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 at lovin cup. Melon Orange pour with a soapy white head. Aroma is fruit and wheaty and really interesting. Flavor is also really interesting as well and tough to describe. Dry happiness maybe.

TomDecapolis (4394) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - SEP 28, 2010
Tap at Capones. Pours a hazy golden orange with a medium creamy/bubbly off white lacing head. Aroma of spicy and banana notes from the Belgian yeast. Floral and citrusy American hops. Flavor of grapefruit and floral American hops notes. Banana, clove and pineapple. Kind of thin but expected from the wheat base beer.

Bottle. Pours an orangy copper. Aroma of citrus, most significantly orange. Hints of yeast are present as well. Tastes of orange, yeast, hints of malt and an very carbonated mouthfeel.

monkeychugg55 (823) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - SEP 27, 2010
Pours an apricot color with a dense beige head that retains exceptionally well and leaves dense layers of lacing. The aroma is very strong Amarillo hops with Belgian yeast, and a hint of caramel malt. The flavor is very sweet and candy-like, with strong hops and yeast on the finish. It seems like every craft brewer is making a Belgian ipa lately. This is only one I’ve had so far that has enough hops and malt to keep the yeast in the middle to background. Medium bodied with prickly carbonation. Pretty tasty stuff.

patrickfannon (1230) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 27, 2010
Bottle. 25.4 oz. Split with Vin. Pours a bright reddish-orange with an off-white, frothed head. Aroma of peaches, grapes, California dry-hops, raisin bread, and hints of sweet malts and cranberries. Medium to fuller bodied with a tight, slightly sticky, evenly carbonated palate. Finishes with a moderately bitter, yet juicy splash. Decent Belgian ale. Honestly, I excpected this to be a sour from a cursory glance at the label, but it tasted more like a double IPA doesed with Beglian yeast. Overall, not bad.

troopie (2292) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - SEP 26, 2010
Delicious. Draught. Hazy dark orange with thick white head. Floral and peach aroma, very pleasant. Full body, with spicy edge to the caramel. Spicy finish, all over the tongue. Worth drinking again.

Dogbrick (7244) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 26, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2010 Bottle at Bodega Brew Pub in La Crosse. This brew pours a clear orange color with a medium white soap-bubbly head that recedes slowly. Rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of sweet toasted malt and hops. Medium body with floral hops, earthy malt and yeast flavors. The finish is fruity with a lingering yeast and malt aftertaste. Solid brew throughout.

9/24/10. Bomber. Hazy orange pour with a thick eggshell head that lasts and laces a ton. Nice IPA aromas with citrus fruit, a little cat pee, big fruit, etc, all with a spicy subtle funk undertone - very nice. The flavor is big fruity hops with more pronounced spicy funk, but ebbs a bit on the sweet side. Aside from that, quite nice.
