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, weíve 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.

Malts: Malto Franco-Belge Pils Malt, Weyerman Acidulated, White Wheat, Demerara Sugar
Hops: Simcoe, Columbus, Palisades, Amarillo
Yeast: Belgian Abbey
Original Gravity: 21.5 Plato

TheHopster (1057) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - MAY 15, 2010
(Bottle) An authentic Belgian Trippel from the Garden State. Subtle aroma of yeast and citrus with quickly dissipating white head. Predominant malt taste with hoppy finish. Well done by Flying Fish.

lamas (1573) - Washington DC, USA - APR 28, 2010
Bottle. Pours a hazy dirty gold color with a smallish light-tan head. Plenty of bananas in the aroma along with some lemons, cloves, allspice, oranges and rinds, grapefruits, caramel, and vanilla. Goes down medium to full-bodied and a tad sticky/syrupy. Very sweet candied sugar, caramel, and some bananas upfront taste-wise. Some mild and smoothing vanilla follows. Slightly bitter and drying at the end with some grapefruitiness. Warming alcohol is present throughout, though nowhere near the amount expected from a 9.5% ABV. Very enjoyable.

radagast83 (7392) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - APR 11, 2010
12oz bottle. Poured a clear amber color, with a fluffy white head. Aroma was pretty strong on the citrus hops, pretty clean, floral. Flavor was very hoppy for a tripel, quite a nice beer!

(Bottle from brewery into tulip) I was really looking forward to this one, since I often take the namesake exit to work with 295 N is clogged! Pours a dark amber with a very light head that didnít last too long. Nose is very heavy on the hoppy florals as well as the hints of cirtus, cloves, and sweetness one would expect from a tripel. Nice mouthfeel with a lively carbonation that brings the flavors together well. Starts off with a blast of sweetness, but has a nice sharp bitter finish with the hops that is a bit of a surprise. took me a while to get used to that, but found that the hops at the end do provide an interesting twist on the style which is not entirely bad. I have several bottles and am making sure to but one aside to age for a long while to see how well the flavors develop.

Pwn3d (1962) - Manhattan, New York, USA - APR 3, 2010
Bottle from canals on route 73, the same exit as its namesake, shared with my dad. Pour is golden hay with creamy white head. Clove, Belgian spice, soft yeast finish. Tons if florals in the nose.

argo0 (13318) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 26, 2010
12oz bottle. Small off-white head atop lightly hazed light amber body. Aroma is moderately sweet, orange/grapefruit, some clove, straw, strawberry, light cotton candy. Taste is moderately sweet, grapefruit, some pineapple, orange, alcohol/warming, straw, light peach. Medium-full body, some stickiness, light acidity. This has to be the hoppiest "Tripel" Iíve ever tried. Decent, but itís a bit boozy, and tastewise, Iíd sooner call this an ASA than a Tripel.

Pours a deep hazy copper color with thin head. Floral aroma. Tastes hoppy and sweet with a slightly bitter aftertaste with a creamy mouthfeel. Aftertaste a liitle bit of alcohol. PACKS A PUNCH! Very nice!
