Kerberos Tripel

12oz bottle for a $7.99 four pack from Tower on Piedmont. I’ve been putting off trying this for a while, not sure why.
Dark orange almost amber pour into the Duvel tulip. Head is scant and short lived, to leave a few bubbles and some spotty head on the surface of the beer. No lace on the glass.
Definitely a “triple-like” beer but ends up coming up a little short, and you can tell this is not an authentic, Belgian Tripel. Body lacks something, and although the nose and taste both have some peppery, ester like sweetness about them, in the end the whole seems less than the sum of the parts! A bit too raw in places. A hint of peach in the taste, but a “stronger than I would like for the style”, raw alcoholic like burn.
OK, but not thrilling, nevertheless not bad value and a semi-drinkable beer. I’ve had worse, but then again I’ve had a hell of a lot better, especially within the style.
