Notes/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.

Appearance was a hazy dark yellow with a very thin head that left some trails around the glass. The smell was mostly a bit of citrus from the hops and then a bit of booze smell on the end. Very little to no rye in the scent that I could find. The taste had the hops and a bit of the booze but I got more of the rye on the finish for a semi-sweet taste. Not bad. Liked it a lot.

look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

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.
