S: Figs, breadiness, slight belgian phenolics

L: Fairly clear dark brown, light tan head with an inch retention. Amazing.

T: Light bready malt with some soft figs and raisins. White pepper comes next with a medium earthy and slightly herbal bitterness. Notes of dried ginger, eucalyptus, raisin. Finishes quite dry with a touch of residual spice.

M: Medium high carbonation, medium bodied, alcohol fairly well hidden.

Not bad, solid belgian ale with some great flavors. I still prefer Delrium Tremens to this though.

Poured into a Delirium Tremens glass. Pours a clear amber color with a large, lasting, frothy, creamy, beige head. Very pretty. Smell is tart cherries and yeasty funk. Nice smell. Head won't dissipate! Waiting...waiting...*Final Jeopardy tune ensues*...waiting. OK. Let's do this. Taste is leathery and doesn't really follow the tart aroma. Sort of bland and a lot less flavor than expected. Bit of fruit. Slight booze and breadiness. I just haven't been impressed with the Delirium line. Expensive, bland, and an ugly bottle to boot. Sad face, as I was excited to try it :-(

Pours a golden to amber - depending on the light. Good head at pour reduces down to a thin head just on top with a trace of lacing present. Smell is somewhere between a strong Belgian ale and a hint of sour. Taste is more Belgian ale up front but then fruit - fig, plum, prune - and Christmas spices take over on the back end. This beer should be drank on the colder side - too much sitting brought out less desirable flavors.
