From local Brussels/Ixelles grocery store, part of Tripel tasting, poured into the only appropriate glass I have (chalice) in my rented apartment.

Nearly two fingers white head, small bubbles, pretty fast dissipation. Fruity nose, sweet, peaches, green apple with light coriander aroma in the finish. The pepper notes are a bit more pronounced in the taste, pushing the fruitiness aside. Full mouthfeel, average effervescence, lingering coriander in the finish. A pretty full bodied and spicy variation on the style, certainly unique in my experience. Worth a try for fans of the style.
