Big thanks to Huhzubendah for sharing this one. Served in a Captain Lawrence cervoise. Pours a nice, bright pink color with a tall light pink head. Good retention and lacing. Wow, itís an elderflower beer that tastes good. More else and hibiscus. Very well done. Subtle and nuanced, but still pungent. Fairly tart.

Pours a bright pink salmon with a large creamy head. Nose is American wine barrel, tight brett, pretty bright, then a bouquet of herbal flowers. On first whiff it reminded me of Mamouche in a way which has elderflowers. Pretty dank nose overall. Mouth is pleasantly dry, a kind of very integrated dry white wine barrel with the tight brett. Finish is cracked pepper and fresh field flowers. I actually really like this, itís one of my favorite Captain Lawrence beers from recent memory.

PhillyCraft (5471) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2012
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.

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.

RoyalFlushing (326) - Mamaroneck, New York, USA - JUL 25, 2012
Bottle poured a ruby red grapefruit with a small tan head and minimal lacing. Aroma is dominated by elegant floral notes with hints of lemon zest and Brett. Taste includes notes of berry, lemon, oak, and floral essence. Palatable sourness and a crisp, tart finish.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUL 23, 2012
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.

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.

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.
