Lukaduke (2948) - Gray, Maine, USA - OCT 6, 2013
Great bottle ! Pours a rusty brown with a finger of gaseous eggshell colored foam. Great complex notes of spicy cherry pie, sweet vinous notes and some boozy wood character. The palate follows with a beautiful rustic cherry pie fullness enhanced by tart sour notes of vinous fruit and well balanced barrel influence. A real treat to drink !

PhillyCraft (5489) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Brand new, limited release from CL. Bottle shared with Frank and Bill, compliments of Bill. Pours a murky cranberry red, not much lacing or head present. Notes of dark cherry, strong cinnamon, oak, light vinegar, wine, grapes, and very light rust, Reminded me of a new glarus fruit beer meets a sour belgian kriek. It got even better as she warmed. Very nice sour ale from the Captain.

Bottle shared by Thomas, thank you! Delicious sour with a strong flavor of sour cherries. This will only get better with age, but the flavor was so fresh that it would be hard to save them to wait and see!

Bottle shared with friends. Capt Lawrence does sours right! No if, andís or butís about it. Very nice tartness to this one. Jaw tickler to say the least. Very lucky I was able to get a bottle of this.

Dark chestnut brown body, moderate sized pale tan head, spotty lacing. Nose shows cherries, oak, vinous fruits, must, and a hint of acetic notes. Flavor is pronounced tart cherries, pie like sweetness, vinous notes, oak, and a little must. Moderate body, gentle carbonation, silky feel on the tongue, moderate sweetness, mellow sourness, nice tart finish.

Pours a murky dark orange with a faint white lacing. Notes of cherry promptly followed by an acidic palate. An exceptional mix of sour and fruitiness.
