4.72/5  rDev +14.3%

Presentation: 750ml white ceramic looking bottle with a blue foil-covered cork.

I don’t think I could have picked any other better beer for my 100th review than this one. This is an all-around great beer. It pours a clear golden/orange color with tons of carbonation. It’s topped off by a thick and fluffy white foam that fades down into a 1/4-inch head, which retains itself for the entire duration, leaving a sticky lace splattered on the side of the glass. This beer is bursting with a huge arsenal of aromas. Bananas, coriander, malt, alcohol and grapefruit are very prominent, intermixed with subtle hints of vanilla and hops that are blended together splendidly to give this beer an extremely complex nose. I detected a different scent every time I took a whiff. The flavor is just as complex as the aroma. The spiciness of coriander and the tanginess of citrus fruit hit the taste buds first, followed by a mild sweetness, possibly the banana, and then finished off with a mellow bitterness of hops. The vast array of flavors masks the alcohol taste quite well. The high carbonation level gives this brew almost champagne-like qualities, which tickles my tongue. This is an extremely balanced and complex beer, there’s so much going on. If it weren’t for the high cost ($8.99 per bottle) I would always have this beer on hand. I just can’t say enough about this beer.

Got it in Hungary.

A - Creamy big white foam, lasting minute or two, but leaving one mm. on top. Medium carbonation. Light golden color.
S - Floral, typically Belgian tripel smell, but weak. Warm, fresh..
T/M - So carbonated ! Warm. Almost can't feel nothing more from carbonation and warming.
Low bitterness, again some floral aroma's.

O - This is not my style, don't like strong beers, without strong aroma's.
