Style: Tripel

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.50%

Availability: Winter

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.

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.

4/25....pours clear gold with a light touch of white foam. Light rye nose, but almost nonexistent. Lemon soapy taste, harsh bitter. Underlying corn sweetness. Most beers from Two Roads are solid, but this is a miss.
