Delirium is a good beer. Its easy to drink for a strong beer. Some fruit notes, Sugary and all that.... BUT where are the elephants !!??

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2003 Suprised to find anyone that didn't enjoy this. Aroma is definately nectarines (not peaches) with the smallest amount floral hop and of volatiles. Poures a slightly opaque straw yellow with a big fluffy head. Flavour is slightly sweet with a small amount of malt and an INCREDIBLE aftertaste of nectarines to match the aroma. Magnificent carbonation and wonderful full mouthfeel. Given enough of it I may seek out the fabled pink elephants myself.

Golden yellow with a medium fizzy had that is slowly diminishing. SMells like banana. Taste banana and bubble gum.

Aroma is of pears and oranges. Pours with a large bubbly head. Flavor is spicy with some citrus fruit, mainly banana, and a slight alcohol burn. I don't enjoy these belgian blonde ales very much. Overall its ok but I prefer the Nocturnum from these guys much better. This is a so-so belgian brewery with many others at the same cost that offer so much more.

Extremely sweet beer that does not hide the alcohol as well as it should. Beautiful golden body with an enormous head. Very peary, apple like and alcohol laden.

Great beer in a beautiful bottle. Fruity, sweet and a bit on the dry side. Goes down very smoothly.

I was hoping for so much more from this one. The color was terrific and the aroma not bad at all, but the after taste left a lot to be desired. I'm not sure if it was too bitter or what, but something about it wasn't quite right. I've had much better Beligian ales and high octane brews in general.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is becoming one of my favorite Belgian ales. Great eggshell painted bottle with little pink elephants on the label. Nice pour of orange tinted cloudy golden body and white froth. Aroma of fruit and a little yeasty. First few sips seemed very effervescent but smoothed out as it rested. Flavor is great with fruit and and spices with a definate yeast and alcohol presence. Overall sweet and dry. Reminds me of one of the Chimay beers I've had before.

I must of had a old bottle or a bad batch, this was a wishy washy beer that had hints and promise of flavour.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Blonde in colour, with a nice fluffy white head. Yeastie smell with not too much other aromas rising. The taste was fairly yeastie and also clovey and bananay. A typical wheat, but not the best representation i've had. A decent beer...good for a normal wheat, but this shouldn't be looked at as anything special. Sampled on tap at the Old Toad in Rochester, New York.
