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.

saison man is downright delicious, they always seem to be out of it the brewery, so nice to get on this finally. ancient grains with brett, always fun. the oats and rye and spelt and all give this a lot of sturdy body and a unique base for the brett to launch from. tart and fruity the brett comes across, i get as much malt as i do yeast, and this is really full of flavor for a low alcohol offering. impressed by the use of brett, its almost tangy but not in a lemony way, and the grains keep it a little sweet without being too much on the back end. layers of flavor, this is a solid four season saison, given its more substantial grain bill and not in your face brett complex. dry as can be, but still fuller bodied and beautifully carbonated. one of trinitys best saison types, one of the most drinkable, and one of the most affordable. dont pass on this one. great use of brett to finish it off.

Pours a hazy whitish yellow with a big white head. Aroma is funky and a bit woody from the brett giving off some tartness, and some nice grapefruit, grainy, and just a kiss of some hops. Flavor is also wonderfully funky and woody from the brett with again some slight tartness, some great grapefruit offering up its sugars and rind, and just the slightest bit a bit of graininess and spice. A thinner, crisp, active, mouthfeel. Overall, a fantastic beer here. Loved it, not sure how it only generates an 80 rating here.

Saison aged in oak barrels with Brett...yes, please!

A - pours a pale, straw yellow without much of a head. However, a small white ring forms around the glass

S - nose is funky, really lemony, and a touch of grains

T - starts off with lemon tartness, which moves on to more intense sour flavors, namely lemons again. The Brett funk is hanging over everything, but really makes its attack on the taste buds about 3/4s of the way down the palate. End funky and sour...nice!

M - smooth and creamy...not much carbonation

D - overall, this one was awesome. Wasn't expecting it to be this funky and sour. This was recommended by a local, and what a great call! Looking forward to having more from these guys very soon!

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.
