Review from notes. Had this a month or so ago...

Pours a bright/clear honey color with 2 fingers of pearl colored head. Good head retention & lacing

S: Pears, peaches, plus citrus & piney hops

T: Follows the nose, some earthy notes & grapefruit up front. Dryness, grapefruit & herbal hops once warm, a little bit of cherry & pears as well. Finishes with citrus & piney hop & little more pear

MF: Medium bodied, smooth carbonation & good balance

Drinks easy, nice effort. Somewhat reminds me of Boulevard Tank#7

A: Pours into a snifter a clear orange color, very slight head with a little laced down the glass.
S: I swear every beer from Lagunitas i've had smell the same. Earthy/grasslike hop scent. Thats about it.
T: Small bit of sweetness up front followed by purfumey/grass hop bitterness at the end. I'm not picking up anything resembling Belgian yeast.
M: Medium bodied, finishes very dry....pucker you up dry.
D: I usually like Lagunitas beers but this one did not impress me. For me this is an average at best beer...probably won't want to try this one again.

I hade this on tap at the Spinnerstown Hotel. It followed my first taste of 10-10-10. This beer pours with a red tint. Smell is very hoppy. I would call this a Strong Belgian IPA. The hop flavor is really strong when first poured. It tasted like a weak Nugget Nectar. As it warmed the Belgian flavor was more dominant. Goes down easier when warmer.

Served on draft in a tulip glass.

Brilliantly clear, deep gold. Large, fluffy white head that lasts to the bottom of the glass.

The aroma starts with a blast of grapefruity, citrusy hops, then the Belgian yeast spiciness sneaks in. Low grainy malt sweetness and a hint of alcohol.

Complex sweet pils malt flavor, with overtones of wheat spiciness. Medium hop bitterness and high citrusy hop flavor. Plenty of Belgian spice, including pepper and hints of peach pits and almonds.

Medium-light body, with nice, high carbonation. Dry finish. This beer hides the alcohol very well, making in dangerously drinkable.

Poured a vivid orange-amber into a pint glass with a finger of fluffy white head. Aroma dominated by citrus hops and a touch of caramel sweetness.

Moderate carbonation and a creamy, smooth mouthfeel. Just a hint of warming alcohol presence. Pleasant sweetness up front with hints of Belgian candi sugar and banana. Mild caramel malt backbone with lots of orange zest, spice, and some grapefruit tartness on the long, hoppy finish.

Not funky in the least, but a very tasty, balanced, and easy-drinking Belgian-influenced hoppy ale. (A great value to boot!)

Had this on-tap at the Happy Gnome in St. Paul. No, it wasn't terribly wild, but it was a fine hoppy Belgian pale ale. I was surprised how well these guys pulled off the mix of peppery Belgian yeast character with fruity hops. I'd say the brewery has made good use of the Westmalle strain. Check it out.

Served on-tap in a Cavalry Brewing Co. pint glass at G.W. Tavern in Washington Depot, Conn.

A: poured a solid, golden yellow color with a frothy, two-finger thick had of soft, sterling white foam which held quite nicely and left great sheets of lace in the glass. Clarity was excellent and the brew looked ample and inviting.

S: Effervescent, fruity malt aroma with good amounts of spices and herbal esters. Bits of pear, apple and banana come through with the nutmeg, saffron and white pepper in the nose.

T: Dry, sweet and fruity malt profile up front, lending yellow apple, pear and buttery biscuit to the palate, whilst also throwing in a peppery, minted and alcoholic twang into the mix. Smooth and peppery body leaves a slick coat of alcohol and estery, bitter hops in the finish.

M: Full-bodied, creamy, quite smooth and effervescent enough to be a lively sipper.

D: A dangerous brew at nearly 9% ABV, but quite balanced and tasty with a nice, aesthetic showing indeed. Perhaps not the most traditional Belgian strong pale you could imagine, but one with distinct American flair and bitterness. A nice brew and one I'd definitely have again.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

22oz bomber pulled from fridge and allowed to sit out for about a half hour before opening. poured into a standard pint glass.

pour out a hazy golden orange color with a decent amount of sediment. one finger of creamy white head with good retention. some decent sticky lace.

hops are almost all i get in the aroma. big tropical fruit, floral, and pellet hop aromas. a bit of lemony citrus, slight bready malt. not much from the westmalle yeast used in this beer. maybe some spiciness.

lots of hops! mostly tropical fruit like hops. also some floral and lemon zest citrus. decent amount of spiciness present, most likely caused from the mix of big and hops and belgian yeast. a bit of wheaty, bready malt. tastes like a good ipa, other than the spiciness, theres not much belgian yeast to taste which disappoints a little.

medium to full bodied. lots of hop bitterness that wrecks the palate in all the ways a DIPA do. decent feeling carb, but definatly not that of a belgian pale ale.

this drinks, tastes and feels like a DIPA, and a very good one to boot, but i just wished it had more of that westmalle yeast strain. its there, but hardly. still a great tasting, hard hitting IPA. and if thats what you want, definatly worth a try, if you want more of a belgian thing, look for something else.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A Little Sumpin' Wild pours a light gold color. It's very clear, and brightens with backlighting. The head is bone white and is about a finger or so in depth. It recedes to a surface covering quickly and holds there. Lacing was on the lighter side.

