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.

KajII (770) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - MAR 7, 2011
Bottle. Poured a medium hazy amber/orange with a small white frothy head that was mostly diminishing and had fair lacing. The aroma was moderately heavy of resin hops, a mild straw malts and a doughy yeast with a hint of citrus and alcohol. It tasted mildly sweet and slightly malty at first and then became slightly bitter-sweet with a hint of yeast and alcohol at the finish. Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and dry in texture with a very soft carbonation. Overall a nice tasty tripel with a complexity of flavor.

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 (1289) - 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 (36) - Omaha, Nebraska, 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 (1112) - 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.

Beerman6686 (3870) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 30, 2013
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.

On tap at HOTB. Awesomely surprising tripple. Pours a clear golden color with a slight white head. Aroma of slight citrus mixes with the caramel notes from the tripple. I am loving this hopped up version of a tripple. Medium thick body and medium carbonation.

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2014 Sampled on draft at the House of 1000 Beers this beer poured a dark golden-amber color with a small foamy white head that faded quickly but left good lacing. The aroma was sweet and tangy table sugar, apricot and pear. The flavor was sweet and tangy table sugar, apricot, pear, bread, yeast and had a pleasant boozy presence that really worked well. Long tangy finish of golden fruits, table sugar, yeast and booze. Full bodied. Very respectable.
