I am in drinking Blueberry Super Soak by Trillium Brewing Company, a Regional Brewery in Canton. Blueberry Super Soak is an American Wild Ale, with an ABV of 7.1 and IBU of 0. I gave this beer a 3.75 on Untappd’s 5 point rating system.

BREWER’S NOTES

Super Soak: our Soak series amped up with a bigger malt bill, increased ABV, and twice the amount of fruit as Soak. While still sour, the higher ABV in Super Soak serves to moderate the lactic acid formation.

We ferment the base beer with 60% wheat in large oak foeders for several months. Fermentation duties are shared gracefully between our house lactobacillus strain and our Native New England mixed culture. Loosely inspired by the cold-maceration process used in winemaking, we blend fruit directly into the foeders to “soak” for a deep extraction of unique colors, aromatics, and flavors and a refermentation.

Blueberries lend a tart, rich flavor profile, and a deep plum purple hue. The nose teases with aromas of blueberry cobbler, berries, and hints of baking spice. Moderate to heavy acidity is backed up with sweetness from the blueberries and a subtle earthy undertone.

I am in PJ’s Pancake House, drinking Mosaic Cutting Tiles by Trillium Brewing Company. Trillium Brewing Company is a Regional Brewery in Canton, MA. Mosaic Cutting Tiles beer style is IPA – Imperial / Double, with an ABV of 8.5% and IBU of 0. I gave Mosaic Cutting Tiles a 4 on Untappd’s 5 point rating system.

At lunch with a former Squibb colleague. Good with bacon and eggs. Thank you @Angel C.

Brewer’s notes

Cutting Tiles is an exploratory series of Double IPA’s featuring a range of aromatic single hop varietals brewed with raw wildflower honey. This version is dosed with 100% Mosaic in all kettle, whirlpool and two massive dry hop additions. The local wildflower honey keeps the body light and drinkable but provides a floral, earthy backbone. Juicy, candied peach and nectarine up front backed up with a nuanced white wine character on the nose that continues straight through in the flavor profile. Pillowy soft mouthfeel, with a restrained bitterness on the finish. New variants to follow!

We are a family owned and operated brewery in the Fort Point Channel neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts. We created Trillium to realize our dream of bringing creative and flavorful beers to you. These beers are what we envision might have been made today, if a centuries old beer culture had naturally evolved in New England. To achieve this vision, we stand our craft beers on the shoulders of native ingredients and artisan practices, balancing them with modern-day expertise.

I am in Skillman, NJ, drinking Cooks Illustrated IPA by Trillium Brewing Company. Trillium Brewing Company is a Regional Brewery in Canton, MA. Cooks Illustrated IPA beer style is IPA – American, with an ABV of 7.4% and IBU of 0. I gave Cooks Illustrated IPA a 4.25 on Untappd’s 5 point rating system.

Brewer’s notes

To celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Cook’s Illustrated we got together with their team for a cross-industry collaboration. Illustrated IPA celebrates our shared focus on process and technique, while recognizing the distinct impact that the magazine had on Trillium co-founders JC and Esther Tetreault along their culinary and homebrewing journey.

This recipe showcases ingredients from both coasts – an array of malts from Hadley, MA’s Valley Malt and singularly features El Dorado hops from Washington State. The beer pours a deep and hazy shade of yellow with a tight white head. Aromas of stone fruit and citrus lead off, with an underlying tropical note that increasingly reveals itself as you enjoy the beer. Layers of fruity sweetness hit on the palate with a note of balancing bitterness and floral spice from the Valley Malt Danko rye. Medium bodied and refreshing, with a pleasant drinkability.
