COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
You are holding the inaugural release in a multi-year brewing experiment-to brew a series of beers as diverse as the great state of New Jersey. Our theme is the state-long artery that connects us. Each beer will focus on the unique aspect of an individual exit, whether an ingredient or event. The journey begins at Exit 4- right up the street from the Flying Fish brewery. As one of the first craft brewers to embrace Belgian-style beers, weve chosen to start with a Belgian trippel, finished with plenty of American hops. Note the hazy golden hue and the aroma of citrus with hints of banana and clove. Then taste the Belgian malt flavors and a subdued bitterness in the finish. Bottle conditioned, this beer will develop as it ages. Enjoy.

Malts: Malto Franco-Belge Pils Malt, Weyerman Acidulated, White Wheat, Demerara Sugar
Hops: Simcoe, Columbus, Palisades, Amarillo
Yeast: Belgian Abbey
Original Gravity: 21.5 Plato

4oz draft. Lite yellow with bare white head. Yeast and grains, with banana and clove notes. Messy and offputting flavor for me. Not a fan.

Bottle to shaker glass, pours hazy golden-orange. Quick white head with some lacing and light retention. Aroma of orange peel and banana. Taste is slightly sweet up front, sour in the middle with some bitterness. Medium bodied, lively carbonation, thick mouth feel. Finishes long and funky bitter. Tasting notes of clove, banana, Belgian yeast, grass, smoke, lemon and bubblegum. The label says American Trippel. Yep, no problem with that! A winner!

katrinaez (1767) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 28, 2015
Very hoppy with a slight Belgium yeasty feel and taste. Completely clear, with hardly any haze. I can taste a touch of the banana but not the clove mentioned. Its a spice but more hops than anything. Aroma is a lot of funk. Bottle.

This beer is refreshing, not overbearing. Not a heavyweight beer. Nice accompaniment to tapas or artisanal pizza. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
