Brewer Description: (from website) The latest edition of our New England Wild Saison series is aged on raspberries and features a generous amount of local wheat from Valley Malt in Hadley, Massachusetts. Pouring a slightly hazy pinkish hue, Raspberry Lineage Wheat presents bright aromas of fresh, sweetened raspberry jam with an underpinning of rich, woody-oak and a touch of funk from our Native New England mixed culture. On the palate, tart raspberry, ripe blackberry and muddled cranberry are delicately balanced by subtle, tangy lemon peel and a slight floral accent. A light, drinkable body and dry finish give Raspberry Lineage Wheat added nuance and approachability.
