COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Another Big Sister of the Little Sumpiní Sumpiní AleÖ. Loads of Malted Wheat for a Curious Malt Foundation and a Light Color, But Our Belgian Yeast Leaves a Huge Flavor and Complexishness.

Clear gold pour with a 2-finger, foamy, white head. The aroma is orange, lemon and grapefruit with with sweet honey and cereal grains, complemented by some Belgian candi, soft yeastiness, bubblegum, and toffee. The flavor is much more dominated by the Belgian character than the aroma. Lots of pungent clove and bubblegum esters upfront with a healthy dose of honey, candi sugar, and creamy wheat in the middle. The hops come out strong on the finish with lots of bright orange peel and lemon and a long bitter grapefruit note lingering afterward. The body is creamy and full with lots of gentle carbonation.

Bottle via trade with michael-pollack- thanks again, Pollack! Pours a clear, bright cold color with a bone white head. Aroma of lemon citrus, soap, sweet pale malts, floral hops, and perfume. The flavor follows suit pretty closely. I like the Westmalle yeast here. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a soft, malty mouthfeel. More sweetness in the flavor than on the nose. This didnít strike me as all that íwildí, but maybe thatís because Iíve been tainted by American sours. A nice beer nonetheless.

BMan1113VR (7902) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 12, 2010
Bottle marked at 8.85%. Pours with a slightly hazed golden body and a small, off-white head. Huge, foamy, sticky lacing! Aromas of strong citrus/floral/spicy hops, belgian yeast, and caramel. HUGE pine. Tons of hops! Smells very citrus and very well attenuated. Tons of resin! Flavors are bitter, candied orange peel, light phenolics, and burnt flan. More resin. Very lively carbonation. Dry. Some canned pineapple and grapefruit. Pretty tasty Belgian IPA. Excellent infact.

Tap. Semi hazy orange pour with a foamy white head. Awesome fruity aroma with citrus and pine hops. Taste is juicy, pine hop, and bubblegum. Terrific.

Draft at Jerryís. Golden with big, foamy, white head / Floral nose of citrus, bubblegum, and hops / Medium body, hint of sweetness, good malts with biting hop balance, and good finish / Flavors of grapefruit, bubblegum, passion fruit, pine, green herb, and honey / An excellent pale ale, but the Belgian aspect is muted.

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!

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.

dyetube (1315) - McKinney, Texas, USA - OCT 11, 2010
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!
