Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - AUG 24, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2005 Bottle. Nose smells like candy apples. Sweet brown sugar taste. Has an after taste like honey and brown sugar together. There is a lot more going on here, but I cant describe it. Prune, candi sugar, malt, apple, and spice come together perfectly. This is very, very good.

Christmas in August Really enjoyed this, even though its probably been sitting on the shelf for over a year. (aging as they say). The 10% abv kick would be clutch in the winter but is also good for sitting on the couch in August watching Samurai Jack DVDs

Bottle. Perhaps a 2003. Poured a murky light brown with a tannish head. Very big and fluffy head and nice lacing. Aroma is of wet cardboard maybe some prunes. Taste is slightly tart. Not entirely pleasant. Not really happy with this one.

From a recommendation by a friendly employee at the beer distributor I often go to, Delirium Noel was bought just in time for the xmas season. This is definately not for everyone. A lot of alcohol apparent in the aroma and while drinking. Needless to say, I didnt drink a lot of this stuff and took my time on it. There is a sweetness but it kind of sneaks up on you after the bitter and alcohol taste. Harsh on the palate. Difficult to drink. But other than that, the flavors are pretty complex and if you're looking for a buzz, this does the job.

diabel (1607) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - MAY 31, 2004
Deep brown body. Brownish frothy head, mostly diminishing. Aroma of some kind of cleaning-product, I think "Mr. Propre Wood-fresh". Lightly sweet, lightly bitter initial flavour. Lightly sweet finish. Good flavour, but nasty aroma.

mikeben (355) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - MAY 26, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2007 Nice floral fruit aroma, beautiful ruby coloring. A great fruit wine/beer flavor so typical of these wonderful beers. No hoppy bitterness and a pleasent buzz is obtainible.

Lunkie (1416) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - MAY 26, 2004
Fruit spiritus aroma with dark red colour and littel head. Spiritus malt flavourn with smooth fizzy palate.

jeffin7 (612) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - MAY 15, 2004
Aroma of barnyard, sweet malt. Flavor of dark fruit, barnyard, herbs, and a mild bubblegum. Medium body.

Far better than my first run in with this brewery. Much less sharp and abrasive, rather pleasant actually. Full blown Belgian style head and lacing. Fruit (cherry mostly what I catch) and for being 10% its not the abrasive wallop that their Delerium can be. Rather enjoyed this and wish I hadnt been so hesitant to pick up another bottle or two as it was practically being given away when I bought it.
