4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Lagunitas A Little Sumpiní Wild is a clear, dense golden ale with a small, elastic white head. It has a fresh aroma thatís very fruity, like tropical fruit. Itís floral and grassy. It smells great. Itís pretty full bodied and very smooth with a clean, dry finish. Itís very hoppy and bitter from start to finish. Itís a green bitterness, like pine and juniper. Thereís a funky grumble just before the finish, where the yeast flavors blend with the hop flavors. This is where the alcohol presents itself, to continue on to a peppercorn finish. Wow, the yeast isnít distracting and it all works!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from BevMo. Hoppy bitter nose. Some grapefruit peel, aolng with a touch of pine. Smells a little sweet as well. Tastes like an IPA. Lots of bitterness. A bit of sweetness, with a dry peppery finish. I donít taste any Belgian qualities at all. Still itís a good IPA.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This beer pours a golden amber with a medium white head that dissipates quickly. The aromas are thyme and oregano, lemon, mint and a little black pepper. The mouthfeel is dry, sticky and bitter. Lots of bold flavors in this thing! I really liked it. Cheers!

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Infrequent taste of sour and bitter. Clear light amber color, with less head than most Belgians. Modest aroma leans towards sour.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lagunitas lil sumpin wild on tap at publican. Post marathon brew...
Pours a mostly transparent orang brown with a champagne like
effervescence and a fluffy white head... Aroma of vibrant citrusy
fruityhop profile, not all that much different than the standard
sumthin and still nice for that matter... Flavors are much of the same
with an apparent creamy fluffiness, fairly sweet with some honey
accents. Very fruity and finishes with a mild bitterness.

22 oz bottle. Clear golden yellow with a fluffy white head and clumpy lace. Nose is funky citrus, yeast and pine. Medium body with fuzzy carb. Taste is orange peel, green melon, grapefruit zest and yeast. Finishes with quinine and white pepper. Not so wild but a good hoppy Belgian.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This starts with a citrus hop aroma, with a bit of funk in the background. Pours a clear amber with a large, fluffy, white head. Interesting flavor... a strong hop presence, caramel malts, and a bit of Belgian spice that seems a bit out of place. Drinkable... but I think Iíll stick to the other Little Sumpiní ales over this one.
