Green Flash Trippel

22oz bottle, purchased at State Line Liquor, DE, USA. $5.79.
Poured into the Val-Dieu chalice. Pour is a very nice, slightly cloudy classic orange body. Head is not very well retained, but is attractive, and very fluffy. Lace was impressive. It loks attractive and inviting.
Some mild pepper in the taste, but also some edgy, solvent like alcohol. Warming on the way down too. The slightly watery texture adds to the solvent nature. Definitely some lemony, acidic and sour notes, and these take away from the sweetness that I would expect for the style. A dry finish.
A bit odd for me – even from one mouthful to another this seems authentic on one hand, and then a little harsh and alcohol laden on the other. A work in progress in my book.
