Pours a golden straw with a billowy white head. Lacing all of the way down my pint glass.
Piney hops in the nose, generic malt sweet, Belgian yeast smell coming behind it.
Taste: [Sweet malt, bitter/dry hops]³, spiced Belgian yeast.
MF: A little sticky, hop dryness lingers on the palate for a fair bit. Not bad, but this beer lets you know that you have just drank it.
This is not a subtle beer, quite the opposite- it is almost inelegant in its presentation- this a brute force of a beer. An atom bomb of flavor with a dryness that lingers on the palate, letting you know whose bitch you are. This is a, to use a film cliche, tour de force beer. It will definitely give the palate a workout, but is well worth the experperience. The willingness to take an awesome beer like Sumpin' Sumpin' and add Belgian yeast to it, to further push the envelope, is why Lagunitas is my favorite brewery.
