Pours dark, reddish brown and clear with ample carbonation. A big, puffy, bone-white head turns to seafoam while leaving big patches of lace and a syrupy film on the Delirium Noel snifter.

Aromatic, dark holiday spices with dried Mediterranean fruits, cherries, and a light yeasty funk.

The flavor is similar to the nose, though lacking progression and depth. Alcohol is sharp without heat adding some sweet rum undertones. Warms well.

A luscious, medium body with fine carbonation. Alcohol punctuates with warmth.

Delirium Noel lacks the “wow” factor and special character of other Christmas beers. However, it is a good sipping beer to enjoy while reading or listening to music.

Poured this one into a cognac sniffer, and it produced a two finger thick off white head, and the body is dark ruby red in color with a strong haze.

The aroma is cola, sassafras, metallic, and maybe a little bit of pair is in there too.

The taste is pretty much on par with the aroma, with the cola and pair flavors taking up most of the space.

Feels prickly with carbonation, a bit on the crisp and thirst quenching side, but with a mildly warm finish.

Overall a decent brew, and worthy of drinking again next winter.

Poured into a tulip. Nice dark red color, with a light ivory colored head. Good carbonation.

Pleasant orange smell. Also smell the yeast, and the high alcohol content.

Taste is different than expected. Floral, lemon citrusy, a little spice, and a little alcohol bite.

Disappears from the pallet quickly. Good carbonation.

Overall it's good. It's not a home run for me, and in comparison to the Tremens, this one is not quite there. Worth a try, not worth searching the globe to find.
