3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The 11.2oz bottle poured a clear copper color with thin layer of off white foam. The aroma is a bit light with a medley of fruit such as cherries, dates and raisins along with some spice and hints of alcohol. The flavor follows the aroma somewhat with up front fruitiness from raisins and cherries. Beyond midway a more tart fruit note surfaces tasting like apple and grapes. The flavor is rounded out with the help of coriander spice and pepper.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
25 ounce bottle from 2005. Amber with giant white head. Aroma of yeast, malt, fruit, and spice. Taste was similar to any good Belgian Strong Ale with added, nicely mixed spice. Alcohol is present on the palate but not overwhelming. Some bitterness and spice on the finish and warmth on the way down the gullet. Delirium Noel is rather mellow and smooth for a Belgian Strong Ale and it is very nicely completed.

Bottle. Dark brown beer with a strong bubbly head. The aroma is light sweet fruits and the flavour is quite sweet, lightly rich and slightly vinous. Overall quite a nice gentle tasting beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Amber body, with limited head. Aroma was a combination of tart and sour that strongly reminded me of apple cider, with slight graham cracker and cherry notes in the aroma. Grape-sweetness at fist, then black current and cream mixes in with a sour-maltyness. Good complexity so far. Then I swallowed, and it all seemed to go to hell. The taste reminded me somewhat of bile, which is a very easy way to ruin a good drinking experience. I hope that was just a bad bottle.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: Pours a murky orange/copper with a 3 finger off-white head that dissipates very slowly, leaving lacing all around the edge of my glass.
Smell: Sweet fruit malts and spices with just a small hint of alcohol.
Taste: The taste follows the nose pretty closely. This starts out sweet, fruity, and candy like, with a decent amount of spicyness. Alcohol is present, especially as it approaches room temperature.
Mouthfeel: Light/medium body with some carbonation.
Drinkability: 2 of these small bottles would be more than enough, especially at 10% ABV. This should be sipped, and consumed over a time of an hour or two. Very well balanced. I will most certainly look for this one again next year!

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle. Golden red body with a medium beige head. Sweet malty, spicy and some yeast in aroma. Sweet flavor, some alcohol, malt and fruit. Nice, complex but somehow not the most balanced beer around. Nevermind, it gave me some Christmas feeling.
