not a huge belgian fan, but even as those go i dont think this was quite as good as the others ive had. im not a huge fan of the fake ceramic look for the bottle either. anyways, i liked the texture, but the flavor just wasnt cutting it

I really liked this beer. Large head but very flavorful. The lemon-orange taste is very distinct. Good aroma. A good treat for christmas.

My roommate from New York sent this to me, and I really enjyed it. It was clean, refreshing, and full of body. The aroma was very light and clean as well. Some lemon, some brown sugar, carmel, and some lighter fruits. Interesting for a Christmas beer. The flavor reflected much of the aromas, with a full body.

This pours a dark, syrupy ruby with a strong, off-white, and long-lasting head. The nose is of alcohol and sugar. This beer is likewise too syrupy and sugary at first tast, but the spice adds texture to the palate and makes this a worthwhile try. however, if you are not into the sweet, super-fermented style, then this will just be a super-perdictable and super-booring brew.

UPDATED: MAY 3, 2013 Bottled. I think Huyghe get a lot of bad press because they brew a huge range of beers, alot of which are decidely dodgy. However I think when they think about it they can do a good job, and the Delirium range prove that. This is a dark reddy brown coloured beer which pours with alarge off-white head, which shrinks down but leaves good lacing. the aroma is yeasty with moussey fruit and peppery spices. The taste is also yeasty. The 10% comes through to a certain extent. There are peppery hops and red fruits. Well brewed with a long tasty finish. Score 3.4
Subsequent rating also scored 3.4

A dark ruby body with a light head. Deep fruit scents and flavor. Good citrus ending.

2005, corked bottle. Pours a cloudy dark amber with a nice tan head. It has alcohol, caramel, and spices in the aroma. Tastes sweet with a hint of orange with a slight alcohol aftertaste.

750 ml painted (mock stoneware) corked bottle, now available in Norway (despite some objections by the humour & morality police). Amber to brown colour, large off-white head with an orangey hue. Malty sweetish aroma with strong notes of caramel, treacle and Christmas spices, also notes of yeast and oak. Flavour is very spicy and sweet (candy sugar) with a pleasant warming mouthfeel. Theres a hoppy and spicy (and slightly alcoholic) bite in the finish. A demanding beer, but not bad.
