This beer was released in June of 2018 and I didn’t get to try it over the Summer. I saw it in the mix a six section of the beer store and picked up one to try.
Style: American Wild Ale
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Two Lights is an ode to two of the more refreshing drinks of summer: cold beer and sparkling wine. While brewing this beer, we add sauvignon blanc must—the freshly pressed juice of the grapes. Then we ferment it with both lager and champagne yeast to create a tart, crisp, and dry profile. The finished beer’s aromas of pear, grape, and light hops pair with a flavor profile that’s a mix of tropical fruit and the snappy spritz of a freshly picked grape. We suggest sipping Two Lights by a water source too large to see across.”
Random: Allagash has a really good brewery tour.
The beer poured with a three finger, white head. It dissipated quickly and left very little lacing on the glass. The body was a clear, straw-yellow color with lots of visible carbonation. The nose started with some yeast and then quickly transitioned into white grapes. It also had a green apple note as well. The taste was sweet at first with some malt and then the yeast came through next. Cantaloupe and white grapes came through next. It had a slight, grassy bitterness at the end of the sip. The body was on the lighter side with a lot of carbonation. The finish was quick with white grapes. A bottle of this was $3.25, which came to $.27 per ounce. I enjoyed this beer and I think it would pair well with a white, flaky fish.
