fonefan (35735) - VestJylland, DENMARK - OCT 19, 2006
Bottle. Clear light amber body, huge diminishing off-white head. Very big aroma, malts yeast, caramel, wood, fruits and grains. Sweet bitter taste with a little carbonation. Finish is very alcoholic, sweet light bitter, roasted flavour. Very heavy beer.

yespr (31651) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - OCT 9, 2007
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.

Ungstrup (29699) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 23, 2006
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 thereís no question, that the alcohol makes its presence known leaving a warmth and a tingling sensation on the tongue.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2005
(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

joergen (21334) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 12, 2005
Bottled. Clear orange coloured with a medium sized off white head. Acidic aroma with notes of spices and bread. Acidic flavour of spices, fruits, yeast and bread.

oh6gdx (20883) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 2, 2006
Bottled. Brown/amber opaque, longlasting mediumsized beige head. Aroma is toffee, caramel, alcohol, malts and some fruit. Enormous malts in flavour along with spices and dry fruit. Finish and aftertaste is mostly malts and alcohol. Pleasant winterbrew.

omhper (19809) - TyresŲ, SWEDEN - DEC 20, 2002
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.

fiulijn (15060) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 7, 2003
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.
