COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Two Roads interpretation of this emerging beer style naturally takes a road less traveled. Unlike other versions, ours employs an American ale yeast and no spices. The result is a soft wheat backdrop that accentuates the Pacific Northwest hop character.

jgb9348 (4843) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 16, 2014
Slightly hazy golden coloured body with a super pale, almost white tint and a nice, two centimetre tall pure white head. Aroma of alcohol, lemons, yeast, wheat, coriander seed, corn and way more wheat - very nice. Medium-bodied; Assertive hops up front of a herbal and grassy variety with a bit of coriander seed, some curacao, a hint of light spices and a defined and predominant wheat flavour that shows well. Aftertaste shows a nice blend of wheat, yeast and curacao, all with a very light spice touch, showing that hint of bitterness from the hops, but not overwhelming at all. Overall, a nice beer for the style with a little bitterness showing through at the end, but exactly the way it should show through, given the style. I sampled this stubby twelve ounce bottle purchased from New Beer Distributors in New York, New York on 08-November-2014 for US$2,25 sampled at home in Washington on 16-December-2014.

Alengrin (2425) - BELGIUM - DEC 5, 2014
Hybrid between Hefeweizen and IPA, named after the road exit one has to take to get to this brewery in Connecticut. Yellow golden blonde colour, slightly misty with pale yeast particles floating around everywhere; the bottom of the bottle holds a thick deposit of this, probably because it has passed its best before date by two months. Naturally the beer becomes completely cloudy after adding this deposit - and then it effectively looks like a Belgian witbier. Medium thick, creamy, snow white head breaking open after a while and not leaving a lot of lacing. Aroma dominated by citrus: strong lemon zest, grapefruit flesh, lime juice; baked banana, freshly cut red apple, kiwi, freshly grated ginger, dry white wine, soap, juniper berries, wheaty sourishness, sour yoghurt. Taste begins with a soft sweet and sourish fruitiness, apple, pineapple and kiwi, crisp, smooth mouthfeel, soft wheat sourishness as in a German Hefeweizen, mineral accents, bit oily mouthfeel, spiciness coming up from the middle onwards and increasing in the finish with a long, dry, bitter hoppiness of dried grapefruit peel, tonic water and wormwood; alcohol remains well hidden. My first ever beer from the state of Connecticut so interesting to me personally as a tick for another state, but in itself an enjoyable beer, though I do prefer the ’normal’ or double IPAs in the classic sense of the word - the subtle and gentle wheat sourishness in this ’wheat IPA’ is somehow violated by the strong hop bitterness. Or maybe it’s just me being European and being used to wheat beers not showing much hop bitterness at all - and I have to admit there is some connection, seeing the fact that Belgian witbiers are usually spiced with dried citrus peel, an effect cleverly achieved here by the citrussy American hops.

Bottle, Beer Moth, Manchester. Pallid yellow pour with a small white head. Nose had notes of biscuity malts, grassy hops, veg and citrus. Flavour was similar with some wheat and coriander. Dry bitter finish. Interesting yet unspectacular.
