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.

Drake (8539) - 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.

hopscotch (9158) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 27, 2010
Bottle… Mostly clear, golden ale with a mid-sized, wispy, white head. Fantastic retention. The aroma is herbal and fruity – mango, lavender and mild clove – lightly acidic and funky. Full-bodied and mildly creamy with moderate carbonation. Bittersweet, herbal, spicy flavor. Leans bitter, but presents nice tropical fruit sweetness to compliment the citrus pith and rind bitterness. Lengthy bitter finish.

JK (4433) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - OCT 26, 2010
It really is not a wild ale. Yeast in the flavor and aroma. Gold color. A little sweet with grain and sugar. On the light side for the style, not much here.

mensch (249) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - OCT 26, 2010
More IPA-a double really- than belgian. Big floral and citrus aroma, with hints of candied fruit. Strong bitter hop flavors and fruity malts play with the added funky complexity of the westmalle yeast. Delicious.

Hopper (827) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - OCT 26, 2010
$4.29/ 22 oz. brown bottle. A very clear golden beer with a nice white head that starts to slowly fade. This beer has clarity. The aroma has that nice citrusy tropical fruit scent but the yeast is also vying for position with that Belgian yeast scent that also contributes some floral aspects. This smells clean. The taste is a little dominant with the yeast character with the Lil Sumpin malt/wheat base providing a good foundation for the loads of hops. The yeast gives some floralness(new made up word) and mixed in with the loads of hops makes this beer more dry than the original. Classify under "Belgian IPA"

BarZigKin (511) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - OCT 25, 2010
22oz bomber from Spec’s in Austin. Pours a light orange/amber body with a bubbly, sticky head that left nice lacing. Aromas of orange zest, fruity, yeasty, some grassy hops and lightly sweet. Flavors of floral/citrus hops, yeasty, medium carmel sweet, some spicyness and a bit of an odd fruity flavor(?). Another very good (not quite great) beer from Lagunitas.

jrmac (330) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 24, 2010
pours a nice cloudy gold color. Nose is tight revealing only a hint of hops. Flavors of yeast and hops. Also a nice malt backbone. Great beer.

(22oz bottle thanks to Nellie) clear yellow, medium bright with a film of white bubbles. Nose of weed, floral, earthy, peppercorns and peaches. Taste of peppercorns, perfumey, oranges, smooth body that’s quite oily. Nice Belgian!
