TheBeerGod (5685) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUN 3, 2003
Slightly hazy blond. Almost no existent head. Nose full of malt, yeast and alcohol notes. Tongue takes those and adds citrus and floral notes to it. Warming, smooth finish. Good beer.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 17, 2003
Aroma is pears and yeast, hazy golden amber, with a small firm white head, and constant bubbles! Some pleasant lace. Strong inoffensive alcohol taste, with some caraway rye highlights, and light fruit. Pleasant mouthfeel, medium bodied, tongue tingle as expected with the style. Good.

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 5, 2004
Golden colour, big white head with a lot of small bubbles. Nice nose: acidic fruits, spices, and alcohol. Flavour is quite strong and sweet with an alcoholic bitter finish. Certainly not a prime example of the style, but still not too bad. My bottle was 9% ABV.

Dutch70 (48) - USA - APR 30, 2005
Strong beer, powefull, very like Delerium, but the alcohol in this one really stands out. I like it, once in a while, but not my favourite.

Bottle. Light hazy golden colour with a medium white head. Yeasty spicy aroma and a sweet yeasty fruity taste. Medium to full body and a sweet light alcoholic finish.

HogTownHarry (6371) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAY 23, 2006
Bottle (12oz). Shared with blankboy, tupalev and Dave B - blankboy’s bottle. Hazy orangey-yellow with a decent white head. Aroma is sweetly spicy and yeasty, lemon zest and alcohol. Taste is similar, a little more lemony and alcoholic - bit of a boozy spicy finish. Average body, slighlty harsh and sticky - nice, a bit too boozy.

blankboy (6776) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 24, 2006
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, tupalev & Dave B. -- my bottle courtesy of Presario. Pours a hazy gold with a small diminishing white head. Aroma of yeast, lemon and other fruit, some spices and alcohol -- somewhat unique smelling. Flavour follows the aroma but is a bit boozy. Medium bodied. It didn’t do much for me but it’s an O.K. Belgian.
