Bottle purchased at AJ's Beer Warehouse in Rochester, NY.

This one pours a very light yellow, with a small head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells like sour peach, a little bit of white wine vinegar, and wet oak.

This isn't quite the best fruited sour that Captain Lawrence makes. It's a little bit vinegary, with lots of white wine, a moderate level of peach, damp oak, and a nice level of lacto sour. It's pretty sour.

This is light bodied, a bit slick and "wet" feeling, with a good level of carbonation.

This was pretty enjoyable, but not their best.

On tap at American Sardine Bar.
Hazy golden-orange pour, effervescent, with a thin ring of bubbles on top. Grainy aroma, light peaches, and somewhat sulfuric. In the taste, sour grains, fresh-cut wood, dry fragrant leaves, sulfur, light peachy yogurt. Light body with some acidic crispness. Not bad, but not really great either.

Had on tap at Walrus + Carpenter in Bridgeport into an Allagash glass. Nice clear amber gold liquid with a small head that fades pretty quickly.

Very tart aroma, good sweetness with some wine like notes, bit of peach. Flavor wise has a good tart blast upfront, malt sweetness in the middle, some peach flesh here. Finishes tart with some vinuous notes, hint of oak.

Nice sour, walked in not knowing what this beer was and enjoyed it, not overwhelmed. Peach was a bit subdued and wasn't overly sour. Good balance.

Comes in a mixture of yellow and orange, with a head that barely forms and just as quickly vanishes. Aroma was heavy on the lemon and orange citrus tart sour notes. A tad bit of oak.

Very acidic, very citrusy sour notes, more oak envelopes the palate. The alcohol is noticeable but not distracting. Some wet grass/hay notes. Some plastic funk. This is a sour one, and it burns, hence the flaming fury name I guess.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: Crystal clear hay/orange pour with a minimal fizzy head which dies immediately.
S: Nose is very oaky, with notes of citruses and peaches, some funk and underlying notes of spices and orange peels. Oak and white wine dominate the scent.
T: Very sour with a bright acidity. Tons of wood and vinous flavours. Unfortunately also some light but distinctive acetone. The fruit is not so prominent though still there. Earth, grass and hay also come through but the aftertaste is mainly focused on oak and wine.
M: Fine carbonation, medium body. Alcohol warmth on the back of the throat.
O: I expected something more fruity, but the high level of sourness and complexity makes this beer something well drinkable despite noticeable alcohol. Good but not great.

12.7 oz bottle......Thanks to Cam for hitting my oldest want on BA...awesome buddy!

Loads of peaches, touch of sulfur and acetone that lingers and becomes distracting...grainy, acetic, long linger.
