4.21/5  rDev +6.6%

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.

Appearance: 1/3 inch head, medium-high carbonation, gold in color, clear

Smell: sour apple apple, grass, and hay

Taste: sour apple apple, grass, Belgian spices, and hay

Mouthfeel: sweet start with funkiness and mild bitterness, light bodied and medium-high carbonation

Overall: A good saison. Very clean and it hits all of what I expect from the style. Well crafted and enough to keep me curious about this brewery.

32 oz growler, poured into a tulip glass.

A -- pale straw color. White head, thin. Good lacing, and retention. Clear with good nucleation.

N -- Banana yeast. Clove/spiciness. Something sweet. Can't put my finger on it.

T -- Follows the nose. Hoppier than a normal saison with a decent level of bitterness.

M -- Bubbly...

O -- Quite good. Enjoyed my first experience at Trillium today for my sister's birthday.

Cheers.
