On tap at Stone & Rail, thin opaque aluminum-hued hefeweizen places tart lemon-candied spritz and delicate coriander spicing above stylish banana-clove sweetness. Too light and unassuming.
On tap at Poor Henry’s, rustic grisette-styled saison brings wheat-malted oats and spelt barnyard acridity to lightly dry-hopped citric subtleties and floral-spiced lemongrass herbage, leaving a trace of grass along the way.
On tap at Abominable Snowfest, easygoing IPA finds middle ground with its gentle tropical fruiting, lemony herbal respite and grassy hop astringency. While not as ‘radical’ as its moniker suggests, the sunny grapefruit blitz and subtle mango-pineapple conflux remain smooth and never too bitter, inviting lighter pale ale thirsts.
