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. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with good head. Lots of hops on the nose and taste. I like the complexity and can see how the yeast came through but it was nice and balanced and not in your face. Very tasty, I’m heading to get more for the beer cellar soon.

MacBoost (1425) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - MAR 24, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear gold with a clean white head. Aromas of musty yeast, muted hop presence. Touch of funk underneath. A little stale. Hops have been lost. Decent, not Mind blowing. Waxed.

I’m not a big Belgian strong ale fan, but this is enjoyable. Lots of carbonation, the yeast is relatively mild. I get lemon and clove along with the mild sourness. Nice combo with the hops bitterness. The ABV isn’t as apparent as I expected. Pretty tasty.

Barreras (1141) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - FEB 23, 2015
Pours a yellow orange color with a citrus pineapple aroma. Taste is clean, with a malt backbone. Mild yeast flavor that leaves a minor bitter aftertaste coupled with alcohol.

tectactoe (2882) - Michigan, USA - FEB 17, 2015
Tap: Golden-straw color, super hazy, completely opaque with a big, fluffy white head adorned on top. Long lasting. Floral hoppage on the nose, nice balance of bitter leaves, grass, pine, citrus rind, & a touch of baked biscuits. Light yeast. Flavor also starts very floral-like with a big pine character. The hops take a split between tropical & citric as well, introducing pineapple, grapefruit, mango, & pear. Mild phenol character with a heavily bready, slightly gummy, & modestly spicy yeast finish. Hint of clove, cardamom, finishing with orange rind & pine sap. Tasty stuff.

matty (236) - Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 14, 2015
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear gold color with a brief white head. Nice aroma of hops and malt. Medium-full body with a good balance of piney hops and sweet malt with a touch of sourness during the slightly bitter finish. Good one!

NeuroPliny (208) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 8, 2015
Taster at Lagunitas. Pours clear amber with a generous white head. Aroma is light hops, sweet malts, and hints of ripe fruit and barnyard. Flavour is well balanced malts and hops with notes of barnyard yeast and spices. Medium body.

jgb9348 (4946) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - FEB 2, 2015
Completely clear peach and light copper coloured body with a thin, single centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of pure brett, light wheat, grain, alcohol, vinegar and a good fresh herb scent - nice and pungent. Medium-bodied; Effervescent quality up front with a potent yeast kick with the brett very noticeable and a pungent bitterness from herbs and grass also at the end. Aftertaste shows a big alcohol kick (more than I expected) and a big fresh malt and hop character with more brett and yeast notes than anything else, but in a good way. Overall, a very well-crafted beer with tons of character, but perhaps a touch too deep and bitter, along with a nice brett and yeast flavour throughout. I sampled this stubby twelve ounce bottle purchased from Lebanese Taverna Market in Arlington, Virginia on 07-January-2015 sampled at home in Washington on 01-February-2015 - Thanks Kev!

DocJitsu (1140) - Florida, USA - FEB 1, 2015
Pours a clear, classic golden with a large, smooth, fluffy, white head, in spite of a careful pour. Light notes of hop resin are dominated by earthy Belgian aromas. Healthy, rich, soft mouthfeel. Well-blended malt sweetness, barnyard overtones, and tartness.

ACHops (870) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 18, 2015
On tap @ Lagunitas Petaluma. Pours hazy orange amber with lacy white head. Aroma is mild caramel malt, light hops, and sweet lightly funky Belgian yeast notes. Taste is similar - here the Belgian yeast flavor dominates fairly substantial malt and hops. Finishes dry and clean. Tastes well smaller than ~9%. Interesting beer, and good, but honestly probably not an improvement on straight Lil’ Sumpin.
