ACHops' rating

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 16/20
ACHops (1584) - 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.

12-ounce bottle pours mostly clear golden with small white head and lacing. Aroma: clove, banana, honey, lemon. Flavor: sweet malt, honey, banana, bubblegum, yeast, white pepper -- with a lingering sweet caramelized banana. Mouthfeel: full-bodied, rich. Similar in taste to Golden Monkey by Victory Brewing in Pennsylvania, yet with additional sweetness (too much for me for this style).

Sampler 8/26/16 (Pike Brewery-SEA)-Pours hazy golden with a small head. Aroma of yeast, fruit, and malt. Taste of the same with some sweetness. This medium to full bodied brew was a surprise as I was not expecting much for this style.

Taster at brewpub. Ugh. Thick, sweet, cloying. Not nice. Baked beans in there somewhere. Some breweries shouldn’t bother trying Belgian. Stick to the IPA please.

hershiser2 (3236) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - DEC 10, 2016
Bomber from Total Wine, Gainesville. Pours hazy golden with an inch of white head. Aroma of grasses, some fruit, yeast, lager. Flavor is glue, yeast, light fruitiness, grass. Tastes more like a really strong lager to me.

dlovell2 (2134) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 30, 2016
Pours cloudy golden with a white head. Aroma is fruity malt with spicy yeast. Flavor is sweet fruity malt with some citrus. Finishes citrus with peppery yeast spiciness.

On tap at Pike Brewing. Not my favourite style but a well made example with a restrained yeast spice flavour.

A great glass of Tripel. The Cannery Row enjoys this great Belgian Ale tasting beer from Fred Meyer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bulldogops (2490) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 20, 2016
Rating #1910 - 2015.09.24 - #CraftTakesSeattle Beer 9 - Flight at taproom. Pour is pretty standard, hazy golden orange with a bubbly white head. Aroma is belgie yeast, orange peel. Mouthfeel is crisp, medium-heavy alcohol character, medium carbonation. Decent balance, alcohol isn’t confrontational, nice sweet notes linger into finish.

thorongil2 (3074) - , Ontario, CANADA - AUG 13, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2016 (tap) clear bright yellow colour with a small white head, aroma of lilies, creamy palate, balanced flavour with a long light bitter finish

Aquilo (651) - Berkeley, California, USA - JUL 10, 2016
Clear golden color with a thin head. Sweet, fruity aroma with apricot. Mild, slightly bitter flavor with some residual sweetness and a floral aftertaste. Very good.
