The Belgium yeast used in this beer combined with the wheat makes an impactful taste. Nice unique body and overall flavor.

Honey gold color, big white foamy head, fresh hop aroma. Full and balanced, creamy mouthfeel, big hops, not too bitter.

I have had a little sumpin sumpin ale, and to be honest I was expecting a little more from this beer because of how much I liked it, I think the type of yeast they used takes away from the hoppy taste of the beer to some degree. I like it, just not as much as the original sumpiní sumpiní.

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Appearance is light caramel color with lots of beige, frothy head. Aroma is yeasty and fruity. Taste is heavily malt, Belgian yeast, mild and smooth hop profile with notes of grapefruit. Especially pleased with the palate - dry but smooth, not overly bitter.

Bottle. Clear, orange-hued honey body topped with a fluffy, sticky off-white head that coats the glass with thick lacework. Aroma is...unique. Big hops, pine and citrus, but thereís a lot of Belgian flare: grass (from the wheat), clove, fruity esters, bubble gum. Mouth is medium-full with light carbonation and a balanced finish, on the dry side, sticky on the lips after a while. Flavor is sweet up front but with a large dose of hops throughout. Flavors of peach, grapefruit, citrus, wheaty finish thatís dry and bitter. Balanced. Big. Rated high...because Iím starting to do that now. And I like this beer quite a bit...quite a bit. A decent belgian...but thoroughly hopped and malted with good ole Lagunitas style.

bomber sample- beautiful golden straw with a moderate white head, and sticky lacing. Excellent clarity. Nose- pine, fruity, spice, soapy. Taste- very interesting interplay of bittering hops and belgian yeast esters of floral fruitiness along with some citrus notes. Body and carbonation is spot on. A very dry finish from the significant hopping. Very tasty!

Itís lighter, golden pour makes me wonder if this is an ale brewed with lager yeast, or a lager brewed with ale yeast. Either way, its malt sweetness and bitter hops are in perfect balance.

Bottle. Pours a clear gold with a pillowy white head. The aroma is of floral hops, much like an IPA. Initial flavor is mildly sweet with some flowery hops but quickly moves to a bitter finish. Too bitter for my tastes.

Nice and bitter with a good yeast character. Iím missing the spiciness i usually associate with belgian strong ales, but itís good. Youíll find lots of piney aroma punctuated by a sweet malt underbelly. The taste is fruity, malty, with a hoppy punch. I really like how the fizzy gives a little bite. Quite good.
