Bottle. I had this initially about a year ago and wasn’t too impressed with it. I couldn’t discern any flavor or character with it, but I recently tried it again and was very impressed (must have been a fresher batch?) Has a really large head with some lacing. Nice golden yellow color. Large amount of hop and apple aroma, which follows through with the flavor. An excellent beer. I’m wondering how the draught compares with it.

Delerium Tremens has a crisp apple finish. It was served to me in a wine glass (because of the fermentation of the beer). The color is more of an amber, darker than the usual Belgian beer (in other words...Stella). It’s not as bitter as most Belgian brews. PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - JUL 10, 2006
Pours light golden with bubbly head. Funky sour scent, earthy and yeasty. Light & crisp flavor. Fruity & sweet. Apples & cherries are in there with a light yeast aftertaste. Maybe a bubblegum character. FrankJohansen (3622) - Sabro, DENMARK - JUL 10, 2006

On tap at the namesake cafe, Brussels. Thick sudsy white head over clear golden yellow in the appropriate tulip. Lace is sticky from the get go, interesting variegation of dense sheet and large holes in no identifiable pattern. Racing is average. Smells like freshly harvested grains and natural sugars, with orange peel and yeasty coriander. Last time I had this (at Map Room in Chicago a few years ago), I remember not liking it that much. This, however, is much better than I remember (although still not a favorite). The fresh grain is the baseline in the taste with a medium body that somehow maintains a kind of wateriness in the face of the 10% alcohol. On top of the baseline is lots of herbal mintiness, with the edge cut off by grainy sugars. The mint in the finish is more like eucalyptus, and for some reason I’m reminded of bamboo (there’s a low-level woodiness to this). The grains come back in the end (especially corn), and in the very end of the finish get kind of mealy (leaving you with an impression far worse than most of the beer). Very interesting; not something I’d need to have all the time, but every once in a while just to remind you something like this is out there. yngwie (17053) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 27, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2010 Bottled. Massive carbonation when poured. It has a clear, golden color, and a creamy, lasting, white head. Cellar, yeast, banana, spices, a bit sourness and berries in the aroma. The flavor is banana, hops, spices and alcohol. Sweet, full body and a quite bitter finish. Nice, but a bit too much alcohol present. Rating: 7-4-7-4-14-3.6. 060531Suky (1) - St-Marie, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 25, 2006 does not count
Bottle, at Cardinal. A hazy, dark amber to light brown beer with an off-white head. Dried fruits and dark sugars on the nose. Some cellar and grains, and a good dash of prunes too. Dried fruits, sugar, grainy notes and some roasted malts, or probably melanoidisation, in the mouth. Full-bodied. A nice one, but a bit on the grainy side. 091106

UPDATED: AUG 23, 2006 Hazy golden color with a small creamy white head. Very sweet candi sugar and mild spice aroma. Sweet candi sugar flavor, some light spice and faint banana hints. Original Rating: 6/3/7/3/13 ehhdayton (1188) - USA - JUN 23, 2006
A strong candy sweet aroma immediatly bursts forth. The malty aroma dominates and no hop aroma is appreciable. The beer is quite mild with a malty sweetness and low hop bitterness. Despite the alcohol content the beer finishes remarkbly smooth.
