BEER INFO

Brewed by:

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.

12 fl. oz - bottled on 2/2/16. Sampled on Feb 20, 2016.

Yellow pour with big and boisterous white foamy head.

Aroma: Rye grain notes of course but a lot more spice, clove, Belgian yeast, and pear too.

Medium and smooth body.

The taste has a grainy malt character to start and then the spicy bitterness really bursts through at the finish. It exhibits the traditional Belgian characters of a Tripel with this grainy twist thrown in. I liked it.

3.8/5  rDev +3.8%
look: 5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.75

Look: Light yellow, lasting head, nice lacing, hazy
Smell: Sweet Belgian yeast fruity esters, a little banana, some tropical fruit aroma
Taste: Belgian yest esters, sweet, bread, strong tasting finish that lingers (not bad or good), flowery/citrus hop flavor and finishes with a slight rye spice and warming alcohol
Feel: High carbonation, creamy mouth feel
Overall: a nice beer especially for the price. It's a good cheap big Belgian, but comes up short to the more expensive tripels. Got this with a variety pack. It's about a month old. Needs to be warm before consuming. Most beers I start cool and sip, this one needs to be warm

Heard a lot about this Tripel and I know Phil came make some amazing stuff with Belgians so I decided to pick up a single bottle of this stuff. Ended up pretty disappointed, the look was there but the flavor was a bit off to me. The yeast just didn't seem right and I wasn't a huge fan of the rye here. I normally love a spicy/estery Tripel but this one couldn't seal the deal. Body was a bit too heavy in the end, as well.

Can poured into a pint glass. Light and clean appearance, almost too average looking. Taste is far more interesting though, with more sweet and hop flavor than a typical tripple. Rye spice could be stronger but still helps the overall balance. Definitely worth a try!
