4.2/5  rDev +2.4%

Poured from 25 oz. bottle into pint glass

A - The body is a pale straw color with a white head of medium thickness.

S - Banana, clove, black pepper, orange, and graden herbs all mingle to desirable effect.

T - A super-fresh tasting beer with a sizable hop presence for the style! The hops bring orange, peach, and even berry flavors to the tongue. Then spicy yeast esters dance over the cracker-like malt. The finish is fairly dry and bitter with lingering spice and a hint of alcohol.

M - The mouthfeel is just a hair over medium-bodied.

O - A very tasty beer. The Amarillo hops bring a pleasant fruity element to the Saison. Worth checking out.

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!

The beer pours a nice creamy white head that dissipates quickly. The beer itself is a hazy orange-gold color with some hints of yellow. The beer smell has a strong musty and bready smell. The hop notes are buried deep beneath the spice and clove notes, and have a variety of notes that range from orange to citrus with a bit of a grassy tinge to it. The taste is similar to the smell but stronger. The few differences are that the orange notes are much stronger than the smell as is the grass. The mustyness is also a bit weaker than the spices and cloves. The mouthfeel is medium bodied but on the heavier side. The feel is surprising smooth despite the biting carbonation. The mouth is left a little dry but not very much. Overall, as always, another fantastic brew from Trillium. The beer is pretty well balanced such that you get most if not all of the notes.
