4.63/5 rDev +9.7%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
General: This is a standard in my house but I figured that I would finally review it. I enjoyed this one out of my New Belgium tulip glass. No born on date on this bottle but it's pretty fresh, it's only been in the house for a couple of days.
Appearance: Pours a light gold to normal gold color and is crystal clear. Very bright color to this. There is a great white head that is big and fluffy that diminishes pretty quickly. There is a little bit of lacing, not a lot but what there is looks really good.
Aroma: this is a very balanced aroma with a nice bit of hops with a good malt backbone. There is a little touch of orange that comes through this. I really like the aroma of this, it's really nice!
Mouthfeel: Carbonation is moderate to moderately high and has a coating effect with each sip. The body of this is medium, and is fitting to style.
Taste: Again just like the aroma this is very balanced. There is a nice hop note but it is backed up perfectly by the malt. There are a lot of small flavors in this that come out slowly over time like orange and maybe some light citrus. it's a great beer.
Overall: This is a good beer, plan and simple. It is a standard in my fridge but until tonight I never thought to write a review.

A Little Sumpin' Sumpin' has a clear yellow body with a moderate sized dense white head. Head has good retention and leaves heavy lacing. Aroma has a ton of bright citrus, most noticeably pineapple - the biggest pineapple aroma I have ever experienced. Also has mango and tangerine along with fluffy light white bread.
Taste starts with a bit of bread, then an explosion of pineapple, followed by a bunch of mango. Has a mango, pineapple, and tangerine finish, crisp citrusy and light bread aftertaste. Has an above average heaviness with a bit of creaminess, above average carbonation compliments beer nicely.
