Appearance: Cloudy, light orange.
Smell: not really noticeable with the glasses the brewer served in. Some grape.
Taste. Very light grape, mellon maybe. Honey. Peppercorn, alcohol aftertaste. Slight burn.

This is really good. It's certainly not in the particulars, but the total experience is very enjoyable. It's smooth at first, with a bite at the end. I would get this again.
Oddly, the bottle states it's a blonde ale.and it's closer to that than tripel. I will say this, of you let warm, the grape smell and taste really comes out. However, it is surprising much much better cold.

Poured into a snifter. Pours golden orange with little head. Smells of nice deep raisins and grapes, very nice. Tastes of fruit, especially grapes, and nice grain backbone. Beer is full bodied but goes down very easy, very nice light carbonation. Overall a very good beer.

Poured into a tulip glass from a 22oz. bottle. It looks like pretty much every other triple. A golden glow with good light penetration. Decent head and carbonation. It has a very traditional triple smell. Nothing special, but still good. Flavor is where this really comes through. I was expecting more of a bite, but the pepper flavor was perfectly balanced with the sweetness of this brew. I have no idea what a green peppercorn tastes like, it tastes like every black or pink one I've had. I would have called this fresh peppercorn, because that's where it really wins. It has a light hint of fresh pepper, not that stale black crap on your table. Overall a very cool triple that was adventurous and pulled it off by adding a hint of peppercorn, not so much it kills the triple. Would definitely buy again.

Bottle from Food and Friends in Philly.
Pours a brilliantly clear light golden color with a huge fluffy white head that slowly dissipates to a cap on top. Smells of pepper mostly, with hints on yeasty esters and a touch of sweet honey like malt. The flavor is heavy on the pepper with a sweet bready honey like malt flavor and a bit of spicy yeasty phenols to round it all out. Medium body with a moderate to high level of carbonation and a sweet slick bubbly mouthfeel. Nice beer I've been wanting to try this forever. Its very heavy on the pepper, I felt that a bit more sweetness might have helped to counter that a bit but it was good as is.

Body is clear gold with a thick foamy head. Pretty decent retention and lacing.

Nose is biscuity malt, a waft of green peppercorn that creates a bit of peppery taste on the tongue and throat, along with banana and candi sugar sweetness.

Tastes of all these things. The green peppercorn is strong yet melds well with the yeast and sugar. The alcohol provides some additional peppery kick.

Body is medium, has a light, refreshing mouthfeel.

A very decent triple, rather strong in taste and alcohol but true to the Belgian style.

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.
