We are almost at a loss of words for A Little Sumpin' Sumpin' Ale. Almost hard to pin down specific flavors, we actually even have a hard time believing its classified as a Weizen. luckily you know we are always happy to give it a good ol' try....

A Little Sumpin' Sumpin' Ale pours a burnished golden color. Atop the brew sits a half-inch of white head, spotty lacing is noticeable. A big citrusy and floral hop bouquet hop out of the glass, with a certain yet undefinable sweetness underlining the hoppiness. Sweet malt hits the pallet first and is followed by hints of banana, clove, and strawberry before finishing with citrus hop bitterness. Medium bodied, A Little Sumpin' Sumpin' Ale has a higher level of carbonation. Still not exactly sure where this beer falls categorically, however it is extremely delicious.

A: Golden bright and clear. Not much head.

S: Delightful floral/citrus hops. Plenty of hops in here. Sweet light malt.

T: Light malty sweetness with plenty of hop flavor. Floral and citrus dominates.

M: Medium full, nicely carbonated.

Plenty of hops with a bit a malty sweetness, wheat adds great mouthfeel. Quite good.

I'd score this a 5 but I believe in always leaving room for improvement. Amazing hop quality, amazing nose, amazing flavor. How they make a 7% abv beer and keep it so nice for a summer day is beyond me. I had several IPA's after this, including some truly fantastic beers, and they imparted far more bitterness w/o any of the hop flavor. This spoiled my palate because it was so good. Please enjoy...

A: Big white frothy head, clear golden color. Head stays, tons of lacing. Impressive

S: Piney citrus hop bight, some wheaty malts,

T: Sweet lemon citrus notes, caramel, molasses biscuity malt backbone. Pine-y crisp finish. Very bright colors, definitely a summer brew. Even a hint of alcohol heat. Some peppery notes in there too. More pale ale than wheat.

M: Very heavy full mouthfeel, high carbonation, not a real session brew.

O: Very tastey brew overall, well made, another quality brew from Lagunitas. They never dissapoint. More like a malty/wheaty pale ale. For a summer seasonal it stands out, this is no lawn-mower beer.
