Bottle (2011)

Thanks for the gift, NoSignsOfPain!

Clear golden orange and yellow with lots of floating, chunky sediment throughout. The head is massive, thick, persistent and bone white. It leaves the glass incredibly messy with lace. Gorgeous!

The aroma is a nice combination of juicy white fruits (banana, apple, and pear), a bit of lemon, a mild Belgian yeast character, and freshly baked bread.

The flavor is not quite as sweet as the aroma may have indicated, but it's plenty fruity. There's a nice combination of banana and apple in the forefront, along with a moderate bitterness, a mild Belgian yeast tang, and doughy bread. Incredibly drinkable.

Medium to full mouthfeel with luscious, delicate, full carbonation. A joy to drink.

This is perhaps my favorite Belgian strong pale ale.

I bought this gem by mistake. I wanted the darker rich and cream Delirium Nocturum. Boy am I happy. What a wonderful mistake.

Plenty of smoke on the opening and then I poured the liquid into a Belgian tulip style glass. Looks wonderful. Deep golden - almost orange color - that is so typical of wonderful Belgian golden type paler ales. The best part of the beer is all the stuff floating in it. That's so cool. Belgians know how to make a BEER!

This is not a dry style ale that I am used to drinking. This beer is complex, bold, fruity, sour & sweetness that is full of fragrances and flavors.

Good drinkabilty and lesser carbonation. Slides down too easy, if you know what I mean. 2 big THUMBS up!

What should you drink with Tremens? Beethovens Ninth last movement! Nothing less. This is earth shattering.

On tap in Waterloo tonight, served in a Delirium tulip glass. Clear golden colour with an impressive white head. Mouthfeel is slightly oily, but not as viscous as the 8.5% ABV might imply.

Aroma of oranges, cloves and the epitome of Belgian yeast. Likewise the taste is pure "Belgian". I find the yeast almost overwhelming, but lots of spice and fruit flavours as well.

Very aromatic and flavourful beer. A benchmark Belgian ale.
