Brewer's Art Green Peppercorn Tripel has a cloudy orange colour and soapy, 15 mm head that really lasts. It has good carbonation too. The spell is yeasty but there is also the definite smell of spicy, grassy peppercorns. The Belgian yeast is very noticeable, like most good triple's but with a little more grassiness. Cardamon flavour dominates the finish. This beer is frothy in texture but it's a bit too much like soda for my liking. Overall, an interesting beer but not one I would want to drink that much of. Too much grass and spice for my palate.

Received from AleWatcher in the Blind BIF #4. 750 ml corked bottle, poured into my Duvel tulip.

Pours a hazy deep golden color with an egg shell head of over three fingers. Good mix of small and medium-sized bubbles. Suggestion of lacing to come.

Aromas of black pepper spice. Pepper smells heavy-handed, not subtle. Also some lemon zest, citrus.

Flavor of citrus, funky yeast, and black pepper spice. Light bitterness. Hot alcohol. Minerally. Pepper is really overpowering everything else. Short finish, you guessed it, pepper.

Mouthfeel is slightly creamy, good level of carbonation. Alcohol warmth.

Good drinkability overall, nice experiment, not sure I'd want to try this again.

Yummy stuff. Pours light golden, cloudy colour. Mild peppercorn and spice aroma. Above average mouthfeel. The peppercorn is the star, but it is so drinkable, and well supported by the yeast and malting. I easily finished the bomber, slight lemon. A controlled spicyness. Thanks again M.-P.

Poured from a 750ml bottle into my DFH Chalice...

Appearance: The beer pours a slightly cloudy, light golden color with about 2 inches worth of thick, craggy head. Retention is pretty good, and the lacing the thick and soapy with a little schtick.

Smell: Fruity, nice Belgian yeast sort of quality, and some great peppercorn bite. Nothing too overwhelming, everything blends together quite nicely.

Taste: Not as fruity as the nose would indicate, the Belgian yeast quality shines through nicely, and the pepper is more pronounced than I thought it would be. A very interesting take on the style.

Mouthfeel: Crisp medium body, but perhaps a little too carbonated. It gets better as is sits, so it's not too bad.

Drinkability: A tasty brew I have enjoyed several times before, and will continue to enjoy. Very drinkable with a nice pepper bite. Definitely recommend.

Big thanks to ShogoKawada - wanted to try this for a while! Poured from a 750mL caged-and-corked bottle into my Bruery tulip.

Gold liquid, very lightly hazy and shot through with streaming bubbles whch support the two fingers of rocky ivory merengue. Thick soft soapy lacing, no legs.

Mouth-watering yeast aroma with biscuits, honey, and a floral note (or maybe rosewater?) in the nose.

Sweet malty palate entry, with the subtle but distinctive green peppercorn flavor emerging mid-palate. Moderately bitter (noble?) hops and some apricot-like notes from the alcohol leading into the finish which seems to alternate back and forth between sweet and dry with some spicy astringency throughout.

Just barely medium-bodied, quite effervescent (but not overcarbonated); warming but not hot; leaves your gums humming from the light pepper notes.

Hard to put the glass down, this is very drinkable for the ABV, and is actually one of the better domestic examples of the style I've tried.

a: This was a bright, clear, golden honey color. It poured with a massive fizzy head that wouldn't quit slowly growing.

s: Sweet pear and honey aromas that have a floral quality dominate. This was gently warm and there was a hint of pepper whose color I could not discern.

t: Sweet honey up front is quickly dried somewhat by flowery, fruity warmth in the middle. The finish is a peppery clove spice flavor.

m: A tale of two beers. This was undrinkably effervescent for a good ten minutes. I couldn't get past the head to drink it. It was perfect for a short while before becoming too still.

d: As the carbonation faded, the sweetness asserted itself and I enjoyed this less at that point. Still, I very much enjoyed it.

A - Hazy light orange copper color with a big, fluffy, whitish, long lasting head. Lots of lacing left throughout.

