IPA Primitif– Ever had an extremely hoppy sour beer before (sour, as in Lacto… Bretta does not create sour flavors)… The answer is NO! You have never had a super hopped sour beer, because the microbes that make the ’cheek puckering sour’ are extremely sensitive to hops! We’ve figured out a method to get around these sensitivities and developed a 100 IBU brew fermented with Lacto and Bretta, aged in barrels, and then dry hopped.

This Third installment in our Office Space themed ’Case of the Mondays Series,’ uses a unique double fermentation (warm with Lactobacillus delbrueckii in the kettle then cool with a special Bretta). This sour/wild beer is extremely hoppy, barrel aged, and dry hopped. Focus of this beer is decidedly fruit (think ruby red grapefruit), from the choice to use mosaic hops, citra hops, Amarillo, coriander, and tangerine zest.

bottle shared by minderbinder, thanks bro! pours light but bright golden with a small creamy white cap, reviving and leaving some lacing. funky citrus - tangerine, dill, not overwhelming buttery barrel, strawberry fruitiness, red grapes, spicy maltiness - rustic cereals; spices. light carbonation, light body - slightly watery; dry, gently tart and woodsy-spicy finish. complex flora, nice tangerine flavors, good use of french oak. good stuff.

caramel gold cloudy pour. Aroma lemons, lychee, acetic acid. Tastes briny, tart, minerals, cheese. mid sour. slight tomatoes grassy hops some doughiness. slight bitter nowhere near 100ibu. really well balanced. Palate is a bit odd syrupy and prickly.

hazy gold-orange, fizzy white cap dies quick, light effervescence at sides of the glass. Bright mango nose is balanced by must and light rind, a bit too sweet in gummy dullness. Ultra bright profile is more balanced, sour white grapefruit up front alongside cobweb and must, dry papery bitterness from the hops growing mid before sweeter fruit (mango, tangerine, some zest) and lactic acid dominate in thin, lightly jowl-tingling sour finish. A little too slick from the acid and band-aid hints growing mid with warmth, but ultra bright and supremely effervescent.

italianjohn (2489) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2015
Golden orange pour with a thin white head .... Aroma of tangerine zest, citra grapefruit juice and mosaic lemony hops .... Taste is rindy and of lemon rinds, grapefruits, citra/orange, tangerine wow a fruit explosion. Kind of hard to these flavor are from hops ..... Tart tangy and dry finish with a lingering bitterness ..... Mouthfeel is oily ... Sour and tart brew. Definitely lives up to the billing

wchesser (1476) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 28, 2015
Cloudy brown with some reddish hue. Perfumy hops, tropical brett and hop aromas. Lightly tart, wet wood, pineapple, citrus/pine/tropical/floral hops. Very complex and balanced at the same time. Probably the best of Trinity’s standard beers by a long shot.

Pour on tap at Avery Sourfest 2014, hazy orange-red pour with white head, aroma brought nice notes of mango, tropical fruit, passion fruit into a bit of tart lemon, oak, funky notes into a bit of cheese, some bready, biscuity notes with a nice citrus component. Taste was a mix of funk, grapefruit, tart lemon, orange, hints of nice funky, zesty notes into passionfruit, mango, some slight lacto, finishing slightly bitter, tart. Very tasty.
