From bottle purchased at Belmont Station for King’s Day Celebration. Clear light golden color. Aroma is floral spiced yeast and light citrus hops. Taste is slightly peppery yeast, grapefruit, and sweet citrus. Comparable to a saison but with a hop profile.

Bottle. Light golden with huge but not so beautiful head. Noble hops in aroma mostly, also a little bit spicy, fruity and grassy. Taste is malty, you can feel a huge percentage of alcohol. It"s not very disturbing, but could be replaced hy hoppy bitterness. Quite drinkable though.

Review according to BJCP 2008 guidelines (style 18D).
Aroma: light sweet malt aroma, honey alcohol and spices. Very subtle hop aroma and esters (orange like). moderate alcohol aroma.
Appearance: deep gold with material in suspension, so not clear. white creamy head with good retention and lacing.
Taste: bitter taste from hops (this is a special blond) that linger to the finish. Medium bitterness balanced with high alcohol content. Some orange zest flavor present. dry finish and moderate bitter aftertaste.
Palate: medium-high carbonation with medium body, giving a creamy sensation.
Overall: a complex blend of aromas and flavours that combine well together.

Lys gylden med medium skum. Aroma av gjær, litt sitron, humle og malt. I smaken finner jeg gjær, malt, litt alkohol, sitron og litt humle. Frisk. Jeg syns alkoholen kunne vært litt bedre kamuflert, den er tilstede i smaken, og varmer definitivt i ettersmaken. Først litt søt, så en mild bitterhet i munnen. Malt og gjær er dog det man kjenner best. Tynn/medium konsistens.

Tap at Delirium. It pours clear golden with a massive white head. The nose is earthy, toast, hay, grass, icing sugar and dough. The taste is bitter, grassy, grain, hay, icing sugar, straw, alcohol bite, spice and dough with a dry, bitter finish. medium body and prickly carbonation. Decent enough hoppy Belgian ale.
