Appearance is cloudy yellow like lemonade. Not much head. Very nice lacing.

Nose is funky. Very sour. Expired fruit. Yeast.

Taste has a lot of oak, light lemon zest, white grapes, lemonade.

Mouthfeel is refreshing, good carbonation.

Overall, easy and challenging. Worth a try.

375mL bottle poured into a Belgian tulip.

The color on this beer as I pour it is pretty remarkable. It resembles white wine or champagne more than any beer. The color is lighter than a pils and crystal clear, or at least that's the case until the bottom of the bottle at which point some yeast made its way into my pour. The head is a light and delicate yet abundant and foamy behemoth that leaves patches of lace behind. 4.75

Smells like Trinity. Reminds me a lot of the Swingline beers I love. Unripened mango or pineapple and grapefruit zestiness. The funk is on some George Clinton levels. Tartness has some bite on it. Very well-rounded aroma. 4.25

Lots of yeasty flavor on the tongue initially in the way of a floral, bitter blast. This gives way to the unripened mango and some passionfruit mid-palate. Closer to the finish are some wine qualities, grapey with a yeast quality more resemblant of wine. I'd like a bit less floral flavor but otherwise I like this. 3.75

Floral flavor and heavy floral feel. It's got a bitter quality that's a tad disagreeable. The body though is great, medium but still light and drinkable. Tartness hits mid-palate and mixes with some funkiness. 3.75

Wine-like qualities meet funky saison qualities. Good stuff.

one of the better collaboration beers i have had period, let alone mention one of the best trinity beers, and green bench beers by themselves, this is awesome and i am glad and thankful they took the time to do it. the nose is real stereotypical trinity brewing, and a matter of fact so is the look. its thick and murky and almost gross out of the bottle, and it smells wild but raw, highly unrefined and almost savage, in the old school way. as far as nelson hops are concerned, im not sure this is an adequate representation, although the beer tastes delicious, and as good as any of the green bench solo stuff thats come around recently. bretty all the way, carbonated to high heaven like a champagne forgotten about warm, and tangy in exactly the right amount to compliment the hops. east coast and raw, but very trinity in its yeast. i think this beer is unique but not quite worth the price tag. i mean, delicious, almost desert island good, but not for this sum, and not with this level of yeasty weirdness in the bottom third. great beer though, unlikely partners, and really and truly and honestly worth picking up if the hoppy wilds are your thing. they are definitely mine at the moment and this one scratches an itch!!!
