On top at Delirium Cafe, Brussels, BE.

A - Like a typical tripel, almost indistinguishable visually from many mass-produced pilsners. However, the first glance appearance is where all similarities end. Head is strong as opposed to a light foam more typical of Low country beers. Beautiful light-gold.

S - Like pure happiness. Hard to isolate it when you're in the basement room of Delirium Cafe and inundated with cigarette smoke, the pallette of 2400 other beers around you and your loud and happy friends.

T - Where the money is made. Tastes of beer in its purest form, not overtly sweet or spiced like most wheatbeers, nor is it bitter and watery like an atypical pilsner. It doesn't dominate the pallette like a stout or strong lager, and in spite of 8.5% ABV, it's not strong in alcoholic taste. Rather, it is a perfect combination of all of the subtle nuances of hops and yeast without assaulting your taste. When bottled, it seems to gain a hint of alcohol taste that is noticably missing (thankfully) when on tap.

M - Doesn't require effort to enjoy. Effervescent, but not outrageous.

D - Perfect. I can't imagine a perfect day of drinking beer and not thinking of my numerous trips to Belgium. I'd plan entire trips to Europe just to enjoy this at the source. It's a life-changing experience. I highly doubt I'll ever rate another beer in my life as highly.
