Haslinger (865) - The World of Beer, Texas, USA - JAN 2, 2013
pours a deep ruby brown with a frothy off white head. Simply awesome bottle shape. Kind of fruity plum taste. Not super malty. Not as good as I had hoped. probably would not buy again

Alusmamuts (375) - LATVIA - OCT 31, 2014
Dark with small creamy head (due to red light at Delirium Monasterium it’s difficult to understand colours). Well balanced yeast sour and malt caramel taste with certain sweet notes, but not too rich in sweet nuances.

adster (427) - HUNGARY - OCT 1, 2014
Vörösesbarna színe fölött pihe-puha habfödő csücsül, míg aromája a jól bevált fügés, mazsolás, belga élesztős jegyeket ontja. Parányi buborékokkal alaposan teletűzdelt teste összességében közepes teltségű, azt a szénsavmolekulák könnyítik ki leginkább. Ízében ugyancsak ismerős zamatokat üdvözölhetünk, malátás-élesztős központúság köré szilva, mazsola, barnakenyér és karamell karaktere rétegződik. Mérsékelt vérű, a belga sörök iránti tisztelet nélkül azt mondhatnánk, hogy szinte unalmasan kifinomult alkotás, amely azonban pont azokra a pillanatokra nyújt remek megoldást, amikor meglepetésektől mentes, klasszikus ízekkel szeretnénk találkozni.

camoes (154) - PORTUGAL - SEP 29, 2014
Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 18E). Bottle 33 cl - Batch L4084. AROMA: deep acetic aromas. unreatable. APPEARANCE: deep ambar color with an average ivory head. TASTE: deep sour and pungent flavours. unreatable. PALATE: thin body and extreme carbonation obvious from somekind of contamination. OVERALL: an oddly contaminated batch that leaves you thinking with what, since this beer has a rated ABV of 8%...
