Notes / Commercial Description:
For this wild offering, we rack our flagship farmhouse ale, Trillium, to age in neutral oak casks with a house Bug Blend of yeasts. Appearance is bright yellow-golden with light, gentle carbonation. Moderately funky and slightly tart, but not sour, Wild Trillium expresses subtle tannic structure with delicate notes of light citrus, pepper, and hay. Mouthfeel is soft and the finish is dry, crisp and tannic.

HOPS: US Goldings, Columbus
