Beerenberger (1518) - Fischer, Texas, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Aroma of dark dried fruit, figs, bread, Belgian yeast, and initially a hint of cheese. Pours a beautiful clear dark amber with a quickly dissipating white head. The taste is overeall sweet. Rich red pitted fruit, malts, and a nice bready flavor. The finish has a welcomed hint of alcohol burn, but overall the alcohol is well hidden. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, while I think of a "winter seasonal" beer as having more spices, this was a very pleasing beer that I enjoyed and would drink again.

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 (501) - 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.

Pours a deep red with a huge foamy head. Aromas of glazed cherries and christmas cake. Very strong taste of marzipan. Itís quite a nice one off but couldnít have more than one

Bottle from Vinmonopolet Lillemarkens. Medium brown. A couple of centimeters of white bubbly head. Candy, sugar, banana, some cherry and other ripe fruit flavour. Sweet. Lots of carbonation. Medium to slightly oily body. Very good.

eduardovl (925) - 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 (757) - 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.

"a darkish beer with bubbly off white head. smells quite malty with a yeast backbone apparent with spices and dark fruit. taste is super complex...fruity, malt, candi sugar, a little yeasty but not overdone. one of my favorite winter beers. 12/09-a 2008 bottle did not hold up as well as hoped. still good, but did not diferentiate itself enough from their other brews."
