3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught @ beerbistro, Toronto: The LCBO banned this because of the name, but thankfully the folks at beerbistro convinced the brewery to let them carry it. Came a light-orange/yellow with very little head that retreated to thin lacing quickly. Aroma was sweet malts and fruits with spices and prevalent alcohol. Taste is quite nice with a plethora of fruits and spices alongside malt and yeast. The warnings of alcohol on warming are quite true, drink it fast or suffer the consequences. Still, a really interesting beer and one I’d have again.

On tap at the Bier Market.... It poured a clear bright yellow colour with a creamy white head. Not a very strong scent but a nice strong flavour like a fine weise beer. A little strong on the finish with hints of alcohol.

I really enjoyed this beer. I had it down at the Bier Markt in Toronto. It’s a nice place that has about 50 beers on tap but perhaps each beer suffers from competition. This beer had no head on it. Tasty Bengian spices and a nice quick short-lasting aftertaste. I call it the strong beer that tastes light. Very nice. Very palatable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a yellowish orange, with a 2-finger head that lasts and coats the glass. I really enjoy the aroma here - that classic Belgian banana and spice, and I also get faint hints of that bubble-gum that some raters have mentioned. Tastewise, this is your prototypical Belgian. Nothing outstanding, but certainly nothing out-of-place or offensive. Spicy to the highest degree, with yeast and citrus coming through. A pleasant amount of carbonation; it doesn’t sit on the tongue, but probably shouldn’t exactly be called watery.

Beer 28 Summer 2006 trip in Europe. Drank on 7/3/06 on tap at the Delerium Cafe in Brussels. A decent tasty belgian strong. It felt like appropriate choice for a first beer at this cafe. Leaves a bit to be desired, its tasty and better then most but worse then a lot as well.

lets face it..we are spoiled by belgium beers (and southern californian) thus we have high expectations. Delirium is delicious compared to Amstel but next to some of its neighbors it gives me the delirium tremens..... But Hey!! I would never turn it down and thats the truth!!!! (well....thats my truth!!)

Light copper pour with a thick frothy head. Nose of fruit (strawberry) and bubble gum, mixed with yeast and hops. Big carbonation on the taste, along with flavors of fruit and hops. Medium to full bodied. Very nice.