S - Spicy peppercorns, sweet pils malts, with a big fruity estery character. Light alcohol is pleasant.

F/M - Mostly just peppercorns up front, with a sweet pils malt and fruity ester profile struggling to make its way to the front. The flavors start and finish with peppercorns. Moderate bitterness with a dry finish. Medium bodied with moderately high carbonation. Lingering (you guessed it) peppercorn flavor.

D - Wow. Spicy peppercorns are way overpowering and dominate every aspect of this beer, making it quite a challenge to finish the glass. Otherwise, dry and a little bit refreshing.

750 mL corked and caged bottle picked up at the Brewer's Art, Baltimore, MD. A chickenscratch-ed "GPT" is written in purple (or faded black) sharpie on the top of the gold cage. Poured in to a tulip.

Appearance: Pours a crisp and bright but nonetheless slightly hazed golden, a very pretty color really, sort of one shade darker and less radiant than true gold and one shade lighter and more radiant than goldenrod ... let's call it a gamboge. The slight opacity can't hide tons of bustling effervescence, large bubbled in that sort of rustic, small brewery sense, zipping upwards from dozens of nucleation sites to the cap. The crown itself must surely be sustained by this massive influx of carbonation, because its initial two fingers of elevation faded to a more modest three-quarters height after an initial round of surging, fizzy excitement, though I think I like the end result - a subtle, creamy, whipped-looking off white head - much better.

Aroma: An amazingly pungent nose. Sweet floral notes are strong, bright, warming, and welcoming, mingling beautifully with faint tripel-esque fruits - mainly tropical and citrus, with hints of mango, peach, nectarine, orange, and pineapple - and a lightly earthy spiciness that is decidedly peppercorn in nature. My easiest peppercorn association - that of freshly cracked white and pink peppercorns on a pan-seared steak - is coming on full force here.

Taste: A little less robust than the nose, but still very nice. First, it's relatively dry - strongly crackery, honey-like in the spicyness, with hints of fruit sugar - but on the whole, very dry. The dryness is accentuated by the undeniably peppercorn-y notes that permeate the body of the flavor profile, particularly as it warms. It's spicy, a little prickly, very fresh and herbal, mingling nicely with some definite yeasty spicy phenols. The fruity notes - dry peaches and apricot - are detracted from ever so slightly by a slightly astringent note in the background, as well as a few dashes of yeasty nuttiness.

Mouthfeel: Bubbly, large, bright, and soft - after about 3 minutes of being a little too rough and eruptive to be perfect, it settles down in to the perfect Belgian mouth, pillowy and with the ideal amount of lift. What a fantastic feeling beer.

Drinkability: What an excellent beer, and a truly pleasant surprise. At 9.2%, the bottle was just about perfect for me, but I nursed it the whole night so I can't complain too much about its alcoholic intensity. I just loved the interplay between the notes though, the rustic roughness of it all, the authenticity, and the quality of the craftsmanship. Highly recommended.

750ml bottle poured into my Darkness glass...Not quite a gusher but a big pop with a slow crawl. Huge carbonation as I'm only able to pour about three ounces of beer and I get about nine fingers of head. The head is nice, pretty and fluffy tope; sick lacing. The beer is a nice honey gold. A little less head would have been nice, but not sure how this could look any better...The aroma is a bit much for me as its dominated by pepper, of the black variety, not sure I or anyone could tell the difference of a green peppercorn, but it sounds cooler, right? Trying desperately to pull anything else out but the pepper and I can't! Not the note that should be dominating your beer. I actually like the pepper of it, just too much, needs to be 1/10th of that level...The taste tones down the pepper on the front and gives off some nice floral and honey notes that I quite enjoy. However 2/3's of the way through the pepper makes a come back, especially on the swallow. Still too much for me, but an interesting twist. As I drink it more and it warms slightly better. Again not bad just too much pepper.

Top five pepper beer I've had, but needs more restraint before its entirely drinkable.

Big thanks to beandip for hooking me up with this long-sought brew. It is a good one!

