This was great find on the shelves at Shoreline Beverage, which has a dedicated Southampton space, at $11.99 per 750ml. I picked it up and took it home with the Talapia and the fresh pasta.

The cork was tough to pry off, but once it popped like Veuve Cliquot, the head rushed to the top of the bottle to greet me. That was pretty sight in foam as any thing I have eagerly anticipated in beer, except for a St. Bernadus Triple I found on draft.

The Triple poured to small head in my pint glass and I took the first sniff of the great flavors coming forth from my glass. The taste immediately following was a majestic quality, similar to that of the St. Bernadus Triple I first had a few weeks ago. I should have noted all the orange, brown sugar, hops, and creamy malt coming at me at once, but it was so smooth...I was loving every minute of it.

While I don't think it went well with the jerk-seasoned fish, the Triple was entirely its own master. I should have bought a case of it.

3.78/5  rDev -1.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - orange murky amber color with no head and no carbonation.

S - mildly sweet milky and like a whisky I can't name. Hints of abv burn and candied figs or carmeled apples. It's very faint.

T - not bad. Flavors are weak but they got the idea right. No off flavors or blanket hops. It is not as good as real Belgian triples but it is a good imitation

M - abv has a bit of sting but still fine for this style.

D - for $4 it's cheaper than a flight to brussles you couldn't tell it's a knockoff... But only if you drank several.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Thanks to wishuwerebeer for sharing this '07 bomber. Poured into a snifter, the brew appears a clear golden with faint spotty yeast particulate stuck in suspension. White froth is quick to recede from the initial finger formation. A swirl releases a few bubbles that hardly form a lacing across the top yet it does produce some spotty lace on the glass.

The smell is reminiscent of pear skins and apple with a light spicy hints of clove. A little more reminiscent of cider in the aroma than the expected tripel. Mild pepper comes out once warm with a bit of cheese. Overall this is very apple forward in the nose.

Tastes mildly spicy from the Belgian yeast contribution. Apple cider is hinted throughout with both suggestions of skin and fleshy apples. Cloves and pepper providing a supporting role to break up the ale flavoring and bring the focus back into the expected tripel character. Pale biscuit malt gives a bready aftertaste which is enjoyable.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest level of carbonation. Nice drinkability with little to no abv impact despite it being 8% and allowed to gradually warm up. Overall this is very mild tripel with solid focus on apple flavoring that was an interesting experience. Not my favorite in the style but enjoyable nonetheless.

4.43/5  rDev +15.4%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

pours a deep brown-yellow, like most tripels should.

Smell is nothing impressive, but my sense of smells sucks and I'm not sniffing my beers, I am drinking them.

Pleasant taste and mouthfeel. I try a LOT of tripels, this is nothing extraordinairy, but nothing to be overlooked either. Ranks high on my list of tripels.

If you are a fan of belgian ales and/or tripels, add this to your list to try. It won't be the best, but it will be very good.

On tap at Zeno’s Pub - State College, PA - Oct 14, 2007. Light hibiscus and orange spritz aroma, laid down in a bed of wet grain. Pours a strikingly clear pale gold, topped with a minimal white head. Flavor is a dense, sugar imbued sweep. There’s some hexaneous lemon, lots of bright, glowing yeast phenolics, over gentle pear, sweet apple and melon. A nip of warmth and glow of the yeast products, in a minerally husk. Backend gushes out with a chewy, hop gum and spritz of lemon zest. Nicely dry and comparatively clean finish. Missing some depth and carbonation. Could use more forceful, bright percolation. Overall, decent, but not excelling.

3.58/5  rDev -6.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

hazy yellow colored amber with a very big white frothy head of foamy lace across the top. Very nice retention left behind copious amounts of side glass lace and a very nice little film
across the top.

A nice light wheat aroma could be detected as well and this blended in nicely with the yeast. It was a light aroma overall though not really making any kind of striking impression on me. light hints of peaches or pears, but nothing that was too terribly strong to be honest. No hint of the alcohol in here what so ever and it really had quite a light profile. Some light grassy flavors in and around the finish with a decent little bit of drying at the end.

3.6/5  rDev -6.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Light fizzy head fades quickly to almost nothing, over light golden yellow wheat little hazy color.

Nose light golden Belgian malts, plenty of Belgian yeast fruit, apple, pear, apricot, light yeast aroma, light booze and sweet candi sugar.

Taste lighter overall, some Belgian malts, light wheat like taste, a light sweet syrup that's not really candi sugar, with a bit of booze warmth, light spices, plenty of fruits apple, pear, apricot again, light golden raisin, finishes still semi sweet, lingering sweet candy flavors, light malts, lots of fruit, and a slight boozy taste.

Mouth of med bodied although it feels light for the style, and lower carbonation.

Overall an ok attempt at it, sweet, could have used a bit more body, carbonation and a drier finish bit more malts too, but fairly drinkable and decent tasting.

3.45/5  rDev -10.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Appearance (in tulip out of a 750mL) is cloudy amber with fine white head.

Nose is mellow orange and yeast. Pleasant, suggesting a full-bodied taste.

Taste has a striking note of sweet alcohol which is balanced by carbonation and some faint hop bitterness. Faint traces of apple linger, but the taste doesn't quite live up to the nose.

Mouthfeel is pleasant, but faintly prickly-- nothing exceptional.

Overall nice, but not outstanding for the style.

Southampton triple 07 vintage

A-4.5
S-5
T-4.5
M-4.5
D-5

Poured from bottle into my Southampton oversized snifter, pours a bright golden yellow with a small quickly vanishing white head

Smells like a fruit basket apples and almost mangos come to mind with some earthy oat tones absolutely amazing

Tastes very well balanced, great belgian yeast and malt taste on the first sip with a sweet fruity almost sour after taste

Mouthfeel is great carbonation has held up pretty well very light drinking

Drinkability is pretty high for a triple, cannot find the 8%abv anywhere

Very glad I picked up a few of these at the southampton IRS release party. The 4 years turned this from a okay beer to an amazing piece of brewing.

3.95/5  rDev +2.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from 22oz bomber into my Unibroue tulip.

Appearance: hazy golden body with some lethargic effervescence and a finger of frothy ivory head. Color is quite nice but the head could be better; I worry about what this bodes for the carbonation.

Smell: rich, malty aroma with some nice pear and apple characteristics. Slightly musty and a little blunt, but pretty darn good.

Taste: flavor profile is consistent with the aroma. There is a pretty good maltiness here backed by apples and pears, though there is a bit more fruity acidity here than the aroma suggested. Malt lingers nicely on the palate, giving a pretty decent aftertaste which matches the primary flavors.

Mouthfeel: body is medium with a somewhat decent level of carbonation. There is some creaminess here, but for a tripel I really expect a lot more.

Drinkability: a solid, middle-of-the-road flavor profile is well-executed here, with a good aroma and a decent mouthfeel. A little more carbonation would help this beer a lot, in my opinion.
