COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The simplicity of Trillium’s grist of barley and wheat delivers a wonderfully complex yet still approachable beer. The house blend of farmhouse yeasts and Columbus and US Goldings hops drive a distinctive character in this rustic, unfiltered ale. A beautiful nose of spice and pepper, coupled with flavors of fermentation-derived fruit and more pepper. Firm bitterness, nicely carbonated with a dry finish, but there’s also a wonderful smoothness in the mouthfeel from the wheat.

On tap at Lord Hobo. Cloudy yellow pour with a white head. Wheat and floral aromas. Florally notes with the creamy smooth wheat characteristics. Mild spices. Might not actually be a wheat beer, but that’s the best way I can describe the mouthfeel. Which is good by the way. Nice body.

ROBC3366 (612) - north reading, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Pours a hazy yellow golden color with a finger or so of white sticky foam. Lots of yeasty esters, clove, lemon peel, peppery spice some rustic sourdough malts and a hint of floral honey. Mouthfeel is a bit full for the style but the flavors and yeast profile are nicely integrated. Decent offering. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

>> Came in here for a pint, no dice. Growler filling station only. Sparkling gold pour, great foam, great lace. Sweet banana and pear esters. Taste is clean, light pear, banana, chalk. Palate is fluffy, dusty, malty, clean pale malt grist. Love that.

750ml bottle pours cloudy toasted orange with 2 finger head. Nose is spicy yeast, notes of orange, wet grains, wheat. Taste is yeast forward, earthy cracker and light bready malt, some peppery spice, some orange, banana notes. Finish is dry earthy bread, grains, spices, yeasty fruit. Pretty standard, if not a little boring...
