Had this in the bottle and I was dead impressed. Better than the other Deliriums as far as I’m concerned, which cost far too much in England. Very quaffable for an 8.5%.

Bis auf den Namen ein reichlich unspektakuläres Bier. Die Bitterkeit passt nicht ins Gesamtbild. Vielleicht soll diese aber auch den Wow Effekt ergeben - tut sie aber nicht.

On tap at Bangers & Lace., Bready medium bodied Blonde Ale with a good strong alcohol kick. Moderately effervescent. Strong but bright. However, not particularly flavorful, would be better if it were sweeter. Barely above average, and below average by Belgian craft standards.

Bottle 33cl. Solid Belgian beer, but not for wow. Pretty bottle design, I like it.

A blond beer with thick foam. Taste of grains, bread and and citrus. I find there’s a lack of colour in the taste but the beer drinks down quite quickly and is refreshing / asks for more. There is a lack of complexity / a lack of mystery to the beer and quite unbalanced.

3.3
sinte (564) - Udine, ITALY - APR 24, 2017
Bottle 0.33L. Slightly hazy, deep golden body with a huge, creamy, off-white head, mostly lasting with nice lacing; high density of tiny particles. Moderate-to-heavy hoppy (grapefruit, flowers), light-to-moderate malty (caramel, grains) and yeasty aroma with notes of spices and alcohol. Moderate bitter, light-to-moderate acidic and sweet flavour; long lasting harsh finish. Medium body with oily texture; soft carbonation; light astrincency in the finish.

Homer321 (5045) - Melboring, Florida, USA - MAR 4, 2017
Draft. Coasters. Aroma of candi sugar and light phenols. Some fruity esters asbit warms. Clear gold. No head. Tatse is mostly phenolic pepper and a light subtle honey malt note. Decent but kind of bland.

fernockibeer (108) - Wroclaw, POLAND - MAR 4, 2017
Butelka do 10.2017. Wygląd - jasno pomarańczowe, zmętnione, z obfitą biała pianą. Aromat - słody, kukurydza, wychodzący alkohol, można wyczuć żelazo. Smak - chlebowość, słody, drożdże, owoce. Odczucie w ustach - wysycenie od średniego do wysokiego, pełne ciało, dość słodkie. Alkohol mocno wyczuwalny.

surething_ii (289) - Šenkvice, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 4, 2017
Bottle from Pezinská pivná pumpa. Oh yes, this will chop your head of easily. Classic Belgian strong ale just as I like it. I wonder how this taste typical for bb is actually called.
