COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
You are holding the inaugural release in a multi-year brewing experiment-to brew a series of beers as diverse as the great state of New Jersey. Our theme is the state-long artery that connects us. Each beer will focus on the unique aspect of an individual exit, whether an ingredient or event. The journey begins at Exit 4- right up the street from the Flying Fish brewery. As one of the first craft brewers to embrace Belgian-style beers, we’ve chosen to start with a Belgian trippel, finished with plenty of American hops. Note the hazy golden hue and the aroma of citrus with hints of banana and clove. Then taste the Belgian malt flavors and a subdued bitterness in the finish. Bottle conditioned, this beer will develop as it ages. Enjoy.

Lots of spice with first sip. Banana. Gets better as you drink and flavors mellow. Spice lays down and fruit comes out. Very tasty.

Poured from a 750. Murky and dark yellow, nose of gum cloves and bananas. Damn sweet and not very good. Citrus almost saves it, but not quite. Not a fan.

Poured a cloudy blonde color with a big creamy head. Aromas of pepper and citrus, with some banana as it warms. Palate is somewhat fizzy, yet a touch thick at the same time. Tastes of banana and caramel with a little hop note underneath. Banana becomes more apparant as it warms.

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2011 From a 750ml into a flying fish snifter. Pours a reddish copper color with a finger or two of head and little to no lacing. Aroma is really, really nice; bubblegum with yeast and alcohol. Mouthfeel is also very good; medium bodied with just the right amount of carbonation. Taste is of banana, clove, alcohol, yeast and above all, hops. Unfortunately, the hops are bitter instead of flavorful. There really isn’t any pine, citrus or floral taste to the hops... just a biting bitterness. That’s the only negative about this beer. If FF could fix this and turn the hops into floral hops, we’d have an amazing beer. Still worth a sip if you can find it. Update 3-27-11: Got a 12oz bottle of this at Dallesandros steaks. The hop problem I mentioned above was fixed. Nice floral hops with some grapefruit. Overall a good solid beer although it’s more like a Belgian IPA with all those hops!
