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.

Tasted on draft at Fountainhead. Pours golden with a thick but quickly receding white head. Nose of Belgian yeast, hops, citrus, and some malt. Flavors are malt, citrus, light anise and hops bitterness. Body is medium, carbonation is medium, and the finish is rather short. This is very sessionable, but not terribly exciting.

Beer was described by bartender as a light belgium beer. Pours a light straw color with minimal foam. The aroma is mostly floral with a hint of fruity sweetness. The taste is hoppy, hoppiest belgian I have had. There are hints of banana, hops, and faint peach. this beer does have the Lagunitas sweetness that I am used to, but it comes off much more balanced here. The profile is very well rounded with a crisp aftertaste. Lives up to the Sumpin’ pedigree and would drink again!

Tasted at the 7th Annual Triple Rock Firkin Fest on 4/24/2010.This Belgian Ale pours a light orange gold color from the firkin. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity, yeasty and estery. A medium bodied Belgian Ale. The malts are fruity and sweet, peaches and apricot. The hops are citrusy and grapefruity. This beer is fairly hoppy for a Belgian Ale, but not so much for a Lagunitas beer. Nice fruity and yeasty beer. Good balance. It definitely has the Saison du Pont yeast character. The nice soft carbonation adds to the overall quality of this beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

UPDATED: SEP 24, 2010 Cask @ Toad in the Hole. This is A Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’ Ale with an altered hop profile and Westmalle (I think) yeast. Pours a bright, deep golden-copper color; somewhat hazy; a small off-white, large-bubbled head with modest retention and lacing (at best). A medium tropical-fruit hop character (with some light grapefruit), some generally smooth honeyed sweetness and candy sugar, along with a pleasant vanilla- and banana-focused yeast character; dense, on the sweet side, but pleasant and reasonably smooth. Medium-full body; light carbonation, reasonably creamy and smooth; a touch of alcoholic warmth, but not much; the sweetness is pretty high here, but at least not a huge overt crystal malt focus; honey, sugar, a mineral cereal graininess; the bitterness isn’t especially strong, and the beer instead focuses on the tropical-fruit-driven hop flavor; again, the vanilla and bananas appear from the yeast character, ultimately adding to the apparent sweetness; overall, slightly rough and muddled presentation, but a lot of pleasant notes throughout. Lasting finish: candy sugar, honeyed malts, bananas and vanilla; lightly toasty and bitter at the far end.
