I get tired rating really good to great brews from Trillium. I have been there twice now and have not rated a beer under 4. Hell I don’t get close to JUST a four. I am to far away in Maine to get there more than once or twice a summer season. Trillium, then Tree House, then Hill Farmstead. How’s that for a trifecta!!!!!

Decanted from a 16 oz (473 ml) can into a conical pint glass; canned 10/06/17.
A: Pours a hazy, tawny (golden brown) color with a three quarter inch head, moderate retention, and soapy lacing. Yeast evident in the glass.
S: Aromas of orange citrus and spices evident. Not sure I can detect the grape.
T: Palate largely follow the nose. Not sure that I am really detecting the grape flavor directly, although I can convince myself I am. I think the real payoff vis a vis flavor in the relative mild, yet complex flavor picture, which is not so typical of the NEDIPA style. Bitterness fairly light and in excellent balance. It is a refreshing change from the sometimes overly "loud" flavors.
M: Light to medium bodied with robust carbonation. Clean, frankly briny finish.
O: Really a one of a kind flavor experience. As I have observed prior, Trillium comes through yet again in a flavor forward manner. Kudos!

Had this on tap at the Publick House. The beer had a murky, orange color with thick lacing but a thin head. White wine grapefruit was pretty apparent with the smell, but it had with it some orangepeel and other citrus smells. The white wine taste with its flavoring was pretty strong; it covered the first sip to the aftertaste pretty well. This beer was also served pretty carbonated. Overall, a really good aroma that seemed too strong with its taste.

Great color and aroma of white wine, tropical fruit, and citrus. Taste of grassy hop, lime, and pineapple and Pinot Gris juice. Light bitterness at the finish.
