2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
(Draught) Pours a hazy yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of herbs, garbage can on pickup day, and rotten citrus. Flavor of grass, herbs, nuts, yeast, and earth. Not sure what happened to this beer, but not up to standard for Trinity.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Head is initially small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing.
Body is medium yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers), with a strong note of lemon juice, lesser notes of peppercorns, oak, sour apple.
Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately to heavily acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, moderately to heavily acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Light body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation, lightly to moderately astringent.
Trinityís least expensive bottled beer so far, and a pretty interesting take on the genre. Sour as hell, pretty close to true lambic sourness, which is by far the most notable (and enjoyable) thing about it. The nose is mostly lemon juice, but the milder aspects are pleasant as well (no noticeable off notes, and I can barely tell itís spiced). Instantly vanishing fizzy head, and the very light, watery, fizzy body isnít too much fun to drink, but overall itís a pretty neat concoction and I certainly applaud the effort of going old skool.

From a bottle at 4th Annual Boulder SourFest (2013). Hazy yellow pour with a small white head and decent lacing. Big floral, lavender aroma, lightly spicy, doughy, straw, honey, hibiscus, and fruity. Taste is bretty, tropical fruits, pineapples, somewaht herbal, wheaty, citric acid, medicinal characteristics, and mangos with a lightly tart - very dry - finish. Light body with high carbonation. Damn tasty saison - tart and refreshing, white wine-like, balanced nicely with white pepper notes. Delicious!

Sample at GABF 10/11/2012, thanks to Bluemeow76 for assistance with note-taking. The beer pours a clear golden color with a medium thin and foamy white head and small patches of lacing. Aroma of yeast, malt and spice. Light body with flavors of sweet fruit, yeast and grainy malt. The finish is sweet and fruity. Decent overall.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy opaque honey-gold with a generous lasting foamy white head. Aroma is full of doughy yeast, some sort of citrusy tropical fruit like tangerine or something, and dusty bubblegum. The flavor has a lot of hay and light pale graininess, with that bubblegum tone again, with a touch of yeasty banana...itís like a Saison with hefe yeast or something. Dry finishing with a grainy yeasty linger.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Trinity - turbid gold - fluffy head - nose is medium dry, with spicy hops, moderate yeastiness and strong phenols, some of which are welcome (white pepper) and some not (light plastic) - flavor is very yeasty, lightly tart, almost hefe-like up front - but then some crispness arrives, some dry, Biscuity malt, moderate phenolic character - a little flawed, but overall relatively enjoyable.
