Our series of New-England saisons continues with Lineage Rye, a wild ale featuring Valley Malt Danko Rye. This Polish origin, locally grown and malted rye provides a subtle and balancing malt backbone to compliment the complex characteristics derived from aging in oak barrels, fermentation with our native New England mixed culture and well-aged hops.
Lineage Rye is medium in body and pours a deep, yellow-golden hue with engaging aromatics of wet hay and mild earth, spice, tart lemon peel and white wine. Following the nose, flavors of tart pink grapefruit flesh, white table grapes, funky must from the aged hops take the lead. Following mid palate with soft oaky vanilla intertwine with a supplementing bready, rye depth. Satisfying, structured oak barrel finish with lively carbonation. Lineage Rye will continue to age nicely in the bottle with its nuanced flavors continually evolving over time.
