4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
from Total Wine - thin dark head, spicy with coriander, full with malty body and cant put my finger on all the other spices, finishes very smooth with lite alcohol but you feel the warmth. Most enjoyable and my 3 brothers enjoyed this the most of all beers tried so far.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sour aroma; lemon mixed with noble hops that predicts a dry drink. Pours a clear dark amber, effervescent wit a lasting white foam. Sweet and sour beer: smooth, sweet, nutty, toasty grainbill with lemony noble hops. The sourness is in harmony with the sweetness and gentle bittering. Full body, high carbonation, warming.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at ōLbaren - shared with Bager. Clear deep red - white head. Fruity, licorice, high sweetness, spicy, too high carbonation - kills some flavors. Not complex enough.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle. Dark amber colour, mostly lasting tan head. Very much dominated by a "Unibroue-like" yeast character - very fruity, yeasty, and lightly spicy aroma and flavour. Medium bodied. Good, but straightforward.

Bottle sampled with Beerded_one. Pours amber with a nice size fluffy off-white head. Aroma of belgian spices and yeast, fruit, citrus, and alcohol. The flavor is sweet, spices, fruit, slight bitterness in the finish. Great brew.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2008 This is a wonderful winter brew from the Delirium family of beers. It seems to be fruitier than the nocturnum and tremens types, with a slightly sweeter taste to go along with it. The aroma is a wonderful prelude to the rest of the experience. I recommend this beer to those on the fence about trying it.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a dark red mohagany with a very small head that disappates quickly into a small ring. Aromas of cherry, cinnamon, yeast, alcohol, dried oranges, possibly some clove in there. Thickish mouthfeel with a good amount of effervescence. Sugar comes out at the first taste then quickly goes to a sour lemon and finishes with a really nice strawberry and orange. A very fruity beer!

Nice ruby colored pour....minimal tan head. Big sweet dark fruit aroma...with a notable yeasty alcohol edge. Flavor is just as sweet, orangey alcohol flavor and quite tasty. One of the better Christmas brews Iíve had...warming and balanced.
