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.

dmac (3881) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - SEP 17, 2010
22 oz bottle from Jonathan Ron. Poured a clear orange body with an average sized frothy off white head. Aroma starts off with some big time citrus notes, barnyard funk, yeast, fermenting berries. Great palate. Medium bodied with a hint of dryness and a medium duration on the aftertaste, highly quaffable. Flavors of yeast, grapefruit, citrus rind, pine needles. Really great stuff.

awitti (2) - North Carolina, USA - SEP 16, 2010 does not count
Disagree with some of these reviews. Perhaps I lucked into a good batch, but I had a couple of bottles the other night and thought this is the best bargain in store. Very complex yet drinkable.

portableparty (1909) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - SEP 10, 2010
Bottle pour, thanks Tournament Liqour (Brandon). Pour is clear orange with an off white head and noticable lacing. Aroma has a big citrus scent with orange and malty yeast. Taste is grapefruit with yeast and orange zest, little wood. Palate is sticky chaulky and finishes dry. I enjoyed this one and will try this again.

Clear golden yellow with a fizzy white head. Big citrus aroma and a tart citrus taste with a crisp dry finish.

Trev (1868) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 10, 2010
orange/dark gold pour with a thick tight head. aroma is that typical citrusy and caramel sweet maltiness that lagunitas has. a little bit of an earthy tone as well. Flavour is very sweet. Very sweet. Some citrus hop in there but the bitterness is just swept away by the sweetness. Hop turns a bit pithy/grassy towards the finish.

Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 30, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2010 Experienced on tap in a small pilsner glass. The beer pours a deep brown to almost black color, with a mild off-white head. The aroma shows piney hop character, along with a slight barnyard funk. The palate is initially assertively bitter, buttressed by a very dry palate. Brettanomyces character comes through beginning in the mid-palate, and carries through to the finish. Overall, an interesting effort.

Beerman6686 (4169) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 28, 2010
This poured a cloudy dark yellow to amber with a white head. Aroma was yeasty and wheaty, some citrus hops and light funk. Flavor was a bit earthy and spicy, nice hops notes overlaying the nice fruity yeasty belgian notes. Interesting beer.

cpetrone84 (1271) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 17, 2010
Had on tap at Smokin Joe’s A-pours a light hazed pale yellow color with a good bit of fluffy white head. S-the nose is quite good, sweet malt base of caramel and yeast, not particularly belgium but the yeast is present. hops are the centerpiece as you would expect, oily pine is faint as citrus takes control with some floral hops present as well. T-the malted wheat body seems to fade out a little in the taste, notes of yeast are there, again not particularly of the belgian variety. tons of citrus, notes of herbal marijuana, grapefruit, light bitterness in the finish. M-extremely soft syrupy medium body that has a lack of carbonation and seems to thin out a little in the back. D-straight forward beer, the complexity I was hoping for did not exist, mild yeast notes on a typically solid hoppy lagunitas beer that lacked the carbonation it should have had.

argo0 (11316) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 4, 2010
BCTC, draft. Medium off-white head atop clear apple juice body. Aroma is moderately sweet, cat urine/grapefruit, some pineapple, light funk. Taste is moderately sweet, grapefruit/cat urine, light biscuit, funk. Medium body, some acidity. Not getting much "wild."