A - The beer pours a glowing golden-orange with a voluminous white head, collapsing slowly into delicate yet plentiful lace. It is one of the few times I have seen a brew that was on-par with Duvel in the appearance department.

S - Initially, it is bready and spicy and somewhat alcoholic, just like a Tripel should be. As it airs out, the spiciness takes on the specific notes of green peppercorn, and it seems to suggest a peppery-spicy-herbal-green hoppiness, too.

T - This tastes amazing. It is just delicious, delectable and perfectly balanced for this style, or any style. The spiciness is immediately apparent, though green peppercorn is not readily discernible; it is more like a highly nuanced take on the traditional Belgian Tripel spiciness. Breadiness and alcohol give way to herbal and golden fruity notes as it airs out, there is a tremendous sense of sweet-dry balance, obvious mineral pristine-ness, grassy-leafy bitterness and eventually the appearance of green peppercorn. The booze is not trying to hide, nor should it, as it plays a role in flavor enhancement throughout the brew. This is really a phenomenal take on the Tripel, it utilizes or improves upon all of the key elements for the style.

M - Good and bright, but lacking the expansive creaminess of an authentic Belgian.

D - I can't stress how important it was that I poured this brew carefully into a decanting vessel after 24+ hours of undisturbed upright refrigerated storage. This brew is very sedimentary, and the particulates are particularly perturbing in this case. So it is essential: Do not pour a cloudy brew with this one!

Thanks to beandip for this bomber that's been resting in the fridge, blocking others of its kind from entering the rotation, for some time. My wife feared the weirdness.

Pours a clear, Belgian yellow with a goose-down pillow of white on top. The smell would make me recoil if I wasn't sitting down...holy crap. I'm not sure what happened to the green peppercorns in the liquifying process, but it doesn't smell good. Like something stale. Almost urine, but not quite. Maybe cat urine. Really, really bad. Makes me afraid.

Green Peppercorn Tripel tastes a lot better than it smells, thank Ares. The green peppercorns are rampant. Running wild. In packs over the plains. The tripel is underneath, but it's overwhelmed quickly. There might be some pepper, or green apple peel, or something else, but who would know. The peppercorns block out the sun & suck the oxygen out of the room.

Not a bad beer, but really frickin' weird one. And the smell. Bad smell. The rest of the beer is actually pretty good, but having it waft up the nasal passages during each swill definitely detracts from the experience.

EDIT: OK, as my wife turned up her nose & I'm 2/3 of the way through the bomber, this has grown on me a bit, especially in the drinkability department. Bumpin' it up!

750 ml bottle split and poured into a Bruery tulip. O.G. 18.6 Plato, 9.2% ABV, By 4/1/12.

Thanks to Chaney for this bottle in the awesome (Pumpkin Ale) box he sent my way!

A - Slightly hazy bright golden yellow with a billowing white head. Firm and well-retained, the white foam left some thick lace on the glass. The remainder of the bottle after sharing it is chock-full of sediment.

S - A little skunky to start with, it moves into a light candi sugar sweetness with the Belgian yeast aroma in tow. The peppercorns come out with a nice spicy aroma that blends with the spicy esters very well.

T - Bright and crisp with a heavy lingering sweetness, it's got lots of crystal malts and a shit-ton of candi sugar. Small hints of bananas and earthy clay comes out. The peppercorn is nice in this one!

M - Smooth and crisp initially with a medium body and a rich sweetness to the finish. Nice soft spice to the finish that balances the sweetness well. A little bit of the alcohol comes through retro-nasally.

D - Very drinkable for a tripe.l, it gets better as you sip it and the peppercorn is spectacular as an addition to the spicy tripel. A very nice brew! Thanks Chaney!

