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.

Bottle, bought @ Kihoskh, Cph.
Clear golden colour. Firm, frothy, staying, white head. Aroma has good peachy hops, light grapefruit and apricot, some resin, light fruity esters and mild doughy malts. Medium carbonation, light oily and fat mouthfeel with mild dryness. Flavour has good sweetness, kinda doughy malts, light estery, pineapple, green apple. Light vinious, good bitterness. Even it is the usual Lagunitas extract hops bitterness, it still packs a good punch. This is a fine IPA/Belgian experiment overall.

Really enjoyed this. Smelled of citrus hops with a light malty sweet. Golden orange color. Medium to light bodied and carbonated lightly. Tasted much sweeter than it smelled, expected it to be hoppy but the citrus hops were very light. It had a medium sweetness of oranges and honey.

Brilliant orange gold. Aroma is tangy, with floral hops. Great bitterness - earthy and floral mix. Great malt backbone with some acidity. Great match of flavors. Residual bitterness. Smooth and light on the palate. Love this stuff.

Bottle. Clear gold pour with lacing white head. Grassy aroma with hops and a hint of citrus. Grapefruit tart in the taste with a hint of hops. Kinda reminds me of a strong spring ale. Nice dry finish that leaves you wanting more. And again, I love Lagunitas. Another solid brew.

Bottle: Pours a clear bubbly yellow with a thin white head. Nice piney hops aroma. Taste is initially slightly sweet malt but is rapidly dominated by bitter hops and finishes with a slight hint of sour yeasts. As you let it sit, you really notice the pils malts. This has a medium bubbly mouth feel appropriate to the style with a touch of alcohol on the front edges of the tongue. Overall, this is a good beer for anyone that likes hoppy beers and appreciates the sour finish. I tend to like my beers a little more balanced and would have appreciated additional complexity.

Bottle, shared with Parksy. Hazy bright orange gold with a lively almond head that collapses into rocky flotsam. Floral citrus and caramel aroma. Delicious flavours of orange blossom, grapefruit, white grape juice, caramel. Quite floral. Nicely bitter finish with peppery accents. Awesome!

mattollila (2) - USA - DEC 17, 2010 does not count
The beer seemed mildly flat, perhaps due to shelf life? There was a small white head resting on a light coppery soft orange. The nose is very fruity with a hint of pine. The beer seems very drinkable and leaves a very slight aftertaste of yeasty goodness.

VertBaconStrips (2371) - Blerkablerka, VENEZUELA - DEC 14, 2010
Great tasting foam! Clear orangy amber brew with a large bubbly white cap and plenty of lacing. Grapefruit, soft pine, peaches and Colton Orr just beat the piss out of Scortini. Light very light yeasty spice, sweat, oranges for aroma- that’s a lot. Tasty stuff - peaches and grapefruit sweetness dominate, richness, just enough belg style yeast to ensure I keep tasting the usual Lagunitas yumminess. Enough caramel to keep some balance, light pine, background yeast tartness and faint licorice. I really dig this beer. Smooth carbonation, incredibly easy to drink, I like the yeast here. Pretty much the standard awesomeness of Lagunitas (when applicable). Oh fuck, now I notice that is it 8.85%.

Bright copper tinged straw colored body with a voluminous frothy white head that lasts through the entire glass. Nose is very expressive with loads of grapefruit and fresh leafy hops along with spice and hay. Strong toasted bread malt body with caramel and light fruity sweetness. Some brown sugar notes and tart apple. Pine and more citrus. Smooth grainy finish. Really a fantastic drink.

This is a very good beer. Poured a light gold/orange with a big creamy white head, lacing and retained and all sorts of small carb bubbles. On the nose it is the belgian yeast and citrus hops (orange, lemon) over a sweet malt backing. Medium body with full carbonation, pricks the tongue, a most balanced finish just a little on the dry bitter side. The taste is complex and keeps coming at you. Oranges, lemons, and the associated hop bitterness along with a nice malt backbone (not big but nice) and that belgian yeast flavoring. wow.
