So I have had this beer before but I never had the opportunity to take it home until last night. Whole Foods at Bowery just put in a growler station and I only paid $8.99 for the jug.
This is the first glass out of the growler and here comes the review.
A- Bright vibrant gold color, lots of bubbles rising very slowly, and anice thin white head.
S- Fruity and spicy esters from the yeast combined with a tiny bit of alcohol. Light crisp hops a bit of citrus and a bit of herbally plant, and hints of sugar.
T- Light and crisp with a slightly bitter alcoholic finish. The Hops are dominant but not overpowering giving me more of the light citrus, and herbaly plants....a hint of spice accompanies the alcohol in the finish, and leaves you with a nice lingering flavor.
M/D- this is the first time I have actually really felt that a belgian could be a response to a pils...Although heavier in the body than a pils. This is a great beer, and for the alcohol (although not too high) very light.

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.
