4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle with some Bros courtesy of Bill. Pours a murky pink with small head, medium light lacing. Aromas are floral all the way: hibiscus, elderberries, rose hips, sour fruit and light oak. So delicate but drinkable at the same time. What an amazing fruit beer, glad I have a few more bottles to try.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, first shared by Dmac. Pours out a pinkish/red framboise looking beer with a light pink head. Aroma is of mildly tart brett, funk, lots of sweet floral notes, rose water and light mothball; solid carbonation. Taste is of light sourness, mothball, funk, floral roses, light sweetness, a subdued funky, sour tart note resonates and finishes with slight tartness. Iíd like to see what some more time does to it.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
375mL shared at Woodshop 7. Pours a full haze strawberry to pink. White foam. Nose is a bit toilet water, heavy cucumber, and massive dill. (??) Taste is cucumber water, sweet dill, mild salt. Ehh- very strange. A bit overboard there on the elder flower.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
375ml bottle into a snifter. Bottled in: 5/12. Extremely slow gush after opening.
A - Dark orange body with a pink tint. Somewhat hazy yet it lets a lot of light through. Really lasting bone white head with excellent lacing and retention.
S - Really saison like. Grass, hay, lemons, and then the floral kick comes into play. A bit of spice and sweetness from the different flowers. I canít describe this aroma other than calling it "floral". It works really well though and its never comes off as being too floral. Some warm oak and red grape notes in the finish.
T - Definitely a liquid gold base. Hay and grass, a bit of spicy coriander, tart lemons, light brett and oak notes. This is followed by some very subtle but interesting floral flavors. Earthy, spicy and cheesy with some sweetness. Mouth feel is spritzy with a surprising alcohol presence despite the low ABV.
O - Captain Lawrence is on a real roll for me. This is a really interesting and well executed wild ale. The flowers are rather subtle and just compliment the oak aged base beer and the critters. I was thinking it would be either too much floral, or synthetic like an air freshener. Iím happy to say thats not the case.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy dark pink color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma was herbal, brett, vanilla, wood, some bacteria, floral, and tropical fruits. Taste was quite floral, berries, vanilla, brett, wood, and a tart finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to Joey for the bottle. Poured into a Russian River tulip. Beautiful cloudy pink-orange body with a thick white head. The aroma is very floral. Reminds me of rose hip tea. Light funkiness with a touch of Belgian ale spice. The taste is that of a lightly spiced Belgian pale upfront, but then transitions to a slightly bitter, earthy, floral-brett flavor. Body is well carbonated, but still smooth. Nice dryness on the back end, which mixes well with the sweetness of the base beer. Overall, this was another tasty beer from the Captain. I could easily drink a bottle by myself. Might even improve as the brett becomes more dominant.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle thanks to dmac! Very dark rose colored pour, very little carbonation and an aroma of flowers, herbs and a little white vinegar. Flavor is dry white wine, just a hint of some of the rose hips and woody on the aftertaste. Not bad.
