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.

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

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 (4585) - 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 (4043) - 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 (11499) - 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.

944play (398) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - OCT 27, 2010
22oz in shaker. Clear deep gold with foamy off-white head. Woody, citrus, peppery aroma. Sweet, spicy, earthy, bitter, slightly mushroomy flavor. Medium body and coating, resinous finish.

hopscotch (10557) - 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 (5632) - 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 (289) - 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"
