4.2/5  rDev +1.2%
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.

From 10/02/14 notes. Side by side with the Lineage Wheat, 12 oz. bottle into a snifter.

Pours a deep yellow-orange color with one finger of white head and moderate carbonation evident. Sour citrus, white wine, oak, funk, and some sour fruits. Taste is really great, very fruity. Medium body and low carbonation.

Overall I thought this was awesome, and is one of their best. I liked this better than the Lineage Wheat as the LW taste was funkier, and I found this fruiter and more sour. Definitely seek this one out.

Foamy and lasting head. Leaves a blanket of lace on the glass. The liquid is light gold and cloudy.

Very acidic smell. Very much like a Berliner Weisse.

The taste matches the smell but slightly more mellow. Rich bodied with a low carbonation level.

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.

Huge coconut flavor. Bit of funky. Light and refreshing. Dry finish.

3.9/5  rDev -6%

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.
