Sweet aroma of pear, apricot, malt, and yeast. Clear golden color, froth white head. Malt dominates the flavor, with hints of the fruits from the aroma, and a slightly spicy, dry finish. Warm fuzzy mouthfeel. Very good Belgian ale.

One of the first belgian beers i ever tried. Very fruity & soft on the palate. Something very odd about the beer though, is that it has a small zone of temperature that it tastes best in. Too cold = too much bite. Too warm = overtly sweet. :?

This beer pours a light gold color and has a small hint of fruits in the aroma. It has a small head and leaves an average lace on the glass. This is the first time ever that I have not remembered something after two beers. I remember not enjoying the taste initially, but enjoying it more and more with each drink ... after that it's not even a blur. This beer must be laced with something because I've chugged much stronger beers and had no problem but I was just sipping on this one. I just remember not enjoying this beer initially.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
heavily carbonated hazy golden with a monstrosity of a head! aroma is banana, clove, juicy fruit gum with a metallic presence. reminds me much of a Wit's aroma save for the mildly displeasing metallic quality. flavor is initially strong on banana then a weird sour flavor hits followed by a moderate-strong alcohol quality. also a very numbing alcohol feel to this one. i wish this beer tasted nearly as good as it looked. 30 minute later re-rate!...WOW!!user-ex was right! this beer fell to pieces faster than the French army! with some warming near room temps, this turned into banana flavored-alcohol...bad beer!

This beer poured a hazy gold color and formed a bubbly white head. Some carbonation was present. It had an aroma of spice and citrus. A flavor of spice and grain with a touch of citrus. The finish was a touch tart and fizzy due no doubt to the carbonation level. This one reminds me a bit of Duvel and I found it to be quite enjoyable if not quite as good as Duvel.

Draught: Pours golden with a big fluffy white head. Light fruit and yeast in the nose. Pears, pineapple, sweet and pleasant. Flows down the hatch oh so smooth. Peppery, spicey and dry crisp finish. I love this stuff. Get it on draught!!!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bring on the next round of belgians to try at Obriens!!!! The Delirium Tremens poured a wonderful yellow color which was fairly clear with little sign of carbonation and a nice white fluffy head. The aroma is very entrancing...heavily yeasty, and some awesome sweet fruits that i made a vain attempt to identify as peaches. The taste is much of the same, with yeast, and a sweet tropical fruit nature taking over...a mix between peach and grapefruit. The aftertaste descends into a nice delayed tartness as those acidic fruits work their charm on the palate. The alcohol does become more apparent in the taste as opposed to the aroma, but those fruits more than make up for it. For 8.5% ABV this is very lightly bodied, and easy to drink.

Nice fluffy head at the start, followed by warm tropical creaminess. Didnt notice its 8% for a few sips. Its buttery and med-full bodied. Very smooth with hints of melons and orange.
always steady production

From bottle: poured a big tight head and a pale gold colour. Quite floral aroma. The flavour was more subtle than I expected , citrus and some alcohol evident as it warmed. Has a dry slightly bitter finish, not bad.

Aroma of apple - like an apple pie fresh out of the oven. Pours light but hazy. A steady stream of bubbles flows upwards from the middle of the glass (must by the chimay emblem in the bottom). Floral and fruity. Cinnamon with subtle lemon, apple rind and sourdough flavors.