The nose is good, but would benefit from a little more strength. It kicks off with a bit of a spicy yeast scent. It's mostly pepper. There are some fruity notes, including a little apple and pear. A little citrus pineapple, grapefruit, and lemon hop scents are noted. Sweet pale malt is noted throughout. Again, the yeasty scent seems to revive and continue throughout. It's interesting. I was expecting a little Brett, but it's not here. Nothing funky about it. Musky maybe, but not funky.

The flavor is consistent with the nose, but is a bit better with the delivery. It starts out with a bit of a malty, sweet flavor. That's followed by the spicy yeast. It's mostly peppery, but is quite strong throughout. Hops are strong in the mix. They feature citrus grapefruit, pineapple, lemon, and light orange flavors. They add a bit of bitterness, but not a ton. It might be a little earthy and musky, but it's definitely not funky. There is no Brett! Alcohol is blended very well and isn't noticeable for the most part. It finishes spicy and rather dry. Damn this is tasty!

The body is relatively light, and feels thin. A little too thin. Carbonation is mid-range, and doesn't really hurt (or help). Drinkability is good. The flavor isn't what I expected, but it is good. It goes down easy for a beer that's nearly 9% abv. Too easy actually.

A Little Sumpin' Wild is not the American Wild Ale I expected. Perhaps I should read the forums more. Nonetheless, it is a very good Belgian Strong Pale Ale. The use of American hops certainly adds some pizzazz to already tasty style, and gives it a unique flavor. The only complaint I have is that the body's a little too thin. Good stuff otherwise...in typical Lagunitas fashion.

M- Nice medium body, smooth, refreshing.

D- Very enjoyable and easy to drink. 8.85% ABV is not noticeable at all. Good price and will be buying another bottle or two very soon.

Poured from a 22 oz. bomber into a clear pint glass. Paid $3.79 at local grocer.

A-Pours a clear golden-copper hue with a two finger head with good retention and lacing.

S-Hoppy with tropical essences (more mango than citrus) with spicy undertones. Quite nice.

T-Mild spice (peppery) from the yeast with sweet tangy blend of malts and hops that balance well.

M-Very smooth with a medium to full body.

D-A good beer at a very good price. Not certain it is true to style. It has elements similar to a barleywine and similar to American strong ale. The yeast presence is what makes it similar to a BSPA.

Reviewed on 11/7/10

Poured into a tulip. Crystal clear, golden colored body. 1.5 finger, white head that holds well with moderate lacing.

Smell was tropical, estery and a slight musty aroma. Mild malt sweetness

Taste had tropical flavors. Hints of clove and banana. Some musty flavor. Mild bitterness in the finish that is floral and citrusy. Hints of caramel and a mellow sweetness.

Mouthfeel had a medium body with a medium/light carbonation. Moderately dry finish.

Drinkability was good. Good blend of flavors. No signs of abv.

Really good overall. ALmost a cross between a tropical IPA and a saison.

Golden-saffron in color with off-white head. Looks nice in a snifter. Wonderful lacing. Pretty. Smells funky and grapefruit-y. Fun.

Semi-heavy, funky, and smooth. Hay and malt, coupled with prickly citrus notes. Pineapple. Powdery and dry in the finish. Hint of creaminess in the mouthfeel. Alcohol creeps a bit -- watch out!

I'm not typically a huge fan of the Belgian IPA class of brews, but this one is actually quite tasty. Would be kick-ass with sweet and sour pork.

4.58/5  rDev +11.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Appearance: clear amber-orange body with golden highlights. Median sized bubbles rise steadily beneath a frothy head of off-white. Good head retention. Nice lacing.

Aroma: Floral and a touch citrusy. Sharply mineralish with crushed granite and 'tang'. Hoppy. Sweetly malty with straightforward grain. Fruity pineapple.

