Trinity Brewing Company One Ear

Aroma: “Moderate peppery note with light fruity esters. As it warms, a big grapefruit note. Low pale malt presence. Tangerine, guava, and white grape. This has a strong white-wine character to it. Some underlying earthy hops.”

Flavor: “Moderate grapefruit flavor with a tartness and spiciness that extend into the aftertaste. Moderate bitterness and moderate carbonation. Hops dominate this beer. Huge white-wine character that’s citrusy and tropical. Seems like it would be sweet, but overall sweetness is fairly low and transitions into a pleasant acidity and bitterness. Dry finish is very clean with a touch of bitterness.”

Overall: “Would like a bit more balance in the spiciness and a little less carbonation. Mild astringent notes toward the end of the sip linger into the aftertaste. Very fruity even for a saison with a big white-wine character and underlying citrus and tropcial fruit. Dry finish makes this very drinkable.”
