4.43/5  rDev +5.2%
look: 3 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

bottle into duvel glass

appearance: clear golden orange with 1 finger white head, lots of lacing. I prefer wheat beers to be unfiltered.

smell: wheat, floral, bready notes, citrus

taste: earthy, piney, herbal hoppiness fades into a smooth wheat backbone, with some citrus and grapefruit notes along the way. very floral overtones with a dry refreshing finish.

mouthfeel: decent amount of carbonation, pretty full bodied for a wheat beer

overall: A great wheat ale, smooth yet hoppy, Lagunitas struck gold with this one. One of the better American wheat beers, this packs a punch that wheat beers normally lack. Will be buying again, one of my favorite Lagunitas.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Bottle into 16 ounce Goose Island Glass

Appearance: light amber with a medium thick white head.

Smell: Hoppy, citrusy, piney,

Taste: piney, citrusy, citric, breaddy, bitter-sweet. It goes down very smooth and it's very refreshing.

The mouthfeel is medium thick and highly carbonated.

Overall, This is a great hoppy beer. I'm not a big fan of Wheat Ale's but the hop presence in this one doesn't disappoint. It is definitely one of my favorites Wheat Ales.

Sumpin' Sumpin' Ale - aww yeah

Appearance - Gold and sparkling. Head is brilliant white

Smell - Cascade like hops smell, citrusy and grapefruit

Taste - Big bitter than a nice fruity sweet that matches the smell well. I enjoyed the mellow aftertaste of coppery bitter.

Mouthfeel - Long lasting taste and medium carbonation.

Overall - This beer is so close to Dog Fish Head 90 min rating it is crazy. I would probably drink this one more due to the fruity scents but DFH had slight better carbonation.
