Notes / Commercial Description:
The first edition in our Lineage series of farmhouse ales features local wheat from Valley Malt in Hadley, Massachusetts. Bright, clear, and straw-yellow in appearance, Lineage Wheat invites with a complex nose of grassy funk, crisp citrus rind, pepper, and floral white wine. Starting mildy tart, yet not sour, this approachable saison follows through with flavors of earth, musky funk, woody-oak, light wheat, and some balancing, tangy, citrus character. Lineage Wheat is beautifully light in body and dry on the palate.

MALT: Pilsner, Valley Wheat, Flaked Wheat

HOPS: US Goldings

Sort of a round buttery brett presence to this one. Begging for a bit more acidity and dryness from the wheat. Bit of a mess but Trillium's amazing work w hops may have led me to too high of an expectation here.

This beer is not officially "retired" as I tried a sample at the Canton brewery taproom today; lacks depth and a pronounced smell/taste
