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.

DSG (6242) - Tel Aviv, - NOV 11, 2012
Bottle shared at a tasting at Dancing Camel Florentin. Slightly hazy deep golden. Aroma of hops, a bit stale, and some maltiness. Sweet malty flavor with caramel, a bit of bread, light fruitiness, candy-ish notes and a bitter hoppy finish. Medium-bodied.

jh773 (154) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 21, 2014
Crystal straw-gold, good head one or two fingers. Smell is tangy, a little earthy, strong mango aroma. Taste is rich tropical fruit, lots of savory wheat flavors, some yeasty earth tones. Slightly bitter finish.

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass. Aroma was very yeasty and malty. No head on it. Tastes very complex malts with dry finish. Good.

I don’t know, you could do a lot worse. I like this candied treat, but nothing that knocks me over. It is good, it is complex. Thanks guys.

loubar (45) - Los Gatos, California, USA - NOV 19, 2014
12oz bottle from BevMo. Nice floral, citrus aroma. Flavors of citrus zest, grapefruit hops, sort of fruity on a lightly spiced Belgian yeast background. Moderately carbonated. BIG taste. Great flavor balance for all that is going on. A little bitterness checks the sweetness perfectly. Mild, pleasant alcohol warmth. Lots of brewing skill went into this one. Very flavorful stuff.

Strife21 (152) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 19, 2014
Pours hazy amber with thick frothy head. Smell is pine, resin, hops and bit of yeast, fruit funk. Taste is hoppy, resin, pine, citrus and just a hint of yeast on the bitter finish. Complex and crisp on the tongue. Medium body, heavy carb.

bkurtz (860) - PERU - NOV 19, 2014
bottle - Pours a clear golden with a fairly large, creamy head that left some nice lacing. Great aromas: cotton candy, banana, bubblegum, wow! Taste add some malt build. Taste does not come together like you think after the aromas. Some bitterness and finishes dry. Good, not great.

Barnacle_Ed (1) - Milpitas, California, USA - NOV 18, 2014 does not count
Poured from bottle at home. Golden color with little head. Hoppy and citrus-y with earthy undertones and a hint of caramel. Surprisingly smooth for its alcohol content. Oily mouthfeel that lingers nicely. Another success from a great brewery!

swillguzzler99 (121) - Peoria, Arizona, USA - NOV 18, 2014
From a 12 ounce bottle. Pours honey gold with slight head. A touch of translucency. A hint of Hoppy nose as soon as you open the cap. Taste is earthy and bitter. Slightly lingers. A fine choice.

gkeh (228) - Texas, USA - NOV 17, 2014
Not a fan of Belgian yeast beers at all, but figured I’d give it a try. Aroma is sourdough, yeast, some citrus. Golden amber pour with a frothy white head. Taste is lots of yeast, slick mouthfeel. Not my thing.

Luvystypotables (753) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - NOV 15, 2014
Mild hops, Belgian yeast, clove and banana. Gold color with a lasting white head. Creamy feel with a taste of banana clove and a hint of coriander. Banana finish.
