Halftime Beverage

The Abbey Style Triple pours a crystal clear deep golden, I can see my fingerprints on the other side of the glass. A one finger white head forms onthe pour but quickly falls to a skimming with a thick ring. A swirl here and there brings the head right back. Bursts of carbonation bubbles rise to the surface.

The aroma is the best aspect of this beer. Smells like a simple Belgian tripel but with bigger doses of each aroma. Big on the clove infused pear which is the dominant smell coming fro mthe glass. Some green apple and candi sugar are sprinkled in there as well. A solid dose of alcohol spiciness brings up the backend.

Flavor is much less subdued than the aroma. Clove washes over the tongue. Pear and green apples come throuch occasionally. Mild alcohol spiciness on the finish. The problem here is the flavors are weak and muddled.

Medium-light body but with somewhat of a watery consistency. A little light on the carbonation. Some alcohol vapors rise through the nose and throat on the swallow.

This beer is easy enough to finish a glass but that's about all I'll want in a sitting.

Not what I was expecting from Southampton. This just seems like a muddled not very well put together tripel. A disappointment, my first from this brewery.

A - Pour produces a very fizzy butter colored two inch head that is made up of mostly small bubbles. Reduces to a sturdy skim on the top and shows good staying power from there. Body is golden in color, clean and clear, and shows tons of tiny bubbles racing to the surface.

S - Spiciness of pepper and coriander right up front. Big Belgian yeastiness on the nose. Banana and a touch of clove.

T - Starts off really yeasty, which also brings in the spices. Coriander, clove, and black pepper. Fruitiness comes along with banana, apricot, and some tropical fruit. Fruity flavors continue and bring in some coconut as well. Pepper sort of reappears in the aftertaste.

M - Medium to full bodied. Soft carbonation.

Overall - Pretty good tripel. Not overly complex, but very well balanced and drinkable for 8%. Well worth checking out.
