3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear golden pour with a thin white head and light sticky lacing .... Aroma has a nice punch of fresh peppercorns with some fruity tripel yeast and caramel malts .... great aroma .... Taste is spicy and sweet with caramel malts, lightly grassy and citrusy hops .... peppercorns are noticeable and tasty, but not overbearing and it also has a nice fruity tripel yeast as well .... mouthfeel is slightly oily/slick and very smooth .... finish is lightly bitter and peppery .... very well done

Surprisingly light for such a strong beer. Light in color, and easy to drink. A bit citrusy finish.

Bottle, as pictured. Pours a hazy gold, decent white head, bubbly. Smells a bit lemony, citrusy. Taste is similar, a nice spicy taste to it. Not too wild but very good, very well-brewed.

Hazy golden with a white head. Aroma is sweet, peppery, floral, light citrus, and a bit of candied sugar. Medium bodied with nice carbonation. Flavor is sweet sugars, some floral notes, peppery, a bit fruity. Really enjoyable beer. The pepper really accentuates the tripel bite.

Draft at Khyber Pass. Poured a clear bright gold with a lasting frothy white head. Lace. Floral peppery aroma rounded with some gentle sugar cane sweetness. Lemon zest. Thyme. Sweet green grapes. Jasmine. Lightly toasted wheat notes as well. Buttered shortbread. Hazelnuts. Nice look and mouthfeel. High ABV is rather well hidden. And yes the green peppercorns are certainly present but ultimately work well to cut through the sweetness without being overpowering. Feels both subtle and pronounced. Also brings some refreshing grassy notes that pop a bit at the finish. Not a traditional Belgium Trippel at all, but a very pleasant change from the usual.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy pale gold with a high frothy yet resilient head. The pepper shows in the nose just a tad, but overall aroma is somewhat faint for the style: a little floral hop and some belgian yeast, but both underplayed, possibly to not overpower the signature pepper hints. Great taste! Very well balanced; a little on the sweet side, but the peppercorn adds a slight bite thatí plays well with the alcohol bite to balance out the sugars. Feels silky and a touch dry, which contradicts the taste and lighter body in an intriguing way. Visually, it appears to be carbonated fairly heavily, but the mouth-feel suggest otherwise. Finishes long and gentle. Iím giving an extra overall point since they donate part of their profit to local charities. A laymanís tripel with a trappistís heart - kudos!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour is lightly pale golden yellow with a bubbly tan head. The nose is nice, yeast up front with a light pepper behind it and some nice lemon, very juicy,with a solid citrus orange hop in back. The taste is much more hoppy and sweet. Yeast is still pronounced in front, great peppery spice behind but the hops are very syrupy and juicy and donít transition well. Light lemon zest then orange citrus and a blast of tangerine with a moderate bitterness in the finish. Creamy medium body with a soft feel and solid level of carbonation offering a semi dry finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Moderate malt notes of light bread and grain, flowers, herbs and lemon for the hops, dough for the yeast with apple skin, white wine, wood, coriander and definitely green pepper. Head is average to large, fizzy, white with good, dense lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is muddy amber with a lot of tiny particles. Flavor starts lightly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and moderately acidic and bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, slick, with a lively to fizzy carbonation and a moderately alcoholic finish. A very nice Tripel with the added twist of green pepper.

Tasting at PapsÝís, corked bottle
Cloudy bond color, with generous, eggwhite-like head. Nice aroma of pepper and nettles. Sweetish malt flavor, elegant, fresh, with light Belgian yeast character, and very pleasant peppery touch; correct bitterness. The combination of pepper and sweetness is superior to other drier beers. Very good.
