A farmhouse style ale featuring pronounced ripe notes of pineapple and peaches in the nose balanced by hints of dry hop aroma. A unique blend of wild yeast and bugs creates a subtle and pleasing earthiness to the nose and on the palate. It has considerable finesse and pleasantly thirst quenching.

Malts: Pilsner, malted white wheat, blend of oats, wheat, rye, barley
Hops: Sterling, Galaxy, Mosaic
Yeast: Mixed fermentation of brett and custom microbes



Created in 2007, the annual De Proef Brewmasters Collaboration series has featured some of the most notable brewers and breweries in the United States. It has been consistently noted for both quality and creativity and was a forerunner to the numerous collaborations which now dot the brewing landscape.

For the 10th anniversary collaboration, we have selected the newest and perhaps smallest brewer to ever participate in this series - Jean-Claude Tetreault of Trillium Brewing Company in Boston.

In only its third year of operation, Trillium has taken the brewing world by storm. Boston Magazine named Trillium Bostons Best Brewery and a remarkable 21 of the Trillium beers rate at the 98th percentile and above on RateBeer. They have just opened their 2nd brewery in the Boston suburb of Canton to quench the thirst and demand from New England beer lovers. It is our great pleasure to combine JCs talents with that of De Proefs Dirk Naudts to bring this unique collaboration to beer lovers across the country.

Bottle from Beer Frog. Pours a mildly hazy yellow-orange with a white head. Nose is lemon, slight bread, grassy, persimmon, and white grapefruit with a hint of guava paste and some fruity Brett. Flavor hits with lemon, grass, guava, mild fruit, and some sweet Brett. Medium in body, light to medium carbonation, and a nice pairing of hops and yeast.
