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.

Bouteille bue en avril 2014. Goût de bananes, clou girofle, zeste orange et épices. L’alcool réchauffe la gorge. Une tripel qui manque de peaufinage mais pas mauvaise.

12 oz. bottle purchased at Julio’s Liquors. Bottle date of 02/ 24/2015. Crsytsal clear gold with slow carbonation level. Aroma has a decent amount of rye, Belgian yeast, residual sugar.

Flavor has a bit too much sweetness but other than that the flavors are correct. The rye tries to cut the sweetness but doesn’t get the job done. Booze is only slightly noticeable. Honestly if this brewer could cut back on the sugar they really would have a nice tripel. After about half the glass this got cloying. Finishing the last half of the bottle wasn’t easy.

Pours an orange gold with a white head that leaves a minimal lacing and a thick white ring. Nose is spice. Taste is sweet with rye spice up front. Slight hops bitterness at he end. Why is 9.5% called a "spring seasonal"? Winter comes to mind. 12 oz can in a variety pack

mansquito (4649) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAY 22, 2015
The Sampler, Brooklyn bottle: pours deep golden with a white head. Aroma is fruits and honey. Taste is really sweet. Alcohol is well covered. Too sweet for my tastes. Too thick. Meh.

Unique and beautiful blend of the two styles. I really wish that I was able to get my hands on another bottle or two of this beer!

12 ounce bottle. Deep orange pour. Buggle gum. Banana and a lot of sweetness. Bit too much.

thome50 (1252) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - MAY 2, 2015
Can at #RATXV. Golden pour. Aroma is slight earth and clove. Taste is a fruit forward bubble gum with the alcohol not really coming into play. Interesting and spicy but the alcohol is over the top.

thornecb (5126) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 1, 2015
Pours gold into a tulip. White head quickly recedes to hug rim. Sourdough and peppercorn aromas. Sweet bubblegum upfront turning to mild pepper and pumpernickel before the lasting, cloying clove and yeast finish.

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