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

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUN 1, 2010
12 oz bottle from GoT. Pours clear golden yellow with a small pure white head. Aroma of Belgian sugar, spices and some lemon and citrus hops. The flavor is mildly sweet with sugar and malt and balanced out with a hop bitterness and a light sourness from the yeast. Medium body with an average carbonation and a dry finish. Unlike most Trippels this one isnt all sweet and spicy, the hops give it a nice twist. Thanks Jay.

Strong Belgian aroma, good spices, and a nice malt finish. This was a very good beer. Golden in color, hazy and a fluffy head. Big Fruity banana and grapefruit flavors. Great Tripel

JFURYCAT (1078) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2010
Usually Im a sucker for a tripel but not 100% of the time. This one starts strong with a heavy whiff of cloves amongst a malty layer which has a caramel tone to it. Im not sure this melds well with the bubblegum flavors. Nice white lacing above this orange-colored brew. Kind of smoky in the finish and am not sure that was intentional, could be a generous helping of hops to give this the "American tripel" label.

TheHopster (1107) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - MAY 15, 2010
(Bottle) An authentic Belgian Trippel from the Garden State. Subtle aroma of yeast and citrus with quickly dissipating white head. Predominant malt taste with hoppy finish. Well done by Flying Fish.

GodOfThunder (1249) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 13, 2010
Bottle. Pours a clear and fizzy golden orange color. Aroma of orange peel, belgian yeast and alcohol with some citrus hops. Flavor is more citrus hops with the belgian tripel flavors in the finish. Nice brew.

Scouser (348) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 29, 2010

lamas (1628) - Washington DC, USA - APR 28, 2010
Bottle. Pours a hazy dirty gold color with a smallish light-tan head. Plenty of bananas in the aroma along with some lemons, cloves, allspice, oranges and rinds, grapefruits, caramel, and vanilla. Goes down medium to full-bodied and a tad sticky/syrupy. Very sweet candied sugar, caramel, and some bananas upfront taste-wise. Some mild and smoothing vanilla follows. Slightly bitter and drying at the end with some grapefruitiness. Warming alcohol is present throughout, though nowhere near the amount expected from a 9.5% ABV. Very enjoyable.
