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.

Bottle Pours a hazy golden with a big white head. The head is frothy and last well. The lacing is lacking for such a nice head. Has a nice sweet aroma of citrus, coriander and fruits. Has a decent carbonation. The flavor is on the lighter side but good. Good blending. Decent spicies and a good sweetness. Has a light to medium body. The texture is good and not to dry. A solid finish with a good aftertaste.

Snojerk321 (2975) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 13, 2009
750ml bottle. This brew poured a hazy pale peach color with a 2 finger thick off white head leaving some spotty lacing. Lots of citrus, banana, coriander, peaches and other flash fruits on the nose. Some white pepper, citrus and an underlying funk on the palate, pretty tasty Tripel.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 5, 2009
750ml from Capone’s, Norristown, PA. Big pour, somewhat cloudy amber with bright carbonation and a medium head. Notes of apple cider and crisp citrus in the nose. The mouthfeel is medium, with the fizz dying down a bit too quickly. Light malt and bready character in the flavors, providing a bit of balance. But what starts out like an intriguingly fruity variation on an American tripel devolves a bit too quickly to linger in the memory.

Bottle at BCTC. Pours a hazy gold with a thin white head. Light hoppy citrusnotes. Thin to medium body and light malt. Finishes with a light dry bitterness. Not bad, but not memorable in the least.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - AUG 3, 2009
Bottle at BCTC 2009: Hazy golden with a white film of head. Hoppy nose- bright zesty with a biscuit background and a light peppery grassy noble hop presence. Light body with a very grassy flavor. Some pale malt background and an astringency of vegetal pine character. Not really Belgian feeling. Eh.

MullMan (1099) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 1, 2009
Mostly clear bright golden body, medium tall sudsy creamy white head. aroma is fresh grapefruit rind, hoppy for a tripel. also a lkittle sweaty/pissy/yeasty. maybe a little dried tropical fruit in the aroma too. flavor starts caramel malty sweet, a little spicy like white pepper, dried pineapple chunks and grapefruit sections with rind. some earthy yeast and then very dry/astringent hop bitterness. a little boozy/herbal/ginny in the aftertaste.
