BEER INFO

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

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

Brilliant spicy wheat beer. Peppery notes prevail. This will be my go to summer brew. Well done Trillium.

Hazy pale golden in color with a white head. Aroma is peach, pears, bit of spice and a little sweetness. Flavors follow but the aroma is a tad better than the flavor. Just a hair sweet for me as well. But overall a really great beer.

Beautiful beer. I have to go back and re-try every Saison ever to see if this is really as good as I think it is. Amazing aroma of pear and orange, smooth flavor of warm grass, barnyard fun and a clean finish of pepper. So damn good.

L: Dark golden yellow, hazy. Pours a nice head that remains a while, leaves a light lace.
S: Nice complex aroma. HInts of citrus, pepper, grass, and wheat. Also some of those yeast esters as well. Great aroma, reminds me of a big piece of fresh dough ready to be baked.
T: Starts off with a wheat sweetness, like that of sweet bread. Shortly after you get spicier notes, peppery phenols, and a dryness of common herbs used in cooking. Has hints of lemongrass as well
F: At first, remarkably smooth, frothy and light. Like whipped cream. Finishes with a bit of bit though, from both the carbonation and the hops and spicier elements of the flavor.
O: Excellent saison. Wish there was a tad more sweetness but one of the better examples I've had. Would recommend.

From the 750 ml. bottle. Sampled on March 3, 2016. The real name of this beer is Trillium Trillium Farmhouse Ale.

The pour is a murky, foggy looking pale yellow-olive with a big white foamy head that settles back momentarily.

The aroma has an array of traditional Belgian characters such as a bold yeasty note, toasted bread, cracker, clove, pepper, apple, and pear.

Medium body.

The taste is at once traditional Belgian with a pleasant sweetness coupled with pepper, spice, apple, pear, and mildly bitter finish. Highly drinkable.
