GABF Day 0 - Trinity Brewing Co.
We arrived at Trinity right around 5, so it was still fairly slow. We grabbed a table near the bar and quickly dove into their GABF tap list. In addition to around 10 taps of their own house beers, around 25 additional taps hosted beers from Colorado and around the country. While the guest taps were enticing, we were here for Trinity. Trinity specializes in wild fermentation, but that doesn't necessarily mean all of their beers are sour.
My second beer was the Farmhouse du Base, which was lighter in the alcohol department. The Farmhouse du Base seemed to be in the saison style, but again, a lighter summer beer with only mild tart notes. The beer quickly greeted me with the aroma of fresh green apple skins, a saison funk and a slight sensation of hay. The body was very creamy and carried a dominate granny smith apple flavor with lemon, pepper, wheat, banana and clove in the background. Not as heavy as a wheat, not as spicy as a saison, but somewhere in between.
