New Jersey brews: River Horse & Flying Fish

A trip to a bottle shop in New Jersey was made more pleasurable when we discovered two local brews: River Horse and Flying Fish.

We selected the Tripel and Pale Ale from River Horse and the Flyish Fish ESB Amber and IPA. No tasting notes exist but I remember liking the River Horse Tripel Horse, below, very much.

The Tripel Horse is described as follows on the River Horse Brewing Company website:
Notice a unique aromatic nose with a hint of vanilla esters, which comes from the Belgian ale yeast. Tripel Horse has a big body and rich mouth feel and finishes mostly dry with only a touch of sweetness. If you shy from some of the sweeter Belgian ales, we think you will enjoy this one. The palate improves with age, so keep some on hand and you can ride Tripel Horse down a new path with each opened bottle.
