Arek (494) - Zielona Góra & Wrocław, POLAND - APR 15, 2015
Bottle 0.33 l, Carrefour, Wrocław, Poland.
Bursztynowe, mętnawe piwo o obfitej i puszystej pianie oraz słodowym, ziołowym aromacie. Rozgrzewające i drapiące w gardle. W smaku gęste, lekko biszkoptowe, ziołowe z łagodną, chmielową goryczką na finiszu.

Un’ottima blonde strong ale del birrificio della Delirium, schiuma bianca di media persistenza, aroma speziato e al gusto risaltano un certo sapore di agrumi e malto. L’amaro del luppolo č appena percettibile, birra molto bevibile, promossa.

Pours a thick hazy yellow color. A very nice Strong Ale with a good complex aroma of fruity hops and spices.

AlfredoGarcia (103) - Santiago, CHILE - MAR 24, 2015
330 ml bottle. Fantastic sweet smell, you can feel notes of strawberry, hops and citric. Creamy white head with a deep golden color. Taste is definitely very Belgian, fills your mouth with a little bitter aftertaste, the only "but" of this beer may be the excessive carbonation, but besides that, is very well made and balanced. Taste is conservatively great, but indeed it’s Belgium delight.

11.2 ounce bottle. Pours golden amber with thick head and well-carbonated. Many particulates present. Nose is muted. Bitter taste, biscuity which lingers. Can taste the alcohol. Interesting beer.

ninecats (296) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - MAR 4, 2015
Bottle at Turisten, Ljungskile. Hazy yellow with a gigantic white head, quickly dissipating leaving lots of lacings. Pale malty aroma with yeast, rustic european grassy hops. Taste is medium bitter, floral hops, nice round malty body, slight spices. Medium creamy body, low to medium carbo. Well balanced, I like the roughness in the nose.
