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.

Bottle at home. Hazy golden with a tight creamy head. Aroma is warm bread, Belgian yeast, berries, rye. Sweet and alcoholic up front. Tastes of cloves, white pepper, ripe berries, pineapple, and some bubble gum esters. Dry finish. Interesting.

crazyvin (1940) - New York, USA - JUL 11, 2014
A pale yellow body with a white head, some yeast sediment. Aroma was of bread and mild yeast. No rye or complex yeast notes. Some bubblegum flavors, bu t otherwise just like the aroma. Carbonation was restrained. Disappointed in this one.

A little to rough for my taste. A bit of golden sweetness followed by a rye spiciness.

BREWMUSKCLES (2234) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 19, 2014
some syrup to this Abbey brew that seems a bit chalky as well. Genuine enough flavor with perhaps a rye tang in the finish. Good kick to it. On tap yesterday at Jaspers ninth ave food fest NYC.

Travlr (11842) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 4, 2014
Draft at Doherty’s in Warwick, RI. Hazy to cloudy golden yellow color, small white head. Aroma of lightly spiced baked bread, subtle pine, caramel. Taste is sweet, lightly spiced, decent body. More interesting than your average sweet and boozy tripel.

jkwood04 (3947) - Connecticut, USA - APR 22, 2014
12oz bottle in a teku. Pours transparent amber with an off-white head. Aroma of spicy yeast, some pale and caramel malts, light floral hops, some spiciness, and light wheat-like notes. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not the best tripel, but not awful either.

OldGrowth (2663) - North Carolina, USA - APR 20, 2014
At Plan B Simsbury. Ok aroma sweet. Pear, sugar. Minor yeasty spice. Bubblegum.tad hazed brownish Orange color Good head and lace. Sweet flavor. Heavy body think creamy oily mouthfeel. Sweet dry finish. I kind of like it. I’d be happier if it wasn’t as Abbey triple rye gives it a bite you don’t associate with a tripel.

4 oz sample at the brewery. A yellow color with a standard white head. Aroma is spicy with pepper and clove. The flavor is fruity, sweet, kind of candy, the rye was there almost lost for me, its a unique flavor. I would like to try a larger sample before really bashing it.
