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

750 ml bottle shared by beastiefan2k. Pour is a cloudy orange amber with floaties and a one inch white head that falls pretty quickly. Aroma is clove yeast and honey sweetness. Behind that initial aroma is a nice straw element which integrates nicely with the yeast and sweetness. Taste reverses, and starts with the straw, quickly moving to the clove from the yeast and the light honey malt sweetness. Taste is a bit disjointed, not as smooth or integrated as the nose. Palate is medium, oily and mouth coating. Light carbonation, overall an easy to drink Trippel. Nice one, thanks for sharing this Eugene.

750ml bottle, with thanks to Beastiefan2k for sharing. Pours a cloudy orange golden with small white flecks. Aroma is nice with light clove that doesnt take over, fresh citrus, and some general yeasty spice. Flavor is also nicely done, with more yeasty spice, fresh citrus and gentle clove. This is one of the few that has clove but keeps it in check. Thanks for sharing Eugene.

kwerikson (178) - burlington, New Jersey, USA - FEB 9, 2010
12ounce 6 pack. pours a clear gold producing a finger thick off white head that fell at a medium rate. the body is gold with a coppery overtone and slight bubbles rising up. the aromas are grassy, citrusy, and slightly yeasty. theres some fruit and floral notes also. it is medium bodied and sweet with a light bitter finish which helps it to balance out. i taste some lemon, low alpha acid hops, light banana, its flowery, and earthy with a really light spice note. it finishes clean and almost crisp with a sweet aftertaste that wasnt bad at all. glad i finally drank this one.

What a great beer. Holy cow some pretentious beer shmucks here. i can throw out superfluous terms too. this is a damn good beer. if you like lagers, a good intro into ale styles. Seems like FF used a good deal of Amarillo hops with a kick of citrus, ample seafoam head, big citrus fruits/cardamom on the nose...aint i cool. Hell of a beer. Great offering of an American style tripel- its not a traditional Belgian tripel, just an endeavour. That said, this is a truly great American beer, that as a tripel, can most certainly knockout Chouffes popular one. I would even take this over a St. Bernardus and other Belgians. To rate this lower than Golden Monkey or Unibroue seems like an awful lot of snobbery. Serious 5s to Flying Fish for taking a chance and kicking ass- just try this beer and forget the ratings. -a NJ native

25.4 oz bottle. Foggy orange brown with a lacy white head. Nose is orange, ginger and perfume; odd. Sharp carb, cloying but not sweet. Finishes chalky. Taste is yeasty orangeade and pine with bitter lemon oil.

SphinxTX (2875) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - DEC 28, 2009
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours a murky gold with white head. Aroma is pretty light, some citrus, light malt, faint funk, a little fruity esters. Flavor of crisp citrus, some funkiness, , a little wheat, grainy, faint bitterness. Mouth feel is light-medium body with light, fizzy carbonation. Overall, not bad at all, very easy drinking and refreshing....

JAXSON (576) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 19, 2009
Bottle. Poured a deep gold, somewhat hazy. Big, fruity nose with a nice hop presence and a strange, "round" note. Very lively and effervescent in the mouth. Big orange, banana, some butterscotch maybe, tropical fruits. Despite all these fruit sugars it finishes extremely dry and short, which was awesome. Champagne like at times. Excellent.
