Appearance: Rich golden color with a lacy blonde head.
Aroma: This beer has the aroma of a bouquet of citrus.
Flavor: This beer is full of citrus flavor. This is a medium bodied pale ale.
Overall: This is a very good brew. It’s citrus bouquet, and champagne like bubbling carbonation flows throughout the beer. Due to the bubbling carbonation, the beer finishes light. The finishing bitter is reminiscent of citrus zest.

Have had the Tremens before out of the bottle, but I must say that the pour from tap in Brussels was damn good. It held up to my expectations as a representation of a strong Belgian style. It is what I would recommend to someone who has never experienced a strong Belgian style ale. I sampled several of the other Delirium brews, but I must say that the Tremens was my favorite.

Got this from some place.

From a bottle into a La Chouffe glass.

APPEARANCE: Pours a three finger, looser looking, foamy white head with good retention. Clear gamboge orange with higher levels of carbonation evident. Head fades to a full white cap. A half wisp remains and leaves dots of lacing down the glass.

SMELL: Pale malts, spicy clove, green fruits like apples and pears, green grapes. Some alcohol and yeasty spice notes as well.

TASTE: Spices up front with sweet pale malts and bread flavors at the swallow. A little empty after the swallow perhaps, with a medium strength aftertaste of sweet, bready malts, clove, green fruit and spicy yeast esters. Alright, but felt empty at times.

PALATE: Medium body and medium levels of carbonation. Creamy enough on the palate, goes down okay and finishes very dry. A touch astringent perhaps.

OVERALL: This is okay, but the finish wasn't all that spectacular. Gets a little too astringent as time passes and the flavor becomes a little bland. Decent, but not my top choice in the style.
