Slightly reddish brown with a short lived cream colored head. Sweet banana yeasty aroma with a faint spicyness. Sweet acidic fruit flavor with a slightly sour aftertaste (also a little chalky). This beer really does not match my drinking preferences.

750-ml caged and corked bottle pours cloudy orange-brown with small off-white head. Aroma: caramel, yeast, sweet spices. Flavor: all of the above with some honey and grapes. Medium- to full-bodied.

How the hell didnt I rate this. Noted at least 1 Belgian rating missing from where it was before recently, so who knows, maybe this one fell victim to some moron or just bug. Shared with Hrabren, thanks! Slighly hazy dark amber body, enormous off white head. Fresh caramel and wild strawberry aromas, slome bubblegum. Taste... mild fruitiness beaten by all too dry phenolic touches. Strawberry and light peach. Okay, good even perfumey Belgian ale.

lokis333 (478) - Birai, LITHUANIA - MAY 22, 2017
Hazy amber colour with white foam. Aromas of sweet cherry, plum and lollipops. Palate, full body with sooth texture leaving sweet finish. Taste, sweet of spice, cinnamon, fruits and light touch of alcohol. Overall, nice cinnamon gum like sweet beer.

tekstr1der (479) - New Hampshire, USA - MAR 16, 2017
Ruddy brown pour with everlasting tan foam. Aroma is malty and semi sweet with some astringent, somewhat sour/metallic notes. Flavor follows very closely. Having just had Rochefort 8 and regularly drinking Chimay Blue, this was a letdown for sure. The pink elephant had done well for me in the past, but not so much with this one. Okay, and drinkable for sure, but expectations were so high.

hawthorne00 (3855) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 16, 2017
Bottle. Deep clear red with a very large off white head. Aroma of caramelised bananas, raisins, prunes, mace, aniseed. Full bodied, not terribly syrupy or boozy. Moderate carbonation. Some roasted flavours join the dried and stewed fruit and the finish is drier than expected with moderate bitterness. Licorice and aniseed hang around. Good.

Bottle. As "Delirium Christmas" - Dark Amber. Strong, sweet (syrupy), very fruity and spicy ale. Fruits (cherry, citrus, apple). Malty, caramel, brown sugar. Yeasty. Warming in the finish, but alcohol well hidden. (2008)