Review from BeerAdvocate magazine Vol. II Issue X:

Pepper plant 101, green peppercorns are simply the unripened peppercorns from the pepper plant. The liveliest of the bunch when it comes to head size and retention, as a massive dollop of meringue-like head forms from a normal pouring and does not want to leave. Lightly hazed, pale golden hue. A spicy note forms both the alcohol and peppercorn in the nose, a bit of a fresh veggie, peach juice and yeast twang as well. Deep smoothness on the palate, moderately sized body. Spicy right from the start, but always mellow and never over the top. Complexities reach new heights with suggestions of evergreen, peach orchard and raw honey. Malt lays down a light biscuity base with a light bready finish. Hops pair up very well with the green peppercorn and do more than just balance; spiciness eventually hooks up with the alcohol, which has its own pepper tone and fruity warmth. Finishes a little juicy and mildly spicy, a pleasant ending.

Controlled chaos is the best way to describe this beer. Extreme beer at its best. It's not over the top, but captures a traditional style and adds a very interesting twist to it. Easy enough to drink on its own, as the alcohol is very deceiving, but we're sure that there is a plethora of foods to pair with this beer too.

Thanks to thirdeye11 for sharing this bottle. A very interesting sounding beer.

The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. It looks about like a tripel should. The flavor is heavy on the pepper with some citrus notes. It is not a black pepper flavor, but it is more similar to white pepper. Judging by the name, I guess green pepper is similar to white pepper. The flavor is pepper, flowers, wheat, alcohol and citrus. Very nice. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

750ml bottle. Pours with a massive white foamy head. Golden honey in color with a cloudy appearance. Leaves a nice amount of lacing. Really like the unique taste of this tripel, I assume it's the use of peppercorns as I don't think I've had another beer with them present. Definitely spicy, but there is no overbearing heat to the spice. Strong bready yeast profile with a nice touch of herb and grass. I'm glad I have this local.

Shared this with some loved ones earlier in the day.

Pours with a white wine look, with a nice bubbly head. Smell of the peppercorn and general spicyness was nice. Starts with a kick and ends with one, but is smooth through the middle. More fizzy than creamy, a little champagne feel. Nice to sip and share.

I do love me some peppercorn beers. This one has peppercorn written all over it. The nose has some Belgian yeast banana-y esters, more so than the taste. Sweet malt and banana flavors are balanced by peppery spice and alcohol. In the end, it's over-carbonated and it needs food, but if you like peppercorn, and weird beers, it's worth a try.

Trying this one thanks to beandip and shared with Central New England BA Meetup.

A: Belgian style fluffy 2 finger head that fades like a big mess all over the place. Clear golden yellow color.

N: Belgian tripel malts, slight sweet and light booze with some spicy pepper aromas. Green pepper with peppercorns, a little juicy fruits and Belgian yeast with a slight boozy aroma. Pretty Berlinerweisse like, with some dry fruits and grassy hop aromas.

T: Belgian tripel like, with spicy peppercorns and green pepper. Lots of spices start on the flavor but fade as the taste goes on, pretty dry but slight sweetness, juicy fruits and Belgian yeast, a little hear and a slight grassy pale hops.

M: Lighter body loaded with carbonation, even a little creamy.

F: Dry with some lingering malts, a little yeasty and fruit flavors linger, with a touch of booze. A little pale grassy hop flavor with touch of bitterness. Most of the pepper is gone but a spicy heat seems to come out on the finish, like chewing on peppercorn.

Received in a trade from Lunch.

Consumed 4/20/2010 - reviewed from notes.

Pours a hazy golden color with a huge billowy head. The bubbles look loose, and leave a nice little web of lace on the glass. A nice looking beer. The smell brings to mind apple peels and bready yeast, with a hint of grass and spice. The apple peel smell dominates. I'm also not sure of exactly what a green peppercorn tastes or smells like - so I'm not sure if I can spot it well. The taste is initially sweet and malty, a little dusty from the yeast, and tart with some notes of apple. There's alittle spice and burn as you swallow, that almost makes me want to sneeze. The body is a nice medium-full, with quite lively carbonation. Really despite the way it finishes bone dry, it has a nice thickness to it. It's a pretty nice beer, pretty strong though, I had to give up the last half of it so I wouldn't go too far, but it's a good tripel, with a very interesting level of spice.

