Opening the bottle involved two tools of the trade: bottle opener and corkscrew. Even after the cap was liberated, the beast was screaming to get out -- attempting to burst through the cork. Once unleashed, foam proceeded to erupt. In short, she needed some time to process the situation before allowing me to indulge. Appearance: explosive effervescence, and an enormous bright white head -- diminishing with time leaving a clingy lace and a good film to lock in the flavor. The color was golden; hazy with lots of carbonation rising to the top. The aroma is of bubblegum (strong), fruity fresh and very full. Taste is full, sweet, with a spicy biting middle and a dry finish (quite complex); the bitterness ligers well into the next taste. Mouth feel is medium bodied, syrupy, and effervescent. The transition from sweet to dry is intensified by its intense bitter characteristics
This is a lively beer with a lot of character. Intense. Nothing laid back. I enjoyed much of the experience, but could not really get beyond some of the overpowering bitterness. Otherwise quite remarkable.

Yellow color with a one finger with short retention but always keeping a thin plate.
Interesting aroma with predominant notes of melon, dry fruit, pineapple, wheat, pine, green apples and white wine.
Flavor of Cointreau liquor, spices, lots of yeast, dry fruits, champagne, herbal hops, green apples, white tea, melon, flowers and honey. Dry, bitter and acid aftertaste.
Medium body with effervescent carbonation. 10% abv is felt; well it is hard to disguise an elephant with a skirt.
Seemed to me like a mix of Belgian IPA with a Tripel. An alcoholic punch and a bit too sweet resulting in low drinkability. A must for Tripel lovers.
