Very excited to finally crack one of these babies open. Batch 5 into a Lost Abbey tulip. Golden straw color poured aggressively, yielding no head. Regardless, carbonation bubbles are rushing up from the bottom. Nose is filled with lots of funk, vinous/white grape, slight woodyness, a bit of soft floral tones, and finishes with lemon peel. The tongue follows to a generous degree, funky, lemon peel, subtle vinous (almost like a white wine), and sour green grapes. Pretty strong burst of carbonation in the beer itself, goes well with the sourness. Overall, my gosh. I think the complexity of this is great. I get so many flavors, it is hard to land them all. I have one more b5, and will surely sit on it till b6 comes around and do a side-by. Thanks CLBC!

very cool blonde sour from captain lawrence. this brew pours a very pale almost clear shade of yellow with the faintest purple tint from the grapes, nearly imperceptible, not quite as much head as i would like. fruity aromatic with some strong acidic notes. oaky and sour for sure, but very interesting from a yeast standpoint, lots of brett has dried this right out. some very light malt and straw cereal properties, and the grapes are only subtle, contributing more of a tannic vibe than real fruit flavor. insanely light body and well enough carbonated, this is rather easy drinking as sours go, a very delicately put together and well balanced brew. would be curious to try some with a little age on it.
