Notes: Collaboration with Trillium Brewing Company

Street Green was one of our favorite early collabs with our friends Trillium Brewing Company which was released almost 4 years ago. It seemed like it was finally time to revisit it. We decided to brew a big version of the original, plus we've made a lot of changes in our processes since that time, so this is an updated version with the core ingredients intact. Brewed with Maris Otter and wheat and hopped with Amarillo, Simcoe, Galaxy and Ekuanot.

Street Green.

It was the beer that put Other Half on the map and it was the last release I missed at the brewery in a two-year span. Never had a can of it and it was hyped by anyone who was lucky enough to get a can. When this was released, I wanted to have it to see if it lived up to my anticipation of it. It was much brighter than I expected from a "green" beer as the wheat gave it a lively taste and body and the hops were juicy and familiar than in some of their well-known offerings.

Not a bad pour to this as the liquid was dank, melon hue with a bit of light seeping in around the outside of it. A decent head topped it off as the lacing left behind was thin and wavy with the bulk being mostly concentrated along the top third of my pint glass. Citrus pith, earthy hops, bright wheat, and sweet honey were in the nose as the taste was just as bright, sweet, and slick with some mild dankness, chewiness, and exotic fruit thrown into the mix as well. Easy to savor, it was strong but never did this feel like something that had 10% ABV in it as the wheat and hops used in this were enough to take the edge off of this beer.

There wasn't a lot of carbonation too although this never felt too heavy on the palate. I wish I had the original iteration of this for comparison's sake but alas, that's not meant to be. For those unaccustomed to Other Half, this would be a great introduction to their offerings as it was well-rounded, nicely crafted, and most importantly, enjoyable. So glad to get a can of this and to have it hold up well from last summer - the hype was certainly worth it!
