3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ice tea-like colour with few foam. Light apple aroma, slightly acid with a quite short finish. It lacks of character.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Had a fruity, wine smell. Nice color & taste but a liquory aftertaste - almost like drinking a shot. Overall, not too bad.

Smells, looks and tastes like congnac with Belgian beer peach-like fruitiness. A very pleasant suprise.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Peach/amber color with a small head and nice lace. Aroma is more fruity than spicy in aroma, whereas the tremens is the other way around I think. Also had some wine-like characteristics. It is very hard to notice any alcohol aside for some in the smell- especially since it is 10%. Got much more complex- with some malty flavors and slightly fruiter as it warmed. I liked this one much better then tremens(which I thought was too hot and spicy with too much carbonation)- Noel is just right- well done.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2003 Cloudy dark color, small lasting head. Small yeast particles floating around. Acidic aroma, malty, licorice. Malty taste, strong. Bitter dry palate, alcoholic. Heavily overrated stuff.

Dark red-amber color and big fluffy head. Sweet malty nose and taste with spicey undertones and peppery dry finish. Thinish but a good balance.

This is a far greater brew than, Tremens or, Nocturnum. It was hard to think it came from the same brewery, because this Delirium has a far better and different taste than the other two. It is a nice robust and slighty fruity flavor. With a smooth alcohol dry finish. Reddish orange in color, and slightly spicy. Very, very good!
