Bottled 9/27/14

Pours a large creamy fluffy 2 finger head that fades pretty slowly with nice messy lacing, very clear iced tea tan auburn brown color.

Nose brings some farmhouse saison aromas with a yeasty aroma, mild grainy malt, reddish malts, some herbal spicy rye, the rye is different than I'm used to, herbal and quite earthy, some caramel malt like aromas, lots of random fruity notes as well, almost like it was lagered, and a yeasty aroma in the background like the yeast went too far in the bottle. It starts to get mildly sour, like the farmhouse yeast was souring things as it went.

Taste brings another strange mix of flavours, fruity at first, a fruity flavor from the yeast bringing like fruit punch flavours, straight up like Hawaiian punch, the rye is strong too, fruity and some spicy, but again that big herbal earthy rye thing. The beer had an earthy root like flavor, not sure if it's the rye, the yeast, or something else, but it's weird. Lots of weird fruity esters too, with a mild yeasty flavor, and a souring flavor, possibly infected, or just the yeast going too far and souring things, but pretty bleh. Also plenty of caramel sweetness, candy and caramel rye flavours, a little creme brulee fruit thing. Finish is pretty bitter, herbal spicy hops with fruity undertones dominate, more caramelized rye and herbal earthy fruity rye, and yeast flavor, all lingering, and sticky.

Mouth is med bod bit syrupy, mild booze warmth in the background, and mild slimy like esters, decent but lighter carb.

Overall this beer was not very good and quite a let down. Shame too. The more random Trillium beers I have the more I'm starting to think they are overrated unfortunately. I really doubt I will finish this entire 750ml, as its not really enjoyable, more of a chore to drink.
