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.

redlight (2317) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 1, 2010
draft @ redlight redlight. Big hop nose, piney with some citrus and hints of spice. Pours blonde with a solid white head. Piney hops upfront with some bitter citrus peels, sweet orange and spicy belgian sweetness. Solid beer.

yinzerbeernut (180) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 1, 2010
22oz bottle. The appearance blew me away. It is an ever so slight hazy amber color with a touch of carbonation. The head is eggshell and a beautiful pillow top followed by lacing that clung to the glass like melted sugar that re-solidified. On nose there is massive hop, citrus, and sugar scents. On palate there is an initial hop ’pow’ followed by an almost candy like taste up front. The finish was puzzling sweat yet hot.

Pours clear and orangey with a medium head. Wonderful fruit and sweet malt nose. Medium body with citrus hoppiness and a witbeer kind of spice. Finishes smooth. A really nice beer.

bhensonb (11531) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 1, 2010
Bomber from Taylor’s Market in Sacramento, CA. Pours rather clear and orange with a foamy white head. Lush floral/fruit aromas. Near full bodied with foamy carbonation. Malt? Well hidden. Hop - lots of floral, could be background citrus and pine. Finishes with a little light malt sweet and bitter stuck all over the mouth. YUM!

mar (4960) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 1, 2010
Bottle says 8.85%. Crisp amber with a nice white head. Fresh citrus hops, faint spice, cinnamon maybe, yeast comes through faintly as well. Very smooth and easy to drink. Hops hit you upfront with great citrus flavors, light fruits, yeast kicks in along with the spices.

Ibrew2or3 (7107) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 1, 2010
Poured up on tap at the Brass Tap pouring clear copper with gold edges and off white head. The aroma puts out loads of rich citrus, spicy hops and some smooth smelling sugary malt sweetness. The taste is rich sugar infused grapefruit, sugary tangelo juice, orange peel and some spicy hops to round out the initial impression. Full rich hoppy brew with loads of hop flavor and moderate hop bitterness creating a pleasing balance. I think the yeast used here may have allowed this to seem a touch thinner and drier.

fidel (1302) - Livermore, California, USA - OCT 1, 2010
Poured hazy golden orange, caramel malts, grassy hops, citrus rind, stone fruit, yeasty, little grainy.

dchmela (2683) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 1, 2010
Tap at Redlight. Pours a light gold and clear with a tight thick white head. Fresh hop aroma, grassy with a touch of fruit. Nice clean malt body with a nice hop balance and touches of Belgian yeast esters. Real nice.

Nalu (217) - Washington, USA - SEP 30, 2010
Tap @ Top’s. Clear gold pour, short white head leaving moderate lace. Hoppy, grassy nose which continues all the way through. There is a sugary sweetness that enters early and lasts. Medium body and carbonation. It works, but makes the beer less sessionable. More of an IPA than a Belgian.

Pours a crystal clear amber into the glass with a nice white head that is fluffy at first and then fades a bit. Aroma is nice citrusy hops joined by a spicy Belgian character. Flavor is a nice citrusy bitterness with some sweeter malt and a bit of Belgian flare. Nice beer, but I was expecting a sour with "wild" in the name.
