A huge thanks to Dan (Dslim71) for this great extra. Cheers buddy! I understand this is just newly put into bottles so I believe I am one of the first to review them as such.

Appearance – Pours into a tulip with a dark hay transparent color. About a finger of slightly off white head is achieved with a moderate pour that dissipates somewhat slowly leaving slight lacing.

Smell – Lots of herbal grassy notes, clove, slight banana and other fruit esters such as pear and green apple, characteristic Belgian yeasts, and ends with a maltiness.

Taste – Taste is yeasts up front with white pepper and clove. Next comes the fruits and cice grassy almost medicinal flavors which later on then mix with a slight caramel backbone and more spices. Finishes with a hint of bubblegum flavor which I normally do not pick up in other Belgian’s.

Mouthfeel – Medium bodied, plentiful carbonation that gives a slight prickle, finishes a hint dry.

Overall – Actually I enjoyed this and I’m not a huge Belgian beer fan. I like the almost over spiced quality and that this took precedent to the Belgian yeasts. The fruity esters and flavors were also quite nice. An enjoyable beer.

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.
