BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Trillium Brewing Company
Massachusetts, United States | website

Style: Saison / Farmhouse Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.40%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
The simplicity of Trillium’s grist of barley and wheat delivers a wonderfully complex, yet approachable, American farmhouse ale. Our house farmhouse yeast blend, along with American hops, drive a distinctive character in this rustic, unfiltered ale. Trillium expresses a beautiful nose of peppery spice, coupled with flavors of fermentation-derived fruit and more pepper. Firm bitterness and effervescent carbonation combine with a satisfyingly smooth mouthfeel from the wheat.

MALT: Pilsner, White Wheat, Flaked Wheat

HOPS: US Goldings, Columbus

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A - Poured from a growler into an oversized win glass. Head springs up an inch or so on an easy pour. Color is dark straw, very cloudy, as one would expect. Head recedes slowly due in part to ample carbonation. Light lacing on the glass.

S - Subdued, but has the components that one would expect from a Saison. Bit of funk to it.

T - Yeasty flavors hit first, with a nice funkiness to follow. Then the unexpected: a well-rounded bitterness that my limited experiences with Saison has rarely picked up. I like it. Adds another component to an already well-constructed beer.

M - Quite pleasant. The carbonation makes the beer feel pillowy. Nice medium-body leaves no sensation of fizziness. Little tingle on the tongue.

O - I bought the growler to share with my wife, but she didn't like the bitterness. I was all too happy to have her glass. I may pick up another one of these soon.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy pale yellow body. Nice white head with nice clingy foam. Never settles out.

Smell - Lemon. Kinda herbal aroma. Very yeasty. Light doughy malt.

Taste - Immediate herbal hop flavor. Lemon hops second. Grassy in middle. Light doughy malts. Lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel - High carbonation. Bitter. Medium body.

Overall - A little nondescript, but it's tasty.
