4.21/5  rDev +3.2%

Pours a hazy golden straw color with decent lacy white head. Aroma is slightly rustic, earthy with lemons, a bit catty at the edges. Very classic saison yeast strand characteristics in the nose with a bit of american hop citrus.

Crisp bite up front, good hop bittering. Very dry. Earthy lemon flavor dominates, more of that classic Dupont yeast flavor. Then in the aftertaste a good dose of juicy citrus american hop flavor, a bit of sweetness mixes well with the hop juice. Finishes dry and bitter at the end, lingering saison yeast esters mixed with a bit more lingering citrus hop character.

The citrusy hops mixed very well with the classic saison style. This is a very well done version of a classic saison with something extra that adds to the character and flavor profile.

3.91/5  rDev -4.2%

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.
