Bottle. Great label. Love Trillium's look. Pours a murky yellow with a subdued head. Aroma is tart, nearly sour, somewhat funky and woody. It also has a very enticing malty background. The malt doesn't necessarily smell sweet, it's leaning closer toward being dry. It smells efficiently integrated within itself; not picking up and sharp scents. The flavor starts off with a chord of tartness that reverberates for much of the flavor. Soft oakiness. It has some Saison qualities to it; not just a blindly sour, Wild Ale. Then all the sudden...this huge, thick, doughy maltiness just do,images the finish. Rye bread flavor in a manner I have not experienced before. It is mostly dry but has its sweeter moments and it almost reminds me of blonde, homemade vanilla cake. What a transition from sour to liquid bread. Lighter bodied. Medium carbonation. Lingering bread flavor. What a tasty beer. I love when a beer literally transforms on your tongue. This one does just that. A very unique beer. (993 characters)

375ml bottle purchased at the brewery earlier today. Poured into HF wine glass.

A- Pours a clear yellowish golden with minimal haze, nice consistent carbonation, and about a finger's worth of frothy white head that leaves light clingy lacing.

S- Lemons, wheat, rye, a bit of yeast, a slight bit of dry barnyard funk, oak. Not overly aromatic or complex but nice balance of aromas.

T- Tart lemons, hints of rye, wheat, subtle oak, finishes with a dry light barnyard funk presence, straw, slight bit more oak, and subtle lingering taste of oats and a hint of rye. Nicely balanced, not overly tart or funky, adds a little bit more complexity then the nose, nicely layered.

M- Medium bodied, dry, nice carbonation for style which plays a bit with the funkiness, pretty easy drinking with a medium acidity level.

O- This was a very nice local wild saison that was well balanced and subtle layers of complexity. Probably my favorite saison that Trillium has come out with however it still falls a notch below a lot of the world class saisons. Might be interesting to lay down and age for awhile letting the bugs develop a little bit more. (1,137 characters)

A-Semi clear yellow, one finger head that lingers and gives some lacing.

S-Wheat, very mild tartness, some green apple and slight slight oak.

T-Some wheat, good bit of green apple. Not much tartness or oak. Slight lemon. Butter as well

M-Lighter, some carbonation.

O-An okay beer, but they did not really hit the mark with this one. (338 characters)
