Bottle at St. Veronus. We mustíve had the worst luck that night. Three bad beers in a row, save for the Achel not being too bad. Lots of head on this one, and I was impressed by the pour. But drinking is something entirely different. The flavour was on the lighter side, and lacked complexity. Body was barely sturdy enough to be called a Dubbel. No mouthfeel, little taste. Not on my books.

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2011 Wire-and-cork bomber, poured into white wine glass. Nose is intense with white grapes, slight spice and biscuit. Extraordinarily crisp brew; yeasty mouthfeel, with more grape, some lemon, a bit of saison-like funk. Clean finish, with light bitterness left over. Alcohol is 99% hidden. Nice.

Aroma was strong with yeast and floral. The appearance was cloudy yellow with a thin white head. The flavor was nice with hints of citris and a creaminess like vanilla. Finished dry with a lasting tang. Overall a great brew.

Clear gold, cidery looking, with white medium lasting head. Aroma in glass is big citrus, floral sweet and slightly acetic. Flavor starts out big and malty, weakening slightly to a sweet-sour middle and bitter medium-long finish.

750ml brown bottle made to look like itís ceramic. Yellow translucent body with bits of yeast floating in it (as Iíve come to expect from Delirium beers...) and a couple inches of white head. Smells citrusy and yeasty with hints of spice and vanilla. Tastes citrusy, spicey, and yeasty with a hint of vanilla... Alcohol really isnít noticeable. Light to medium bodied. Fairly drinkable for the style and abv. A pretty good Belgian.

Drank in a Delirium tremens glass. Hazy golden poor with a nice frothy white head. Aromas are sweet, nutmeg, coriander, hoppy, caramel and pear apple. Very unibroue like flavors (Don de Dieu). Very off bitterness for me. You can feel the alcohol, long bitter aftertaste... I havnt drank this beer in over a year and i remember it ALOT better... Aromas = A1 ... flavors and palate... just a little off...

Bottle. The beer was a nice glowing amber color with a dense creamy white head. The aroma is really yeasty. Fruity. I wish they wouldnít spend all their money on a gimmick. That stupid, really expensive ceramic bottle. Iíd possibly buy this more often but itís so dammed expensive (due to that bottle). The flavor was nicely Belgian and has a sweet rock sugar that went nicely. Moderate palate.

25-ounce bottle dated 03/2006. Yellow with white head. Aroma of sweet yeasts, hops, fruit (apples and peaches?). Flavor was similar. Sweet and dry the yeasts are enjoyable. The palate is tingly from the alcohol and carbonation. The finish is crisp and bitter from the hops. There is a nice warming on the way down. Overall a very good Belgian Strong Ale, something that could be enjoyed frequently.

Went to a new bar today that had about 30 Belgians. This was my first of three and I did like its overall lightness, subtle fruitiness, and especially its appearance. I reminded me a bit of a Heff. Overall a good choice for a starter.
