This beer gets better as time goes on. Maybe it's the sediment getting in on the mix as I pour over time. Whatever it is, it's working.

Nice mellow sweet tone. Rye definitely steps in to give a very good spiced tone to it that is well balanced. Very smooth feel. A very easy drinker. A very nice beer. At first it was a decent beer, but as time went on it got much better. I have a feeling this is better on bottle than draft. Glad to get to try something from Trillium. Very much looking forward to the next.

3.34/5  rDev -11.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: 1/4 inch head, high carbonation, amber in color, clear

Smell: rye, grass, and Belgian spices

Taste: rye, grass, caramel, orange, and Belgian spices

Mouthfeel: sweet and dry, medium bodied and medium carbonation

Overall: An ok to above average rye beer. The rye is dominate and it mixes well with the other flavors. A solid beer, it just felt like something was missing. I may have appreciated this more if if it came in a smaller size, but a bomber just seemed a bit much. Worth a try, just did not do it for me.

Wake Robin pours a clear, mahogany color with a massive, rocky head on top. The foam fades away slowly, leaving behind a thick coating of lace.

The aroma is spicy with notes of rye, orange peel, white pepper, a little coriander and bubblegum.

Each sip of this medium bodied beer is smooth, with mild carbonation. The flavor is complex with notes of rye, coriander, pepper, orange peel, bubblegum and a touch of banana. It finishes spicy and mildly bitter. Once gone the coriander, rye and orange lingers on the palate.

This is an easy drinking, tasty beer. On the bready side with long lasting, lingering flavors.
