Two Roads Brewing Company Worker’s Comp

What the brewers say

“A traditional farmhouse ale made with an expressive yeast strain that contributes lots of tropical fruit (passion fruit, pineapple, mango, lychee), spice flavors (clove, white pepper), and aromatics. Brewed with a variety of harvest grains including barley, wheat, oats and rye.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Moderate lemon notes up front with a touch of spicy hops note and big fruity esters.”

Flavor: “Moderate spicy notes up front with a forward lime note. Very light body (maybe a touch too light) with high carbonation. Moderate spiciness up front with a black pepper–like note that slightly overpowers the esters. Wonderful malt sweetness is appropriate and balances well with the hops flavor. Very well-balanced, but hops shine through with some slight yeast characteristics. Overall clean finish with some spice.”

Overall: “Very refreshing with high carbonation and moderate fruity notes up front. Good spiciness that extends into the aftertaste with a mild bitter note. Perhaps a bit too thin—would prefer a bit more body to balance out the carbonation and spiciness, but a very well-balanced saison.”
