Poured yellow gold with a thin head, bigger bubbles. Comes right out with a rich, yeasty, sweet flavor. Sugar and bananas dominate. Lightly spicy clove. Slight alcohol flavor mostly hidden under the dry, sweet, lightly hoppy finish. Nice warming effect. Better than average tripel by a NJ brewery.

Thin sticky head. Reduces quickly to a thin wisp of bubbles. Sickly sweet aroma. Little bit of cheese in there along with some spices. Color is a light golden orange with low carbonation. Flavor is thin with some spices, grass, yeast and a little bit of roasted grains. Hops become more present the further into the brew you get. Nice alcohol warming and long alcoholic finish with a bit of spice. Not one of the better triples I have had.

Thanks to Zathrus13 for this one.Clear copper brew with just a ring of bubbles.Nose is a blend of exotic spices including clove and some fruit notes also.Flavor is more of the fruits then the spices but it is still not a bad brew.

In the bottle at the Brickskeller. I was skeptical that this would be a pretty lame tripel since it cost only $3.30 at the Brick. However, I really liked this New Jersey Belgian. Rich gold color with a big white head. Has a slight flowery aroma, but not much of that. Taste is a strong sweetness of honey and cane sugar. Pronounced 6-member ring structure compounds on the tongue. Nice mid-range hop flavor. Leaves absolutely beautiful concentric rings of lacing in the glass.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours gold, with a small, white head.
Aromas of yeast, spice, pepper, and fruit. Body is fairly light, with spice and fruit. Whereís the alcohol...??? Itís very well hidden. The too light body and the fact that the flavors are a little too subtle stop this from being really really good.

Golden color with an off-white head. Strong presence of lemon and nutmeg in the aroma. Taste is light and crisp with even more of a citrus and spice feel. Quickly rising as a new favorite with River Horse.
