An incredibly satisfying Belgian Ale. My favorite so far. In fact, I think this beer is superior to Dellirium Tremmens (by the same brewer). Looks great, tastes great. I just wish they sold them here in Sacramento (Thank god I have a brother in L.A. that cares!) Gotta try this one!

Bottle 330ml, it was 9% ABV. Masterpiece, a great match for spicy food too. Aromas of bread, caramel, and hay. Taste is sweet, with strong bitter notes, and very long finish. Palate is syrupy, and full bodied. Yellow, with a frothy head, and lots of yeast particles.

The people who have floating yest in their bottles obviously had badly handled bottles and shouldn’t rate them. I had this beer on cask in the brewery in Melle.
A gigantic 2.5 finger head gives way to gorgeous Belgian lace that clings to the glass. The nose is of ripe pears, pepper, damp earth, and a subtle hint of mangos.
The taste is spot on belgian strong. The spicy phenolic blast is unbelievalbly smooth, the ester profile excellent. There is a cleanly balanced bitterness that drops away quickly with a low-medium hop aroma gives way to a clean finish. It is not too sweet, not cloying at all...this is an excellent beer, better than DT and on par with Duvel Triple Hop, De Graal, and Augstijn grand cru.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Veiled golden color with a powerful storm of activity. Thick creamy and super frothy white 5 fingers island cloudy head, lasting more than 20 minutes, creating thick leggings. Flavors of cheese, coriander, banana yeast, strong presence of grains, floral bouquet, some hops, hints of wood and a nice vinous and roasted feel. Some ester fruits like apples, a hint of honey, oaky, grassy, and orangy clove. Pleasant sugary feel yet sharp and bitter. Slick light body with champagne like carbonation. Medium to strong finish of long length, ending with a burned malty tongue coat, hoppy grass feel, warming alcohol, yeasty, barrel aged feel, and fruity grapefruits. Overall this is an outstanding craft with rich delicious yet accessible flavors for the style and strength. Very fresh but the smell is a little rotten yet still pleasant. Incredible quality stuff. Complex, balanced, well intensified, filling, warming, a pleasure to drink.

Bottle 33cl: In a tulip glass.
A great golden colour with slight sediment which is nice. A great white head that doesn’t dissipate. Great lacing on the glass which holds in thickness.
Nice aroma of yeast, hops and subtile spices.
Great taste in spite of it’s strength of 9.3. Hidden very well with a taste of hops, corriander and slightly fruitty with a nutty edge. The yeasty alchohol taste is not overpowering, but it is present.

UPDATED: APR 15, 2008 330ml bottle purchased in Tournai, Belgium. Wonderful citrus and clove aroma. Cloudy, murky, orange-tan color. Deliciously yeasty and tangy on the tongue. Full of flavor, a real Belgian treat. A lot of people dismiss the Huyghe brewery, but I think the yeast strain they use can deliver an exceptionally smooth and rich taste. World class, a must drink for those into the Delirium line.
