3.59/5  rDev -6.3%

A - Pours yellow gold with a small head that quickly dissipates

S - Fruity and spicy esters, with hints of apples and some bubblegum. It does smell a bit musty and stale.

T- Similar to the smell. Dry and spicy with hints of banana, bubblegum, and apple. I'm still getting that musty stale flavor as well which is disappointing.

M - A thin slightly watery body with sharp prickly carbonation

Overall a pretty good example of a BPA. Crisp and refreshing but the mustiness is throwing me off.

Fresh growler, picked up at the brewery today. Pours light golden almost clear with a slight but long lasting tiny bubble white head, leaves minor splotchy lacing after a vigorous swirl. Nose is of limes, pepper and Belgian yeast. This is an easy drinking, Belgian single/golden inspired ale. Notes of more citrus, especially lime, quinine and pepper. Crisp and refreshing, packs a punch at 6%. Moderate hops till a subtle dryness arrives in the finish. A delicate, complex, and well crafted ale from the newest player in the NY craft beer scene. Looking foward to trying other styles from Capt. L.!

On tap at Bar Americain in NYC.

Had no idea what I was getting when I tried this one, actually thought it was an IPA at first because of the great hoppy flavor, but realised that it was so much more after a few sips. Really smooth and complex flavor with an excellent aroma and delicate head.

12oz bottle poured into a tulip.

A: Pours a clear light golden yellow with a 1 finger white head. Lots of visible carbonation in the body. No real lacing.

S: First thing that I notice is a banana like yeast characteristic. Has a farmhouse or saison sort of a pale malting to it. Certainly has a belgian twist to it.

T: Light banana and a nice belgian yeastiness. One of the better American attempts at a Belgian style. Focuses on the yeast and it comes through. Well balanced, moderate hopping with a sweet malt finish.

M: Fairly light on the tongue but still creamy in mouthfeel. Bit of a booze bite but not much. Easy drinking, good finish certainly has some authenticity.

Overall another tasty Captain Lawrence, been impressed with everything from them so far. Recommended to any belgian fans.
