ounce bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA, opened 9/28/10. Pours a hazy golden-peach color with a thin creamy white head. Good head retention and fair lacing. Aroma of spicy, peppery hops, fruity notes including peach, fig, citrus and white grapes. The taste is spicy, peppery and citrus hop notes with a fruity finish, including lime, figs and peaches. Medium bodied. Nice beer.
