Notes / Commercial Description:
This is a beer that will make you rethink your definition of beer. It doesn’t taste like any beer you’ve ever had, yet it doesn’t taste like anything else either. Pushing the limits of brewing is what makes this job so much fun. Malted barley, wild yeast, hand picked Muscat Grapes, and French oak wine barrels are just a few of the things that wen into crafting this beer. Breathe deep, take a long sip, and enjoy the creation in your hand.

Decided to open a bottle of Batch 3 tonight poured into some Lost Abbey stemware.

Pours a cloudy golden color with a wimpy bit of white head forming after a careful pour. Leaves spotty lacing.

Grape skins, lemon zest, barnyard, still a bit buttery. Nice brett character but you can tell it isnt full developed yet. Very good level of acidity and tartness that doesn't overwhelm the brilliant subtleties that are also hiding in the background.

The moderate acidity and appropriate level of carbonation make this a real treat to drink.

I have had batch 2 a few times recently and really like how it is drinking now. I would love to get my hands on a bottle of it to try side by side with the batch 3 as it develops. The batch 2 has a much more developed brett character right now and just tastes more 'complete'. I can't wait until the batch 3 gets there. This review describes the current characteristics of batch 3 but has a quantitative evaluation of batch 2 and 3 combined.

Looks like I will be the first person to review batch 4.

A: It pours a slightly cloudy but very vibrant golden hue with a nice level of white carbonation that quickly fades. Some rising carbonation no lacing.

S: Nice oak presence that also provides a little a solid earthy funkiness and. There is also a very prevalent fruit note, grape, that gives this a very wine like aroma. Some lemon notes and a bit of mustiness.

T: Very fruity with a citrus lemon and green apple notes upfront followed by sour grape notes. Very nice tartness that makes me pucker a little bit. Some hints of vanilla and some earthy wood notes.

M: There is a fair amount of acidity, but this one isnt had to sip at all. Its a bit like drinking lemonade. There is a slight bit of heat

D: Way to easy to drink and quite refreshing because of all the fruitiness. I really look forward to trying this one down the road to see how it ages

Batch 3

Ommegang flute hybrid glass. Had it in place of white wine with my flounder.

Sparkling, clear pale gold color with just a spritz of head. Can't help but yeast it up a little with my second pour though, turning it a towards a murky mellow gold, a bit like watered down grapefruit juice.

Smell is full with apricots, unripened peaches, melon, & soured cider. It has a bit of that Cantillon bite in the nose. A bit musty like ice wine, but more familiar & less appealing, with traces of spoiled milk & rubbing alcohol.

Taste is dominated by tangy & sharp fruit. Unripened pineapple, more peaches, & hard green grapes. Middle in it turns slightly bitter with lettuce, then slightly buttery. Finish has lots of similarities to spontaneously fermented scrumpy cider. Last call on the finish is a drag of gooey dough & yeast.

Carbonation is pretty nice, & the alcohol is decently hidden by the sharp fruit notes. It's gets your palate salivating for more appetizers when drank in tight sips.

Overall, a bit more mellow & less sour then previous batches I feel. Maybe less complex, but certainly easier to drink, which is a shame because of the price & bottle limit. I can't exactly remember how this tasted fresh, aside from a little less oxidation, & more snap in my tongue. I do remember licking my lips a bit more back at the release. Aging this bottle hasn't really made me say "wow". I wouldn't hold on to these expecting anything better in the long term.

Pours a cloudy yellow color with an audible popping from the carbination that fades after a few seconds, leaving no head or lacing.
Aroma contains a complex but faint weave of light fruits such as Pear, White Grapes, funk, oak, and earthy raw nuts.
Once you tip your glass back is when the Lemon takes over. There is a big lemon slice note that is accented by granny smith apples and kiwi. Some of the funk and oak comes through here also.
This one has that desireable tartness but it isn't one of the strongest in terms of sour, just a moderate clean finishing Wild Ale.

This bottle was split between my Wife and Myself, repeatedly poured into 3oz snifters, over the course of 30min.

