BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Trillium Brewing Company
Massachusetts, United States
trilliumbrewing.com

Style: Saison / Farmhouse Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
The most hop-forward in our series of Super Saisons, Galaxy Dry Hopped Sunshower is juicy and herbal, yet dry and peppery on the finish. Beautifully haze-straw colored in appearance with an earthy, pineapple aroma, this is a farmhouse offering that will delight any hop-head. The spicy, fermentation-driven character of our farmhouse yeast is subdued by the intensity of the Galaxy hops, which impart strong flavors of grapefruit and peach.

MALT: Pilsner, White Wheat, Flaked Wheat

HOPS: Galaxy, Columbus

Pours a lovely hazy yellow-gold color with a tall fluffy head of 2 fingers. Lots of nice lace on the glass as it recedes.

Tons of lemony hop on the nose with some honeydew, ripe grapefruit, passion fruit, and ripe "other" citrus.

Nice toasted biscuit malt coming forth with lots of nice peppery lemony galaxy hop, some orange peel, and then the sweet, silky peppery saison strain at the end. Lots of lemon pepper notes.

Feel is creamy and smooth, contrasting with a sharp and piking carbonation with a popping and slightly dry finish.

Overall, a really great saison with lots to offer. Definitely seek this out.

Tall can, 10/20/17 so a few months in the can

Pours heavily hazed, n creamy looking , lasting cap, leaves some spotty lace.

Yeasty, orangy notes on the nose.

Pleasing hopped up n fruity saison...oranges, lemons, light pepper, yeasty goodness...bring on the arugula, cheese and crusty bread.

Do like this variant better than the original (Amarillo?) but I still struggle with the beer's concept. Great hop flavor but doesn't blend well for me with the saison yeast and finish. Heavy handing the hops doesn't work in all instances and would prefer a better saison than just a really hoppy one. Still really dig their pales and IPAs. Farmhouses good but I wouldn't go after this again.

Pours a cloudy orange with lots of carbonation, thick head and sticky lacing. Nose is light citrus with some flower and hops. The taste is very refreshing and full, loads of hops mixed with nice citrus and semi sweet floral. A slight bite on the finish, but very clean and easy drinking.

Really hazy bright yellow color with slightly off-white head. Aroma has dank hops, herbal yeast notes and a touch of fermented fruits. Taste is sweet at first, fruity, slightly tart, yeasty but not cloying in any way. Medium body and carbonation. Really easy drinking for the high ABV.

Decanted from a 16 oz (473 ml) can into a beer snifter; produced on 10/20/2017.
A: Pours a hazy, dark orange tinged gold with a quarter inch, foamy white head, little retention or lacing.
S: The aroma is a fruit melange of peach, mango, and orange citrus, cracked grain, peppercorn, beef drippings, and a oregano.
T: The taste is far more understated and, frankly, less flavorful, than the smell. Bitterness and herbal notes really overpower all other flavors.
M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Creamy.
O: I found this to a somewhat less than normally flavorful saison, a style I usually enjoy.

Great quality beer, in keeping with the Trillium traditional taste. I'm not a Saison fan but was pleasantly surprised by this. Worth trying.

Best saison i have ever had. It could attribute to the love of galaxy, but still. Amazing.
