Our rye centric farmhouse red ale. Ample malt and fermentation-derived aromatics and flavors of plum, raisin, apricot, white pepper. Wood and earthy spice from the hops. Certainly a deep malt profile with a dry rumminess on the finish from the turbinado sugar, luxurious creamy mouthfeel.

Bacterial (1552) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Dark copper pour with an off-white head. Slightly spicy nose, big spicy taste and a clean dry finish. Very nice - I think this is one they’ve been working on refining, based on some of the earlier reviews.

ClarkVV (3892) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 18, 2014
Draught at Tip Tap Room, 4/13/14
Dark amber-cherry colored beer with a small, light beige head that shows moderate to poor retention.
Soft, fruity hoppiness in the nose shows off light ruby red grapefruit, oranges, cherries and some spicy rye notes as well. Touches of pale and carramel malts with an odd buttery-sweet note that must be from the turbinado (it’s not diacetyl). Some light fruity yeast esters and moderate phenolics are notable but nothing is too strong or overbearing here.
The mouthfeel is pretty tight on this, with a soft, malty texture and engaging carbonation. Another one of their hoppy pale and saison hybrids and but for the strange peanut butter and banana note (about as close as I can get to describing it), it works pretty well. Hoppiness is fruity, lightly bitter and well done as always from Trillium. A bit on the sweet side, the creaminess sort of exacerbating that. Good, but what the hell is that strange peanut buttter-banana note?

Fritz123 (1012) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Draft at Lord Hobo in Cambridge, MA. Tulip. Pours a deep golden red with a huge fluffy white head. The aroma was rye, fruity esters, a little farmhouse funk, and fruits. The taste was not as farmhouse as I was expecting. You got the rye, fruits, and sweetness primarily. A little bit of funk and earth. It was more mild than I was expecting. Medium body and carbonation.
