Growler courtesy of Quirkzoo

Pours fairly opaque and bright golden color with a frothy white sticky head.
Quite a bit of brett in the nose with it's distinct funk and a bit of pepper and lemon.
A nice earthy flavor all up in there with the typical saison spice, pepper and lemon combo. This one happens to be extremely refreshing, with a fairly wet mouthfeel. A solid medium body.
Solid beer that I'm very pleased to have a growler of.

Light vinegar smell. Mouthfeel is the kind of acidity that makes your teeth feel like they are eroding. But some jolly bubbles in the glass. It tastes exactly like the raw apple cider I let ferment with wild yeast in the garage, only I forgot about it for a few weeks. Thin and harsh with the ghost of cider. Watery in a bad way.

This is the 2013 bottled version and the lactic acid bacteria have eaten its lunch. Nasty chemical bitter aftertaste. No hints of oak, vanilla, or any other barrel flavor.

How is this a Saison? If that's what it's supposed to be, Trinity should keep track of their barrels so they don't infect all their beers with Lactobacillus. Don't we have categories for sour beers? And if it's supposed to be a sour it's the kind of spoiled dregs that give sour beers a bad name. From the 750 ml bottle purchased at Grapevine Liquors in Denver for a stupid price.
