Delirium (636) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 27, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2012 Bottle. Pours slightly hazy amber, with a foamy, disappearing white head. Aroma and flavor are fruit, orange peel, bit of caramel, yeast, and mild hopping. Moderately sweet. Doesn’t seem particularly christmasy, but it’s fine as a Belgian ale.

stevoj (1958) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Beautiful looking beer, amber brew with towering fluffy head. Mildly spicy and nutty, awesome head retention, slightly musty aroma. Earthy, wooden, nuts....I am drinking this way out of season, but it’s still good.

Bamsen78 (2885) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 30, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear amber with airy but stable off-white head. Clear aroma of fruit and malt, with notes of caramel, yeast, and spices. Sweetish, malty and fruity flavour, with bitter notes of hops and a touch of flowers. Bittersweet finish. Quite decent.

thewolf (11099) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 2, 2007
Tap @ YNWA, Kolding. Pours a clear golden with a small creamy white head. Aroma is sweet malty with a slight dose of spicyness. Quite full and round mouthfeel. Sweet taste with flavours of ginger, anise and vanilla. Nice and good - quite refreshing for a Belgian Christmas beer.
