Tap at Little Delirium. Clear golden with white head. Tangerine skins, hay, marmalade, funk, raw vegetables, sweet malts. Quite sweet going into light sourness and thick bitter citrus finish. Medium bodied. Quite interesting beer, has some almost lambic like touch, I like it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
75 cl. with a cork indicating a 2012 vintage. Pours golden-amber with a few sea monkeys floating around the midriff and a thin film of foam on top. Nose is treacle, pineapple, berries and a faint hint of oak. Tastes of brown sugar and apple, with some bitter herbal and wooden hops. Long finish has some waxy kerosene notes that I detect in all of the half-dozen products I’ve tasted from this brewery. Medium body has a low-medium carbonation and is balanced, but in an extremely bipolar fashion.

Clear light amber, big white foam head. Light citrus notes, some hop. Strong bittersweet taste initially, changing quick to more bitter, some fruity tones. Complex. (Arnhem 201504)

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Strong golden color and slightly opaque. A Cream advanced training, dense and persistent. Excellent lacing. The cream on top brings a peculiarity of microbubbles present at its base and greater near the top.
The aroma is very slightly sweetened by vanilla, banana or perhaps, with citrus notes, for strawberries, green apples, cloves, and hops are present discreetly. Alcohol can be noted in the aroma, but nothing that is compromising.
As a powerful Belgian Strong Ale does not show an amount of drink but of appreciation.
Its flavor is fruity initially being soon caught by the power of alcohol that is neat by strong bitterness. Well spiced by coriander, nutmeg and perhaps peppers notes. The hops are applied subtly noticed.
The bitterness comes to exceed a little and perhaps influence of excessive carbonation, but despite this detail is very well built and balanced.
Medium body and slightly oily texture.
At the end there is a very slight incursion of acidity, without harming anything in the feature of this beer inside your style.

Helder donkergeel bier met veel schuim. Smaak is zoet en kruidig, hop, banaan, vanille. Erg goed bier wat lang blijft hangen.

33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ van Rooij, Culemborg
Hazy golden with a thin white head. Sweet and spicy aroma with some Belgian yeast. Taste is bitter but the alcohol sweetness does indeed mask that a bit. Finish is long and rather dry. Nice but deceptively potent beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Fris waterig citrus aroma (brood hinten). Felle witte zeepachtige schuimkraag met een forse carbonatie, die langzaam weg trekt. Komt ontzettend bruisend fel binnen (net als de delirium tremens), een warme felle bittere afdronk die vrij soepel te drinken is. Drinkt zich geweldig weg net als andere brouwsels van brouwerij Huyghe.
