3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Beautiful golden color, white head, fading to lace. I was surprised at how clear the beer looked since with the clay appearance to the bottle and the Belgian name I was expecting a cloudy wheat beer. Yeast and bread, but not as complex as I would have expected either ... somehow from the bottle, the name, the country, and the description I was expecting something more complex and more like a Belgian triple. But the other reviews use such wonderful descriptions that I will have to try this again.

Light lacing after a decent head on the pour. On the sweet side, with a touch of yeast taste. Worth another look.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This one has a very nice pour that is lightly golden with a nice thick creamy head. A great smell of flowers and fruits and spices. Very complex aroma and that follow thankfully into the taste. Extremely complex flavor that is very sugar coated but some nice flavors stand out, some citrusy fruits along with some bubblegum and cotton candy flavors. Very very tasty.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a very distinct yellow/white with some silvery effervescence. Lots of white foamy head. Nice smell of yeast, clove and moderately citrusy fruit.
Begins with a nice candied sugar flavor that is not syrupy or cloying. Almost like caramelized vanilla, nice and smooth. Some mildly acidic citrus flavors jump in the mix. There is a subtle yet wonderful wheat flavor in the finish and the alcohol is well masked. Low bitterness overall and a brilliant smooth texture. Great carbonation level in the bottle. Medium to full bodied. (I drank this in the middle of a night composed of lots of Milwaukees Best and lots more Milwaukees Best so most anything would taste great in comparison. Need to rerate)

This is the second Delirium beer I have tried (even though I didn't rate the first one, it was incredible). A fruity aroma and a nice pour with lots of head. Fruity flavor, with a strong alcohol aftertaste (in a good way). Defiantly better then the sh@t beer I just rated before this. also, you gotta love the name...Gawd bless this company for their since of humor. A good beer for #199.

A wonderful full flavoured beer. Quite a fruity nose and taste, the head doesn't hang around long has a great full bodied taste and slightly wheaty flavour .

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very nice. No head to speak of and a cloudiness that is a bit disconcerting, but the nose is rich with fruit and the flavour smooth, slightly tangy, and very easy going down. A drinkability that belies its strength and all in all a good drop. I'll have it again.

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2003 Poured a yellow haze. The head was quite active but was gone quickly. The aroma was lemony. The flavor dry and citrusy. Really great label design with the elephant and the marching gators.

Cloudy yellow in color with a fizzy white head. Aroma is citrus, spice, grains and alcohol. Flavor is sweet with a small touch of bitterness. A little too sweet for my taste.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2004 Clean aroma of alcohol, lemon and orange with yeast very apparent. Good cloudy pale yellow colour with big head which unfortunately dissipated fairly quickly with no lacing. Large bubbles but carbonation good. Mild banana flavour but also tasting some orange. Mild spice also noticeable. Bitterness overpowers a bit in the finish. Light, fizzy body with a smooth finish. Not a world class example but not a commercial poseur as the bottle and name may suggest. Bottle (green but painted to be opaque). Original rating 7-2-5-4-12 = 3
