Not bad. Bready and fruity aroma. Nice deep brown color with a small head. First tastes reminded me of a Belgian Dubbel. No hops presence detected but malts with doughy and graininess. This melted together with some sweetness. The alcohol became more noticeable near the end. Medium weight palate.

This left me utterly confused. It tasted strongly of iron, with a slight pickled taste. Im no stranger to belgian styles, so I knew approximately what to expect...but wow it was horrible. First beer Ive ever poured down the drain.

Amber brown and clear body with a light white head, this beers aroma has hints of cloves and caramel. Taste is sweet and effervescent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A very sweet, overripe banana-like aroma. Also in the taste the sweetness is coming back together with the slightly higher alcohol and herbs, seems logic for a christmas/winterbeer.

aleksander9 (504) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 13, 2014
Deep red with white head. Aroma is cherry, caramel, red candy and delirium yeast. Oily palate with high carbonation. Aftertaste is rich, fruity, funk, dry, red berries and lingering delirium mystique. Overall: Very enjoyable.

weordie (90) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2014
Pours a deep red with a huge foamy head. Aromas of glazed cherries and christmas cake. Very strong taste of marzipan. Its quite a nice one off but couldnt have more than one

eduardovl (929) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
330ml bottle poured in a chalice. Lovely and traditional BSDA. Sweet and malty with the strong and delicious taste of Belgium yeasts. A: Dark amber and clear color. with a ruge beige aired and bubbled head which dissipates quickly leaving almost no lacings S: Sweet and roasted malts and the delicious Belgium yeasts. A bit fruity (reminds plums and raisins). Fresh earthy hoppy. Bit alcoholic end T: Better part. Sweet upfront. Very malty and fruity with a light bitter hoppy end. A bit metallic. Could be a bit less sweet and a bit more bitter IMHO. Delicious Belgium yeasts aftertaste M: Creamy medium body and medium carbonation D: Good. No mistake, another delicious Delirium specimen. Enjoy it! [ BA Review @ 11/24/2010 ]

Maakun (767) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 11, 2014
Bottle. Clear brown with small white head and some yeast floating around. Very sweet, brown sugar, candy, strawberry, artificial fruit flavors, pears and Christmas bread. Chemical bitter finish. Ok but the finish is pretty bad.