A great beer, wish i was able to get it often. But that is how it goes living in the midwest and liking sours.

Batch 4

Poured into a Rock Art tulip glass. A big, fizzy, head forms at first, but rapidly fades away without a trace. The body is a pale, golden-yellow. Looks nice, but I'd like to see a little bit of head or lacing.

Musty oak barrels with a bit of barnyard funk rise up from the glass. Somewhat yeasty in aroma with bready malts and lemon citrus. Juicy golden apples. Very nice.

Tart apples mix with a bit of yeast funk in the flavor. Zinfandel wine characteristics from the muscat grapes. Light oak presence and slightly acidic. Lots of tartness and very light alcohol.

Mouthfeel is smooth with crisp tartness. Light, spritzy carbonation, some acidity and faint warming alcohol. Almost slightly creamy at times, like blue cheese consistency.

This is a very drinkable wild ale. The bottle disappeared much too quickly and the ABV is essentially unnoticeable. The flavor is quite juicy, tart and well balanced. Probably the best golden American wild I have had alongside Temptation. This beer is really just a treat to drink. I highly recommend seeking out a bottle if you can. Great balance, flavor and tartness. Nice work Captain Lawrence.

"A frolic, then?"

She
speaks in a timid whisper, just the type of sweet
that we learn to adore
or despise,
depending upon the speaker.
This one, though, I adore more than any,
and cannot help but crack a smile at her whimperish lips as she makes believe to be a princess of old.

"Of course, my love."
So we meander
a white/orange morning with simply a small ring of cotton around the edge...
a misty, foggy, cloudy morning.
As we traipse along through the tall weeds and listen
to the crushing of fresh grass and ripe fruit
underfoot, we take in the aromas:

peach, first of all, overwhelming the white cheddar, earth, and lemon. Somewhere underneath it all is a deep sour-bitter and a faint hop note.
"Mmmm... I always love these mornings."
I smile assent and glance knowingly at her, feigning disinterest, or at least distractedness.
"Are you even listening to me honey?"
"Of course, love. You said that the flavour
is far sweeter than the aroma, with a pronounced peach note and a finish of light syrup notes and a slight oak-sour. You wish
it were a bit more complex and not as cloying, the sour doesn't balance as much as you'd prefer, as much as the truly world class examples of the style."

"I suppose you're right. It wasn't what I meant

though

and that's what matters."

"Well then, what did you mean?"
"Oh, I don't know. It's not what I expected. A lot more

mild
dry
and astringent in the mouthfeel.

I guess..."
"You just expected more."
"Yes, I suppose so. But it's alright darling. I'm with you."
"That you are, dear. You'd bettern't forget."
I wink at her through my pretentious improper use of English, and
She smiles back at me
and squeezes my hand
as we continue through the field and enjoy one another.

Batch 3

A - Poured with a thinner slightly off-white head that dissipated very quickly; light peachy orange color; very hazy

S - Sour and vinegary at first; definitely pick up on the tart grapiness; faint bit of light fruit sweetness; bit barnyard as well

T - Definitely sour; like unripened grapes; vinegary acidity; smooths out with some doughiness; just a touch funky

M - Lighter MF overall, nice carbonation, puckering (pleasantly) finish

D - Damn good drinking as it is a very interesting brew, and a lot of fun to drink. The abv is definitely a little higher against some others I've had in the style, but not bothersome to me at least.

Overall, this is a really great brew. Interesting, fun, and overall a nice drink. I'm anxious to see what this looks like in a year or two. Highly recommended.

Another goodie brought out by Dyan for our Graduation Tasting! Very, very appreciated!

A: Very surprised at how light this was. The lightest colored sour I have ever had. Pours a light yellow, almost lemon juice colored with an absolutely white head. Very spritzy and carbonated.

S: The smell on this was incredible. Very, very tart lemon juice, dry oak, lemon soaked white grapes, nice chardonnay and other tart, light fruits.

T: The taste did not hold up to the smell. It was good. Very good, but just did not hold up to the other sours I've had. Like my buddy Deuane mentioned, it tasted like a light lemon spritzer. Great flavor and highly drinkable, just light and not as complex.

