Notes / Commercial Description:
This iteration of Broken Angel was fermented with our Native New England mixed-culture and aged in new American oak foeders for one year before re-fermenting atop Plums and Raspberries. Red Broken Angel has a hazy deep red color with aromas of raspberry preserves, candied fruits and kiwi. The palate contains a lemony tartness, an intense overripe plum flavor, and light oak that adds structure. Immensely drinkable and the perfect beverage as warmer weather approaches!

MALT: Pilsner, Dextrose

HOPS: Sterling

Had on tap at Canton. Pours hazy, reddish brown in color with minimal head. Taste is big raspberries, strawberry, sour mix and light banana and plum as the beer warms. Very tart but with underlying sweetness and a medium light body. Very tasty, complex sour ale. Much better than regular Broken Angel. Nice sipper, one that I will look for again.

750 mL bottle. Pours a reddish pink body. No real head. Smells of raspberries, plums, strong yeast. Almost plastic aroma. Tastes pretty tart. Plum sourness is most prominent. Raspberry tartness behind it. Yeast comes through a little in the finish and aftertaste with a bit of oak. Aftertaste has some of that yeast plastic flavor. Medium heavy. Well carbonated. Fruity and drinkable, but not anything I need to have much of.

Pale red in color, with a fast fading head and moderate lacing. The plum, raspberry, and barrel really come out in this highly drinkable and refreshing wild ale. Moderate tart and mouthfeel.

This one pours a dark bubbly pink-ish red, with a one inch head, and a good bit of lacing.

This smells nicely of plums and raspberries, but it also has an odd smell that was initially tough to pin down. I eventually pinned it down as pencil shavings from a pencil sharpener, and woodchips.

The fruit flavor in this one is really nice. There's only a little bit of plum, and way more raspberry flavors. The sourness is moderate, nothing crazy. However, that weird aroma does translate to the flavors- it's really like old pencil shavings, and it's not the best thing for this beer. You don't really get any clue that the base to this beer is a tripel.

This is medium bodied, fairly crisp, with a good level of carbonation.

This has potential that wasn't quite achieved.

Not quite sure how a beer with 14 ratings between 5 and 4.1 can have an 88 rating on BA; as a novice with wild ale that has been trying to enjoy them more lately, I have appreciated how Trillium manages to balance the funkiness that often turned me off from other wild ales

This beer poured a darker golden orange color into my tulip glass. Perhaps a little less red than i figured for color for a beer with raspberries and plums.
The nose is acidic but not overly so to me with more raspberry than plum coming through.
The taste is to me is tart but not overly with a taste of sweet fruit coming through. To me the raspberry is first with the plum in the back. The sweetness to me comes from the raspberries.
The mouthfeel is crisp with a nice amount of carbonation.
This to me is a well done wild ale with the flavors of the fruit coming through. From the earlier reviews I read from when this beer was released I think some cellar time has allowed this beer to age for the better.
