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

This smells like weedy and floral funk, intense citrus, white wine, berry, passionfruit, and lemon peel.

This one of the "hoppier" entries so far, as the dry hopping does more to cut through the typical citrusy and floral funkiness of the base beer. There's some exotic tastes - maybe passionfruit, with more typical notes of citrus and lemon alongside that floral and lemony funk that you'd expect.

This is light bodied, clean, and crisp, with a very nice drinkability.

This series really is one of my favorite new series that have come out of Hill Farmstead in the last few years. They are pretty uniformly excellent.
