In my opinion, the best of the Delirium Belgian Strong Ales. Not as dark as Nocturnum, it still has a deep reddish brown color with a spicy sweetness that glides down your throat. The flavor and aroma are both easy on the senses, disguising the high alcohol content of this wonderful beer.

Beautiful, strong, warm and festive all around! Pours a slick thick browny red with a thin yellowed head. Aroma is sweet as hell and smells like berries with malt and wheaty highlights. Tastes hits the tounge instantly, quite a sharp cherry and berry taste with the a smoother breadier taste on the middle of the tounge, spicy finish and a warming aftertaste. Phenomenal!

VERY impressed with this beer. I couldn’t pin down which of the numerous beer flavors was dominant. It is very easy to drink and warms the gullet all the way down (probably because of the 10%). It’s the best beer to come from this brewer. A great beer. Wish it was easier to find.

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2007 Nice floral fruit aroma, beautiful ruby coloring. A great fruit wine/beer flavor so typical of these wonderful beers. No hoppy bitterness and a pleasent buzz is obtainible.

750ml into tulip glass. Quite honestly one of the best beers Ive ever had. The bottle was over 3 years old, still fizzy when poured with a nice head. Sweet with a nice hop balance. This was a joy to sip and just sniff the aroma. Shared the bottle and we both got a buzz from out of nowhere. The tastes of various fruits changed and evolved with each sip, with that belgian yeasty mustiness in the background. Almost perfect brew.

Like an intensely flavorful champagne, this pours a wonderful amber brown and has a pronounced effervescence.

This is a far greater brew than, Tremens or, Nocturnum. It was hard to think it came from the same brewery, because this Delirium has a far better and different taste than the other two. It is a nice robust and slighty fruity flavor. With a smooth alcohol dry finish. Reddish orange in color, and slightly spicy. Very, very good!
