COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
Ingredients: Marris Otter, Black, and Crystal malts, Oats, Target hops.
Launched as a 7.2% abv bottle conditioned beer in 2005 when the brewery moved to Witney. In 2011 briefly switched to filtered in 330ml bottles, then back to bottle conditioned at 6.7%, later returning to 500ml bottles. Name changed from Triple to Triple III in 2015.
Thanks to the two fermentations in the Brakspear ’Double Drop’ system, this highly aromatic and satisfying strong beer delivers its rich flavour with subtlety and balance. Crystal, Black and Maris Otter pale malts provide the backbone of this outstanding rich beer. Hops are added three times to provide a good balance between bitterness and fragrance. This is a triple hopped strong beer, packaged in individually numbered bottles.

500 mL bottle poured into a pint glass. Orange-red, opaque with a creamy head. Perfurmed sweet fruit aroma. Fresh and smooth if surprisingly lacking in body, but still quite refreshing. Not bad but I’d rather have their 7.2% triple.

mike_77 (3890) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - MAR 23, 2015
Brown and clear with thin, lacy head. Sweet aroma with dried fruits, especially raisins. Flavour is also sweet with some banana esters and caramel. Interesting but too sweet.

wozap (307) - Węgorzewo, POLAND - MAR 23, 2015
Butelka nr 195157. Bursztynowe, piana drobna. Aromat biszkopty, owoce czrewone. Smak słodycz, odczucie pełni, gestości na języku. Piwo rozgrzewa przyjemnie gardło, wysycenie srednie, piwo degustacyjne.

DIBBLE (101) - Worthing, West Sussex, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2015
Clear dark copper coloured with no head and little aroma to my cold filled nose. Full bodied malty hoppy flavour however more than makes up for it. Well balanced. Rich and complex yet doesn?t overwhelm the taste buds. Lovely.

nihtila (1616) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 16, 2015
16.1.2014. Tumman kuparin värinen. Tuoksussa hieman karamellia, mallasta. Suutuntuma hiilihappoinen eikä kovin tukeva, melko pehmeä. Maussa hieman karamellia ja mallasta, hieman kypsää hedelmää. Ihan kiva, mutta ei suuria tunteita.

spacecube (1268) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2014
500ml bottle, pours ruby with a small tan head. Malty aroma with caramel and toffee notes, ripe banana, hints of chocolate as well. Full bodied with an oily creamy texture developing to a finish that has some bitterness but keeps sweetness through. Soft carbonation. Decent.

Moravius (809) - Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 12, 2014
Flasche Nr. 157152 (laut Webseite abgefüllt Juli 2014), von Getränkefeinkost, Berlin. - Kupferrot, leicht trüb; für ein englisches Bier ungewöhnlich reiche Schaumkrone. - Nase angenehm toastmalzig mit mildem englischen Hopfen, Rosinen und leichter Säure. - Antrunk brauseartig dünn mit getoastetem Malz und eher mildem fruchtig-herbem Hopfen, überreifer süßlicher Frucht (Banane) und einem deutlichen säuerlichen Stich. Viel zu rezent, dünnes Mundgefühl. Im Abgang gut bitter aber ohne ausgeprägte Hopfenaromen. Kräftig bitterer, etwas leerer Nachtrunk. - Wenig befriedigendes Ale mit schönen Malznoten aber unpassenden faulig-fruchtigen und säuerlichen Noten, erstaunlich wäßrig für ein Bier von fast 7 %. Besser genießbar, wenn man die Kohlensäure herausgeschüttelt hat.

Umoyk (50) - , - DEC 3, 2014
Boozy, with quite a lot of banana esters atypical in British beers. Hops come through as floral and spicy. Sweet and syrupy. ok.
