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.

CampesinoTino (752) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 23, 2010
Bomber. Pours a sparkling peach and gold color with a thin layer of dense head. The aroma is tangerine nectar, resiny hops and cannabis oil. The taste starts with a distinctly Belgian style doughy yeast flavor followed by a blend of honey, malt, citrus, pears and earthy hops. It’s full-bodied with moderate carbonation and a dry, boozy finish. The overall flavor could almost be described as a Belgian Double IPA. The alcohol level is definitely noticeable but it’s not too aggressive. Different but equal to A Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’ Ale.

Boliv (1148) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 23, 2010
Bomber. Pours slightly hazy golden amber with a medium orangey beige head that leaves a bit of lacing. Aromas of funky papaya, guava, and sugar. Flavor is spicy floral hops with sweet tropical fruit, mocomoco (a Bolivian fruit), and brown sugar. Warming, thick, and creamy-ish. Very nice stuff.

CanIHave4Beers (3166) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - OCT 22, 2010
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".

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - OCT 22, 2010
Bottle. Aroma has very hoppy citrus notes. Medium amber orange hue with a nice head. Medium heavy sweet and bitter flavor. Good flavor. Good all around.

kidmartinek (3536) - austin, Texas, USA - OCT 22, 2010
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.

22oz bottle 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!

JohnnyJ (4257) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 21, 2010
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.

thicksuds (408) - Massachusetts, USA - OCT 22, 2010
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 sumpin’ sumpin’.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - OCT 23, 2010
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.
