3.38/5 rDev -20.1%
750 mL gusher of a bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Hazy and murky orange. Not much of a head. Thin collar.
Smell - Acidic. Very bretty. Hoppy too. Citrus and grapefruit. Musty.
Taste - Citrus hop, but gets tangy quickly. Lemony tang. Earthy brett is strong.
Mouthfeel - Medium body. Bitter and mildly sour. Flavorful for its size.
Overall - Got tiresome after a while.

Cheers to SteveO for this one. Had a few Trinity beers prior to moving from the springs, this my first since move here...
Bottle 772 12/12, batch TBB 1-6 opens with a little gush, no big thang...
Pours a hazed amber with a thumb of egg shell colored head. Never totally clears, pretty nice head retention & below average lacing
S: Much sourness, citric & grassy notes
T: Sourness, a touch of grassyness, lemons & pineapples, plus tartness up front, so getting the tangerine rind, but also pineapple in spades. Earthy lemony/citric tartness, a bit of oakyness & pineapple as this warms, choke cherry here as well. Finishes tart with grapefruit, pineapple, a bit of white grape & honeysuckle & puckery, oaky sourness
MF: Medium bodied with delicate carbonation, plus some warming sensation
So easy to drink, wow a whole lot of flavor packed into a quaffable 4.1 abv package. This the greatness I recall from Jason on stops prior to Trinity! Classic American Wild ale, no real major flaws here only minor detractors
