Ungstrup (35021) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 23, 2006
A deep red beer with a thin but lasting light brown head. The aroma is sweet and quite complex with lots of fruity aromas - a bit on the "older" side - peaches, black currant, and plums, but also notes of yeast, alcohol, and wood. The flavor is very sweet with strong fruity notes, oranges, peaches, plums, and some grapes, on a background where the alcohol is more felt than tasted, but there’s no question, that the alcohol makes its presence known leaving a warmth and a tingling sensation on the tongue.

Some rum. Yeast and alcohol. Taste: Sweet beer with good body. Unsweetend dried plums and a typical Delirium sourness. Some iron and minerals. Some vineous notes.

Porus a dark, cloudy brown with a minimal tan head. Aroma is very sweet, some cloves and spiciness. Fruitiness and candi sugar dominates the palate. Quite sticky as it goes down, with a slight burn. A seasonal favorite.

skoisirius (1908) - Earth, Washington, USA - JUN 24, 2006
2004 vintage. 750 ml bottle into a 2 oz Snifter glass. Pours a amber golden brown hue with a semi-foamy white head that hugs the rim of the glass throughout the whole bottle. Aroma consists of a very spicey and appley consistency with a solid hint of alcohol. Flavor brings out much of the same as in the nose, with a very fruity and appley flavor mixed with various spices. A hint of yeasty Belgian sweetness is also present. Moving into the finish a waft of alcohol climbs into the nose. This one aged quite nicely. A very solid XMas brew from Delirium!

eaglefan538 (3033) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 9, 2006
Aged sample on draught at the Half Moon in Kennett. Poured a dark brownish color, tripel fermented, they said. Nice initial head that subsided and provided ok but not outstanding lacing. Aroma was spicey and of dark fruits and caramel. Flavor was much of the same, mouthfeel nice and creamy. A very enjoyable beer with a touch of bitterness to finish.

wxman (1756) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - JUN 5, 2006
Pours a bright amber with antique lace head with the large bubbles typical of belgian ales. Pleasant sour malt aroma. Sour citrus flavor with a dryness not unlike wine. Spices, sweet maltiness and mild hop bitterness are there as well. Very warming alcohol feel after swallowing. A delicious winter warmer type of belgian.

JoeMcPhee (9325) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 31, 2006
750 ml corked and caged. Dark amber colour, fast fading off-white head. Toast and plums with some spicy notes. Light peachiness and some soft sweet caramel malt. Simple yeast, but has enough spiciness to keep things interesting. Clove, peach, light apple and brown sugar. Flavour is quite sweet, toast and brown sugar, plums, apple, orange and some lingering spice on the finish. Orange peel and pith flavour. Some light herbal hop flavour. Becomes a bit vineous as it warms. Well balanced, lightly peppery on the finish. Pretty nice beer.

Bottled. Brown/amber opaque, longlasting mediumsized beige head. Aroma is toffee, caramel, alcohol, malts and some fruit. Enormous malts in flavour along with spices and dry fruit. Finish and aftertaste is mostly malts and alcohol. Pleasant winterbrew.
