Brewer Description: (from website) 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.

Intro: A 330ml bottle, bottled on 13th April 2018. Poured into a Holy Mountain tulip glass.
Appearance: A hazy straw yellow colour with a two finger white head that had decent retention but settled to a thin cap, while leaving some lacing.
Aroma: Tart, funky, oak, vanilla, apricot, and light citrus rind notes.
Taste: Lightly tart and tangy, citrusy, grapefruit, lemon, funky, oak, with notes of yellow stone fruit and wheat.
Mouthfeel: Medium to light bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Easy drinking, not exactly Saison like, but it has nice aroma and flavours.
