ClarkVV (6113) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 10, 2008
Draught chalice at Redbones on 11/15/07
Lightly hazed golden with some amber highlights. One finger of dense white head that is very well-retained and laces profusely down the glass.
Wasn’t sure what to expect from this mostly American style brewer, was envisioning too much yeast, banana, phenols, etc...but the aroma is fairly reserved, showing off light apricots and candied orange, moderate amounts of vanilla and honey sugars and a tinge of pineapple on the finish. Some alcohol warmth, true to style, dries out the finish. Hops are minimal and show no trace of high alpha acids. A lightly sweaty, cedary almost, note from the yeast adds some Belgian flair. No flaws. Not terribly complex, and not incredibly "Belgian", but well done.
Clean and well-presented are the pale malts, with honey and lightly crisp specialty malts on the finish. Banana is low as is the yeast dullness, while some peach and apricot mix with alcohol esters to give more dryness on the finish. A bit astringent by the end of the glass, on account of the alcohol and malt breadiness, but still enjoyable. No flaws. Moderate carbonation and a fluffy, soft texture (with grainiess on the end).

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.

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 (2362) - 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.

Tap at Pike. Clear yellow gold pour with a white head. Yeast and esters on the aroma. Slick medium palate. Maybe a bit too sweet. Decent.

An okay tripel. The Belgian yeast dominates, lending it some slightly off balance spicyness. Tried with Josh at the brewery in 2016.
