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.

oh6gdx (23707) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 5, 2013
Bottled. Coppery brown colour with a mediumsized off-white foamy head. Aroma is floral, grassy, mild caramelly and nutty notes. Flavour is bitter hops, some fruity and caramelly notes along with mild resin and wood. Still rather mild and actually watery for being this strong.

Miksu (5030) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - MAY 25, 2013
0.33 l bottle from Alko. Amber color. Aromas of nuts, pine, rummy caramel, almonds and toffee. Nutty, caramelly and toffeish taste with pine resins, muscovado sugar, some wine gum like fruitiness and some raisiny notes. Medium body. Alcohol is perhaps a bit sharp which makes this feel stronger than 6.7 %. Nice fruit cake aromas. The taste needs more malty richness, a bit more sweetness an fullness would do good.
