This is actualy a pretty tasty beer...better than I expected from the delirium folks. Lots of fruity sweetness balanced with hot alcohol taste. Poured a thin gummy head.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 10, 2006
Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm. Hazy reddsih brown with a firm tan head. Black cherries, fudge, dates, figs, vanilla, white pepper and alcohol in the aroma. Figs, sweet cherries and toffee in the firm flavour, hints of pepper and apple-skins. Red fruit, pepper and alcohol in the aftertaste. Finally, a beer from Huyghe that I can enjoy.

AndrewM (126) - Waco (Buckle of the Bible Belt), Texas, USA - JAN 9, 2006
2004 Vintage, 750mL bottle. Pours amber with a head that fades quickly. Aroma of yeast and sweet fruits like bannana, apples, and bubblegum. Flavor is a bit sour. While there were bubbles in the glass, palate feels flat and a bit watery. The price of $10 also hurts the overall score. First impression: 7/3/5/3/9=2.7<P>Looking below at other raters, xproudfoot suggests letting it warm up. OK, after 1/2 glass with the above rating, I did that. Let it sit for a while. Aroma now has a cherry aspect. Palate a bit more lively, flavor still a bit sour with a bitter finish. Was really hoping for more out of this one. Bumping overall to a 12, but still wont be drinking this un again.

RooftopRogue (423) - Champaign, Illinois, USA - JAN 3, 2006
(2004 Version) This beer offers an aroma consisting of wheat, yeast, and a tangerine citrus smell. This beer sits in the glass as a copper solution with a thick butterscotch colored head. This beer greets the palate in a moderately thick manner producing the taste of yeast, wheat, and mild nuts. It fades smoothly leaving a mild nutty aftertaste lingering.

Clear light amber body, huge diminishing off white head. Enormous aroma, malts yeast, caramel, wood, fruits and grains. Sweet bitter taste with a little carbonation. Finish is very alcoholic, sweet light bitter, roasted flavour. Very heavy beer.
