Review: Captain Lawrence Xtra Gold

An Abbey Tripel brewed by
Captain Lawrence Brewing Company

Pleasantville, New York USA

ABV: 10%

Had from the bottle – I am so happy they are doing that now – and poured into a snifter. It pours a cloudy, unfiltered looking yellow with a thin head. The aroma to me is dominated by citrus. A very, very strong citrus aroma that follows through to the taste. The taste is complex and brings those citrus flavors, some earthy tastes, fruits like bananas and it is sweet while sipping but ends a touch bitter. It gets better and better as it goes on. Can knock you on your butt if you aren’t careful.

My ratebeer.com score: 4.1
