3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33 cL coated bottle (Delirium Christmas). Pours reddish, unfiltered with lots of sediment floating around and small, yet dense off-white head. Aroma is quite fruity, seems to hold some berry at first, followed by dried fruits and some yeasty complexity. I sense some woody notes too. Quite sharp flavour at first, spiced and with an alcohol edge. For every sip it goes slight more mellow providing a more balanced feel and flavour of cinnamon, slight citric notes, roasted malt, sugar and a warming alcohol finish and body. Nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A deep red beer with a thin but lasting light brown head. The aroma is sweet and quite complex with lots of fruity aromas - a bit on the "older" side - peaches, black currant, and plums, but also notes of yeast, alcohol, and wood. The flavor is very sweet with strong fruity notes, oranges, peaches, plums, and some grapes, on a background where the alcohol is more felt than tasted, but there’s no question, that the alcohol makes its presence known leaving a warmth and a tingling sensation on the tongue.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle 75 cl) Comes as "Delirium Christmas". Slightly hazy, dark amber with a rather tall and handsome head. Spicy nose - of coriander in particular. Good, full, malty body with plenty of spices - coriander and perhaps some cinnamon and allspice too. Quite harmonious and balanced with a sweetness that never gets too dominating. Quite a hoppy finish. 261205

Sampled draught at Akkurat, Stockholm, Sweden.
Ruby. Bubblegum & cherry aroma. Vinuous, peppery and sweet with clean sugary flavour. Sweet finish with a hint of dust. Better balanced than any other Huyghe beer I can think of.

Hazy brown beer. Boozy fruit punch nose. Dry palate. Spicy aniseed malt with a touch of generic fruit and toffee. Finishes alcohol hot and dry with a spicy aftertaste. A bit clunky but okay.

Hazy amber color, big head, disappearing pretty quickly. Some aroma of malt and sugar. Good malty body, just a little presence of alcohol; turning into some sweet liquorice toward the end. Final with a strong bitterness, complemented by some liquorice.
