This one pours a slightly hazy golden yellow color, with a small head, and lots of lacing.

This has a bold and wonderful citrusy funk that is so indicative of a HF farmhouse ale. It's a combination of hay and grass and citrus rind. I also get pineapple and white wine on the nose.

This is pretty "normal" for this series, but it's still delicious. It's very juicy, with stone fruit, pineapple, and lemon tartness, along with that classic HF funk, and a slight touch of tart bitterness on the back end.

This is really drinkable, with a very clean finish - the tartness doesn't linger at all.

I'm glad they're still releasing beers in this series - it had been a while since the last one.

375mL poured into perennial wine glass. pours a hazy yellow with a thin soapy white head. white ring around the edges lasts the entire pour. smell is a lemony, grassy funk with a bit of wine barrel character. taste is similar with a mildly tart aftertaste. not sure i am picking up on any hops, but i’m okay with that. feel is a bit on the thin side. kind of lower carb for the style but a little watery. other than that aspect, great beer in a series where you don’t always know what you’re going to get.
