TWO ROADS ROAD JAM ALE W/ RASPBERRIES & LEMONGRASS

Quaint pinkish amber wheat ale “brewed with raspberries and lemongrass” receives subtle pale-malted wheat penetration. Tart raspberry pungency picks up wispy red grape, cranberry and gooseberry illusions while light lemongrass herbage stays far beneath the fading fruited surface. Seltzer-watered phenol hop fizz depletes spicy raspberry finish. On tap at Poor Henry’s, fluffy foamed head aerates soft lime-soured raspberry rasp and light woodruff syruping over delicate white wheat bed.

SCHLAFLY RASPBERRY HEFEWEIZEN

On tap at Poor Henry’s, tart hefeweizen seems closer to mild Belgian framboise with its dry-hopped sour raspberry pucker, parched farmhouse yeast rusticity, lightly salted acidity and faded pinkish amber hue. Sweet ‘n sour raspberry tartness leads the way, inviting tertiary red apple, red cherry, cranberry and strawberry illusions to the fruity mix.

  

EPIC BRAINLESS ON RASPBERRIES

Dense raspberry puree tartness thickens over syrupy candi-sugared Belgian yeast, sharp hop spicing and sugary soda pop fizzing (challenging less gunky Lindeman’s Framboise as perfect dessert fodder). Gooey raspberry juicing picks up maraschino cherry, black cherry, blackberry, blueberry, cranberry and caramelized apple illusions. Soured lemon-twisted citric pucker punctuates massive raspberry theme at the finish.
