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.

Sweet moderate yeast aroma. Hazy golden color with a large white head. Lightly sweet in the beginning quickly getting bitter and gets very strong in the finish.

Can pour into nonic pint glass from Cigarette City. Aroma is lots of spicy rye over Belgian yeast, fruity esters, bubblegum, hard candy. Appearance is cloudy yellow with mild sparkle at edges of the glass, finger-width fizzy white head with fair retention and minimal lacing. Taste is similar to aroma--spiciness of the rye laid over classic yeast/ester/bubblegum tripel flavors. Am getting a little of the white wine and pear flavors referenced. A little corn chip aftertaste. Palate is light bodied with thin texture and soft to average carbonation with dry, crisp finish. Overall, you need to take your time to appreciate some of the subtleties here.

Pours a two-finger off-white head that fades slowly leaving some lace. Hazy pale amber color. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Tart fruity nose but flavor is sweeter, spicy rye and clove. Nice triple. $2.85 for a 12oz bottle from Bert’s Better Beers Hooksett, NH.

Bulk_Carrier (3470) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - APR 3, 2016
This was poured into a chalice. The appearance was a bronzed light copper color with a thin white cap of a head. Messy lacing. The smell takes the rye in a nice spicy sort of way. Bubblegum, light citrus, light breadiness, some blueberries (but that comes across super light). The taste follows the aroma more combined between the spiciness and the sweet. Dry spicy rye to bubblegum aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body. Carbonation felt good. Semi-dry spice hits in the harshness. Overall, I’d say it was pretty good as a tripel. I could see myself coming back to it.

slightly cloudy, gold color; fruity, spicy, funky Belgian yeast aroma; lots of spice notes in the flavor ; notes of cloves and pepper provided by the Belgian yeast, along with tropical fruit notes, hoppy bitterness, and dry, rye malt; there’s a lot going on here - at first I though maybe too much - the flavors were a bit muddled and confusing but a ways into the beer it all started to come together; all in all an interesting and enjoyable beer
