We’re Only In It For The Money

Purchased from Green’s on Ponce, Atlanta, GA, USA. 22oz bomber. 4th in the Zappa series from Lagunitas.
Poured into the Ommegang chalice the beer has a classic dark orange/golden Tripel hue, and initially a good head. This fades quickly though and leaves not much lace at all. Not ALL that surprising given the ABV.
A little white pepper and lemon grass in the nose. A little spice here and in the taste.
Mouthfeel is a little slick at first, but gets creamier as you drink more. Good fruity notes, but it cuts in quite bitter (grapefruit note) and relatively dry in the finish. I think that I would prefer a little more sweetness but that is more of a personal choice thing. Alcohol is there, but in check.
Nice example of a “less sweet” Tripel, so should find favor with many.
