Hazy, yet not cloudy, pour with a foamy white head that is well-retained. Pale, white-gold/lemon-skin colored body.
A lovely melange of citrus in the nose: white grapefruit, lemon-lime and even some kiwi skin (basically copying shawn’s review. Just kidding.). Light crackery malts and some dry cream of wheat is the extent of the malt/grain in the nose, leaving the hops free to roam about. They do so aromatically, but without any obnoxious acids or dirtiness.
First sip is.....sour....oh no, is this just full of yeast....oh wait that’s just the tartness from the rye I think.....thank god. Wow. Coming full circle, boy is that refreshing. Spicy rye blends with the citric hoppiness (lemon juice, heavy white grapefruit) and the texture is as soft and pillowy as can be, with the malts fully attenuated. Bitterness is snappy on the finish but not even close to overdone or out of balance. House yeast character charms and the carbonation is spot on. WHEW. Yes please. I’d like some more of this. What a summer quencher. Drank my 32oz growler in about 10 minutes. When the beer is perfectly attenuated, the hops incredibly flavorful and with no sign of resin, you can’t ask for a lot more.
As the abv decreases, the quality of the beer greatly increases at Trillium. That, my friends, is a fine, fine thing indeed.
Grooler. Juicy pineapple, musty grapefruit. Kiwi fruit. Juicy oranges. Nice. Light pink grapefruit bitterness balanced by juicy tropical fruits. Moderate dryness. Nice body. Pete’s just fine. dogfish120love (1339) - Westfield, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 9, 2014
Pours a hazy orange. Aroma of citrus and pineapple. Bone dry and somewhat bitter.
