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.

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 (3344) - 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

trapped (1951) - New York, TURKEY - MAR 18, 2016
Draught @ Milk and Hops. Clear rich yellow with small foamy white head, sweet vanilla aroma, medium carbonation, typical Belgian yeast flavor with cloves, and sweetish taste, somewhat thick body, long sticky sweet finish. Very smooth and fulfilling.

spokeydonkey (75) - Albany, New York, USA - MAR 15, 2016
Pours pale and hazy with a thin white head leaving lacing down the glass. Has the aroma of a belgian ale: pear and apple notes. Not much hop in the aroma. Complex taste: thick and sweet with spicyness from both the yeast (belgian pepperiness) and hops. Some white wine notes in the background, particularly an astrinent note in the finish. Throughout a subtle belgian pear/banana flavor. A bit muddled with all these different flavors coming in. Full bodied and hides the 9.5% ABV quite well. Quite easy to drink for the ABV. Overall, this is a solid beer, but comes off a bit muddled.

12 oz can. Pours deep golden with tall, long-lasting, foamy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is citrusy hops, funky yeast, pale malt, spices and ripe fruit. Body is full and slightly crisp. Citrusy hops, spicy yeast, candy sugar, bready malt and ripe fruit fill the mouth. Finish is long, dry and spicy. Overall it’s solid brew.

EithCubes (5426) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 6, 2016
Seems to be my 5400th rating here. Bottle. Nose sweet lemon, whiff of tartness reminds of a Gose or mild Berliner (perhaps even a very strong Saison), medium spice and strong floral component. Pours rich clear golden with bright orange highlights, snow white head. Sharp flavor with strong but cool alcohol, some subtle warming in the chest; black pepper, clove, lemon, some pear esters, a little mace/allspice, white wine spritzer, lemon, orange peel, hibiscus. Medium bitterness, no vanilla or sugary residuals, but a little resin in the drying aftertaste, where the going gets rocky. Touch of paper, but no pine, light tartness nowhere thankfully near sour, full body bolstered by the heft of the alcohol. Touch of dough/caramel in with the yeast and bitterness at the last. A great fusion, has distinct Saison overtones on a spicy Tripel base, bracing flavor with a complex layer of fruity American hops on top. [2016.03.06: 4.0]
