Poured into a snifter. Pours golden orange with little head. Smells of nice deep raisins and grapes, very nice. Tastes of fruit, especially grapes, and nice grain backbone. Beer is full bodied but goes down very easy, very nice light carbonation. Overall a very good beer.

Poured into a tulip glass from a 22oz. bottle. It looks like pretty much every other triple. A golden glow with good light penetration. Decent head and carbonation. It has a very traditional triple smell. Nothing special, but still good. Flavor is where this really comes through. I was expecting more of a bite, but the pepper flavor was perfectly balanced with the sweetness of this brew. I have no idea what a green peppercorn tastes like, it tastes like every black or pink one I've had. I would have called this fresh peppercorn, because that's where it really wins. It has a light hint of fresh pepper, not that stale black crap on your table. Overall a very cool triple that was adventurous and pulled it off by adding a hint of peppercorn, not so much it kills the triple. Would definitely buy again.

Bottle from Food and Friends in Philly.
Pours a brilliantly clear light golden color with a huge fluffy white head that slowly dissipates to a cap on top. Smells of pepper mostly, with hints on yeasty esters and a touch of sweet honey like malt. The flavor is heavy on the pepper with a sweet bready honey like malt flavor and a bit of spicy yeasty phenols to round it all out. Medium body with a moderate to high level of carbonation and a sweet slick bubbly mouthfeel. Nice beer I've been wanting to try this forever. Its very heavy on the pepper, I felt that a bit more sweetness might have helped to counter that a bit but it was good as is.

Body is clear gold with a thick foamy head. Pretty decent retention and lacing.

Nose is biscuity malt, a waft of green peppercorn that creates a bit of peppery taste on the tongue and throat, along with banana and candi sugar sweetness.

Tastes of all these things. The green peppercorn is strong yet melds well with the yeast and sugar. The alcohol provides some additional peppery kick.

Body is medium, has a light, refreshing mouthfeel.

A very decent triple, rather strong in taste and alcohol but true to the Belgian style.

Caged and corked 750 poured into a Chimay goblet.

Appearance: Surprisingly very clear pale yellow. Thick 3/4" white head. Better thn average retention and amazing lacing down all sides of my glass. Quite a nice looking beer.

Aroma: Spicy, peppercorn, clove, light fruit, banana, biscuity malt.

Taste: Wow, the star of the show is the green peppercorn. Constant and distinct but it never seems over done. It meshes well with the lighter traditional flavors of a tripel. There is an underlying spice character and clove with some light tropical fruitiness and some mild booziness. Interesting and fantastic. works weel.

Mouthfeel: Very smooth drinking given the ABV. Oncer again. Plenty of flavors, but not overwhelming. Not something you'd drink everyday, but it comes with a nice spicy and medium body that continues to the finish. The peppercorns being a constant presence from start to finish.

750ml into wide mouth glass. Let me start by saying this was THE hardest cork I've ever met... Forced me to use a wine opener!

Pours w/short white head over an extremely clear and bright golden body. Visible carbonation. Some lacing.

Faint aromas... Could've used more. Bready, with some rubbery phenols.

Flavors contain a fairly high hop bitterness (for the style), followed by the gym sneakers, and just a taste of tropical fruit, which is quickly overtaken by a thick lime paste. Strange, but interesting.

Mouthfeel is pretty light, given the 9%. Strong carbonation makes it pretty prickly - maybe a touch too much.

Had this on draft last week and had to pick up a bottle. It's a fun one, and really well done. Just don't expect traditional Belgian Tripel ... But maybe that's what they're going for.

Pulled out from the cellar at meridian pint outside of DC

The beer pours an initially clear slightly golden yellow (more straw than golden) with a generous amount of sticky white head. Towards the bottom of the bottle, the thin yeast sediment gets stirred up and flocculates into my glass. The nose is initially a subtle honey-herbal peppercorn that becomes down-right potent green peppercorns as it's given a chance to warm. The taste is a unique blend of the sweet tripel base followed by a herbal/bitter peppercorn aftertaste. It deliciously pairs with my meal. The mouthfeel is as expected - a bit of sweetness/booze, light/medium bodied carried by an intensely flavorful peppercorn bite. Honestly, I wasn't a fan of this beer initially (when it was cold) because the bitterness came off weird/unappealing, but everything smoothed out in due time. This beer is damn good and completely worth seeking out if you enjoyed CBC's Sgt. Pepper.
