Belgian Pale Ale Beer Reviews

Spencer Trappist Ale
Spencer Trappist Ale is a Belgian style Pale Ale, 6.5% ABV. Brewed by The Monks of St. Joseph’s Abbey. Spencer is the first, and currently only certified Trappist beer made in the USA. The beer is a hazy and cloudy orange color, some bits of yeast floating in my glass, […]

Three Taverns Single Intent
Three Taverns Single Intent is a Belgian style Pale Ale, 5% ABV. Not a style you see very often, this is brewed in the tradition of the Belgian Single, a beer normally brewed by Trappist monks for their own consumption. The look is of a golden straw color, rather clear […]

Bell’s Mercury The Winged Messenger
Bell’s Mercury The Winged Messenger is a Belgian Pale Ale that is a part of the Planet Series. Bottled on 12/04/14, thanks to Raymond for the bottle! This looks nice enough with a slightly cloudy golden yellow. The aroma on this seems a little off, a lot of grain and […]

Evil Twin Joey Pepper
Evil Twin Joey Pepper is a Belgian Pale Ale that is actually a collaboration with Sante Adairius Rustic Ales. This is easily one of the boldest Belgian Pale Ale I’ve had. I was expecting something more peppery in the sense of black pepper, but the spices in this are not that specific. […]

Ommegang Hop House
Ommegang Hop House is a Belgian Pale Ale. This is a tasty new addition to the Ommegang family of beers. First thing I notice is the nice active carbonation and light golden color. The taste is bready, slightly grainy, and hoppy with lots of bitterness on the finish. The Belgian yeast […]

Affligem Blond
Affligem Blond is a Belgian Pale Ale. I’m surprised by the 7% ABV on this, about as high as you can go before it becomes a “Strong” Pale Ale. Not exactly sessionable but well worth the price of admission! This is really light and easy to drink, but still has a […]

Stillwater Artisanal Beer Table Table Beer 2012
Stillwater Artisanal Beer Table Table Beer is a Belgian style Pale Ale. Thanks to Kristian for hooking me up with a bottle of this! Not the kind of beer I would think to age, but I have to say it seems the 2012 vintage has held up very well. The beer […]

Orval Trappist Ale
Orval Trappist Ale is a Belgian Pale Ale. This was bottled on 5/20/2011, opened on 5/20/2013, Best by date is 5/20/2016. Aged exactly 2 years. I have never had this before and I honestly did not intend to age it this long, but that little bowling pin like bottle just got […]

The Lost Abbey Saint’s Devotion
The Lost Abbey Saint’s Devotion is a Belgian Pale Ale, which is their Devotion Ale bottle conditioned with brettanomyces. This is the 2013 Vintage coming in at a clever 6.66% ABV. I am noticing the brett right away with a nice bit of mild funkiness and some mild peppery spiciness. The […]

Westbrook Brett & No Mices
Westbrook Brett & No Mices is a Belgain Style Pale Ale brewed with Brettanomyces.  It is then aged in red wine barrels for 10 months. A hybrid Belgian and American Wild Ale, the beer is funky and slightly sour/tart to start. I wouldn’t call this a true sour, but you get […]
