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.

A: The pour is a nice golden orange color with a surprisingly small white head and some minimal lacing. S: A big burst of citrus hop aroma up front gives this one much more of an IPA feel. With a little warming up, some of the yeast esters come through and I pick up some bubblegum, pepper, and spicy yeast esters. That said, the hops are still dominant. T: Fairly heavy on the spices (yeast contributions) with some great fruitiness. Tangerine and grapefruit are the biggest fruit notes I get, and the bitterness is there, but does not overwhelm the beer. M: The body is medium with a carbonation that borders medium and high--not over-carbonated, however. D: I wasn’t exactly sure what the "wild" character of this beer was upon drinking it, though some research has shown this beer did spend some time with Brett. At this point, it’s like most of the other good Lagunitas beers: hoppy.

Hair6a11 (1360) - Illinois, USA - OCT 8, 2010
On tap at the Local Option: Pours a clear golden with modest white head. Aroma is at first distinctly Lagunitas hops with a hint of mineral sweetness. Taste is initially quite bitter and mouthfeel is a little chewy. Flavors are a little belgian yeast, Lagunitas hops, caramel malt sweetness with a touch of earthiness. Nice brew.

smith4498 (3025) - Miami, Florida, USA - OCT 8, 2010
Pours slightly hazy golden orange color with off white head. Grapefruit rind aroma. Sweet and slightly tart grapefruit flavor with some doughy tastes. Medium body with average carbonation. Another solid offering from Lagunitas.

StefanSD (2138) - Lakeside, California, USA - OCT 8, 2010
650 ml bottle from Bev4less. Pours a translucent brass color with a small white head that soon fades to a fine ring. The aroma is medium in strength with bready yeasts, malts, mild nutty hops and sour white fruits. The flavor is slightly sour with grapes, grains, rye and hazelnuts. The palate is full and malty with prickly carbonation. The finish is long and dry with lingering biter hops. Overall: A very wicked little concoction, well done lagunitas.

jazz88 (2556) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 7, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2012 Bottle. A dark golden color with an off white head. A sweet, floral and candied aroma and flavor. A nice warm finish.

msante79 (2210) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - OCT 7, 2010
On tap at Beachwood BBQ. Pours clear copper with white head. Aromas of citrus hops, banana, and bready malts. Flavor of banana, bready malts, muted citrus, and good amount of hop bitterness. Basically a belgain IPA. Was hoping for something tart and sour, but did not get it.

djd07 (3646) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 7, 2010
On tap at flying saucer. Pours a clear orange gold with a small frothy white head that leaves sticky white lacing. The aroma is a sweet fruit and cascade hops. Medium mouthfeel with a dry hop and yeast. Easy to drink a very good belgian ale from Lagunitas.

Pour is clear orangey amber with a thin sticky tan head...smell is grapefruit and citrus hops...some lightly sweet floral notes too...taste is nicely hoppy like expected...then a nice estery and yeasty Belgian flavor..I don’t quite know if this works or not but it is really interesting...

Deceiving pale color packs a big hoppy smackdown. Small headed, bubbles rising in perfect vertical order, it looks like a nice cognac. Sweet and bitter at the same time. Clove, hops, grapefruit, peach flavors. Delicious combination. Sour on the afterbite. Delightful brew! Love what Lagunitas has been putting out.
