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.

GABF 2009. Very nice beer, not unlike their Exit 11. Cloudy golden color with a medium-sized, frothy white head and good lacing. Aroma is sweet malt, light fruits (especially banana), spices, and citrusy hops. Flavor is sweet pale malt and maybe a little wheat, yeast, banana, orange, caramel, spices, honey, and citrusy hops. Body is medium and carbonation is high, giving a lively mouthfeel. Very nice overall. Oh yeah, and about the controversy surrounding this beer’s name, let me just say that MADD can shove it.

750ml bottle from hopdog, thanks Steve, this was another big hit at my tasting. Rating #53. Orangish pour, kind of glowed, with a pretty good white head to it. Had that distinct belgian yeast aroma to it. Kind of hoppy, and very spicy with a little heat in the end, Jersey Joe sure loved it and so did I. ꀡ)

UPDATED: NOV 14, 2010 Orange citrus nose with a stong American hop presence. Pours hazy golden orange hue with light white head...nice lacing. Light orange taste blending to an orange peel hop bite with a hoppy balance and slight belgian yeast finish. Very refreshing.

Suttree (5289) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 6, 2009
As soon as I saw this, I had an urge to do some drunk driving, so, y’know, MADD was sure right about this one...Orange, thin ring of foam. Nice spicy aroma. Flavor has touches of melon. Nice beer, but lacks a real "wow’ factor. Sampled at lithy’s Septemberfest.

Butters (3869) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 5, 2009
Sampled at Lithy’s Septemberfest Tasting. Clear golden pour with quick fading near white head. Nose is slightly funky, like a sweaty tshirt, and candi sugar. Flavor is also funky, and sweet but with a bitter wheaty quality. Obvious yeasty finish. Don’t really care for this at all.
