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.

Straw color. Small head. Aroma is earthy and floral with a bit of grapefruit. Moderately bitter and well balanced flavor. Delish.

UPDATED: SEP 24, 2010 Cask @ Toad in the Hole. This is A Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’ Ale with an altered hop profile and Westmalle (I think) yeast. Pours a bright, deep golden-copper color; somewhat hazy; a small off-white, large-bubbled head with modest retention and lacing (at best). A medium tropical-fruit hop character (with some light grapefruit), some generally smooth honeyed sweetness and candy sugar, along with a pleasant vanilla- and banana-focused yeast character; dense, on the sweet side, but pleasant and reasonably smooth. Medium-full body; light carbonation, reasonably creamy and smooth; a touch of alcoholic warmth, but not much; the sweetness is pretty high here, but at least not a huge overt crystal malt focus; honey, sugar, a mineral cereal graininess; the bitterness isn’t especially strong, and the beer instead focuses on the tropical-fruit-driven hop flavor; again, the vanilla and bananas appear from the yeast character, ultimately adding to the apparent sweetness; overall, slightly rough and muddled presentation, but a lot of pleasant notes throughout. Lasting finish: candy sugar, honeyed malts, bananas and vanilla; lightly toasty and bitter at the far end.
