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.

This is a great beer. Just going by the taste without to much concern about what the beer has. Its really nice. Not sure why beer drinkers are so anal about beers does it taste great or does it not. It taste great! Bottom line. Thanks

What a great beer. Holy cow some pretentious beer shmucks here. i can throw out superfluous terms too. this is a damn good beer. if you like lagers, a good intro into ale styles. Seems like FF used a good deal of Amarillo hops with a kick of citrus, ample seafoam head, big citrus fruits/cardamom on the nose...aint i cool. Hell of a beer. Great offering of an American style tripel- it’s not a traditional Belgian tripel, just an endeavour. That said, this is a truly great American beer, that as a tripel, can most certainly knockout Chouffe’s popular one. I would even take this over a St. Bernardus and other Belgians. To rate this lower than Golden Monkey or Unibroue seems like an awful lot of snobbery. Serious 5’s to Flying Fish for taking a chance and kicking ass- just try this beer and forget the ratings. -a NJ native

Really great beer. Perfect for a sipper after a long day. Will certainly try the others in the flying fish lineup.

Pours with less head than expected. Some black flakes. Nice bready aroma mixed with a pleasant american hop aroma. Taste is fairly mild, juicy, sweet, slightly bready. Easy drinking Sunday beer. The high abv wasn’t really expected or necessary. Enjoyability 4.5/5

This tripel pours a cloudy, dark gold color with a soft, cascading head. The nose is balanced with a creamy note, malt and light hops. The flavors are extremely delicious and well balanced. At first, I taste the malt, then the hops take over. But then I get more malt in the finish. The body is crisp, smooth and drinkable. The alcohol content is very well hidden. I also got a bit of fruit toward the finish. This is definitely one of the best tripels I have tasted so far!

From the bottle. Pours lighter then expected, but looks are deceiving. Hints of banana and citrus, hoppy. Very good. Makes me proud of my Jersey upbringing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy gold with thigh foamy white head; aroma is hops with hints of sour and sweet yeastiness; Flava Is rich sweet hints of raisin and honeydew with notes of hops and subtle hint of pepper; feels medium and foamy; finishes dryishly sweet with subtle hop bitterness and slight alcohol

Very good beer with a fair amount of citrus. There is no alcohol flavor at all. I had this out of the bottle from a six pack.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. Aroma of fruit and malt. Taste is sweet but moderately hoppy with a good balance. Very drinkable and a good beer. Definitely like this one.

Bottle shared at Capones. Pours a hazy golden orange with a medium creamy and bubbly white head that laced. Aroma of floral and citrus hops, candy sugar, bready malt, some Belgian yeast esters and fruity notes. Flavor of bready and very lightly toasted malt, candy sugar, a nice mix of citrus and floral American hops, nice and dry. Love the hoppy Trippels!
