This is an excellent beer, one of the best triples I ever had, maybe the finest!

I thought this was a very tasty beer. The first impression from the aroma alone initially made me somewhat excited to taste it, and the flavour did not disappoint.

Cloudy gold with a foamy head. Aroma resembles that of Duvel. taste is sour with sweet undertones. Finish is a little bitter, which makes is very refreshing.

[330ml bottle, Delirium Café, Brussels] Dark golden amber colour out of the bottle. Quite hazy. Gives off deep alcohol aromas with some fruit. The taste is wonderful, like a darker, punchier Delirium Tremens – hops, grass, flowers, fruit, then that alcohol on the finish. Very moorish, but at that strength it could be highly dangerous as it doesn’t really taste 8.5% at all [10032010]

Rerate Still a good triple, but the appearance isn’t that good. Still, it’s perfectly capable of masking it’s ABV, which is IMO very good. Spicy taste, delicious! Original rate This is one of the best tripels i’ve ever had. Perfect head, smooth spicy taste. A pleasure to the tongue in my opinion!

Had this in the bottle and I was dead impressed. Better than the other Deliriums as far as I’m concerned, which cost far too much in England. Very quaffable for an 8.5%.

Golden colour, very allive carbonation, medium to large white head, sweet sour melon like smell, warm sweet fruity melon, high carbonation, hints of the alcohol percentage but not unpleasant,

Robe blonde, légèrement opaque. Mousse bien. Saveurs de grain, levure, pain, agrumes. Carbonatation fine. Assez sèche en bouche. Une très bonne bière.

on tap @ Sergio’s / Louisville KY --- Clear medium amber, white head cover, full curtain of lace. Aroma of sweet malt and citrus, appealing aroma and appearance. Taste is sweet malt that expands in the palate, adding light sweet citrus and a bit of alcohol warmth on the swallow before nudging toward bitterness in a long satisfying finish. Highly recommended.
