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.

When I think saison, I think this. They hit the style spot on. Slight funk from the farmhouse yeast, peppery, wheaty, bubbly carbonation, and some nice hop bitterness. Faded gold color with huge fluffy head. Solid.

A very hoppy saison. Very good, but might’ve been even better with a bit less bitterness. Funk aftertaste, mild tartness. Plenty of yeasty spice notes. Resin, spruce hops.

50belair (2488) - Florida, USA - JUL 20, 2014
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.

[ Keg ][ 2oz ][ Trillium ][ Free ][ Plastic Cup ][ 5.29.14 ]
>> 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.