Overall, thanks again to Dyan for this excellent sour!

Edit: Had batch 2 and it has really blossomed. The sour funk really picked up and the complexity increased. Great stuff.

Most recent batch poured into a tulip.

Soft cream colored yellow with just a ring of foam that dissipates quickly after a few sips. Some chill haze to the beverage, with some spotty bubble dancing to the top.

Sharp acidic aroma to this with hints of fruit like green apples and muscat grapes. A bit of white wine and barrel as well, but over all it is a very sour smelling beer.

Unripe grape juice and lemon juice on the tongue at first then moves into a sweeter fruit like flavor with some vinous notes. Delicious stuff.

Sticky at first with a little bit of drying on the finish, medium bodied and a tingle of carbonation.

Great use of the muscat grapes in a wild ale. Glad to have tried this one, it did not disappoint.

Finally got to try this highly hyped Beer, apparently it took quite some effort for my good friend to secure a bottle.

Appearance: Lemonade colored with just about no head, it turned a bit more orangey and opaque when I got a refill.

Smell: Lavander and litchi fruit, the kind you usually find in a nice dessert white wine - I've seen it in ice cider as well - but with a interesting horseblanket backdrop that is just enough to please lambic lovers without scaring off those who don't.

Taste: Fabulously intense acidity, almost lime-like with a bit of mandarine oranges. The carbonation levels and flavor reminds me of Federweisser, a partially fermented white wine served in the Franconian region. Lots of lemon rind twang that dries up the back of your tongue. Wine geeks would wet their panties over this one, it really didn't dissapoint.

I have been craving a "sour" all week and finally decided to crack this one open while watching the King and crew destroy the Pistons. Batch #2 poured into a tulip glass.

A- Pours a golden straw yellow with very little clarity. Almost has a murky, mustard appearance. Solid two fingers width of white head forms, but literally dissipates within seconds of forming.

S- Nowhere near as complex as the taste. Hints of vinous, sour grapes a plenty mixed with oak and spices. The aroma just seemed too monotone to me. I wished it had a little more variance and character.

T- Wow! Flat out awesome! Talk about balance within a style of beer. From the get go, the beer gives the impression that this will be one sour beer. From the initial taste on the tip of the tongue and midway through, the beer seems to operate on two levels. At the forefront, there is a strong combination of sour grapes, lemon zest and spices. As the sourness builds, an undertone of oak and wood follow. Just before the beer reaches a mouth puckering intensity, the acidic flavors are counter balanced with the a bretty yeast for a perfect balanced flavor.

M- Light to medium bodied with some carbonation. Left a semi-dry feeling in the mouth.

D- The balanced flavor and delicious taste easily mask the 8% abv. I consumed a 750 mL bottle with ease.

Overall, huge thanks to Alex (BeerWorld) for my first in-person trade in which I acquired this excellent beer. Honestly this was one of the best beers I have ever had. Don't let the low marks for appearance fool you. This is a sour worthy of trying.

Murky pastel yellow, with copious foam at first that settled and stuck around for awhile. Floral nose, fragrant lavender or chamomile, various spices, lime zest, and orange juice. Dry tart feel, zippy with a little grape sweetness. Earthy coriander. Reminds me of a sour blend of orange juice and sprite I used to make as a kid. The dry spritz just evaporates on the tongue, very clean and tasty. This brew really seems to showcase the herbs/spice with a nice orange/lemon-lime compliment.

375 ml bottle poured into a Darkness snifter.

Batch 4

A- One finger white bubbly head that dissipates quickly, decent lacing on the sides, nice retention, clear golden straw color, decent carbonation.
S- Really nice, sour, brett, really nice grape skin presence, pears, lemon citrus, white grapes.
T- Wow really smooth as well as puckering, not too puckering though really balanced, nice grape skin taste, brett is present, some green apple, pear, lemon, barnyard funk, slight oak, really tasty and easy drinking.
M- Medium/light mouth feel, decent carbonation, slightly puckering, sour, clean finish.
O- Really impressed with this beer, this is a quality and easy drinking sour, really smooth and tasty.

