WARNING!

This bottle Absolutely Needs to be Very, Very Cold before opening!
&
serve in a frozen glass
&
stand by with enough glasses/containers to pour entire contents plus mucho foam.

I did warn you!

Think Mentos + Diet Coke (CO2 nucleation)

After clean-up, & the foam settles a bit, here's what ya got >>>

Variable head (depending on how long it settles). More foamy than creamy.

Big spicy, citrus-pith, earthy, creamy/grainy nose. Belgian yeast, grapefruit-zest, & ginger.

On the palate > Big, full, round, & long. Spicy citrus & citrus-pith, ginger, & anise.
Hint of lactic sour along with creamy/grainy/fruity, citrus with a touch of sweet-sour/lemon-drop.
Not much heat, but does show it's 9% ABV.

This complex of flavors play out on a long finish & aftertaste with each rising & falling as they play out rather impressively.

89 Points

A very interesting, complex, intense brew, if you're willing to deal with the mess.
(note: I graded this brew purely on its quality, not the mess-factor)
