Style: Tripel

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.50%

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.

This was poured into a chalice. The appearance was a bronzed light copper color with a thin white cap of a head. Messy lacing. The smell takes the rye in a nice spicy sort of way. Bubblegum, light citrus, light breadiness, some blueberries (but that comes across super light). The taste follows the aroma more combined between the spiciness and the sweet. Dry spicy rye to bubblegum aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body. Carbonation felt good. Semi-dry spice hits in the harshness. Overall, I’d say it was pretty good as a tripel. I could see myself coming back to it.

This is a most interesting take on the Belgian Tripel style - there is a bit of Rye in the background - not too overwhelming, but present...A solid American representation of the Belgian Tripel...nominal nose with Rye on the front and back with effervescence cleaning the middle...
