BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Trillium Brewing Company
Massachusetts, United States | website

Style: Saison / Farmhouse Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.40%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
The simplicity of Trillium’s grist of barley and wheat delivers a wonderfully complex, yet approachable, American farmhouse ale. Our house farmhouse yeast blend, along with American hops, drive a distinctive character in this rustic, unfiltered ale. Trillium expresses a beautiful nose of peppery spice, coupled with flavors of fermentation-derived fruit and more pepper. Firm bitterness and effervescent carbonation combine with a satisfyingly smooth mouthfeel from the wheat.

MALT: Pilsner, White Wheat, Flaked Wheat

HOPS: US Goldings, Columbus

Taste - Immediate herbal hop flavor. Lemon hops second. Grassy in middle. Light doughy malts. Lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel - High carbonation. Bitter. Medium body.

Overall - A little nondescript, but it's tasty.