Thanks a million to jdmek9 for this incredible beer. I cracked it open to celebrate the end of LSATs forever! 500mL batch #3-enjoyed in a flute.

A: A pour straight down the middle results in a quick fizzy white head. It dissipates quickly and there's no retention. The ale is a really cloudy golden color, varying in dark-light shades.
S: Stinky feet, horses, tart fruits with an emphasis on bitter lemon. Pretty clean and straightforward.
T: Similar to the aroma, but subtle. Very bitter fruits, with that lovely sour warhead flavor. The sour doesn't have the biggest kick, though, and I was really hoping for that! It's earthy, grassy, stinky, but still very clean for a sour. The residuals are surprisingly sweet, with the funky lemon turning into tart white grapes.
M: Medium carbonation and medium body, with tons of shifting residuals linger behind. They range from sour to sweet, and back again.
D: I really enjoyed this one. Thanks, Jason, for letter me crack this open on a very special day!

Big thanks to corby112 for this bottle, poured into my white birch glass. Celebrating the end of another term with this beer, cheers. The beer pours a hazy straw color with an effervescent glow around the edges. There is a thin cap of white foam that leaves no lacing.

The smell is tart apples, sour grapes, oaky wood notes and lemon zest. There is also a musty sourness that rears it's head throughout the scent.

The flavors match the smell well, tart apples, sour grapes and a healthy dose of citrus sour funk. There is a slight oak flavor that complements all the sour and crisp citrus notes.

The beer is light bodied and only slightly carbonated, but the crisp and sharp flavors and dry finish make this beer insanely drinkable. The sour grape flavor is intense at first, but it is so well balanced it makes this beer incredibly drinkable. I wish I had another.

Batch 1:
Bright yellow color with quickly receding white head, little lacing. Aroma has lemon, oak, somewhat acidic, pineapple, and some chardonnay. Taste is quite acidic, but full of interesting flavors like oak, lemon, hay, chardonnay, and pineapple. Very dry and light on the palate with fairly high carbonation. A very, very good sour.

Batch 2: Yellow with a white head that dissipates fairly quickly, leaving no lacing. Oak in the aroma, along with some lemon and other citrus aromas. Not very intense, rather delicate, but interesting and well done. White wine taste, lemon tartness, oak, peaches, and maybe a hint of apricot. Medium carbonation and light body, finish is fairly dry. Not nearly as sour as the first batch, but it has nice flavors and is still a nice sour. 4 - 9 - 9 - 4 - 17 = 4.3

Batch 002

It pours almost no head with a carbonation like soda pop and a clear yellow color. The smell is slightly sour with some white wine characteristics and dry bouquet. Taste is a dry white wine with some subtle sour flavors in the background. Still a good mouthfeel with carbonation not overpowering, but giving a good soft acidity. Overall, it's pretty easy to drink as it's a good palate refresher and easily should pair with intense food flavors.

Shared a bottle with Douroguy...provided by him, thanks dude!! a slow gusher...be careful! Served at cellar temp. Poured from a 375ml bottle into a small tasting glass. Pours a clear golden/straw color. A very little bit of head rises and dissapears quickly! No lacing to speak of.

Wow! I can smell this beer from the other side of the room! Huge funk and tartness. Oak, spices, and grape aromas. This is one of the best smelling sours out there!

Flavor is good...but not as crazy as I expected. A good sour, but doesn't stand out like I wanted it to. With that said, it's still top notch. The sour grape flavors add a great characteristic to this beer...with a slight dry finish. The obvious sour/tart funk is right on key...and very clean and crisp. Picked up a slight oak-iness throughout as well. Body is light with medium to low carbonation. Overall, a very solid sour from Captain Lawrence...a must try!

Sampled thanks to some generosity at Capone's (not sure who poured this but thanks!).

Appearance: Hazy golden with no head.

Smell: Nice sour funky aroma. Very tart lemony and earthy nose.

Taste: Very acidic and sour. Nice flavors of grape, funky Brett and even some oak.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied and dry.

