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.

I did not expect to like this beer as I am not a fan of peppers in beer. The green peppercorn put a very nice flavor along with the belgian yeast. It gave it a rye quality but much more vegetal. Very nice.

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.

A - a towering, massive foamy head over top of a finely bubbled clear yellow. This looks nice!
S - light yeasty/spicy tripel ester smell with a bit of peppercorn aroma. A mild balanced smell with nothing out of proportion or too strong.
T - foamy head by itself has a peppery bite. Actual ale is much more balanced with the pepper showing but not overwhelming the underlying solid tripel character. A bit of sweet balances the spicy quite well.
M - crisply/sharply carbonated medium bodied verging towards the lighter side with a slight drying finish. Almost saison like in a very good way.
D - quite easy going refreshing tripel with everything well balanced.
Overall a fine tripel with a little pepper to add a zing.
Would/will have again and highly recommend to tripel fans.

This was the forth beer we started with at a beer-tasting at my place.

A –Yellow/ fluid but still different than any other beer color I ever laid eyes on, with a nice head.

S – Smell of fresh hop with pepper.

T – There is definitely green pepper in this beer but the beer taste is beautiful fresh and balanced. Is there alcohol in this beer?

M – Very nice, a bubble explosion in your mouth.

O – What a fantastic different beer, a league of its own.

This has a wonderful look and a unique yet familiar aroma. While the usual suspects are there in full force (like candied sugar, orange, and grass), peppercorns are particularly assertive. The latter facet alone helps it stand out from the pack, but it's still a pleasant and well executed nose. Same with the flavor profile: familiar, but the peppercorns also make it distinctly spicy. Notes of lemon, orange, candied sugar, and wheat help round it out. This succeeds because it fulfills the main criteria expected from the style: it's insanely smooth and balanced for the gravity. This drinks like it's 5%. It has a medium-thick body and a prickly texture, but again...this is 5%. I refused to be convinced otherwise. Carbonation is medium. It's fairly priced, in six pack cans, and smooth as fuck...in other words, a good way to have a great time - or end up butt naked, smeared in BBQ sauce, and wearing a traffic cone as a hat. Whatever, it's really tasty.

3.8/5: A damn fine tripel in an approachable package
