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.

A. Golden, mostly clear, good frothy head that holds on and laces a fairly solid screen.

S. Phenolic, fairly belgianesque, a little rye spice and some bread, but hacked in half by an acetone aroma that is harsh and boozy, bad brett like.

T. Harsh. Light enough flowery up front with a bread like sweetness touched with honey, but quickly develops into the harsh paint thinner that I get in the nose, mixed with booze.

M. Thick slick body through and through, but brought mostly to balance with a high end carbonation.

O. Im sorry to anyone I sent this to in a trade as an extra, I should have tasted it first. If it isn't badly infected, then it is incredibly poorly done. I've given everything they make a chance: some excel, most are drinkable but forgettable, but this is terrible. Drain pour as soon as I finished reviewing it.

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Slightly hazy orange body. Small white head. Settles to a thick collar and some nice islands of foam.

Smell - Phenolic yeast aromas immediately. Sweet fruitiness. A hint of rye, but not much. As soon as it warms, it gives off a chemical aroma that is really off-putting. Like a melted plastic.

Taste - Fruity and a bit tropical up front. Quite sweet. Rye kicks in as the sweetness reaches unacceptably high levels and cuts it a little bit. Mild rye spice. Very slight bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Medium heavy. Medium carbonation.

Overall - I'm glad that bizarre smell didn't translate into the taste. It's a decent beer, but I keep sipping it with trepidation because of that aroma. It's so hard to pull of this style.
