This is my second sampling under the Delirium family. Absolutely stunning. I'm so impressed by this series of Belgians that I want to drink them all.

Serving: 22 oz. bomber into a glass ball jar beer stein.

A: Pours a crystal golden amber waves of Belgium blond into a glass mug. Full three finger head on the pour clings to the sides like Dutch lace on crack. Ten minutes and three gulps in, the beer still has a 1" halo around the perimeter and 1/4" high milky way lacing.

S: Smacks of biscuity lime and lemon zest combined with grassy florals and a fresh garden after a rainstorm.

T: Delicious. Super balanced alcohol esters and pleasant hops even out the sweetness of the malts. Not over-sweet, an absolutely magic equilibrium. Alcohol cleanliness is present on the frontend with the middle tasting of golden delicious apple, citrus, plum and apricots. Finishes with a slight bite of hops to finish dry.

M: Medium bodied and refreshing. Carbonation is slight and the drinking is very easy.

D: It's so tasty with dry fruit notes that you don't taste the alcohol. Much caution needs to be given to this brew as it's strong on the alcohol side. I could drink this beer every night.

Light amber. Darker than Duvel and similar in colour to a Czech pils. Haziness made carbonation difficult to see

Smell is of onions, pear drops and candy. To me this, smells very similar to Duvel.

Taste is of malt, sugar, pear, apple with a touch of booze and a warm finish. It is a bit like an "imperial pilsner" beer as it has the same refreshing drinkability of a lager but with more alcohol warmth and more flavours going on. Bit of booze on the finish.

Mouthfeel is fizzy and palate cleanisng.

Overall I found this to be similar to a Duvel with perhaps a touch more caramel sweetness. A very good BSPA.

My mark out of one hundred would be 93.
