It’s Friday, so let’s get wild with a wild farmhouse ale on the Windowsill!

The Lineage Wheat was the original release from Trillium Brewing Company’s Lineage series of wild saisons. I typically would name them all, but there have been so many, that I’ll be here all weekend. Back in September, I was lucky enough to pick up a few bottles of the Raspberry Lineage Wheat, though. That one was delicious. So how was the O.G. Lineage Wheat?

Well, Trillium made it. So you know the answer to that. It was awesome! Three types of malt combine with US Goldings hops to make a tart—not sour—saison that really refreshes the palate. It was super crisp and bright, a little bit white wine-ish, with a solid funky taste and a nice, dry finish. Good character added by the oak aging, too!

So far, this series is two-for-two for me. Have you had any of them? Let me know in the comments below!
