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.

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’.

Rusty (1537) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - OCT 21, 2010
Pours a golden color with a frothy white head. Aroma is malt, coriander, wild yeasts, citrus, hops. Flavor is citrus, oily hops, nice wild yeasts, grass, pepper, wheat, coriander. A steal at $4.29 a bomber.

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.

JohnC (3004) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - OCT 21, 2010
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!

RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - OCT 20, 2010
Bottle. Pours clear gold with a small white head. Aroma of big hops with notes of grapefruit, pine, lemon, and it just seems vibrant and fresh. SLIGHT bit of earth hay and grass. Flavor of grass, hay, pine, pepper, and grapefruit. Again, the yeast presence only changes things slightly. Finishes a little yeastier with a bit of earth and cheese along with with pine, and old citrus. Moderate bitterness. Medium bodied and well-carbonated, but the texture of the beer could have more "umph." What’s the point of using Westmalle yeast if you’re gonna filter it all out? Still a decent beer.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 20, 2010
On tap at the Federal in Durham. Pours light, bright amber with medium beige head. Side by side with Two Hearted, they didn’t look much different. Nose is generous citrus (grapefruit and orange) and an all-around fruitiness, as well as some nice Belgian yeast, but not in a dominant way. Really well balanced, allowing the fruity hop flavors to shine through. Slick, light palate. Alcohol well hidden. I could have had many more of these.

mixmasterob (889) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 20, 2010
Bomber. Poured clear and golden with a nice fluffy white head, good retention, very lacy. Aroma was full of fruity and floral hops, some citrus and a bit of heat. Flavors were nice and hoppy up front with with some fruity yeast peeking in there too. Super dry finish with a mild lingering bitterness. I am guessing they used something close to WLP530, it seemed to me that this stuff ferments somewhat clean. Nothing overpowering like some Belgian strains. This stuff was quite hop forward, with a nice sweet character. Excellent.

tastebud (8) - Verona, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 20, 2010 does not count
Pours a slightly cloudy honey gold with light, frothy head. Aroma is of citrus floral hops and tropical fruit...great nose! It has a medium body, slightly tangy and citrusy tropical fruit. A wee bit of leather on the long finish. Dollar for dollar, one of the best beers out there I’ve tried in a while!

italianjohn (2397) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 20, 2010
Clear golden copper pour creamy white head with decent lacing left on the glass .... aroma of mostly citrusy hops and light fruity yeast ... taste of mostly sticky citrus hops with sweet malts, wheat and a floral fruity yeast as it warmed .... dry bitter hop finish medium bodied ..... a nice hoppy treat loved it

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 20, 2010
Bottle from Friar Tuck in Savoy, IL. Not a bad price on a bomber at $4.50. Pours a nice translucent gold with a white head. Aroma of belgian esters, lemon, and white wine. Lighter side of medium bodied with fine, soft carbonation. Flavor of belgian pale wheat malts, apple, pear, yeast, and clove phenols. Nice non-assertive hop presence. Perhaps a little too much residual sweetness for my tastes. Slightly acidic and dry finish, with more yeast and a hint of lactic sourness. Decent, but not as cohesive or complex as other well known Belgian Strong Ales. It would be nice to have a little more earthiness to the mouth feel, as I a curious as to whether any filtration was done.
