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.

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

Fritz123 (1535) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Bottle from Total Wine in Boca Raton, FL. Pours a golden yellow with a foamy white head in my snifter at home. Aroma is fruity, Belgian yeasts, bread dough, sweet nectars, and spices. The taste was mote muted than the aroma but basically the same. A little bit of a farty finish with bread, spices and yeasts. Carbonated, medium light body. Overall not bad.

Caytinator (1005) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAY 4, 2014
12oz bottle, aged for approx 1.5 years (2012 release). So they were right, it aged pretty well! It pours a golden hazy yellow with great lacing and a soapy white head. My sniffer’s pretty shot due to allergies, but it’s quite stinky, and it smells pretty good - definitely some spicy notes that have been bottled up for a while! The taste is very good, and the palate is very smooth, pretty much what I expect from belgian-style tripels. It can hold its own with the big dogs.

obabu (4) - porto alegre, BRAZIL - MAR 21, 2014 does not count
Garrafa. Aroma incrível de lúpulos cítricos, ótimo! Sabor não traz todo o amargor que o aroma promete, mas é extremante equilibrado com o dulçor. Residual muito equilibrado e sem calor alcoólico. Baita ceva!

Bottle. Hazy light gold with a quickly dissipating 1 finger white head. Aroma is wheat, orange, clove and Belgian yeast. Taste is tangerine, alcohol and sweet malt. Rich thick palate with medium carbonation. Big and tasty.

keanex (1790) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - FEB 22, 2014
On tap at Joe Canals West Deptford.
Appearance: Beautifully clear golden-orange body with a dense light tan head on top. Very clean and flat head with good retention.
Aroma: The aroma is light with floral notes, hints of sweet orange, orange rind, hints of lemon and a touch of red apples.
Taste: This is a nicely balanced beer with sweet citrus, yeast, a touch of bubblegum, and a hint of vanilla on the finish. Clove is very subdued and the finish is slightly sweet with a hint of apples, sort of a semi-sweet cider finish. This drinks nicely.
Palate: Full-bodied, light to moderate carbonation.
Overall: This is less hoppy than I remember and also sweeter than I remember. It’s not my favorite tripel, even with it being designated as an American Tripel. I do think that it’s a good value though for those looking for a unique take on the style.

ibrubeer (306) - Omaha, USA - FEB 3, 2014
Bottle. Pretty clear, slightly cloudy. Nice Belgian aroma. Subtle flavor notes of banana and clove, but not to the extent of a hefe. Doesn’t taste as strong as it is!

From ed5388 in local swap 5.2. Meh. Different than most triples I have tried. A little grainy carbonated. Not bad but no real positives for me

Finhead (1632) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - JAN 1, 2014
The golden pour is almost clear with a white head. The aroma has banana and herbs. It has a full body with thick, slick texture and average carbonation. The taste is sweet with some alcohol warmth.

This one poured a hazy yellow color with a white head. Aroma was of belgian sugar and spices, and fresh fruity and piney hops. Falvor was similar, very bright and fresh flavors, definitely one of the best tripels ive had in a long while.
