3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Liquid gold upon first pour, hazy honey on second with a small ivory head and ample carbonation. Aroma is sour grapes, rice wine vinegar, and lemon zest. Extremely tart with a bit of sour funk, sweaty feet, and lemongrass. Thin mouthfeel. Not a bad beer but kind of expected more complexity.

Refrigerated 12.7 oz. brown bottle poured into a tulip. Clear golden with very little white head. Aroma is slightly tart oak, medium body, low carbonation, and no lacing. Taste is tart white grape, oak, and white wine. Good, but expected to like this more.

Havenít had a Captain Lawrence beer since (I think) 2007, what a pleasant surprise to say the least. Hazy orange/yellow color, moderate head, some lace/retention. Aroma is barnyard action, oak barrel, vanilla, tart, acidic, yeast, grape. Medium bodied, acidic, tart (not overly so - really nice balance of flavors) with of course brett with some barrel sweetness to round it out.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Lactic sour, oaky Woody, dry grape, white wine aroma and flavor. Not too sour, maybe 4 or 5 of 10 sour and virtually all lactic, but with a little earthy funk in the finish. Carbonation dies fast. Really complex and balanced and a solid sour. A notch below the greats I think with the low dying carbonation and the earthy funk in the finish ( but the earthy funk does compliment the dry oaky white wine and balances with the lactic sour, the earthy funk balance may be a benefit for some... And the more I drink the more I like the balance the slight funk provides). Bumping up a notch the more I have. So complex and so good, only negative now is the lack of carbonation.

375ml bottle, big thanks to phaleslu for sharing. I got the last 3-4oz. 2015 batch. Wow. Awesome smell. Big, funky, mildly cheesy, oaky nose, with a nice amount of grape character. Hazy golden color. Ring of white head. Some bits of lace. Wow, great flavor too. Awesome moderate to bigger sour taste, moderate sweet. Just a very mild spicy bite. Medium-plus body, mild chewiness to it. Lighter, kind of crisp carbonation. Mild dry in the finish. Awesome funky aftertaste. Very nice sour.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
375 ml bottle via trade - thanks again, Charlie! 2015 vintage. Pours a hazy gold with almost no head. Aroma of white wine, lemon juice, oak, herbs and spices, dusty grains, plum skins, wildflowers - really sharp and fresh and tart. Flavor of white wine, plums, lemon, wet hay, grass, mild spices, vanilla, wildflowers, apple, funk, and tannins. Medium-bodied, with modest carbonation and a fruity, vinous, funky, tart mouthfeel that starts cleaner and muddles up over time. Really good but I was picky on this one since Iíve been excited for it for a long time. The flavor and mouthfeel just donít deliver like they could, especially based on the aroma.
