Single, 12.7 ounce bottle copped from Total Wine and More in West Orange. Pours a thick, golden, hazy hue with minimal frothing. Assertive aroma replete with notes of sour melon and warheads candy. Similar overall flavor profile. Terrific stuff. Recommended.

Pours a clear gold color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Slight retention and poor lacing. Smells of grapes, bacterial funk, slight apple, and wood. Fits the style of a Belgian Lambic. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. There is a strong tartness and noticeable dryness. Tastes of grapes, bacterial funk, slight apple, wood, hint of sweet malt, hint of yeast, hint of citrus hops, and a hint of dough. Overall, average appearance, weak aroma, but good complexity, body, and blend. Overall, besides a weak aroma this is quite good.

12.7oz bottle into a tulip. No freshness dating.

Pale golden yellow body, average carbonation replenishes a small bright white head. no lacing though.

A pleasant champagne apple cider aroma

Taste is mildly funky, a little tart & sour, and also mildly sweet

This one initially feels a little dead in the light to medium mouth, but does finish with a slightly sweet tartness.

overall, I found this a difficult beer to rate & describe. it is not unpleasant in any way, just seems subdued and a bit lacking in flavor. I will say though, that the longer the drink went on, as it warmed, the more i began to appreciate the delicateness.

Appearance: Pours hazy and golden colored with a thick, frothy head; dots of lace drape down the glass

Smell: Funky and acetic; very reminiscent of an unblended Lambic

Taste: Acetic from the get go, with a very tart, sour character; funky with a distinct lemon pepper tone; very sour finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with low to moderate carbonation

Overall: Not for beginners, this is as close to an unblended Lambic as I have tasted out of an American brewery

12.7 oz bottle purchased for $5. I don't think Trinity has been in Chicago for very long but I'm happy they're here now. Pours a pretty yellow-gold with white head. Looks gorgeous. Aroma is great. I get a nice blend of funk and tart. A really nice blend of funky, citrus and lemony tartness. Getting a nice, slight hint of funky cheese. Flavor leans more on the Lacto tartness and finishes really nice and dry. Wouldn't call it assertively sour, but I would say this is slightly sour as opposed to slightly tart, if that makes any sense. There's a slight puckering affect on the palate that reminds me of Warheads once I was accustomed to them. Mouthfeel is full of prickly carbonation. Really good beer and I look forward to trying all their other beers that are available here.

Poured into a snifter. A hazy, bright golden color. Large and fluffy white head that gradually settled into a wispy cap. Really nice aroma: lemons, hay, some funk, wheat, cherries. Fairly tart on the palate with a nice complex mix of the notes on the nose. Lemony funk is how I would best describe this. The feel was great with increased carbonation but light on the palate and easy to drink. Very well-done.
