COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Two Roads Brewmaster Phil Markowski has taken a road less traveled with this rye-based version of a classic Belgian Tripel. There are unique twists and turns at every corner that give our spring seasonal its unique, fruity complexity. The beer is characteristically spicy with a dry flavor and aroma thanks to the rye. The addition of American-grown Mosaic and Amarillo hops add notes of white wine, blueberries and fruit punch. We also used a noticeably fruity/spicy yeast strain that adds characteristics of pear and clove. So take the next exit for a fruity, spicy flavor and intense hop character.

Six pack from some place in Milford, CT. Pours out a cloudy medium honey yellow color. Thin white head. Classic Belgian yeast aromas and flavors. Little bit of peppery spice. Decent and drinkable, albeit somewhat unrefined.

Not one of my favorite styles. Itís a little sweet, but quite appropriate for the style.

12oz goblet at Nags Head in Huntington. Pours a lightly murky, deep orange with some creamy, white head. Nose is all tripel, yeast, spice, booze, some mild grain, heavy honey. Flavor follows, lots of booze and sugar, some green bell pepper, tons of fruit punch and bubblegum. Whereís the rye? This was harsh to drink too. Probably bad from the concept stage.

Iím just going to come out and say this, no pussy-footing around: smells like sex. Not in a good way, not in a bad way, just in kind of a dank sweaty way. Thatís all I have to say.

I appreciated the aroma. A nice blend of light, bready malt and various indistinct fruits.. cloves or banana or whatever a lot of those Belgian style beers have. The taste was okay.. a little underwhelming. It was mostly sweet bread and fruity.

Delicate bread and yeast. Clear golden body with a modest half inch head that slims gradually. Rich bread taste. Mild smoothness like a wine. Delivers a welcoming warmth to the palate. Strong feeling but delivered in a smooth way. Well done.

BrewBoxer (2365) - New York, New York, USA - APR 3, 2015
Draft at the rye house NYC. Pours a tan light color. No head. Has a boozy Carmel light flavor. Sweetish with a candy flavor

Jow (2494) - New York, USA - APR 1, 2015
Tap at Stags Head. Pours golden orange frothy head. Nose is fruity and buttery. Tastes of butterscotch, bubblegum, banana, cereal, and residual wine sugar. Sweet finish and boozing warmness. But of an odd duck

MartinT (8351) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 29, 2015
My Bottom Line:
Honeyed cereals envelop this Tripelís floral hops, leading to plenty of bubblegum esters and polite alcohol warmth.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the clear golden shine.
-Herbal hop bitterness nearly achieves balance. Those honeyed sugars, though slick, are quite prominent...
-The rendering is super clean, as seems to be the norm for Two Roads brews.
-Carbonation is prickly yet soft. Could be more expansive, for my tastes in the style anyway.

On tap at the brewery taproom.

MrMeadMan (42) - Amesbury, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 23, 2015
Pours a golden yellow with a thick white and persistent head. Fairly sweet, rye flavor is not strong. Decent and tasty brew yet some how missing something that I canít quite out my finger on.

Darwenus (603) - Virginia, USA - DEC 3, 2014
I like experimental beers, and this one really qualifies. It pours a really hazy dark orange with a brief head that fades quickly. There are a lot of different notes in the aroma, including grapefruit, bananas, butterscotch, grass and straw. The flavor is mild up front and then very bitter, strong, and astringent. Lots of vapor and rye in the whiskey-like aftertaste. The 9.5% ABV is a huge presence.
