Appearance - A thick caramel note to it. It is almost opaque to the point you cannot see it. There is a vibrant red tone, almost a caramel color. There is a two finger head; almost like a rich molasses.

Smell - Very overpowering, but not in an abrasive fashion. It warms the nostrils and brings home that Christmas feeling. Very festive with a distinct fruity essence. High expectations.

Taste - There is a powerful punch that comes with this bear. It overwhelms the pallet with strong citrus notes. So much diversity of flavors, it is baffling. Almost mystical. Truly defies logic.

Overall - Eerily drinkable, delightfully effervescent, there is no hyperbole great enough to even take a shot at this titan of a fermented beverage review. Legitimately one of the great ones.

So what do I end with after a Great Divide Belgian Yeti? Christmas in July tells me a Delirium Noel.
Wow. I am thoroughly impressed. It says its 10 percent alcohol. It's so fruity that's all I can focus on. Complex fruit flavors. Don't be afraid to follow an imperial stout with this one. Damn I wish I could tell you what fruits. Some people say cherries but I don't get that. Maybe fresh plums and dark grapes. It's unique but totally enjoyable. Get ya two. Drink one and squirrel away one for later.

Like all the Deliriums, this is a bottle that, once cracked open, is impossible to resist. It's like rushing to the tree on Christmas morning! Monumental, creamy white head. How to aptly describe this aroma, though? Spicy...dark..."vinous", as Michael Jackson would say. Beautiful carbonation, effervescence everywhere. Color's a gorgeous dark red, and the flavors continue to unfold. A constant, buy very pleasant assault, of dark fruit and spice. The finest thing you could put to your lips when the chill is on!
A dizzying onslaught of divine taste!
