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

A - pours a deep brown color with rosey red highlights. Not much in the way of foam. Light tan in color and just a bit under a fingers worth which quickly dissipates to a film.

S - the nose is nuanced and elegant. Grape-y with lots of other tart fruit character. Hints of raspberries and strawberries. A distinct brett character blends with a red wine vinegar note for complexity.

T - smooth malty flavors on the tip of the tongue. Dark bread, with slight hints of toffee. Sour fruit flavors evolve in the center with notes of grapes and tart berries. Prickly brett notes enter more on the backend which carries though the long sour finish.

M - slick textured. Medium bodied. Medium low carbonation.

O - interesting wild ale. If i had to guess i would think the carbonation will subside over time making this even more wine like. I've got a few bottles to test theory in a few years.

Shared a bottle with my wife, pours red a deep red, very nice. The nose is tart apples, cherries and oak. The taste is very pleasant not over the top, in the sour category, tart and slight Brett funk, . The back is oak and a nice berry flavor. My wife loves this beer, it is nice

12.7 oz bottle, batch 4, poured into a tulip glass.

A- Pours a murky ruby / brown color, produces a finger of tan head, decent retention and spotty lacing.

S- Tart acidity, musty funk, earth, some fruitiness and oak.

T- Moderate lactic tartness, red grapes, cherry, as well as oak and a bit of sweetness.

M- Medium-bodied, moderate carbonation, smooth feel, very dry.

O- A very tasty sour, the booze is literally invisible, I would never have guessed it was as strong as it is. Captain Lawrence has really been hitting the acidity perfectly too, although this doesn't have the same level of complexity as Cuvee de Castleton, it's still a really good beer.

A: Pours a deep ruby brown. No discernible head.

S: Nice acetic notes, malt sweetness, tannic oak and hints of vanilla.

T: Creamy malt sweetness up front, oak tannins and slight acetic tartness as it coats the tongue. Mild sourness lingers after each sip. Mellow, balanced and not overwhelming. Very unlike the past few CL sour beers I've tasted.

M: Medium-bodied, but very uncarbonated. Not necessarily a bad thing with the style, drinks like a wine.

O: A nice American Oud Bruin. More mellow than I'd like. I'm a fan of CL sours for their big oak and acid punch. Hopefully the acidity picks up on this one over time.

A. Pours auburn with a small off-white head.

S. Fruity acetic nose. Apple skin, currants and cherry, vinous, a bit of caramel.

T. Tart grapes, vinous tannins, toffee, plum. The acidity is quite mild, with the malt character shining through.

M. Medium-bodied with light carbonation.

O. A nice, mild oud bruin. I was expecting something a little more acidic but nonetheless this was quite pleasant to drink.
