look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

On tap at The Ginger Man. Wheat aroma. Pale yellow cidery colour with some lace. Nicely drinkable, a bit astringent citrus, even some hop but also well malted finish.Subtle spice: corriander. Refreshing summer beer. Mineral water carbonation, average or above mouthfeel.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Pours a hazy sunny yellow with a faint orange hue right in the middle of the glass. A few stray bubbles coming up lazily from the bottom. Fat off white head of soft creamy foam that fell too slow and left great lace and a chunky cap and thick ring. Lace clinging to the glass. Nose is sweet and delicious citrus, light sweet lemon and floral. Pale grain with a touch of dry sugar and soft spice. Sharp and enticing. Taste is muddled. The lemon is tart and juicy but the wheat never shows up to offset with it's tall golden dryness. Floral and a touch of hop bitter on the back palate. The bread is light and carries the beer to a a finish that is a little puckering. The dry wheat starts to show up a little as ti warmed but the enticing sweetness was left in the nose. Aftertaste is a little sour.

The nose was crisp, the drink was not. Ill defined on the palate the flavors were all mushed together. The carbonation was ample and refreshed with each turn of the glass. The grain reminded me of toasted malt and even it had a sour aftertaste. It left you feeling like there was a big difference between the nose and the palate.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

On tap at New York Wine and Culinary Center in Canandaigua, NY.

Pours pale yellow, with a half inch head, and a little bit of lacing down the glass.

Smells like wheat, lemon, and some spicing.

For a hoppy wheat ale, this one doesn't feel all that hoppy, more just like a standard wheat beer. A bit disappointing. Tastes a bit soapy, with some citrus flavors, and a bit of wheat bitterness.

Light bodied, creamy mouthfeel, medium carbonation.

Not one of Captain Lawrence's better offerings, unfortunately.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A- light golden yellow, little bit of haze but otherwise pretty transparent. Less than one finger of white head

S- bready malts, piney hops, citrus fruits.

T- bready malts upfront followed by some grapefruit citrus notes, leading into a slight piney hop presence. Finishes bready with a slight bitterness from the hops. Subtle spices in their as well.

M- light, slightly carbonated. Doughy

O- overall this was a very nice beer from capt larry. It is there new summer seasonal and I got it in NY before it was available in CT. Very well balanced wit. The bready notes really take over but the slight hop flavors really balance it out well.
