sebletitje (9192) - Enghien, BELGIUM - NOV 22, 2011
draft @ Delirium as Guillotine Bitter. Dorée, col blanc Arôme est dans la lignée des Delirium avec ce nez qui se retrouve dans bcp de leurs bières. Note de houblon, malt léger pale, qui pour moi me rappelle tout de ces bières malt liquor des US. En bouche, bière maltée avec ce bizarre palais amer houblonné industrielle le tout sur un alcool réchauffant. Sec, avec une pointe de citron et épices et forte astringence. Porte ben son nom car faut vraiment monter à l’échafaud pour boire cette bière. Rappelle trop la Délirium avec trop d’alcool et sans caractère.

Clear darker blond coloured beer wih large diminishing white head and some nice full carbaontion. Hoppy yeasty aroma. Full sparkling palate. Finish is bitter soft with a rather alcoholic touch.

EithCubes (5615) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 26, 2011
Backlog from 27 June 2011. Bottle in Budapest. Orange pour with consistent carb and a Duvelish head (!). Nose is straight yeast and basically Pilsner malt. Taste is yeast and candy sugar, but not really sweet; grittyish and dry with nice yeast notes. Warms the chest but not boozy, mild fruitiness alcohol, well-hidden but this one’s about the yeast.

Bottle at home. Great bottle! Beer pours a golden amber with a thick white head that fades to almost nothing. Slight lacing. Nose is christmas spice, cloves, hint of banana, vanilla. Similar flavours, big sweetness, pretty fizzy but with a decent spiced hop finish. Alcohol hum too. Not bad at all.

MrHangover (3935) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 17, 2011
Bottle. Orange colour with a white head. Smell of grapefruit, lemon and Belgian yeast. Flavour is strong alcoholic. Bites a lot on the tongue. Gets better when warmer.

lukin (575) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 28, 2011
Cloudy gold, massive head. Aroma of pear, apple, grains, sugars, citrus. Big intense taste, alcohol, sugars, bitter kick on the swallow. No subtleties on this one, name suits it.
