Notes / Commercial Description:
We brew Deciduous to welcome the return of Autumn and celebrate New England's changing foliage. This imperial red ale is russet-amber and fills the nose with pleasant aromas of fresh baked bread, pine sap, and floral citrus. Deciduous embodies the seasonal transition from summer to winter with an earth, lemon and spicy pine aroma balanced on the palate with a hearty malt character and clean, refreshing bitterness. Deciduous is medium in body and dry on the finish.

HOPS: Centennial, Columbus

16oz can poured into a snifter

Pours a murky amber-brown color with a small foamy white head. Smells of citrus and piney hops, caramel malt & toasted bread. Taste pretty much follows the nose. Medium body and carbonation, foamy finish. This one seems to be an internal struggle of deciding if it wants to be an amber or a brown, seemed a bit overhauled for the style

Bottled dated 10/13/15 (Trillium needs a better bottle dater though, too many smudged dates lately); drank in a 16 oz tumbler on 10/24/15; i typically do not love this style but this is the best "red ale" i have ever had; much more in line with Trillium's specialty, it is much less malty, "red", and bitter than many hoppy ambers; finally, it is amazing that this beer is 8%, drinks so easy for the style; prost Trillium!
