Lagunitas Brewing Company Little Sumpin’ Wild

Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.

Tonight’s featured beer is Lagunitas Brewing Company Little Sumpin’ Wild. I believe I have amply sung the praises of Lagunitas Brewing Company in past posts, so I’ll just get onto the review.

From the Lagunitas Brewing Company website: “Another Big Sister of the Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’ Ale.... Loads of Malted Wheat for a Curious Malt Foundation and a Light Color, But Our Belgian Yeast Leaves a Huge Flavor and Complexishness.”

Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a golden reddish amber with a slightly off white head, excellent retention and lacing.
Aroma: Wonderful bread notes with sweet malts and yeast. Amazing citrus fruit hops and lighter pine and floral hops. This beer smells incredible.
Taste: Great flavor – balanced and complex with floral and citrus hops up front and a slight malt sweetness back end.
Overall: At 9.4% ABV this beer is WAY too easy to knock back. Since its release I have picked up numerous six packs and will continue to do so until they’re out. Complex, smooth and extremely drinkable, pick some up. You’ll be glad you did!
