Brewer’s Art Green Peppercorn Tripel

750 mL corked and caged bottle. Thanks to lackenhauser as part of Veterans BIF.
Clouded orange body with plenty of thick, yeast sediment coming from the depths of the bottle. Head is initially a high, white affair but it fades quickly to leave a thin film and a white ring at the edges of the beer.
There is a lot of fruit (pineapple especially) and alcohol up front as one would expect, and then there’s a traditional white pepper note as well, but the finish brings that much greener, fuller, bigger feel that the peppercorn addition gives. It’s a good combo and it works really well since the pepper has a naturally synergy with the style.
So, the beer comes together nicely, BUT the alcohol and taste combo just gets too much, too quickly.It’s VERY hard work after the first 6-8 oz and the syrup, spice, fruit and alcohol just get too much for me. Two or three points down on the ABV scale would help, but for now it’s just a bit too much for me to handle.
