3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a nice golden bubbly with a medium head. Aroma is lemon, honey with hints of peppery yeast. Lots of malt in the flavor with a citrus spice finish. Banana and orange are in the flavor mix as well. Medium and fizzy in the mouth with a somewhat dry finish leaving just a hint of the sweet maltiness behind. A well blended belgian ale.

Bottle: Pours a cloudy burnished color. It has a nice fruity aroma of malts, yeast, and spices. Medium bodied with high carbonation, the flavor is intensely malty, with a crisp, dry finish and a lingering sweetness. This beer is very tasty and smooth, with the alcohol well hidden.

This beer is very accessible in France. Very fraiche citrus nose with some barnyard. Yeasty. A warming taste with some alcohol. Somehow I would describe it as brassy

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer has a amber body - hue apperance and a coarse white scum collar. I have drunk the beer from the bottle and it had a lot of carbonic acid. The initial flavor taste is sweet and spicy.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a gummy head. Tastes much better on tap than the bottle. Lots of bubble gummy and fruity notes. The alcohol doesn’t come out as much as it should for a strong ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a slighty hazy golden amber with an average bubbly white head that stuck around but became spotty. Aroma of sour apple, Belgian yeast, candied sugars, fruits and slight citrus. Flavor was more malty with some spices, slightly bitter and yeasty. Cannot detect the higher abv.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy, golden color, with a little light, foamy head. Has an OK fruity aroma. Pretty good flavor compared to other higher ABV beers I have had. Has a decent body, pretty fizzy with the carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden color, opaque, with a large fizzy white head. Extremely fruity aroma, definitley pineapple notes there. Flavor is pretty sweet, almost too much so. The finish is pretty nice though. I haven’t had this in a while and I remember it being so much better. Their Delirium Nocturnum and Delirium Noel are both much better. Overall it’s still a pretty good beer, just not that great among Belgians.
