Anyone who pays even the slightest attention to my beer drinking activities knows that, in the summertime, my go to brew is Road Jam. Two Roads brewery is practically stumbling distance from my house and I love relaxing in the beer garden with an nice cold brew and good friends.

Earlier this week Two Roads announced the latest release in their Road Less Traveled series - Bergamonster.

Of course, I popped in and tried as soon as I could. Then I had a Road Jam. :)

My understanding is that this monster of a beer is loosely based on Pilot Batch #3 that was released a few months back.

I can certainly taste the similarities, but this is very much it's own beer; kind of a distant cousin to #3.

Bergamonster is a American Pale Wheat Ale that weighs in at a heft 8.2% ABV.  It lives up to it;s name. It is bold but fairly drinkable.

You can really taste the mildly bitter orange peel and lots of spices. You can also feel the alcohol.

It's delicious but not a slam-down summer beer.

Get it while you can. It's not going to be around for long.