Taste: Fruity (pineapple, berries, apple) and malty upfront with some herbs, minerals, and peppery spice coming from the yeast. The mineralish side almost suggests a tanginess like that of a blue-veined cheese. It's leafy and floral, and a touch citrusy and piney going into the finish. Suddenly it becomes very dry, but not overly bitter - a perfectly balanced transition away from all of the sweetness at the beginning. Some mild phenolic lingers amidst the bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a dextrinous edge that's cut through by a standard carbonation. It's not quite crisp, but there's enough carbonation to cut through the body and help clean it up in the finish. Any more carbonation would cut through that dextrinous malt leaving it seemingly too thin. Nice.

Drinkability: Given that it's 8.85% abv I was surprised to find it served in Imperial pints at my local; but that didn't stop me from having two in a row! My friends (who are not quite as well versed in beer) enjoyed it as well, and it was agreed that although it's not "WILD", it does have a good deal of character going for it. It's easy to consume, and remarkably compelling to the experienced taster, leaving me to give it the highest rating for drinkability. I've bought a few bottles, and given its price to satisfaction ratio I may just put out the hundred or so bucks for a whole case to cellar.

realized I hadn't reviewed one of these yet, despite it becoming one of my go-to bombers!

Pours a beautiful golden hue with a light haze. a creamy two-finger head has impressive retention, leaving a chunky collar and floating bubbles across the surface. Impressive lacing down the glass.

aroma is complex. apples, grapefruit, citrusy hops. funky estery banana kicks in along with a touch of pepper. It walks the thin line between a stunning IPA and an interesting belgian ale. which is a good thing. pineapple, juniper berries and spruce in the finish.

Taste is surprisingly clean, smooth, and unified for how complex everything is. caramel malts, candi sugar, belgian yeast, heavy citrus, grapefruit and pine hops, all intermingling beautifully. Lemon and hints of under-ripe apple.

Mouth is beautiful. medium full bodied with a resinous finish. pine, almost gin-like bitterness. Perfect when I think about it, and perfect for drinking when I don't think 'bout it.

This has been one of my go-to brews when I don't know what I want. It's always tasty, always goes down smooth. the alcohol is surprisingly hidden and the belgian yeast is beautifully and subtly integrated. I'm not a big belgian IPA fan, but this one is absolutely perfect.

4.35/5  rDev +5.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Great twist of the little sumpin series, and a nice take on the Belgian IPA.

Presentation: 22 oz bottle. Recurring retro design from Lagunitas with the 50´s pin-up like female illustration and the logo around a simple design based on the name. Tongue in cheek narrative about the qualities of the brew in a storied scenario. Shows IBUs (72.51), gravity at 1.082, and Alc. (8.85%) Poured into a tulip glass.

A - Pours a clear deep to pale gold. Generous foamy head, with tremendous lacing as it goes down leaving a persistent lumpy cap.

S - Funky hops with a Belgium note. Resin and pine, some citrus woven in a soft tangy funk, resinous grapefruit, and a feeling of freshness.

T - Very rich taste, which delicately picks up the aroma and expands on it with a nice hoppy feel, funky dash, not necessarily what one would call wild but in line what the terrain opened up by Belgium IPA, yeasty Belgium sense woven in rich hoppiness, that retains a sweet malt touch in the undercurrent, lightly spicy, with a characteristic Lagunitas dash and a hint of pineapple.

T - Follows and enhances the nose with a hoppy and funky start, resin and pine again with a faint citrus sense. Notes of yeast woven with a distant malty structure.

M - Medium body with good carbonation. Starts on an almost watery note that quickly is picked up by the hoppy bite and the carbonation to provide quite a crisp finish.

D - Enticing, deceptively drinkable.

Notes: Another hoppy hit from Lagunitas well worth seeking out, and again the price/quality ration is outstanding. I've had it on tap also a few months back and it was equally delicious. These bombers took a while to show around but it is a very welcome presence.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

pours a slightly hazy golden color with a nice pure white head that is made up of huge bubbles, slowly recedes, and leaves messy lacing on the glass.

first sniff (straight from the bottle) is of a pine tree with some citrus. after poured, the Belgian yeast makes itself known with some spices and bazooka joe bubble gum, and even some bready yeast makes its way into the fold. to be honest, I liked it a bit straight from the bottle better, but either way it smells delicious!

flavor is a bit heavier in the yeasty flavors than hoppy. a touch funky, but more in tune with a Belgian IPA style than something "wild" or "funky". that being said, it may be one of the better Belgian IPA's I have had. hops are a bit piney and minty with plenty of citrus and tart tropical fruits. Belgian character is peppery, fruity, and spicy with the obvious clove, but also some other herbs and spices I can't quite name. not bad at all.

mouthfeel is good. medium bodied with generous carbonation and a huge aftertaste of funk and hops.

drinks really well. would like them to ditch the "wild" name, but i didnt mark them down for it. wild does not quite describe this beer, while a Belgian IPA would be a bit closer. Overall, a terrific brew, and probably the best Lagunitas I have had.

