Santa definatley carries some as he transcends time and space each year. And drinker of this fine beverage will attain such a feeling. Its a delicious counsin to the tremens and nocuturnus. IF this beer can light that jolly ole cowboy’s fire, it can light mine.

Genial. Aunque sigo prefiriendo la delirium normal. Cuidado que se sube y no te das ni cuenta!

Franckg (340) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 5, 2015
Robe brune tirant sur le orange, trouble, quelques particules en suspension et une mousse blanchâtre enveloppe le liquide tout le long de la dégustation. Arômes très maltées, épices, caramel, crème brûlée, cendre, citron. En gros, on dirait un amalgame de différentes choses qui ne s’agencent pas très bien. En bouche, un certain équilibre s’installe. Les saveurs sucrées prennent le dessus. Caramel, compote de pommes, dattes. Le tout entourés de levures épicées. Finale brève, sèche et sucrée.

Nose of caramel candies and reminders of holiday spices. Tastes of amber malts and medium sweetness.

15.12.2014. Ruby brown, big head in Rochefort glass. Aroma has sweet malts, spices, raisin, molasses. Sharp carbonation. Sweet raisinous malts, quite full, some bitterness, plums. Tasty, nice balance although a bit on the sweet side.

Decent beer, I remember it being a lot better than this however. A bit of a metallic taste.

Kauge (565) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 13, 2015
Bottle from Tallinna Kaubamaja (€ 4.40). BB Sept 2017. What a curious label. An elephant dancing on ice, Santa throwing bottles at Snowman, and in the upper part, a row of birds falling on their beaks. What will this beer make me do I wonder. The bottle’s also interesting. How do they do that? Anyway, the beer poured a clear caramel colour, its head was big initially but dropped fast, leaving a bit of lace and a thin layer. Creamy beige colour. On the nose I got caramel, mixed with some childhood cellar shop bubblegum, it was candy-like, and as it warmed, it acquired a clovey spiciness, also a pungent alcoholic note. Some grassy hops seemed to be present as well. It tasted of alcohol and indistinct spices, dark fruits and caramel, plus a lot of herbal bitterness later on. It finished grainy and metallic and somewhat dry. Body was medium, carbonation near flat, with a velvety smooth mouthfeel and nice alcoholic warmth. Overall: nice, boozy, ballsy, sweet, strong ale. As I prefer darker Belgians I found this to be somewhat better and more interesting than, for example, Duvel, that I had before.

ronaldtheriot (1448) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - MAR 8, 2015
Delirium Noël has a think, cream-colored head, a mostly clear, rust-read appearance, and a good bit of sediment suspended throughout. The aroma is of slightly fruity, sweet, brown bread crust, and the flavor is the same, with candy sugar and very low bitterness. There is also a strong spiced holiday bread component. Mouthfeel is between light and medium, and this beer finishes a little boozy. RJT

Рождест& пиво от "розовы&# слонико& Более "жесков&# чем Делириу& Тременс. Впрочем, и более крепкое. Во вкусе немного карамел& специй.
