Hops: Sterling, Galaxy, Mosaic
Yeast: Mixed fermentation of brett and custom microbes



Created in 2007, the annual De Proef Brewmaster’s 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 Boston’s 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 JC’s talents with that of De Proef’s Dirk Naudts to bring this unique collaboration to beer lovers across the country.

Jabic (563) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - JUN 15, 2017
Ar: White grapes, very vinous; bright citrus and pineapple, very pronounced; some tart acidity, lemony and wine-like. Ap: Golden yellow and hazy; small white head with medium-low retention, leaving a colony of suds, a thin haze of foam, and a solid ring. T: Tart and lemony; lots of white grapes, almost like a sauvignon blanc; moderate hay and low barnyard; lemon, lime, and grapefruit rinds; bitterness is low, with a lean, leafy hop character; on the finish it is chalky and lightly acidic, with lingering pineapple, white grape, and lime. P: Light body with high carbonation; finish is dry. O: This is a world-class saison; it has the dryness, brightness, and quaffability of a great saison; added in is a complementary wildness--pineapple, barnyard, and acidity--and some excellent hop flavors; the white grape character is really unique, too.

12oz bottle shared by Bvery, thanks buddy! Clear yellow pour. Love the aroma, citrus, hoppy, little funk. Taste is well balanced with all those things going on, like a mix of saison and IPA, light refreshing and clean. Great beer.

Bottle from Eric - thanks! Pale gold pour with a white head. Awesome aroma of peaches, pineapple, slight funk. Juicy taste with a fairly soft palate. Great.

Felsenbrau (53) - Middletown, Ohio, USA - APR 29, 2017
11.2 oz bottle. Pours bright orange-yellow with slight head and enduring lacing. Aroma of various citrus, slight yeast, grains?, perhaps some malt, crayfish from a creek?... very different than anything I’ve had before. Taste mostly of pineapple and lemon zest, some malt, alcohol. Finishes about the same, perhaps a bit more alcohol. Nice, not my favorite style, but a good farmhouse ale.

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.

Tasted from bottle. Pours a murky pale yellow with thick rocky white head. Aroma is very citrusy. Huge lemon with some orange. Taste has a nice mild sour tart with light sweet balance. Flavors of lemon, orange, coriander, mango, sour funk and spices. Very well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
