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.

ben4321 (4827) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 14, 2015

Location: 750 ml bottle from the brewery, 8/14/15

Aroma: The aroma is spicy and peppery saison yeast with some underlying fruity notes
Appearance: It pours a hazy yellowish color with a bubbly white head and drippy lacing
Flavor: It tastes similar, spice forward, lots of yeast flavor, light, fruity hops playing second fiddle
Palate: The body is medium, its got a lively carbonation, and a mid-dry close
Overall Impression: This is a very solid saison. Not quite up to the level of their pale, but few beers are. Good, well-made, and fairly flavorful. That about sums it up.

Fresh bottle from the brewery. Slightly cloudy light gold yellow. Heavy lacing. Nose of wheat, light orange citrus, perfumy with belgian yeast esters. Some spice and pepper, and a dry minerality that seperates it from a lot of saisons, with a wheaty, bitter finish.

PhatB420 (733) - Pittsfield, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 13, 2015
Super bomber into a large Belgian. Great voluptuous head, cloud white, inch and a half, solid lacing all over. Pours a hazed sunflower orange. Cloudy with hay in the background. Aroma of spicy orange pepper. Sour Mellon, white grapes, hops. Taste of the same, dry grapes and wine, smooth tart finish with bitter melon prevalent. Sour green apples punch in, say hello, then peel their skin and leave it. Pepper is omitted throughout. Crab apple feel as well. Alright.