Poured into a tulip glass from a 1 pt 6 oz bottle.

A - Pours a strong golden yellow color with a 0.5 inch head that has some nice tight white bubbles and has some stickiness to it.

S - Wow. Aroma is perfect for me. Tangerines and oranges with some sweet grapefruit hints as well. Some nice Belgian phenols and yeast aroma. Delicious. Good bread notes and great hop notes blended well with the yeast. What more do you need.

T & M - Starts off with some nice clove hints and phenols. There is some bready malt character in the middle as well. There are some grapefruit, tangerine and tropical fruit hints in the flavor as well and quite a nice hop profile. There are some nice citrus notes along with the malt bready flavors. This beer is an interesting combination of flavors. Good bread notes and earthy grain along with some citrus and tropical fruit hop flavors and then that delicious Westmalle yeast. There are also spices a plenty that really round out this beer. Crisp and clean with great CO2. Light and refreshing mouthfeel.

D - Delicious and refreshing beer. I really enjoyed this one and would definitely have it more often.

Poured into a tulip.

A: Pours a slightly thin, fizzy golden orange color with 1 1/2 fingers of head. Faint haziness in color. Bubbles stream up laser etch constantly. Larges sheets of lacing.

S: Bursts of citrus and tropical hops. Was not expecting this much hop smell, but the yeast shines through the back end. Estery and a little bubblegum round out the smell.

T: Tastes better than it smells. Bubblegum and spicy yeast dominate, while the hop profile complements with a nice bitterness. Sweet, spicy, fruity, and bitter all blend together wonderfully.

M: Prickly carbonation and medium bodied.

D: Was really blown away with this one considering I wasn't expecting much. Great BSPA, with a nice addition of hop flavor. ABV and carbonation cuts down the drinkability a notch. Can't wait for the day Lagunitas makes its way to AL.

Lots of delicious spice and fruit flavors and a pinch of floral notes perhaps perfectly blended with hoppy goodness a great beer for any time of year highly drinkable goes down very smooth IBU's are not sky high so if that's what your after IBU's this is not your beer but still very worth trying.

22 oz bottle. Nice label art.

Pours an ultra clear gold, with a decent off-white head that patches to the glass. Smell is a bit hot, but contains a very pleasing blend of candied fruits and spices. I'm liking this one right away. Taste starts off with some bubblegum and dives right into the spicy Belgian yeast. A segue into sweet grapefruit hops follows, and by the end, an assertive bitterness leaves me wanting another drink. All the while, a mellow base allows room for all the other flavors to happen. In the end, this is a subtle beer, but is so complex.. Even a touch of alcohol feel isn't enough to dampen this brew whatsoever. It reminds me a lot of Raging Bitch, and that is not a bad thing whatsoever. A great beer imo.

Poured from a bomber into my Midnight Sun Brewing Co. chalice.

Poured a deep golden, small, 1/4 inch head, with lively carbonation.

slight citrus, and piney hop, but the apricots really make the aroma come alive.

I get the same apricot in the taste, that really sets this beer apart for me as spectacular. Assertive hop bitterness after the swallow lingers and refreshes the pallet. Almost reminiscent of a lighter bodied, dry peche lambic, but with a hop bite on the end. Delicious.

Medium bodied, carbonation dances on the tongue.

I'll enjoy this bottle and grab another one for a different night, but cannot drink another one tonight.

Poured a nice a clear golden with amber red hues,one finger head that dissipated quickly,light lacing,light carbonation.

Smell was of apricot,light hops ,pine.

Taste -Well blended pine notes with light citrus , apricots, light hops, little malts -

Drinkabilty -This taste's more like a IPA than a strong Belgian ale IMO! - Either way this was a solid brew that was very easy to drink ,Blended nicely ,nothing overpowering.
A little Sumpin Wild hits a home run in my book -
I hope they intend on brewing it more.

22 oz. bottle at 42* into a tulip.

A: This pours an entirely transluscent orange color with red hues and a finger and a half of slightly off-white head that laces better than any beer I have ever seen.

S: The nose includes notes of piney and especially floral hoppiness, sweet apricots, perfumey yeast, and perhaps some licorice undertones.

T: It is intensely hoppy with strong grapefruit and peach notes, some earthy funk, and an aftertaste of perfume.

M: This is quite frothy and very nearly soapy.

D: This is very unique and probably best qualified as a Belgian IPA.

Very nice beer. A beautiful copper color with a light, lingering beige head. Strong smell of hops. Flavor is very citruisy/grapefruit. Mouthfeel and taste is light on alcohol but fairly rich and malty. One of my current faves. An extremely delicious and affordable brew.
