emacgee (4272) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Pours a light clean straw yellow with two fingers of sticky white head. Nose is estery with soft white fruit being dominant. Notes of bread dough and spicy yeast creep in. Very similar to a Delirium but perhaps a bit more peppery/spicy. Light medium body with a fruity finish.

thanatosti (1066) - NETHERLANDS - APR 17, 2015
33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ van Rooij, Culemborg Hazy golden with a thin white head. Sweet and spicy aroma with some Belgian yeast. Taste is bitter but the alcohol sweetness does indeed mask that a bit. Finish is long and rather dry. Nice but deceptively potent beer.

chromeotaphor (75) - NETHERLANDS - APR 17, 2015
Fris waterig citrus aroma (brood hinten). Felle witte zeepachtige schuimkraag met een forse carbonatie, die langzaam weg trekt. Komt ontzettend bruisend fel binnen (net als de delirium tremens), een warme felle bittere afdronk die vrij soepel te drinken is. Drinkt zich geweldig weg net als andere brouwsels van brouwerij Huyghe.

Arek (441) - 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.

lello4ever (194) - ITALY - APR 10, 2015
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 (84) - 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.
