4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very malty, with slight astringency. Citrus in aroma and flavor. Also smell pears in the aroma. Strength is very evident.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This golden ale has a thick, white head and a slightly hazy appearance. The nose is of sweet malt and light, citrusy hops. On the palate there is a great deal of effervescence and a lightly spicy character (coriander?) which dissipates into the lemony, malty finish.

(Bottle) Pours an XL white head and cloudy golden body. Floral aroma with a slight citrus and clove scent. Very fizzy. Flavours of malt with some spice. Finishes with a slight alcohol burn. Pretty good.

i don't like it as much as Nocturnum but that doesn't mean it wasn't good. lighter in color than the other deliriums but no less potent. a bit dry and fizzy in comparison as well. seemed more like a beer than a mutant cider. plus there are more little creatures to dance off the bottle after you put down a few.

This is some good stuff. A 25oz. bottle will put you away for the night. Definately a sipper.

Spicy belgian ale. Great on tap, less .... claustrophobic than from the bottle, a little lighter, less concentrated flavors, perhaps. Sippable or quaffable, from the tap. A winner.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
A fruity and floral flavor and aroma. Slightly dissappointing from the bottle but still good. A beer that in enjoyed not something to be chugged.

Tasted this one on tap from a Greenwich Village pub and it was one of the better beer experiences of my life. Floral, citrus, and clove notes dominated the aroma and mixed with a dry malt backbone for a complex flavor profile. Finished dry and spicy with a little alcoholic warmth becoming more prominent throughout. Never overpowering, though. An excellent belgian.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fresh nose of citrus peel, alcohol, and spiced pears. Pours from the bottle a cloudy honey. The massive fizzy white head is fully lasting with good lacing. The brew starts sweet with a warm middle and a long sweet and tart finish that is heavily acidic. The light to medium lively and dry body finishes alcholic. Better than Nocturnum IMO.
