This is just great beer. Something refreshingly different. It may be a little sweet for some but for me it makes for a great session beer. Just enough hoppy bitterness to react well with the sweet flavor. This is the best beer I have had from lagunitas so far. It hides the 7.5% abv almost to well.

12 ounce bottle, bottled on June 16, Consumed July 9 2011.

Little Sumpin' Sumpin' pours out a golden amber with a thin half inch head. Scent is apricot, wheat, mango, pineapple, orange and grapefruit. Taste is predominately apricot and wheat with some lemon dropping in on the finish and lingering around. Mouthfeel is velvety-smooth. Outasight! Overall, a very smooth and drinkable pale wheat ale despite the ABV. One of my go-to six pack purchases along with Racer 5.