Drinkability: I was very lucky to get to try this one here. I was impressed with the overall sourness and it really was a great beer. I would definitely seek this one out again.

I enjoyed Flaming Fury more.

The appearance is a very hazy gold with little to no head. Come on, give me some head! It has some bubbles that are produced with an aggressive pour, but other than that nothing. It has some great leg on it though, coats the entire glass with great ABV leg.

The smell is of grapes, sour funky yeast, crisp white wine, and grapes. Very vinous, delicious smell.

The taste is much like the smell but with more complexity. It has a strong white grape and orange rind taste. It is nicely tart and has some wet barnyard characters. It reminded me of this one wine tour I did in Mendoza, Argentina. Earthy, sweet wine, and must, really interesting characters that were intensified after a rain, just superb.

The mouthfeel is good, but could be carbonated a little more. The yeast on the bottom provided the most flavor, which is something I am starting to learn the more sours I drink. Tart and astringent, this was a treat.

A - Hazy golden yellow with a big, short lived whitish head. Tons of lacing.

S - Sweet candy-like pilsner malts, tropical fruits (pineapples and more), big funky barnyard. Light acidic tartness.

F/M - Huge funky barnyard, medium acidic tartness. Sweet malts and tons of tropical fruits (pineapples and mangoes) and a little bit of a white grape flavor. Low bitterness, medium body and moderately high carbonation. Clean dry finish.

D - Great. This is an excellent beer, world class for sure. Dry, fruity, funky, sour, flavorful and very well balanced.

I could tell as soon as I poured this one that it was going to be an immediate favorite. Very quickly fading head, yet remains effervescent looking. Very clear, very hay yellow like apple juice. Smells crazy good. Oak, white grapes and lemon faint horse blanket; I can imagine a small amount of spice coming through, coriander I believe. The flavor is more tart than sour. Lemony and grassy with some horse blanket flavor coming through, but just a little. There is a real chardonnay quality to this beer and a clear grape and sour green apple thing going on. Mouth feel is perfect for the style, a little buttery and a little prickly reminds me of a geuze. It is so sad that this beer is so limited because I could drink tones of it.

Thanks to alcstradamus for another amazing brew.

375mL poured into Chimay chalice.

A- Pours a pale straw yellow with a nice haze to it. Absolutely no head on the beer. With no head comes no lacing left behind.

S- A little bit of Belgian yeast and some wild yeast as well. Sour grapes, almost liken to a sparkling wine, which makes sense after reading the bottle.

T- More of a subdued flavor than the nose. The Belgian yeast is present and the grapes are barely even noticeable. A little bit of lemon zest round this one out.

M- Lighter bodied, dry on the finish and not very much carbonation. I was hoping this would be a little more crisp.

D- Decent body but not too complex. The flavors aren't very deep or pronounced and not really all that sour.

Pours a clear, golden color with an appearance similar to Champagne. Bubbles are quickly streaming up the glass and popping on top with no head except a thin fizz that disappears completely.

Aroma is full of tart fruits, including white grape skins and green apples. There is a slight oaky wood aroma to round it out, but I still found it a bit one-dimensional.

Flavor is tart with a tight, effervescent profile. The sourness is gentle at this point, reminding me of under ripe fruit. It could dry out a bit, as the fruit profile seems almost artificial. It's as if grape juice was added to the beer, rather than being an integral component.

Not one of my favorite pale sours, but it may be better after more time in the cellar.

Batch 3. Nice pop and poured into a RR BA stem. Somewhat fizzy with a nice white head that quickly dissipates into the golden liquid. Slight chill haze with bubbles rising from the bottom like a glass of champagne.

Arom of currants, lite funk, sour grapes and a hint of phenol.

Little prick up front and nicely sweet on the nose with peach and grapes. Very smooth with all the elements in there- sour/tart/funk. Sour hits me on the sides of tongue and does not overwhelm. Oak hidden very nicely and felt in the back. Fizzy yet low in acidity. Finishes dry and very pleasant.

In the realm of American Wild Ales, I really enjoyed CdT. VERY smooth and a treat to drink.
