609. Trillium Brewing Stumpy Duck

Trillium Stumpy DuckI do not make it down to Boston often but had been reading good things about Trillium Brewing. Fortunately someone that I met through my blog lives in Boston and makes regular trips back to Maine. He was nice enough to grab me a couple growlers and of course the proper glassware so I could try some Trillium beer.

This one is a wheat ale that is well hopped. Appearance is a bright yellow with a thick white head. Aroma was a nice mix of lemon, citrus and a slight sweet spiciness. Stumpy Duck is certainly a hop forward beer with lots of citrus, lemon in the taste and a fair amount of bitterness in the finish.

For my first beer from Trillium I am impressed and if you like hop forward beers than you should definitely make the trip to check them out.
