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.

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.

Flat and lifeless, no "pop". Dull palate that tasted almost watered down.

Pours light gold into a trappist glass. Bright white head quickly recedes to hug rim. Candi and light bubblegum aromas. Thin upfront with hay and bread turning tingly and hot in the lasting dusty fruit and hop finish.

Head is small, frothy, white and is fully diminishing. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is medium, dry with a lively carbonation and a very dry and lightly alcoholic finish.
