If you like pepper and you like Belgians this is the ultimate! I just wish it was obtainable in more areas. I have only seen it in big bottles at Whole Foods and a few bars in Mid-Atlantic. Brewers Art beers are all very good and worth the trip to an out of the way place in Baltimore.

Had on tap at Lures in a pint

A-Pours a clear gold with a one finger white head that dissipates to the edges.

S-Aroma has a nice light fruit note with a good amount of sweet grains a hint of pepper and clove.

T-Flavor starts with sweet grains and light fruits with a decent amount of grass and grain in the finish.

M-Medium body with a moderate to high level of carbonation and a sweet slick bubbly mouthfeel.

O-Very drinkable despite the ABV. Way to go Brewers Art job well done!

Poured from a corked & caged 750 mL bottle into a matchy-matchy Brewer's Art goblet. Moderate hand. Dated 1/9/15.

A: Hazy, golden yellow body with 1 finger of mostly white head. Ok retention. Very light lacing. A bit dull, but a nice hue.

S: Pungent green (as well as white, black) pepper intermingled with Belgian yeast. Lighter fruit notes, exhibiting a somewhat indistinct muddling of mango, apple, pear, peach. Spice, specifically coriander, makes an appearance. Faint straw, grass. Floral element.

T: Spicy with assertive peppercorn up front. Slowly yields to a balancing, noble hop-type bitterness and a dry finish. Nice lingering essence of pepper with fruity undertones in the aftertaste. Slightly boozy, but suits the beer well.

M: Moderate carbonation. A slight prickliness actually heightens the pepper notes. Moderate body.

O: Full disclosure: I thoroughly enjoy pepper flavors and this beer sits solidly in my wheelhouse. So admittedly, my scores might be somewhat inflated. The tripel/blonde backbone is good enough, but the peppercorns really shine on this one. I've had this quite a few times before and hope to have it many more times in the future.

Prost!

Update: Revisited 2/12/2015 w/ bottle dated 10/28/15. Much less pepper and more typical tripel tropical fruit. Where'd all those sweet peppercorns go?
