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.

Bottle thanks to who brought it to PPSG’10. Golden hazy pour with some white head. Fruit influenced flavor with sugar and yeast influences. Some light warming on the finish.

Minimal belgian yeast notes in the aroma. Golden in color but not clear. A bit of a sweet, belgian yeast finish...light fruit notes. A little disappointed by this tripel, didnt really stand out in any fashion.

Not the greatest tripel I’ve had, but a good effort. The appearance and nose were its high points. A very pretty golden hue that was nice and cloudy. Nose was a good mix of pepper, bubble gum, clove, cola and pineapple. The palate was disappointing with carbonation too soft and texture way too watery for a triple.

Real nice triple. Poured from a 22 oz bomber, this beer shows little head and a nice hazy quality. Taste is a bit thin but this reminds me somewhat of the Chimay White in that it is an understated triple. Understated is not something one normally associates with American takes on foreign styles, and for this I think Southampton is to be lauded.

2008 bottle at Mr. Beery’s in Sarasota. Pours clear deep gold with thin white head. The aroma is full and pungent sweetness from sugary malts to very ripe pears, apricots and apples as well as mild sweet honey notes. The taste is oh so smooth with smooth sweet malts melding into a mix of ripe fruity sweetness like pears, apples and apricots. I also get mild sweet honey notes, smooth muted and blended spiciness and a faint touch of yeast. Just silky smooth and yummy all the way around.

Bottle from the Publick House (and not the new contracted brewed ones) at Peter’s 2nd annual spring gathering. Pours a milky yellow with a thin white head. Sweet fruit, musk and bits of yeast. Sweet plums and pear. Caramel and fruit on the finish. A bit of age starting to show on this one.

Taste at PilsnerPeter’s 2nd Annual Gathering
From ’04 according to someone. Straight gold with a white head. The nose and flavor are shot here, no tripel elements remaining though I get a fair amount of alcohol, pepper, bubblegum, and celery. Quite watery through and through. I’ll definitely be looking for a younger version down the road.

UPDATED: APR 29, 2010 Location: 22 oz bottle from Whole Foods-Bowery, 4/23/10

Aroma: The nose has some citrus to it, as well as a strong spice presence, and some sugary notes
Appearance: Pours a mostly clear orange color with a small white head
Flavor: The taste is medium-high sweet, lots of spice, and minimal bitterness
Palate: This one has a light body, a somewhat oily mouthfeel, and a lively carbonation
Overall Impression: Overall, I found this beer to be pretty enjoyable. A nice flavorful American attempt at the style. Good, not great, but very solid.

22 oz bottle poured into my Chimay chalice. A- body is a translucent golden yellow that pours with an impressive 1-2 finger eggshell white head. head fades slowly but completely leaving no lacing behind in the glass. cloudiness is dynamic and much more present at the bottom of the bottle. S- Nose is faint, but decent. Fruity esters of apples and perhaps pears are upfront, with a hint of spiciness, a hint of alcohol, and lots of yeast. T- flavor is similar to the nose. A light, dry fruitiness upfront with an accent of spiciness and a subtle yeast backbone. The finish is adds a touch of phenolic flavors but also has a slight presence of floral hop flavor. Slight remnants of the initial flavor along with medium strength alcohol warmth linger-but overall clean and dry. P-Low carbonation and light body with alcohol consistency and yeast fighting for dominance, but both are faint. O- This is a pretty good tripel overall. A bit boozier than my favorites but maybe this needs some aging (I aged Merry Monks and took that took care of the booziness problem). I may purchase this again but will cellar for awhile before retasting. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-04-2008 02:51:06

Very reminisant of one of my favorites of the Abbey Ail type, Grimbergan, it poura a nice cloudy orangy brown color, very floral fragrent nose, medium carbonation, nice after taste, pleasing mouth feel. Southampton has made a very passable Abbey Style ale here, I look forward to having it again.
