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.

MaBeer1972 (2065) - Reno, Nevada, USA - FEB 25, 2014
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.

appearance: clear amber gold, short creamy white head. taste: honey, candi sugar, slightly herbal and floral. taste: as the aroma indicates, with some peppery spice and crackery, pie crust malts. finish: sweet, slightly spicy, lingering floral notes. notes: Not a bad tripel. Slightly spicy, which was nice. Draft at Victoria Gastro Pub in Columbia, Maryland.

DATE: July 16, 2017... OCCASION: watching Liberating a Continent with Shan after a beautiful summer day spent with Bob and the family... GLASSWARE: Chimay chalice... pours a yellow amber body with active effervescence, yet opaque enough to blur vision through it... the head is white, single-fingered, and frothy, with creamy arcs around its lip... pepper, clove, berry, floral hop, pear, and lemon make for the premise of an engaging flavor cocktail... at first sip, strikes the teeth with a soft hammer, tingling the tongue and lingering at the throat with a dry, honeyed finish... medium-bodied at best, with the subtlety of its 9.5% ABV cloaked in the smooth, inviting draw... clove, pear, honey, varied herbs, lemongrass, and apple provide a quality--but not overpowering--profile... a unique take on the style that often is too often impeccable to my taste... falls just short of a must-have, but definitely is a treat in a mix-twelve I luckily purchased....

DiarmaidBHK (4936) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2017
Draft at Front Row Pizzeria. Pours light brown with a white head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Has that Belgian yeast thing on the nose. Has a fair amount of rye flavor on the tongue which blends rather oddly with the juicy fruit base. Finished clean. Hides it’s booze well. A rather odd duck of a beer.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7796) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 3, 2017
Sampled on draft this beer poured a dark honey color with a large foamy off white head that left incredible lacing. The aroma was citric and dry with musty and chalky notes. The flavor was bitter, tart and dry with faint mustiness, citrus and band aid. Long finish. Medium body. Disappointing.

Mep3222 (1565) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - JUN 23, 2017
Banana nutty clove Belgian yeasty aroma and flavors with some sweet candy sugar and a peppery spice finish. Rye balances the sweet candy sugar well. Full flavored and balanced and not syrupy or too sweet. Rye adds an interesting dynamic and the peppery balances the sweet. Nice overall. Not too boozy for a nearly 10% beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MadRobin (2988) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - JUN 21, 2017
On tap at Owens Ordinary in North Bethesda, MD. Very lightly hazy, slightly chartreuse gold with a fine off-white head and amazing lacing. Aroma of tropical fruit, coriander, rye, yeast, lemony citrus, caramel and banana. Taste of coriander, banana, rye, cloves, tropical fruit, caramel and tangerine. Full body and medium/low carbonation. While not the world's best example of a tripel, this still a rich, delightful beer. It is a tripel with lots of fruity hops, plenty of rye and an unexpectedly full mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

gripweed57 (2464) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JUN 14, 2017
12 ounce bottle. Medium gold color. Moderate frothy white head. Sweet yeasty malt nose. Tangy fruity flavor upfront yields to subtle dryish notes. Warming alcohol n middle. Tart, grainy malt finish.

3.4
17Beer (357) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 5, 2017
Citrusy smells with some yeast. Pours an orange gold with a thin white head. Big sour tastes of yeast with rye notes to add bite but all is balanced well. Medium carbonation. Intersting and good.

3.5
solidfunk (8965) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 17, 2017
Some coriander and some florals. Pours orange with some head. Light sweet finish. A hint of oak like walnuts. Tap at Churchkey.

raymow (1668) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 1, 2016
can (thanks Nick) - cloudy golden color. Belgiany aroma. Tastes exactly like some of the well known Belgian imports. Very good.
