Baylands Waifly, now in its eighth iteration, is one of the recurring fresh hop releases on my “can’t miss” list. It’s routinely one of the very best every season, and this year’s is no exception. Fresh Nelson Sauvin leads the charge on the nose, with gloriously fresh passionfruit sorbet alongside Waifly’s signature gummy bear lollies. Ripe and fresh on the tongue with sharp citrus rind and a streak of cooling menthol before the firm bitterness grips the finish. Another exceptional vintage for a beer that Baylands can confidentiality regard as a New Zealand fresh hop classic.
