32 oz mini-growler, filled at Trillium on Sat 16 Nov. Opened and shared with my wife 7 days later on 23 Nov. Refrigerated, poured to a pair of tall 'Breakside' pint glasses.
A: Deep honey-caramel color with a 1-finger topping of foamy ivory. Head drops slowly, excellent retention and strong lacing in stripes and speckles. Complexion is fairly hazy, though not so much as to obscure the rising carbonation emanating from the glass' bottom etching and elsewhere. A very attractive couple of pours.
S: Floral and a vague fruitiness of pulpy apples, pears. Candy/sugar sweetness in drifting waves, a little clove. Despite a lofty head and clean palate/sinuses not very strong.
T: Good flavor - improved apple, ample doughiness (grass, hay), understated rye spicing. Hints at tartness without being anything approaching 'wild'. Paired well with some milder soft French cheeses, including an ashy morbier, we enjoyed while we drank!
M: A bit on the thicker/chewier side compared to many of the Saisons I've enjoyed over the years. Lends itself to 'rustic' comparisons. Finishes on the dry side, mildly chalky. Slight sticky malts linger too.
O: Enjoyable farmhouse ale, good layering of flavors and sturdy body. Not the most memorable but certainly a solid effort. Nice job, Trillium!

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.
