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.

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 Ive had...warming and balanced.

Draught at Delirium cafe Brussels. Deep red and residual head. Fiery, warming alcohol dominates. Some solvent character perhaps detract from an otherwise pleasant experience.

2005 750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden brown color with a thick frosty beige head. Aroma is tangy lemon with yeasty hops, sourdough bread and brown sugar. Taste is acidic citrusy with hints of caramel,brown sugar,lemon,dough bread,sour cherries and even bubble gum. Very nice and slightly different than your typical belgium style.

This 18 dollar bottle was well worth it. It has a heavy sweet flavor and a lot of alcohol, but you cannot tell. The bottle is very cool, painted glass.

Red color, vigorous carbonation. Small, off-white head. Bubblegum, cherry, brown sugar, rose, lemon/citrus in both the aroma and taste. Sweet and tart. Enjoyable. Thanks Frizzzzle.

750 ml 2005 bottle brought to a tasting by frizzzzle and shared with csbosox and Indra. Poured a firey copper with a stone colored head. Lots of Brussels lace. Aromas of peach, mint, berries, Juicey Fruit, and some yeast. I caught flaovrs of smoke(?) cherry, some citrus, sugars and tartness. Really nice on the palate. Nice drink.

Pours a brightish red color, clear, with a medium, fine, light tan head. Lacing is very smooth and thorough throughout the drink. Flavor is predominantly sweet, with cherry notes. Mouthfeel is prickly, with a bit more carbonation than Im used to. This beer has a nice, strong flavor, with a relatively dry flavor.
