Captain Lawrence Brewing Co.
New York, United States

Notes / Commercial Description:
Light golden in color, but packed with flavor. This Belgo-American Ale is bursting with the spicy aromas and flavors created by the unique imported yeast strain. Fermented at higher temperatures, this beer throws off notes of clove, banana and citrus fruit. Light in color but big on flavor.

Pours a fairly thin head of bone white, mostly tiny bubbles which dissolve off swiftly, the lacing likewise close to nonexistent. The liquid is a shimmeringly bright yellow, fully transparent, only a few bubble beads but these are highly active. Very expressive nose of banana, strawberry, apple fruit, clove and cinnamon, bubblegum and all kinds of general yeastiness, undercurrent of powdered milk chocolate, here too it is pure and unblemished, preferring a spring to its step than grounding itself firmly. Light to medium-bodied, fluid with a sort of metallic ring to it at first which makes the attack somewhat bitter. The carbonation churns steadily and agitates more than let’s the underlying creaminess take hold. White pepper and lemon peel beat the clove, nutmeg, allspice to the punch. Eventually turns more resinous in feel which brings out more yellow apple, peach, banana, melon fruit. That cocoa maltiness persists. A lot going on retronasally. Lower yeast presence, more unbaked dough than bread or scone, etc. and certainly outpaced by the grassy nip. Overall, it’s pleasing to quaff, guileless and simple to the verge of innocence. You’d lose interest after a couple of dates.

Poured from a twelve ounce bottle into a pint glass.

Pours clear see through golden hued. Very little foam remains. Belgian yeast strain nose. Light fruit. Taste is smooth, yet bitter. Firm hoppiness throughout but balanced into the mix. Firm carbonation in the mixture. This is a good beer. Deceptively simple.

12 oz bottle into a tulip glass

Bubbly with loads of effervescence and a bright golden color.

Hard to pick up much scent despite agitation with some slight yeast

The mouthfeel is pretty thin, but I do appreciate the carbonation.

Not a lot of flavor coming through. I just don't pick up the Belgian in this one.

Clear pale golden with no head. The nose is pure bubblegum with a hint of hops and artificial smelling fruity esters. The taste has a honey sweetness and of course bubblegum, some white grape. This is a beer that definitely improves as it warms. The mouthfeel is light bodied and drinkable, slightly bitter with a honey sweetness. This beer was a bit of a disappointment and drinks like a strangely flavored lager.
