First of all, this is one of the highest "Look" ratings I've ever given. Between the head that is far too legit to ever consider quitting, to the multitudinous-but-reasonable little yeasty floaters, this is clearly a beer that means business. Otherwise, this is a delicious beer that brushes up gently against the rear end of greatness in a mischievous yet flirtatious way, as if to say, "Hey babe, I know I'm not in your league, but I'm so self assured that I'm gonna pretend I am anyway in hopes that you fall for it."
The flavor is sweet and malty with little in the way of detectable hops, but rather a sweet, light malty flavor (fits the light-for-a-tripel body) and a cut grass nose. Seriously, if someone took some unripe green peppercorns and made a tea with all the other weed clippings they got during their gardening session, and then added some cane sugar plus some cheap malt liquor to bump up the flavor, and then used a magic spell to make it taste way better than I just described it, that would be this beer.
Totally worth going after, this is a tasty beer that can pair well with most vegetable or light entree dishes, and is fairly unique, that last part coming from a guy who is probs totes jaded from the ton of beer he drinks. Yeah, I said probs totes. One recommendation - split this with a friend if you want to enjoy it all. Otherwise, you will get halfway through the 750 and your tastebuds will be so tired of it, they will just stop registering it at all.

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.

The absolute best of Brewer's Art, and that's saying something since they have some really top notch beers.
Perfectly balanced. Very slightly sweet, rich with a wonderful peppery finish that never overwhelms. You could drink this for hours, but watch out! there's a reason they serve you a 6 oz portion at the restaurant.
