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.
