Lil sumpin' wild appears to be a burnt yellow color with some head and lines of lacing.

Really pleasant fruity nose with hoppy citrus, pear, mealy apples, pineapple, slightly phenolic.

Really well balanced between American hops and Belgian yeast. More pear fruitiness and esters with some tropical flavors, pine, shy bitterness and dryness.

Nicely carbonated, sticky, quite drinkable.

A fine representation of the style.

On tap at Acme Bar and Pizza in Rochester, NY.

Pours a hazy orange. Enormous head signifies the Belgian ties this beer has. Nice lacing.

Smells like orange rinds, citrus zest, grapefruit, and Belgian yeast.

Similar flavor- the big hop bite and bitterness is undercut by the classic Westmalle yeast strain- a cross between an IPA and tripel. Lightly funky, with some grass and pear tastes. Mildly sour.

Medium bodied, and crisp. Could be a little drier, but I don't expect this style to be that dry.

Another great hoppy offering from Lagunitas. Would like to get this again.
