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

The label on this beer is funney, it has a picture of Milton from Office space and the infamous red stapler. The description on the side of the bottle is very informative. The bottle was chilled in the fridge, set out to bring up to cellar temp. poured into a CS glass. big thanks to my CO guy.

A: Honey, nectar, hazy, viscus. A white 2cm head forms of closely packed Co2 bubbles. When left to settle it completely dissipates to form a small ring around the glass. Easily sparked back up with a few swirls.

A: Sweet grapefruit juice, apples, oranges, and pears in no particular order. Very floral and hoppy.

T: From the first few pulls this beer is super tart with a refreshing blast of tangerine juice. As it warms it becomes less tart upfront and the juicer qualities really shine. The taste is of tangerine juice but does give depth to so much more fruit flavors as mentioned in the aroama.

M: nectar thick with a light level of carbonation. Super wet and clean.

O: This was my first experience with trinity brewing CO and man it set the bar High. Super refreshing beer. Awesome citrus qualities can be found in this unique pale ale. I really love the fact that it has a wild feel to it and the components really dazzle the taste buds. Im a big fan of Milton, so this beer made me laugh however I was quickly quieted the moment I took my first sip! I would love to get a case of this beer.
