very aromatic, floral, and overall spicey smelling. Color is more of a clowded golden with considerable white foam the subsides nicely. Taste is marked by the final hint of alcohol. Otherwise clove is the most notable pleasentry from this beer. There is of course the rather standard feel from a belgian, but this strays from the path rather nicely.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2003 24/4: Very wit like in appearance, cloudy white-yellow with huge foamy white head. Very fruity wheatbeer like aroma, hints of vanilla and bubblegum in there. Lovely sweet wheaty taste with clove/pepper like spiceyness to it. Great mouthfeel, lovely and creamy. ABV masked very well. Re-rate: Same as before, extra point onto apperance this time though. Brilliant head retention.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2004 **ReRate ** This is still one of my favorate beers of all time, but I had to relinquished it’s 4.5 rating after a year as my #1 beer due to Delirium’s lack of complexity. I will always enjoy this beer but after re-rating it I have realized that it is only a Fox in a sea of rabid animals!
I am a true beer lover and Delirium blows my taste buds away, it is Fantastic. This beer is unreal when found fresh on tap. I only know of one Pub in Tampa that I can get this amazing ale on tap; WOW, to this day I have yet to have a better tasting beer. Delirium pours a magnificent white frothy head. The aroma and flavor have suggestions of vanilla and citrus. I also find the oily characteristic, found in citrus fruit peals, contained in the palate. It finishes sweet yet dry. Delirium encompasses everything that I think a fine beer should contain.
