Bubbles what first came to mind when sampled. Nicely hopped. Great bottle. Nice head. Would have this one again

Poured a transparant light copper with a lasting head and decent lacing, like a pilsner. Fake ceramic bottle looks like itís straight from hell, itís definitely the bad kind of kitsch. Sweet yeasty aroma of vanilla, cinnamon, cherry and sugar. Taste starts out sweet and malty, but finished with a pleasant hop-bite. Well rounded. Mouthfeel was good, maybe a bit high on the carbonation. Nice.

Deep golden color with nice frothy head. Initial aromas are citrusy and bready. Flavor was good, but nothing special; I seriously enjoyed the Delirium Noel, and this paled in comparison to the Noel. Tingly alcohol on the aftertaste with a smooth finish. Good drink, but again, canít be compared to the Noel IMO.

Nothing compared to Delerium Nocturnum, but Tremens goes down nicely. It has the normal color (hazy golden) & aroma and taste (citrus, yeast, fruity malt) as others of this genre, so it isnít anything distinctive. However, I enjoyed it for all its normalcy, and I would definitely try it again.

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2007 Measured up as what you would expect in a traditionally strong Belgian like this. Good golden color with an appropriately hazy appearance. The head poured clean and frothy, with a good thick whiteness to it. Poured out of the bottle well. Mild citrus notes and expected yeasty notes. Light body, as expected.

Iíd equate this to the Budweiser of the Belgian beers. Donít get me wrong, it is a decent beer, but in comparison to the mass produced Belgian ales, this one "lagers" behind. I do like the bottle though.

On tap. Yeasty aroma, slightl lemon. Pour is very pale and dull for a belgian, with a flimsy head. Kind of watery though quite drinkable for 8.5%. Could be a lot stronger and have a lot more character for a beer this big, really. It tastes like its 5%.

Cloudy golden with a creamy white head. Aroma is yeast and fruit. Sweet fruity taste is rather one dimensional. Some bitterness in the finish. Rather ordinary Belgian.

Decent beer but nothing special. Pours with a big sudsy off white head and an odd shade of gold in the body. Smells like malt and alcohol with lots of fruity notes. Flavor is yeasty with malty fruit flavors, and alcohol notes and the last glass out of the bottle was quite chunky, almost chewy. Might be worth exploring further.
