ACHops' rating

ACHops (761) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 4, 2012
Nice golden color. Spicy aroma. Flavor is dominated by cloves, but surprisingly not in a bad way. Slight banana/fig taste. I suppose for a ’Northwest’ Tripel, the hops are at par, but strong for this style. That’s a nice touch, actually. Definitely a Tripel, but the 9% is well hidden. Given that this is Pike’s only Belgian (as far as I know...) I’m impressed. Price is reasonable @ $4.99 for 22 oz.

(Tap) nice looking beer. Really nice Belgian spice from the yeast. Above average tripel.

Spiced, coriander-touched aroma. Hazy appearance, mostly copper with thin head. Taste is boozy, strong, totally bananas. Palate wraps reasonably thin. Decent beer, nothing like a quality Belgian tripel but it’ll do.

Tried it today, Total wine had it in stock! Have to say I'm pleased! Excellent taste, smooth finish. They should make it more easily available!

decaturstevo (5215) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - OCT 22, 2014
Deep yellow pour with creamy white head and lace. Aroma is sweet malt with a touch of rock candy. Flavor is very sweet malt, rock candy, a very light bitter with a touch of abv warmth. Medium body with good carbonation. very nice @ bp

Westmeister (1839) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Honestly bought due to price point/abv combo. Scent is more mineral than I would want with some of the ripe fruits and sweet caramel. Taste shows more bright ripe fruits, quite sweet, not too shabby. Almost a bit adjuncty to be a top tier tripel.

slowrunner77 (6114) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 6, 2014
"a pretty unassuming trippel. as the tandem was pretty good, i was looking forward to this, but the aroma, while of the usual stuff, is pretty weak, as is the body for a stronger beer. the flavor was average at best."

Padron4KM (569) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - OCT 5, 2014
22 oz bomber.
Cloudy dark golden with a tight but rapidly dissipating head. Active carbonation, light lacing.
Pale malt in the aroma, as well as some light banana, and some bubblegum.
Flavor is sweet up front, candi sugar, fruit, yeast, followed by hoppy bitterness in the middle, and a sweet finish.
A little too sweet for my liking in a trippel,

liquidhedonism (185) - Beaverton, Oregon, USA - OCT 2, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2014 22 oz bottle from Fred Meyer in Hillsboro, OR. Aroma has a strong clove presence, with some hints of banana and wet grass. Mouthfeel is crisp and a bit sweet throughout, with a bitter and somewhat sour finish. There are a lot of strong flavors going on here, including a potent Belgian skunkiness, but I am just not a big fan of any of them.

julesjis (151) - Oregon, USA - OCT 2, 2014
Poured from a 22. Aroma and first taste are pretty much your standard Tripel. Has a nice banana/clove sweet flavor to it. Mouth feel is the typical Triple cream. Nice beer.
