4.29/5  rDev +8.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

The beer pours a hazy, straw yellow, almost green, with a nice little head of eggshell white bubbles that fizzles quickly into a tight scrim. In body, the beer is nicely hazy and appealingly pale with little of the other side of the glass coming through. On the nose, the beer smells of crisp, stale crackers and fresh hay, a touch of funk, and a light lemon pop on the end of the whiff. As you stick your nose deeper into the glass, the hay moves more towards freshly cut grass, pepper, and a faint and appealing brass scent. This beer smells wonderfully like a saison. On the tongue, the beer tastes nicely wheat-malt sweet with a medium bitter finish. A light, acidic pop comes throughout the taste and gives the mouth a nice bite. In flavor, the beer begins as light wheat flake flavors which slowly blend into a beautiful bitter flavor of fresh cut grass and peppers that dips towards lemon bread with a bright citric pop on the tongue. The finish brings a light caramel into the flavor, which blends beautifully with the wheat flake and grass flavors to crescendo in a dry, yet refreshing snap on the tongue. The aftertaste is softly bitter with grass and hay, with a lingering hint of wheat flakes. On the tongue, the beer feels on the light side of medium in body with a crisp, snappy carbonation that cuts lightly across the palate, scrubbing the tongue dry and leaving the mouth begging for another sip. The sides of the mouth, meanwhile, pucker slightly and wet with acid canceling saliva. Overall, this is a hugely refreshing saison with some beautiful complexities. It has some similarities to Mystic’s Saison Renaud, but this beer brings more of the grassy hops into the flavor and puts a nice balance between the malt, the hops, and the yeast. The mouthfeel is a little rough but the balance is hugely impressive, and very tasty, proving some major skill on the brewer’s part. I like this beer and I can’t wait to try more!

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

A: Very light pastel straw yellow in color. Slightly hazy. Forms a large foamy white head. Excellent retention and moderate lacing.

S: Aroma is mostly yeasty esters with lighter, brighter notes of lemon.

T: Taste is that classic Farmhouse taste. Light and effervescent with notes of lemon and white grapes. A hint of yeasty spice in background. No sweetness.

M: Lighter bodied. Heavier carbonation. Minimal bitterness, though there is a mild astringency to the beer. Dry.

O: A well made and accurate representation of the style. A quality flagship beer. and another very nice beer from Trillium.
