Never got a chance to try this when i was at The Brewers Art several years ago. Glad to be able to find it.
This is a true tripel. Lots of bready character with a full body and the pepper is definitely there. It pops in on the back side of the ride and lingers and lingers, but doesnt seem to overpower the beer at all. At least for me.
If you're used to heavier beers, the pepper will probably seem more subtle. If you're still getting used to bigger beers, the pepper might bother you a bit.
Overall, I vote that this is an excellent tripel. There are many American breweries making belgian style ales, but few pulling them off to this level.

Pour is lightly pale golden yellow with a bubbly tan head. The nose is nice, yeast up front with a light pepper behind it and some nice lemon, very juicy,with a solid citrus orange hop in back. The taste is much more hoppy and sweet. Yeast is still pronounced in front, great peppery spice behind but the hops are very syrupy and juicy and don't transition well. Light lemon zest then orange citrus and a blast of tangerine with a moderate bitterness in the finish. Creamy medium body with a soft feel and solid level of carbonation offering a semi dry finish.

Beige head. Color haze vibrant gold.
Aroma: peppercorn up front. Very dominating. A lot of spice. Yeast.
Taste: peppercorn again up front backed up with a lot of spice. Almost reminds me of mint. Yeasty and bready. Very odd.
Moutheel: dry and spiced. Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Ends spiced.
Overall, very unique but not something I want a lot of. Not too true to the style.

750 mL bottle courtesy of lackenhauser pours a very hazed, light gold color with a massive cap of white head. Not a gusher, but the cork popped with mad force!
Ohhhh, the tripel yeastiness here smells terrific and very Belgian. The peppercorn is light, but definitely there and adds a nice zest to it. It reeks of apricots, green grapes and clean tropical alcohol...all things I have noticed in the best of tripels.
Yea...its damn good! The rotting fruit is off the hook with a major blast of alcohol and sweet, sugary grain. The peppercorn stays mostly in the background, and I might not even have noticed it blind. The mouthfeel is perfect...creamy is almost not a good enough descriptor. Not too sweet and not thin at all...very nice. This is my first Brewer’s Art beer and I am very impressed. Authentic, flavorful, yeasty and delicious. Peppercorns are more noticeable when warm and also upon burping. Excellent beer, would seek out again, for sure.

Enjoyed this 750ml caged and corked bottle out of a large snifter glass.
A: Pours a very hazy golden hue with a huge, fizzy, white, 3-finger head that quickly dissipates leaving no trail down the glass and ending in a wispy lace.
S: Very fruity aroma – hints of bananas, pineapple, and mango
T: Sharp tangy flavor with lots of fruits and yeast. There is a nice zip to this brew.
M: Mildly strong and a little boozy. Medium body and high carbonation.
O: Awesome Belgian Tripel – I was disappointed they didn’t have it on tap when I was there last – but the bottle was just as good.

750 bottle picked up at state line liquor in Maryland. Poured into a wine glass
A: faint yellow/orange color. Nice fluffy head that lasts. Some good lacing.
S: the peppercorn comes through in the smell. Some yeast, but not a lot else.
T: get bubble gum and candi sugar. Some apple and pear and a nice alcohol finish.
M: on the creamier side for a tripel.
A nice beer. I would definitely have it again. Not mind blowing, but a good American tripel.

hazy golden color with a light head of white that sat on top for only a few moments before settling down to reveal a bare head. Aroma is light, pears, figs, light spices and grainy notes, again nothing shocking or really coming out at me. Warming brings a hint of grapeskin. Taste was soft, mellow, full of grain and light yeast, a hint of pears and apples in the back, but just did not have a punch or a full enough profile for me to really fall for it. Each sip seemed lighter then the one before
