Dernière Volonté

Green’s, Buford, Atlanta, GA, USA.
Poured into the Val Du Dieu chalice the beer is rather well carbonated but fizzy rather than controlled. A lovely, golden yellow body sits underneath the scant head and some lace accrues.
Interesting nose and taste. This drinks like a non-sweet Tripel with plenty of alcohol character and lots of spicy white pepper. What seems missing from the mix is a residual sweetness and a smoothness that I would expect from a Belgian Pale. Very large, grapefruit citrus taste too.
Lacks a bit in the body, and if I am going to drink a Belgian Pale I want a little more sweetness and a little more depth. I like the pepper character but against the backdrop of a relatively thin body it loses its charm rather quickly.
OK, but not really for me.
