Notes / Commercial Description:
Our series of New-England saisons continues with Lineage Rye, a wild ale featuring Valley Malt Danko Rye. This rare Danish rye grain provides a subtle and balancing malt backbone to compliment the complex characteristics derived from aging in oak barrels with our wild yeast blend. Lineage Rye is medium in body and pours a deep, yellow-golden hue with engaging aromatics of mild brett-funk, spicy fruit, tart lemon peel, and oaky-vanilla. Following the nose, flavors of tart citrus fruit, mellow sour berry, faintly funky must, and soft oak intertwine with a supplementing bready, rye depth. Lineage Rye will age nicely with nuanced flavors slowly developing over time.

MALT: Pilsner, Valley Danko Rye, Flaked Wheat

HOPS: US Goldings

750ml bottle dated 16-Nov-2017

Pours hazy gold with a dense creamy pillowy white foam head. Smells like funky oak, grainy rye spice, tart lemon, vanilla, slight berry, crackery malts, toasty hay, straw, mild barnyard funk, green apple, light banana, with floral earthy herbal grassy pine. Tastes like tart citrus, sour berry, some barnyard funk, toasty hay, straw, oak barrel, grainy rye spice, bready crackery malts, subtle vanilla, green apple, mild banana, with floral earthy herbal grassy pine. Feels medium bodied, creamy smooth with moderate carbonation. Overall a real nice oak aged wild saison with rye.

Shared with rudzud

Light fizzy head fades very quickly, fair lacing, clear tan color.

Nose flemmy sour lacto funk, soured milk, little lemony acidic funk, some fruity stone fruit apricot flesh funk.

Taste brings more of the same, tart flemmy acidic little lemon, sour lactic acid and lacto funk, a sore milk or diacetyl, funky flemmy acidity and grassy, little cheesy too, again no real rye.

Mouth is thinner, decent carb at least, creamy slimy and acidic.

Overall eh, not a good beer, the lacto was done poorly or there is diacetyl.

Thanks to JLindros for sharing.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice crystal clear golden hue with a thin wispy head.

S - Aromas of honey, light apples, no real rye, light caramel, very faint funk.

T - Taste is similar to the nose, light tartness, oak, almost flashes of diacetyl. Light soured yogurt. Really unpleasant.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, a bit thin.

O - Overall this was an incredibly poor beer. Absolutely no redeeming qualities.

Bottled dated 7/16/15 but conditioned by Trillium and released about a month ago; drank in a Belgian tulip glass on 12/20/15; this should really be classified as a wild ale, not a saison on BA
