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.

What can I say about a beer that is named after a medical condition that happens to alcoholics after withdrawing? It's great beer compared to other beers of the world, but is marginal good compared to other Belgium Strong Ales. It is definately a hipster beer. It pours bright gold, has a petite head that sticks around a little bit, and stable body (average carbonation). It has a natural taste of grasses, malts, hops, earth, and sweetness, with the yeast taste running major interference. It has an edge to it's tast becuase of the 8.5% ABV, it has malty aftertaste, and is a filling beer.
