750 mL bottle. Golden body with a big white head. Smells of oak, white wine, sharp acidity. Tastes of lots of oak, sharp sourness with a little stone fruit flavor, and a long wine finish. Medium body. It smells nice, but it's a very sharp barrel character that dominates the flavor profile.

This pours a lightly hazy yellow color, with a small head, and a small amount of lacing.

This smells like sour citrus, lemongrass, hay like funk, grassy hops, white wine, and stone fruit.

This is a great, great blend here. I get more Arthur tones than Florence tones- with the big citrus and stone fruit thing going, and that underlying grassy funk. There's some sour wheat, a bit of lemon, and just a hint of oak, with a tannic wine-like finish. This is excellent.

This is medium bodied, crisp, and very clean, with a good level of carbonation for the style.

This one of the better entries in this series in recent memory. I can never turn down a new Hill Farmstead beer.
