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

Bottle at the Funky 8, Brooklyn, NYC. Big doughy malt character. Very sweet. Pretty typical tripel. I wouldnt want to drink this all day, but in moderation its fine.

Draught & Shannon Rose. Clear golden with small foamy whitish head, faint malt aroma, high carbonation, slightly sweet malty taste with light bitterness and Belgian yeast profile, alcohol undertones, smooth body, abrupt malty finish. Very smooth and easy to drink.

12 ounce bottle. Astonishing. probable the best Trippel I have had that was not Belgian. It should be better on tap, right? Where is that bar? The aroma and palate- mouthfeel stood out the most to me.

jcr (2680) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - DEC 17, 2016
Bottle. Golden body with a large, lasting white head. Aroma of grapefruit, citrus, clove, pineapple, floral hops. The flavor is moderately to heavily sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, syrupy texture, lively carbonation. Sweet with clove, banana, citrus flavors. Yet theres a hop bitterness that lingers. Not a classic tripel, by far. Just OK.

Bottle from Total Wine, Gainesville. Pours clear gold with a small white head. Aroma of floral hops, citrus peel, banana, bubblegum. Flavor is bubblegum, yeast, syrup, sweet banana, clove, sugar. A bit on the sweet side, but not bad.

AirForceHops (6952) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 27, 2016
12 oz. bottle with a best by date of 6/20/2017. Clear in color gold within lasting head in a chalice. Aroma is sugar, honey, and weak yeast.

Flavor shows a sweetness from sugar and yeast. Carbonation gives a mild effervescent feel over the pilot. Flavor and aroma run hand in hand. Doesnt have the huge yeast character that a Belgian would have. It is ok.

EvanFriend (559) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2016
A beer that tastes of clove and banana, your usual Belgian yeast flavors, a bit of spiciness. Could use a hint more carbonation if you ask me. Overall, a decent tripel. Not great, but certainly worth drinking again for the price. Best New Jersey beer Ive had.

jflopsu (1527) - New Jersey, USA - APR 16, 2016
Pours a clear gold. Has a citrus, what and yeast aroma. A strong citrus, wheat, yeast, and sweet candy taste. A sweet and yeast aftertaste.

Dacrza (928) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - MAR 24, 2016
DATE TASTED: March 24, 2016... GLASSWARE: Affligem chalice.. OCCASION: ... APPEARANCE: pours a crackling golden orange with sparse effervescence... mostly clear... the head rings out to an almost cloudless... zero lacing in the glass... AROMA: a beautifully aromatic, spring flower dominates with grapefruit and orange... the banana, clove and spice suggests raw yeastiness... TASTE: a sweet, hoppy strength ripples through the profile, with astringent yeastiness, banana and clove... a sharp Saaz suggests a pilsner, while the the malt is a bit of cracker and bread... a balanced tripel, which is not the usual... OVERALL: a powerfully alcoholic, clean, crisp ale that rewards in its richness and displays the capabilities of Flying Fish... balance is the key to this abbey, with notes of honey and orange peel late...

Decent tripel with some clove and light bubble gum and banana on the nose. Big head. Spritzy feel. I like the light citrus notes in the flavor from the more than normal for the style hopping.
