375 ml bottle courtesy of Doodler (thanks Scott!) poured a clear pinkish amber with a small lasting pinkish head. Aromas of straw, barnyard funk, hibiscus, floral notes and light citrus. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry lightly tart finish. Flavors of straw, citrus, hibiscus, light barnyard and light floral notes with a crisp dry lightly tart lingering hibiscus finish.

375 mL bottle courtesy of jcartamdg. Cheers, Jason! Pours a hazy prange with pink highlights and a white head. Nose is floral as hell: elderflowers, rose hips, hibiscus all come out in their own way with some vinous tartness and oak. Flavor starts with light malt then a punch of floral aspects and then some oaky tartness and floral notes into the finish. Light in body and a great sour overall.

The beer is fairly hazy and appears a radiant light orange hue. The head is an inch and a half, appearing soft and white, bordering on pink. Lasting retention and ample lacing. An outstanding appearance. The nose brings forth scents of flowers, fresh garden vegetables, salad greens, pickles, cucumbers, roses/rose petals, all atop a nice bed of brett funk. The flavor is very floral. The rose character is the star of the show here. Definitely a wild ale, but not incredibly funky or sour. Hints of raspberry. Lingering oak and brettanomyces in the finish. The sourness increases as the beer is allowed to warm. I must say, I am really enjoying this beer. Creative and well executed. Kudos to the folks at Captain Lawrence. I am happy to have more of these. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 07-14-2012

Final beer in the night of odd beers was this beauty by Cpt Lawrence. I really enjoyed this. Aroma was oak, berries, floral, and spices. Taste was lightly tart, could have been moreso, with really nice floral notes that worked well. Great.

Bottle from Gianni - thanks! Murky pinkish pour with a large froth of off-white foam. Aroma is light, herbal flowers with some vinuous white wine underneath and a bit of light sour. Taste is heavy with flowers over white wine and a corse, grainy flavor. Definitely tart through the finish but itís restrained and quenching. Some lingering tartness after each sip. Well crafted beer.

Bottle... Pours a murky rosť with a small, creamy, pinkish head. Great retention. The flavor is fruity and funky while offering up a delicate note of sharp old cheese. Medium-bodied with dancing carbonation. The flavor is tart, fruity and bready. Finishes tangy with a hint of yeasty bitterness. Bottle courtesy of growler!

Bottle with friends. Grapefruit pour with no head. Delicious aroma. Slightly stale. Taste is a punch of citrus with a fine woodiness. Slightly stale but compliments. Really unique
