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.
