3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
When I saw the name Delirium Tremens on a tap handle, it reminded me of what I had read in a few beer books, and how it was "some" authors number one beer.
Well when the lovely bartender poured me this beer I had much antisipated, buy the look of the orangish brown Beligian-Style beer emiting from the tap I looked not to be disapointed.
Then she delivered this treat to me, and at my first smell of this beer my senses highten as I readied myself to tasted the best beer of my life.........
BUT, I was suddenly dissapointed by the taste, not that this it was a bad taste but I had antisipated greatness and this was not greatness. It was very good, it had a great taste that masked the high ABV. But it was NOT the best beer "I" had ever had not even close. This makes me realize that I need to look more into what I read and who it is written by.

Draft beer poured at craft beer market in Edmonton. Pours clear golden color with almost no head. Smell is very powerful; yeast or bread. Taste is sweet and has a slight citrus flavor. Not a huge fan but I’ll drink it.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Complex nose. Golden haze. Fruity, estery. Palate delivers what the nose promises. Dry finish. Beautiful.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. It’s years since I’ve had this. Nose is yeasty, esters, peach strawberry. Taste is esters, straw, strawberry, pear, lots of banana with a dry thin finish.
It’s a bog standard triple, that would be nowhere if it wasn’t for the fancy bottle.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from BevMo! in Redwood City, CA. Pours gold with a foamy / airy head. Aroma is bready and floral. Taste is the same with some fruity notes on the tail. In a few years, this could be a strong contender to usher in the mainstream Belgian beer craze (Heads up InBev / Molson Coors / Heineken).

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Farbe: kräftiges klares Gelb.
Schaum: schnell weg, vgl Helles.
Nase: Sehr eigen. Honig wie in einem Met, dazu aber Citrus, und grasige Noten.
Geschmack: auf der Zunge überraschend sauer, feinperlig. Abgang dann noch leicht bitter.
Leicht bitterer vor allem aber säuerlicher Nachgeschmack...
Net so meins, erinnert mich an "Nordisch Herb", wobei die Aromen schon recht einmalig sind, eher wie ein Geuze.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
C’est sucré et doux avec des arômes très classiques de bière belge. Certainement pas à la hauteur de son amusante étiquette ...
