4.24/5  rDev +3.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

From 07/21/14 notes. Big thanks to jslot38 for sending me a bottle of this; thanks Justin! 22 oz. bottle poured into a tulip, side by side with Trillium.

a - Pours a somewhat hazy bright yellow color, with two inches of bright white head and low to moderate carbonation. Looks nice.

s - Smells of citrus hops, honey, oranges, citrus hops, wheat, yeast, grains, pine hops, light fruity malts, and light spice. Nice nose, lots going on and lots of citrus.

t - Tastes of citrus hops, oranges, tangerines, honey, pine hops, sweet floral notes, fruity malts, wheat, grains, and yeast. Follows the nose, little more fruit. Very nice.

m - Medium body and low carbonation. Super smooth and very easy to drink. Could have taken down a whole bottle.

o - Overall I thought this was reall good, and I liked it better than the normal Trillium saison. Lots of citrus and super easy to drink, with some nice pine in the back as well. Very good, would love to have it again.

3.91/5  rDev -4.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

pours a hazy orange that clears up a bit,

some piney notes but overall not very strong

I enjoy Saisons very much and this is an interesting mix. The first sip definitely has that saison yeast thing, give it a second and the hops aren't to far behind. not the norm but enjoyed it!

mouth feel is nice, carbonation is decent and flavor/taste hangs around, some resin towards the end.

overall I quite enjoyed this brew and will definitely be consuming it again...

sorry for the short review... Cheers!

3.83/5  rDev -6.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

A-Pours golden yellow with a tall, frothy head. Head is bright white.

S-I get lots of Saison yeast character as well as a potent pop of grassy hops. Yeast is spicy and there is a grainy element as well.

T-Hopped with Amarillo apparently; this brew delivers some serious hoppiness on the palate. Pine, grass and some grapefruit. A little clovey and spicy. Dried, pale malt flavor. Not much sweetness.

M-Really impressed after learning this beer's ABV. 8.5% coming in like 5.5%. Dry, good bitterness. Medium bodied. Up lighting bubbles.

O-Super Saison is an apt description. It's one of the few Saison's I have enjoyed at this high of an alcohol level. Usually, I feel like this style of beer tends to fall apart anywhere close to 8%. This one bucks the trend.
