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.

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!

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.

It’s 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.

Hopped_Silly (418) - California, USA - AUG 8, 2012
Initial nose of hoppy citrus and pine is alluring.. Then things change for the worse mid-palate with the introduction of some big, rich, funky yeast qualities that don't strike as pleasant.. The finish is enjoyable though, as the funk calms and drifts off leaving a hoppy citrus impression behind. A rather big, rich beer. Not for me at this time. --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...

Bebum (404) - - JAN 3, 2015
Clear, light gold, tall and persistent head but sparse lace. Exuberant and complex floral nose, the greatest aspect of this beer. Medium body, matching in flavor intensity, silky texture, well rounded mouthfeel, very long palate. Definitly bitter but malty background balances it perfectly. Floral, malty and hoppy. Superb. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

acearl (403) - The Ham, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2013
12 oz bottle, lightly cloudy golden hue with thick creamy white lasting head, smells of banana spice and clove with some grapefruit citrus, good balance of Belgium yeast and hops, alcohol is hidden but effective, spice meshes with the bitterness on the back end. Very nice and enjoyable.

redpooba (401) - New York, USA - JAN 19, 2013
A cloudy yellow-gold with a soft white head. Quite hot on the nose with the alcohol. The body is really only hops and in a blind taste I would confuse it with a unbalanced IPA. Most belgian Strongs will have more depth and character which is missing here. Its a good beer but just not a good Belgian strong.

beerdad (397) - Kansas, USA - JUL 27, 2011
bottled. pours light yellow amber with a smooth moderate offwhite head. aromas of citrus, apple and banana with hints of roasted malt and caramel. has a nice bitter bite with a touch of brown sugar sweetness. This beer is of moderate body though it doesn’t look it. finishes strong with a lasting astringency. pretty good beer.

Poured from 12oz bottle, orange with light lacing. Light citrus nose, slightly cloudy. Bitter with lightness.
