Notes: A wheat ale fermented with real red and black raspberries and accented with fresh lemongrass. It has a stunning red color and mouth-watering berry aroma. Fruity and refreshingly dry.

Canned 5/7/20

Two Roads is one of those weird breweries that I’m usually not drawn to unless I’m in a certain mood, but this one caught my eye

Pours a beautiful opaque ruby with 2 fingers of pink tinted white head that fades to a cap at a reasonable rate and leaves minimal lacing

I get tons of juicy raspberries up front in the nose, but not much else. A mild touch of wheat and spice from the lemongrass help to balance it out

The taste is pretty much the same but it goes a few different places. Starting off, the raspberry is tart, with almost a lactic lemon sour. On the finish, there’s still plenty of berry, but it turns sweeter and the wheat comes through stronger

A medium light body and prickly carbonation lead this to drink pretty damn easy. It finishes a bit too sticky but it doesn’t ruin it

A solid and refreshing beer. Not sure if I’d try it again, but there may be a time I’m in the mood for this

Pours ruby red with pink foam. You can smell the raspberries. Very fizzy. Mild raspberry flavor. Slight malt finish. Not overwhelming. Doesn't taste artificial. Overall not bad.

Just below average body and about medium carbonation
Aroma is raspberry jam, grain, citrus
Taste is similar to aroma with tart raspberry and citrus being forward.
Overall it's a decent beer

Had as a nitro draft. Not a big flavor profile, but smooth and easy to drink.

12 ounce can into pint glass, canned on 6/13/2018. Pours fairly hazy/cloudy reddish/pinkish orange color with a 1 finger dense light pink head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of juicy/tart/tangy red/black raspberries, lemongrass, fruit skin/seeds, pear, red apple, melon, red grape, mint, pepper, wheat, cracker, white bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of raspberries, lemongrass, pale/wheat malts, and fruity yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of juicy/tart/tangy red/black raspberries, lemongrass, fruit skin/seeds, pear, red apple, melon, red grape, mint, pepper, wheat, cracker, white bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal/grassy bitterness, peppery spice, and fruit tang/tartness on the finish. Lingering notes of tart/tangy red/black raspberries, lemongrass, fruit skin/seeds, pear, red apple, melon, red grape, mint, pepper, wheat, cracker, white bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity, robustness, and balance of raspberries, lemongrass, pale/wheat malts, and fruity yeast flavors; with a great malt/bitterness and fruit tang/tartness balance; with no astringent flavors after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from bitter/spiciness and tart/tangy fruit. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, bready/grainy, and fairly sticky/tangy/acidic balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5%. Overall this is a nice fruit beer. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of raspberries, lemongrass, pale/wheat malts, and fruity yeast flavors; very smooth, crisp, and refreshing to drink with the mellowly bitter/tart/tangy/drying finish. Very flavorful and not watery for the ABV. Certainly not as jammy as I expected, but this was tasty. Very well balanced between authentic raspberries, lemongrass, pale/wheat malts, and fruity American wheat yeast. Not overwhelming on any aspect. A nicely enjoyable offering, and well made style example.

Normally I am generous with my reviews of fruit beers but this one deserves complete honesty. It looks great, pours great, color is a reddish hue which makes you excited to taste it. That's about it for the positive stuff though. Smells like soap, tastes even more like soap. Don't buy it especially since its like 12-14 bucks for a six pack.

Pours a cloudy raspberry red with a white head. This is a slightly tart wheat beer with nice raspberry flavor and not sweet or artificial-tasting at all. It is not at all complex but succeeds at what it sets out to do.

Rose-colored. Tiny, quickly disappearing, white head.
Sweet fruit aroma, faint. A hint of citrus.
Raspberry taste, still on the subtle side. A little lemon.
Crisp.
Just not that good a beer.

On tap at Hinesburg public house. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a dark pink close to red color with no head nor lacing. The smell started off with a sharp raspberry and gets slightly tart as it warms up. The taste was moderately sweet carrying a light tanginess to carry into the aftertaste. There’s no finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation felt right as a raspberry ale allowing some sweet fruit to roll slightly dry over my tongue. Overall, I say this was a decent fruit beer or APWA, whatever it's supposed to be. Raspberry is there and seems authentic.

This has a red color with a quickly dissipating pink head. Maybe this shouldn't be classified as a pale wheat ale.... This has a sweet fruit scent mixed with some wheat beer aroma. Ok, very inoffensive flavor where you get the berry but it's just slightly sweet, at least at first with some slight tartness also. This has a very light taste with a medium/thin mouthfeel. It's a fruit beer.
