Clear amber clour, surprisingly light for 10% A very good Belgian ale, while not very Christmassy?

Dark orange, lang lasting white head, sour, long aftertaste. Maybe served too warm.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy deep orange-red with a few black floaties and a thin, but retentive, whitish head. The aroma is orange zest, clove, some malt, and other spices. There is a caramel sweet maltiness up front, with a quick hit of the alcohol close behind. There are a lot of autumnal spices detectable, and the finish is largely clove and maybe cinnamon. This is definitely good for drinking in the cold around a fire.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2005 bottle. I definitely had to revisit this beer while the season is still here. pours a very cloudy dark orange with a sturdy white head and plenty of floaties. The aroma is of peaches, dry citrus, and a little sweet malt. The flavor is nicely complex, some cloves, nutmeg, a little honey. It’s very spicy and warming. Perfectly appropriate for the winter season. Not much alcohol burn for the %. This is moderately aggressive., certainly not too bad.

Spicey and very christmas like. Strong alcohol presence and traces of fruit and a lot of other things. Not to be gulped-drinky slowly and enjoy.

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2006 Keith-Typical Delirium taste for the most part. Stong aroma, but nothing special. Typical christmas additives like fig, nutmeg, and spice. Tasty and worth a try. Eric-Man, i had a friend bring a bottle from 2001 over the other night-what a treat! pours deep mahogony amber with a very light sudsy white head. much less carbonation than i was expecting. aroma of vineous cherries, light dusty esters, light funk, candy sugar, dark belgian malts0lots of dark fruit here! Wow! flavors of sugar coated cherries, big belgian malts and some nice brown spices. This aged so nicely. not any oxidized flavors, just a more round feel to it all. Alcohol is much lighter than when fresh. Man, this is a treat!

Hazy amber, nice head. Aroma from figs, red wine and almond. Figs in flavor, nutty, floral and with some alcohol. Vanilla in the finish.
