Bright aromatics of overripe peach, orange rind, and green, herbal hops flood the nose while balanced flavors of tropical fruit, citrus, and creamy wheat excite the palate. Refreshingly light bodied with a soft, fluffy mouthfeel, Pier finishes dry with a slightly mineral bitterness.

16oz can. Pours a barely hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma is peach, orange, orange peel, light pineapple, melon, a tiny bit of onion, and some wheat. Taste is peach, herbs, orange, resin, dough, light melon, some bread, a little garlic, and a little wheatiness. Bitter, mineral finish - the weakest part of the beer. Light-medium body. Moderate but slightly prickly carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel. Fairly IPA-like. Wheat presence is very light.

Tasted from can. Pours a hazy gold with white head. Nice fruity aroma. Lots of orange, peach and lemon. Also some grassy notes. Well balanced taste. Citrus and tropical flavors with a hint of wheat notes. Really tastes like a New England ipa. Very well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy golden orange pour. A beautiful ipa masquerading as an “American wheat ale.” Stanky Citra and Galaxy, body is a touch fizzy, otherwise superb. 4.3++

Thnx to Geoff. currently rated the best wheat ale in the world, highest rated i had is like 15. So pretty curious about it. Rock my world, trillium ! Drank from the can. Smell is intensely hopped ( quite 'green', floral, tad fruity ) Taste is sharp, fresh bitter, crunchy maltyness ( not really very wheat-intense to me ) mostly hoppy, of course, with it being fruity and floral at the same time. Ends rather fast ( not much hops survive to the aftertaste ) mildly bitter ending. Pretty good, but like I said, I might have expected more wheat in this, and less hops, for it to be truly ' the best wheat ale' . This is a damn fine IPA, with wheat, to me.

16 oz. can from mark000 - thanks again, Mark! Pours a hazy gold with a small white head that settles into a ring and three small islands of film. Notes of orange citrus, wheat and doughy malts, pineapple, apricot, florals; more fruit and bitterness in the flavor, and the aroma is drier and wheatier. Light-medium bodied, with low carbonation and a fruity, bitter mouthfeel. Really nice. I had no doubt this would be a god tier wheat ale.

weihenweizen (4127) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - AUG 22, 2017
Refrigerated 16 oz. aluminum can poured into a glass. Hazy golden with small white head. Aroma is citus hops, medium body, and little lacing. Taste is citrus hops, herbal hops, and esters.

bookman10 (1211) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - AUG 11, 2017
Pours a hazy, light banana yellow, with minimal head. Aroma seems a bit muted, with some grassiness, some pine/spruce hops. Flavor is quite bitter, and, surprisingly, not all that different from some of their IPAs and pale ales. There’s a lot of citrus, some tropical fruit, some hop bitterness. Kind of weird, chemically finish and aftertaste to this one. Mouthfeel a bit more watery than other Trillium offerings.

czar (9430) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 10, 2017
couple of cans. pours cloudy grey-golden with a nice creamy white cap offering some retention and lacing. dans wet tropical hops, pale melon, flavorfull mangoes, lightly sulphuric citra, just a tad more peppery wheat than numerous of their other brew, candied onions and garlic. moderate carbonation, light body - oily; balanced tropical-citrusy finish. wheat is clearly over-shadowed by hefty hop bill, but eh, this makes a very solid wheat neipa.
