October 2017 - Bottle share at One Canada Square. Huge thanks! As 'Trillium Wild Sinister Kid - Blackcurrants', 11.0%. Dark purple, opaque, dark purple head leaves streaky lacing. Aroma is huge ribena, blackcurrants and blackberries. All sorts of dark berry stuff. Nice start. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is tart berries, blackcurrants, undiluted blackcurrant squash, blackberries, little acidic into the finish. One of the better Trillium sours for certain. (9-4-7-3-16=3.9)

Bottle, picked up at the Skin Cancer Festival / Trillium tap take over at Beavertown earlier this year. Pours a muddy, deep, beetroot juice purple. Thin and sticky, lasting, beige head. Dem legs. Nose has thick, rich, blackcurrant purée. Lots of vanilla here, from the oak, presumably. Some ripe plum and sticky date. Bit of caramel. Bit of new leather. All of that stuff. Taste is sweet and juicy, with an oaky, blackcurrant tanginess. Unbelievably smooth mouthfeel, that never feels the ABV. It’s basically oak aged, 11% Ribena. I could do a disgraceful amount of this. Stunning. GlasgowTAD (2015) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - NOV 17, 2017
Pours deep burgundy, almost completely opaque with a small tinge of a purple head. Aroma is black currants and blackcurrant liqueur. Taste is rum sweet, huge black currant jam, alco hot finish. Tasted like gluhwein. Leighton (23406) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2017
Bottle shared in Canary Wharf - courtesy of the Team. Pours a compelling bloody red-purple with a foamy, off-white head. The nose holds jammy currants, berries, a little wood. Light to medium sweet flavour with moderate acidity, grapes, black currants, a little alcohol, some pleasant woody dryness. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Quenching finish, with more black currants, blueberries, light lemon and salt. Outstanding. MrTipple (7490) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2017
