Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate apple, fruit, citrus, cotton candy, and a touch of orange peel. It pours a transparent golden-orange with a small off-white head that fades to a thick film. The flavor starts with light-moderate citrus, light apple, and Belgian yeast. The finish has orange peel, light florals, pepper, and a touch of peppercorn. Overall, it’s a solid Tripel, but I don’t get much peppercorn.

I thought this was a very nice tripel. The peppercorn addition really cut the normal Belgian high carb and made it a pretty smooth drink.

Growler from State Line. Pours a clear straw/golden with lots of carbonation and the head dissipated quickly with very little lacing. Aroma reminds me a little of a white wine. I detect grapes and some yeast as well as a hint of spice but overall the aroma is mild. Taste is initially sweet but then there is a nice tartness like a green apple. Despite the name I am not getting any peppercorn flavors. Medium bodied with a dry finish. What really stands out with this beer is how easy it is to drink considering the abv,

Draft. Pours golden orange with a white head. Clean pils-malt base, saaz-like hoppy notes, and light spicy notes, which I imagine is the peppercorn. Balanced and drinkable, but maybe a touch too strong.

Bottle as a wedding gift! Pours high carbonation in burnt orange w a white head that dissipates to a thin film. Nose is yeast and straw and booze burn. Taste is smooth, barley grains with a good amount of boozy burn but tasty. Only with there was more ’pepper’ given the name of the beer.
