From 10/02/14 notes. Side by side with Lenage Rye, 12 oz. bottle into a snifter.

Pours a murky yellow color with one finger of white head and moderate to high carbonation. Nose is sour and funky and has some fruity citrus and light fruity pebbles to it. Taste is way more funky, has some wheat, oats, grains, and earthy notes. Medium body and low to moderate carbonation.

Overall I thought this had a great nose, and the taste was good, but funkier and not as great as the nose. An interesting and good beer, but I prefer the Lineage Rye.

Bottle. Pours a bright, cloudy yellow with a thinner, white head that bubbles down to a thin seam. Not a lot of lacing. Aroma is still Saison-esque but it has a funky quality to it. Some oak and Saison spice. Flavor is funkier than I initially remembered it being (tried at Belgian Beer Fest last year). Somewhat tart. Still has Saison flavors. Slightly spicy. Wheat presence is detectable. Some oak. Fruity. Body is pretty light but it has texture. Medium carbonation. Better than I remember it being. Always down for a Trillium.

The beer comes in a golden light straw color, almost like white wine.

The aroma hits of lemon juice, zest, some stone fruit, almost a white wine quality. Some wet hay and bleu cheese funk.

The flavor has a light tart up front, a bit of tangelo and lemon type flavor. This falls away quite quickly as the beer dries out with almost a copper rust flavor. This is surrounded by a light wheat and funk quality.

Crisp and clean, but a light mouthfeel. It also slightly lacks in depth and tartness.

Poured from a 375 mL bottle into a stemmed glass. This was bottled 08/19/14 so is pretty fresh.

Appearance: Pours a hazy lemon-yellow/translucent light amber and gives a fluffy head of a couple fingers which fades slowly to a white layer atop the beer, leaving lacing. (4.5)

Smell: Nice funky lemons, grapes, green apples, citrus rinds, pepper, oak, a dash of cloves. Nice balanced, refreshing aroma. (4.5)

Taste: Interesting - different than the aroma. Some light lemon/citrus up front, followed by oak, a different type of funk, wheat, citrus rinds, grapes. Really mellowed out taste - very smooth but misses out on some of the best parts of the aroma. Not sour in the taste which is interesting. (4.25)

Mouth-feel: Medium to well carbonated with a medium, creamy body. Super smooth, especially in the finish. (4.5)

Overall: This one really warmed up to me. The aroma was wonderful right up front - but the flavor surprised me but got better and better - just so mild, drinkable and refreshing. A bit of nice funk and plenty of citrus. A delicious summer beer for sure. (4.5)

Sort of a round buttery brett presence to this one. Begging for a bit more acidity and dryness from the wheat. Bit of a mess but Trillium's amazing work w hops may have led me to too high of an expectation here.
