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.

Pours slightly hazy gold, nice frothy head, lingering cap and nice lacing. Aroma is rich, fruity, hint of yeast. Lots of subtlety, nuance, complexity in the flavors - all while being refreshing, not heavy. It has the earthiness of a Saison or Farmhouse ale but with more finesse, the flavor profile of a Belgian but subtle. Very nice.

Pours a nice golden orangish. Aromas of malts, fruit, and a touch of spice. Has flavors of hops, caramel malts, and a touch of wood that finishes with some nice Brettlike notes.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 1 pint 6 oz bottle into a tulip glass. The label lists the abv at 8.85%, 1.082 OG and 72.51 IBU. It also note that it was fermented with the Westmalle yeast strain. Appearance: The body has a deep amber color with a thick cloudy yeast haze. It’s topped off with a quick setting head of off white foam. Only a light thin film covering remains after a minute. Lacing is minimal and slick. Smell: The aroma has sweet bready maltiness with notes of honey and then loads of pineapple, apple peel, orange peel and some pine like hops. Taste / Palate: The flavor is full of sweet honey notes inside of a deep bready and yeast like base with waves of different fruity notes. My bottle is fairly well aged so hop bitterness is much lower than a fresh bottle. It also worth noting that the 8.85abv is not noticeable at all. The palate and feel are fairly full and smooth. Carbonation is low.

2 finger head is very rocky with great retention.. very clear lite orange golden brew. The nose is immediate and surprisingly pungent hoppy.. citric hoppiness with a great pale malt backbone.. Bitter bite out of the gate with pale malts that melt quickly into an unapologetic citric hoppiness.. some floral hoppiness and minor pine come into play... but wow.. this is an IPA... no where near an American Wheat!!!! Maybe a little bready as it warms, but again the hops just strip away any malt components. I have had a very hard time with this one... I know lagunitas used a bunch of wheat.. but really... the hops are abundant and expected..

On the bitter side. Probably would not buy again. ---Rated via BeerBuddy for iPhone. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wonderful aroma of little apricot, caramel and orange peel. Foam is great at pouring, but quickly falls into a flimsy creamy foam layer on top. It is probably due to the high alcohol strength that foam is not so violent. It is launched as a strong ale. Fruit balance is excellent and it is well to a little heavy caramel. The fruit is again orange peel and apricot, perhaps also a little peach. I think it is close to an English barley wine, because just British barley wines often packs taste of alcohol into good fruity malt tones and caramel, while the American barley wines are much more alcohol dominated and often much stronger.

On tap at Taze. Nice nose with mix of spicy-herbal fresh hops and light wildish funk. Dry. Golden amber with light haze, topped with white fluffy creamy lacing head. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Starts and stays dry with carbonic fizz. Big hop flavor but not too bitter. Nice wild funky notes with big bitter finish and smooth after. Tasty.

Bottle to a teku showing light amber and moderate filtration with sparse white foam. The nose shows a mix of mango with hints of bananas and intermittent sweet bread/yeast notes. The palate is full bodied with even carbonation but not a lot on the palate. A slight bitterness at the end reminiscent of a lager and sharp notes of an IPA. Spicy notes at the end on the palate but in terms of the first impression, there isn’t a lot going on here.

Bottle into tulip glass. Pours a clear golden colour with small white head. Aroma is sweet and fruity. Taste is sweet with a little sourness not getting much bitterness for 72 ibu’s. This is a truly wild brew.
