Labled as "Delirium Christmas," though I believe its the same beer. Hazy, brick red in color with a large, off-white head. Aroma is very nice. Sweet, spicey, caramel, fruit, coriander, and citrus. Medium body, watch out for the sediment. Malty, spices, yeast, fruits, and alcohol. Finishes with a nice bite, and noticeable alcohol. Exceptional.

The only thing X-Mas is good for is X-Mas beer. This sweet, malty, spiced beer is one of the best. Perfect when you live up north and dont celebrate the Christian feast, but want to dig the beers.

Grovlam (4189) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2007
Bottle 75cl. Large thick and off-white head that mostly lasted. Hazy amber color. Aroma of Christmas spice, coriander, caramel, fruit, yeast and maybe a hint of citrus like notes as well. Medium to full bodied with an average carbonation and light alcoholic texture. Balanced sweet malty flavor with light bitter and maybe a hint of acidic notes. Very nice and somewhat Christmas spicy lingering finish.

Purchased @ Ashur Liquor down in the Imperial zona. 750 ml bottle consumed August 2007. I was surprised to see this none the lease since I had never seen it before. I assume this has had some shelf life aged on it but to not to bad because of painted bottle. Anyways, the ale sits gently in the glass as a burnt red with plenty of sediment floating. The head is a lively thick topping at first but will diminish to a naked liquid. Aroma has a big malt profile with strong presence of authentic yeast. The flavor has started to go flat a bit but it will also hold a nice spice and heat.

Ruby with offwhite head with loads of sediment. Sweet fruity aroma. Mildly sweet fruits, spice, detectable alcohol.

Tap @ House of Brews, NYC (December 2006). Pours a nice deep ruby color with a lacy white head. Aroma is spices such as coriander and cinnamon, along with some malt and candy sugar. Taste is highly spicy, and the flavors become increasingly complex as you savor the beer. A wonderful, wonderful Belgian Christmas ale.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 28, 2007
Pours reddish amber with a fully receding off-white head. Aroma of heavy phenols, toffee, and caramelized sugar. Notes of apple and bret. Mouthfeel is full bodied, sticky with soft carbonation. This one had been aging for 2 years, and had gotten a bit too phenolic and acidic.

Had this after a 3 day ski trip to Canada. So it seemed much better than it actually was. However, We had a second bottle the next day. It has a light colored head with an slight orange tinge to it. Surprisingly, the alcohol flavor is scarce. There is that spicy freshness present that I associate with Christmas beers. I noted an awful lot of particles floating about, but that was just an appearance related note. The crisp sweetness that dissolves that holiday spice makes this a wonderful beer for the holidays.
