3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2003 24/4: Very wit like in appearance, cloudy white-yellow with huge foamy white head. Very fruity wheatbeer like aroma, hints of vanilla and bubblegum in there. Lovely sweet wheaty taste with clove/pepper like spiceyness to it. Great mouthfeel, lovely and creamy. ABV masked very well. Re-rate: Same as before, extra point onto apperance this time though. Brilliant head retention.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2004 **ReRate ** This is still one of my favorate beers of all time, but I had to relinquished itís 4.5 rating after a year as my #1 beer due to Deliriumís lack of complexity. I will always enjoy this beer but after re-rating it I have realized that it is only a Fox in a sea of rabid animals!
I am a true beer lover and Delirium blows my taste buds away, it is Fantastic. This beer is unreal when found fresh on tap. I only know of one Pub in Tampa that I can get this amazing ale on tap; WOW, to this day I have yet to have a better tasting beer. Delirium pours a magnificent white frothy head. The aroma and flavor have suggestions of vanilla and citrus. I also find the oily characteristic, found in citrus fruit peals, contained in the palate. It finishes sweet yet dry. Delirium encompasses everything that I think a fine beer should contain.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
aroma of spices and yeast. Pours a pale yellow, low carbonation. Satisfying palate that one would expect from a belgian ale. Alcohol is present but is smoothly delivered. Tasty.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 Mild aroma similar to a Hefe Weizen I recently had. It has a light yellow orange color with a short head that disappears quickly. It tasted a little sweet/sour to me. Not a bad taste, but I also think my taste buds were a little off from a recent dinner. It gave me a bit of an initial feeling on the roof of my mouth that lasted a fair length of time. GF gave it a 3.75 rating with mixed feelings as to how good it really tasted and as to how long she could continue drinking it at a bar or party.

Light brown/dark orange beer with a pure white head (brilliant appearance). The aroma is light with a sour undertone. The flavour is not that strong, the slight sourness and citric elements come through. Another great Belgian beer.
