Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 26, 2006
Bottle at Lbaren - shared with Bager. Clear deep red - white head. Fruity, licorice, high sweetness, spicy, too high carbonation - kills some flavors. Not complex enough.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - NOV 23, 2006
750 ml bottle. Dark amber colour, mostly lasting tan head. Very much dominated by a "Unibroue-like" yeast character - very fruity, yeasty, and lightly spicy aroma and flavour. Medium bodied. Good, but straightforward.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 22, 2006
Bottle sampled with Beerded_one. Pours amber with a nice size fluffy off-white head. Aroma of belgian spices and yeast, fruit, citrus, and alcohol. The flavor is sweet, spices, fruit, slight bitterness in the finish. Great brew.

UPDATED: JUL 17, 2008 This is a wonderful winter brew from the Delirium family of beers. It seems to be fruitier than the nocturnum and tremens types, with a slightly sweeter taste to go along with it. The aroma is a wonderful prelude to the rest of the experience. I recommend this beer to those on the fence about trying it.

mtdshn (173) - Moline, Illinois, USA - NOV 20, 2006
Bottle. Pours a dark red mohagany with a very small head that disappates quickly into a small ring. Aromas of cherry, cinnamon, yeast, alcohol, dried oranges, possibly some clove in there. Thickish mouthfeel with a good amount of effervescence. Sugar comes out at the first taste then quickly goes to a sour lemon and finishes with a really nice strawberry and orange. A very fruity beer!

BrockLanders (780) - Panama City, Florida, USA - NOV 19, 2006
Nice ruby colored pour....minimal tan head. Big sweet dark fruit aroma...with a notable yeasty alcohol edge. Flavor is just as sweet, orangey alcohol flavor and quite tasty. One of the better Christmas brews Ive had...warming and balanced.

lgklotet (432) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 18, 2006
Draught at Delirium cafe Brussels. Deep red and residual head. Fiery, warming alcohol dominates. Some solvent character perhaps detract from an otherwise pleasant experience.

adrian910ss (2570) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 15, 2006
2005 750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden brown color with a thick frosty beige head. Aroma is tangy lemon with yeasty hops, sourdough bread and brown sugar. Taste is acidic citrusy with hints of caramel,brown sugar,lemon,dough bread,sour cherries and even bubble gum. Very nice and slightly different than your typical belgium style.
