Allagash – Two Lights

  • Style: Beer brewed with Sauvignon Blanc Must and fermented with lager and champagne yeast
  • ABV: 6.7%

Two Lights is an ode to two of the more refreshing drinks of summer: cold beer and sparkling wine. Sauvignon blanc must—the freshly pressed juice of the grapes, along with stems, seeds, and skins – are added during the brewing of this beer. Then fermented with both lager and champagne yeast.

After cracking this can open I could immediately smell lemon notes. After pouring its yellow hazy liquid into the glass, I noticed bit of white pepper, floral, and fresh wheat. The head on this was big, but dissipated rather quickly. The flavor was filled with clean notes of lemon, and minerality, along with pepper, floral, raw wheat, and a subtle hint of grape sweetness on the back end. It finished snappy, and dry with a Belgian yeasty spice to it.

Overall I thought this beer was fantastic, and I really wish I had a few cans with me last weekend when I was in Michigan boating on a lake. You truly can’t go wrong with any Allagash beers. I’ll admit they are definitely one of my favorite breweries. They stick true to styles, and everything they make may not be mind-blowing, but they are all certainly tasty, and very well made!

Bottoms up!
