Brewed by women, this heavy blonde beer has 8.5% ABV and second fermentation in the bottle. This beer has a pale blonde colour and fine, white creamy and lacing foam. The aroma is very balanced, with a fruity and flowery background and a first impression of chardonnay, that further evolves to a spicy, mild hop aroma. The flavour is very balanced with fruity notes of apple and chardonnay grapes. Deliria has a fine, mildly bitter aftertaste and a wonderful, round mouth feeling with a nice evolution.

Specialty beer, brewed once a year on the occasion of International Women’s Day

5000 (6600) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 5, 2015
Bottle:   Pale golden, bright, lively carbonation, moderate frothy white head, fairly nice lacing.   Bright musty nose, soft bubbley breadiness, with a slightly artificial sweetened background.   The backside reminds me of some fake sugar substitute, leaves a coating on the tongue.   BURP!   This one has fairly strong carbonation.   Has a straw/hay sort of grassiness to it on the backside.   Its like a muted Belgian Blonde with bits of Pilsner mixed in.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Also comes across as a bit dusty.   Crisp, but has an odd sweetness, or perhaps not enough sweetness as it seems overly grassy.   As Blondes go, its a bit warming but a little more grassy than others.

I’m a sucker for new Delirium beers so that’s why I grabbed it. Pours a clear gold color with a foamy white head that disappears quickly. Aroma is lightly sweet with a hint of lemony citrus. Light flavor with bitterness, CO2 bite, and some Belgian yeast. Fine.

DrSilverworm (8867) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 2, 2015
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2015 750ml bottle, from Dutch’s. 2015 bottle. Hazy orange golden color. Bigger fizzing white head. Fades to a thinner frothy amount, leaving some splotchy bubbly short ropes of lace. Bigger spicy peppery, kind of citrusy hop. Some banana, a touch of metallic. Bigger bitter taste, kind of a spicy roughness. Milder sweet. Belgiany yeast, bit of floral. Medium-bigger body. Kind of soft, stronger carbonation, very effervescent. Kind of dry finish. Nice bigger amount of hop on this, which is pretty pleasant. The texture is a bit rough, but a solid hoppier belgian golden strong overall. Not so smooth swigging. soda water. Didn’t end up finishing.
