12.7 ounce bottle. Served in a tulip, the beer pours a slightly hazy light gold color with a half inch white head that didn’t stick around for very long. There’s a decent amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like green apples, vinegar, white grapes/wine, and some funk. I think the taste is pretty much the same as the aroma, but with the flavors being less intense in comparison. There’s also a bit of a grainy/bready malt and herbal flavor noticeable. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s coating with a low/moderate amount of carbonation. Not a bad beer at all, but I thought it smelled better than it tasted. $6.49 a bottle.

375 from CBS. Nose is amazing with hints of funky brett b characters like light horse. Light completion with lovely white head. Taste is rather subtle and smoothly crisp on the palate then some very light fruit notes come out with a small wave of bitterness. Overall tartness is medium and like a medium dry cider. Very good saison!

Almost a tropical passion fruity aroma with a slight funkyness and tartness. Quite nice. Taste has the passion fruity but quite a bit of funk and some spiciness. the funk has some tropical fruitiness to it as well. It is a very nice saison and fairly complex. I like the flavors the Brett adds to the saison. Really a nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle sample at the Trinity tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 4/9/15. Clear gold in color with a medium white head. Aroma consists of corn flakes, funk, tartness and herbs. Malty and herbal flavor with brett funk and bitterness before a sweet finish.

375, capped and waxed. Pours a hazy bright medium gold with a light and moussy platinum blond head. Soft sweet grassy nose. Creamy medium body with mild carb. Light grassy mid palate, soft sweetness. Moderately dry minerally finish.

Bottle from the Beer Authority.

I saw a row of various Trinity saisons and without high expectations figured "why not?". Gotta say I hate the poorly done waxed caps.

Maize pour with a moderate white head. Intense funky aroma, quite sour, some food compost, honeydew melon with lemon. Flavor more or less follows, quite tart for a saison, not as clean as one would like but quite interesting. Some white wine character but it’s not over the top. I can’t deny that this is an interesting beer and far from your boring overly-estered, overly strong American saison. I don’t love this, but I’m intrigued by this first taste of what Trinity has to offer. I’m glad I’ve got a couple of their other saisons in the fridge.

Pours a hazy yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of funk, white wine, oak and wheat. Taste is tart, funky, grainy wheat, nice Brett presence with a oaky, dry vinous finish. Amazing saison.

375ml bottle picked up at Supermarket Liquor in CO
Pours cloudy yellow with a small white head, some lacing. Aroma of oak, brett, coriander. Taste is wheat, tart citrus, woody, salty with a dry finish
I really like this, the mouthfeel is a little thin but a great tasting beer. But WTH is up with the wax job? Maybe it is marketing, because with these lined up on the shelves they are easy to pick out. The worst waxed bottles I’ve seen, and that includes New Glarus.

Light orange with a small pale head. Aroma is orange juice, hint of spice, some brett funk. Light bodied, fruity on the palate with a nice dry finish. Taste is orange juice, brett, saison spice. Yum.
