COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Southampton Trappist-style TRIPLE ale is our rendition of this classic, deceptively strong style of golden ale. Brewed with the highest respect for the tradition of the great Belgian Trappist brewers.

Lurking in the cellar I got around to opening this a few months after it first got there. It has been a while since I checked them out but the trend seems to be the same - the small batch recipes are great but the others range from messy to so-so. I’d pass on this one unless you must tick every New York beeer.

Aroma / Appearance - Hazy with a lemon base the crisp white head and spindly legs give it a decent presence. Yeast, apple cider, cotton candy, and fresh cut greens vie for attention. Bouncing from flavor to flavor it has no focus at all.

Flavor / Palate - Apples and cotton candy make this taste like drinking a state fair midway. Malt carries it through to a lingering and dense finish. Winding down it reminds me of sitting outside on a dry fall evening. The biggest flaw is a sparkling carbonation that is way too over the top. Otherwise this might be a solid beer.

Clear gold beer. Softish dry palate Spicy lagerish malt with a little bit of repressed orange. Finishes dry and a bit spicy with some aniseed. A pretty dull tripel.

Clear golden yellow with small white head. Aroma yeast and lemon and spices. Medium body, a little carbonation, no alcohol. Flavor is yeasty and fruity and somewhat sweet and a little like bubblegum. Pleasant enough and true to style but lacks complexity and sort of thin yet syrupy at the same time.

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 Reviewed from notes (2007). A: Amber gold body. My glass had almost no head to it. Did the bartender hold on to it too long before bringing it over to me? S: Lemon, yeasty, mild fruity malt sweetness. Crisp aroma. T: Grains are upfront and balanced by a spicy yeast with a mild phenol-like finish M: Light body with a decent amount of carbonation throughout

Bottle thanks to sournotes! Thanks! Pour is chunk filled clear straw, with a decent white head. Not much lacing. Aroma is white fruit, slight tartness, nice. Taste is lots of white fruit, with lots of fruity, juicy tartness. Quite nice. Fairly dry finish, high carbonation level.

Looks like a triple, tastes like a triple, it is a triple! Spicy yeast flavors accompany this golden ale with notes of apple, hay, and bread. Medium sweet finish.

Yep a traditional triple. Holy crap. Sweet Belgian pale malts and the floral aroma that comes with the yeast. Sweet flavors balanced finish. But ita just another tripel.

Bottled. Golden colour with a mediumsized white head. Turns hazy once the last drops from the bottle goes in. Aroma is citrus fruits, spices, mild candy as well as some mild earthyness. Flavour is fruity, spicy, mildly yeasty as well as sugary and mildly wooden. Pleasantly balanced.

750 ml. Cloudy golden body with a fizzy white head, rapidly diminishing. Aroma of clove, sweet apple, citrus, lemon. The flavor is moderately to heavily sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture and lively carbonation. Nice, dry finish. Along the lines of a classic triple and close to being really good. But it’s a bit grainy tasting and not very complex.
