Purchased 2 growlers from the brewery today . Pours a light copper into my La Fin Dumonde tulip. Creamy white 2 finger head, minimal lacing.

Smells of citrisy orange with some yeast.

Tastes of spice mixed with orange and lemon. Reminds me of a heffe or wit beer yet with a very slight bitterness. Absolutely yummy!

Feels medium bodied in the mouth

I can drink this all day or night. A great beer for a summer bbq or a nice fish dinner.

Great Job Captain Lawrence!

3.46/5  rDev -9.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from bottle into snifter

Appearance- pours a hazy gold with a short, creamy, bubbly head which recedes quickly and leaves some minor lacing.

Aroma- faint spice and citrus, bready, yeasty

Feel- medium, oily, little carbonation tingle, and finishes crisp but very smooth

Taste- taste follows the nose, to a degree- less malty, more spicy/citrusy with a hint of banana towards the end

Overall- This being my first beer in the Belgian style realm, i liked it a lot. It's not that heavy of a beer and very drinkable. That being said, it isn't too complex, which I believe makes it good for those who want to get into Belgian style ales.

Got to try on tap fresh from the brewery the other day and I thought it was very nice. The appearance was a hazy yellow with a decent head. The smell had a lot of wheat and banana to it. The taste was similar with great notes of banana, and even a little bit of spice. The feel of the beer was a little light but refreshing in the heat. Would definitely get again.

On tap at Magpie Irish Pub in Rochester, NY.

Pours an extraordinarily clear straw yellow, with a half inch head, and no lacing.

Smells like banana, clove, and Belgian yeast esters.

The taste is similar. It doesn't particularly bad, per se, but the banana and yeast flavors are just a little bit too much, and overpower any spices the beer claims to have. There's a little bit of clove, but it's just a banana story, like it was a hefeweizen, not a Belgian Pale Ale. Just falls slightly short in execution.

Light bodied, crisp, smooth mouthfeel, fairly drinkable.

A little bit of a miss here from CL.
