If you like pepper and you like Belgians this is the ultimate! I just wish it was obtainable in more areas. I have only seen it in big bottles at Whole Foods and a few bars in Mid-Atlantic. Brewers Art beers are all very good and worth the trip to an out of the way place in Baltimore.

Had on tap at Lures in a pint
A-Pours a clear gold with a one finger white head that dissipates to the edges.
S-Aroma has a nice light fruit note with a good amount of sweet grains a hint of pepper and clove.
T-Flavor starts with sweet grains and light fruits with a decent amount of grass and grain in the finish.
M-Medium body with a moderate to high level of carbonation and a sweet slick bubbly mouthfeel.
O-Very drinkable despite the ABV. Way to go Brewers Art job well done!

Poured from a corked & caged 750 mL bottle into a matchy-matchy Brewer's Art goblet. Moderate hand. Dated 1/9/15.
A: Hazy, golden yellow body with 1 finger of mostly white head. Ok retention. Very light lacing. A bit dull, but a nice hue.
S: Pungent green (as well as white, black) pepper intermingled with Belgian yeast. Lighter fruit notes, exhibiting a somewhat indistinct muddling of mango, apple, pear, peach. Spice, specifically coriander, makes an appearance. Faint straw, grass. Floral element.
T: Spicy with assertive peppercorn up front. Slowly yields to a balancing, noble hop-type bitterness and a dry finish. Nice lingering essence of pepper with fruity undertones in the aftertaste. Slightly boozy, but suits the beer well.
M: Moderate carbonation. A slight prickliness actually heightens the pepper notes. Moderate body.
O: Full disclosure: I thoroughly enjoy pepper flavors and this beer sits solidly in my wheelhouse. So admittedly, my scores might be somewhat inflated. The tripel/blonde backbone is good enough, but the peppercorns really shine on this one. I've had this quite a few times before and hope to have it many more times in the future.

3.9/5 rDev -4.4%
Appearance: Cloudy, light orange.
Smell: not really noticeable with the glasses the brewer served in. Some grape.
Taste. Very light grape, mellon maybe. Honey. Peppercorn, alcohol aftertaste. Slight burn.
This is really good. It's certainly not in the particulars, but the total experience is very enjoyable. It's smooth at first, with a bite at the end. I would get this again.
Oddly, the bottle states it's a blonde ale.and it's closer to that than tripel. I will say this, of you let warm, the grape smell and taste really comes out. However, it is surprising much much better cold.