Pours a cloudy yellow with a ton of head that trys to overflow my glass. The aroma is slightly spicy and stings my nostrils a little bit as I inhale. The taste is hard to describe. Slightly peppery to be sure, but the taste feels almost heavier on my tongue after I swallow. I think the beer also tastes slightly salty, like I need to wash it down with a glass of water. THe beer is extremely drinkable for something so strong. It's a little odd for a tripel, but one of my favorites in the style.

Pours an opaque golden with a hazy tint- lots of bleached head.
Smell is spiced lightly- a solid tripel smell-malts with a beery quality.
Taste is solid- belgian yeasts begin into a nice spice- correander.
Finish is wettish- a tongue paralizing spiced after-taste.
Drinks very smoothly- 9.2 is very solid with no hang ups even with the spice.

A - Slightly hazy light gold. The head was tremendous and almost entirely filled the first glass I poured.

S - ....Strange. The green peppercorn was most of the aroma, with slight hints of Belgian spice. Very hard to rate because it's just so odd.

T - The first taste wasn't much except for the green peppercorns. As it warmed up it was spice and the belgian tripel flavor really comes through.

M/D - Mouthfeel was rough, had a similarity to pop rocks. I wouldn't call this drinkable, but certainly unique.

750 ml corked and caged bottle into several glasses.

Pours a fairly clear gold, with several huge foamy fingers of bright-white head. This stays rich and frothy, leaving massive foamy swathes of lace behind. The aroma is floral up front, with the green peppercorn really jumping out as this warms, along with some underlying notes of sweet fruit, bread, and yeast.

The taste is VERY sweet with fruit and bready sugars, along with a fairly light hop presence. This is pretty assertive with the yeast, finishing very dry with a touch of heat from the peppercorns. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a softer and easier carbonation that then sits on top of a much thicker and stickier feel. Alcohol is mostly well hid, just a

I liked the peppercorn element of this but it was nearly drown out by all of that overly sweet and borderline cloying stickiness at times. I've had this on draft a couple of times and it was much better than this bottled version.

750ml bottle (thx johnmichaelsen!), best by 12/2/10, poured into my large St. Feuillien goblet, Green Peppercorn Tripel is a clear gold with lots of lively spritz forming a massive white head, very tight bubbles that has long last and leaves big foamy lace.

Smell is markedly peppery, with a little sweet bread dough like grain.

Taste nicely balanced and satisfying. The pepper is clearly present without overwhelming the clean sweetness of the grain and yeast character. Bittersweet, with a bone dry finish that lingers forever, in a good way, where the pepper manifests itself in the back of the throat.

Mouthfeel is full of fine carbonation, light bodied and dry.

Drinkability is good, in spite of the robustness of the peppercorns, the sweetness of the base beer provides some balance. My bottle's obviously a bit on the older side, and I suspect that the spice:sweetness has skewed to the pepper over time. Well made, unique, fairly light and clean, surely the best overtly spicy beer I've had (my general rule of thumb is if I can immediately distinguish the spice that was used, it's to much).

Thanks to Kegatron for sharing this 750ml bottle on 2/13/10.

A - Poured a clear golden body with some gritty particulates suspended throughout and mammoth three-finger crown of bubbly froth that diminished to a quarter inch of retention and deposited foamy lace all over the glass.

S - Sweet aroma with a pronounced peppercorn presence, resulting in a spicy character. Yeast offers fleshy fruit esters akin to apple and pear. Aside from the spiciness, there is also a hint of candi sugars.

T - Peppercorns are a bit more prominent in the aroma than the flavor. While there is a touch of heat from the peppercorns in the backend, ultimately this is quite a sweet Tripel with a sugary malt backbone.

M - Medium bodied with light carbonation and an oily texture, resulting in a slick mouthfeel overall. Finishes with a hint of heat from the peppercorn infusion.

D - Tasty Tripel with some heat and spicy, peppery character. Overall, I found it to be a bit too sweet for the style (and considering this was brewed with peppercorns). Still, this was a nice introduction to Brewer's Art, a brewery that has eluded me thus far.
