4.2/5  rDev -0.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours a clear golden yellow, great carbonation, active bubbles.

Nose is bread, yeast, some funk. Alot of the farmhouse components are still showing up. Hints of citrus and lemon.

Taste is more funky than the smell, but the backbone of a saison is still very present. Cheese, honey, still faint citrus notes. Dry, with an enjoyable slightly tart finish.

It's very well balanced between a Saison and a Sour, which makes this very drinkable, multiple times over.

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

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.

The beer pours some very bubbly head that dissipates very quickly. The beer itself is a clear gold color with hints of red. The smell has a strong funk smell that is sour and a little tart. There are some rye notes and a slight malty sweetness as well. The smell also some citrus and lemon notes that go well with a slight hint of yeast rounded out with a vanilla oak notes. The taste is similar to the smell. However, the lemon notes are much stronger and the sour funk smell is weaker. The oak notes are also present and take the edge off of the lemon flavor and also brings the other notes together. Also, slight rye notes that easily get lost in the lemon and oak. The overall taste is similar to a Saison with rye and hint of sour as an afterthought. The beer is medium bodied with biting carbonation and goes down fairly smooth. Overall, a fairly good beer that straddles the line between sour and saison very well. The funk is enough to make it unique but not strong enough to deter most drinkers.
