UPDATED: APR 14, 2005 The design of the bottle. The expectations when you hear the name of this beer. Perfect. Superb. But the beer is OK. But I think it is too strong.

Light and golden with a full white head. Smells a bit like lemons and taste is smooth and crisp.

This beer is very refreshing and pleasant on the tongue as it effectively blends malts and hops. I can’t find anything about it that isn’t satisfying-it smells nice, tastes nice and you can drink lots of it. It has a pleasant orangish yellow color. The aftertaste is what indicated its slight complexity to me. It isn’t anything over the top though and I find the "rated best beer" ad banner foisted above it at the beer fest a bit of a gimmick. I would say that this is an above average Belgian brewed for the crowd and not the Belgian beer enthusiast.

UPDATED: OCT 14, 2006 Bottle at home.
Bottle, in Gent.
Golden with off-white head, almost lasting. Excellent lacings. Aroma and flavor of malt, yeast and light of hops. Medium to full body, oily, soft carbonation. Really good. 6-3-6-4-14/3,3

Another amazing beer from Delirium. Smells excellent and looks golden without much head. Tastes of lemon and sweetness. So tasty. Very complex, as several malty tastes swirl around one another. You’ll enjoy this big time.

a nice taste but a little boring! Too carbonated. Sweet and bitter. Well balanced

Had this after a Westmalle double and it definately held its own. After the Noel(orange), then the Nocturnum(brown), I was given a *yellow/orange* with this one. Head subsided nicely into a smooth drink. Had a punch of citrus flavour with some add ons of fruits and a little hop. Fizzy on the mouth and left a warm impression, with a mild bitter. More flavour on the aftertaste than first taste which was neat. An easy finish.

Not your standard belgian here. Poured orange with a thick white head. Aroma was very sweet bubble gum. The flavor was a mix of original bubble gum and that flavored mutli-colored crest toothpaste made for kids. That kind of toothpaste that kids eat instead of brushing with. Sweeter than most, but still has enough malts and hops to make it decent.

Pours a fizzy white vanishing head...golden pilsner colour but cloudy. Aroma is of citrus. Taste is of apricots, hops, and a nice balance between the sweet/sour, high abv hard to detect...fizzy mouthfeel works nicely. Seems to have improved with some moderate aging.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2006 Re-rate: Aroma of noble hops overlaying crisp malt and ending with a hint of green apple. Appears straw in color with a turbulent, swirling effervescence of large bubbles, and with a large rocky head of frothy white. Flavor is sweet and fruity, almost sugary, and finishes strong and bitter. Palate is moderately slippery on the tongue and very effervescent. Overall, a decent, and equal to the sum of its parts. I definitely overrated this on my first go-round.
