Captain Lawrence Brewing – Captain Lawrence Hops N’ Roses – 750 ml. bottle poured into a goblet. 5.5% abv.
Appearance: Pours a cloudy peachy rose color, with quickly subsided head action.
Aroma: Rose porpuri, ripe berry and spicy funk.
Taste: Earthy bitterness, floral, tannic. Finishes funky and tart.
Mouthful: A tad chalky, full bodied, modest carbonation.
Overall: Fun to try, but I prefer no fruit or fruit sours over botanicals.
