Opens with a resounding pop! This might be my favorite label of the bunch
Pours slightly hazed apricot with a thumb of pearl colored head, falls off fast. Some head & lacing
S: Grapefruit & lemons, & funk hiding underneath
T: Big time lemon & grapefruit (mostly pink, but regular grapefruit too) & bit of sourness up front; this one smacks you in the face..More puckery notes as this warms, slight breadyness hides beneath the grapefruit, some pineapple & mango, along with faint pear & white grape notes, just so much sourness
MF: Subtle carbonation, smooth body & nice puckeryness, mixed in well with the fruittyness of all ilks
If you like em sour, with some citrus frills; you'll love this. I know I did. Easily my favorite in this line-up; a home-run in my books

Poured into my DFH snifter...
A. Pale gold, foggy, bountiful three finger head, very thick lacing, pillowy foam.
S. Grape skin, yeast, apple, honeysuckle, wine, sage.
T. Honey, white wine, apricot, grass, cracked pepper.
M. Bone dry, well-carbed, sweet on the edge of the palate but with a cutting, herbal, bitter, dry finish.
O. A very nice beer with an out of balance mouthfeel. Finish is extremely yeasty and dry, to the detriment of all the other pleasant qualities the brew presents. Even so, it glows with craftsmanship. This was made with love and the quality of the ingredients is notable in the flavor profile, which is complex and enjoyable. It's just too bad the finish is so over the top in its dryness and bitterness.
