750 mL bottle. Cloudy yellow. Smells of lemon, sweet white wine and grape juice, some herbaceous notes and earthy brett. Tastes of sweet white grape, some garlic, deep earthy notes, grapefruit citrus in the finish. A little sweet, lightly tart, pleasant to drink. The hop smells great. It steers more toward earthy and herbaceous, while dipping its toe into onion territory, but I still like it.

This one pours a clean golden yellow color, slight haze, with a fluffy head and a good bit of lacing.

This smells like bright lemony hops, white wine, oak, berry, and grapefruit.

This isn't one of the absolute best in this series, but the baseline for this series is good, no matter what, really. There's some grassiness and grapefruit, with a touch of berry-like flavor, and almost some green grape like flavor, or maybe that's just wine barrel. There's also lemon and oak.

This is light bodied, crisp, and pretty drinkable. You could easily have a whole bottle of this.
