Light amber color, hazy, with a finger of frothy white head that sank to a wispy layer, coating the glass with lace. In the nose, grassy funk, light fruity esters, peppery spice, pretty standard stuff for the style, all where it should be. The taste reflected the nose, notes of pear and banana, wet grass, moderate funk, peppery spice, with a crisp, herbal hop quality, and an earthy finish. Light-medium body, nice drinkability. There's nothing new and amazing going on here, but it's a very good bottled saison, and a good representation of the style overall.

Pours a hazy yellow into the large Duvel tulip, with an appearance somewhere between lemonade and clouded honey, topped by thick, meringue-like suds. The beer has a muted lemony aroma, with no acidic edge; instead, it almost leads to an expectation of mild sweetness. What's actually delivered to the palate, however, is an unusual, crisp, vegetal freshness--not lemony at all, but more suggestive of al dente yellow squash or juicy, raw kernels of just-picked corn. This unlikely combination of smell and taste works very well, resulting in a pleasant and quaffable brew that is further distinguished by its rich, unexpectedly smooth texture. Quite good.

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

A - Slightly hazy, straw/gold. Huge fluffy white head. Fades quickly to a rocky head and leaves nice lacing.

S - Peppercorn, lemon zest, some spiciness, maybe from the yeast. Some hay.

T - Banana, clove, strong fruity esters. None of the flavors are too overpowering. A very balanced farmhouse ale. Bitterness lingers along with some pepper.

M - Medium body, Medium to high carbonation, but definitely not spritzy. The carb level is just right.

O - I had high expectations for this ale going in and I am not dissapointed. One finest saisons I've ever tried. I'm lucky to have tried this and I will certainly seek out more from Trillium.

Poured a light apricot color with a 4F head in a tulip. Very nice looking beer.
The head resolved itself within a few minutes.

The aroma was wonderful: strong clove and fruit. One of the best aromas in a Saison I have tasted- and very balanced. The clove melded well with the fruit.

The mouth feel was not very carbonated- I liked this because it leads to a nice transition to the taste.

The taste is also balanced like the aroma: fruit, clove, and barnyard funk. None of the taste elements are overdone, which blend well together.

There is a slight hoppy bitterness in the finish.

Overall- a well done Saison. Very well balanced and delightful to drink. Will buy another bottle.
