Dark reddish orange color, definitely well carbonated,creates huge foam head but still remains fairly smooth and easy to get down. Aroma is yeast,dried fruit,malt and a little bit of spice. Taste follows aroma,just mildly sweet with a subtle bitter taste. An excellent holiday beer

in a large snifter. this is a model 2017 Noel.
Look: pours amber/brown with a frothy tan head that extends up about 2". unfortunately it dissipates to about 1/8" rather quickly. the beer is opaque (can still see partially into it but not across the glass). minimal lacing was observed.
Smell: Sweet dark fruits (plums, figs, dates, etc.) and estery Belgian yeast. Candy and caramel with holiday spices.
Taste: lots of sweetness from malts and candy sugar combining with caramel and spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. Dark fruit flavors are more subdued here. Bitterness balances well.
Feel: medium to full body. rich and creamy texture with very lively carbonation, pronounced astringency. Finishes with a strong boozy warmth that slams the palate hard and lingers.
Overall: a fun and pleasant holiday spiced Belgian. Definitely enjoyable at this time of the year and would probably be even better enjoyed in more wintery conditions.

Brouwerij Huyghe Delirium Noël, 10% ABV, 20 IBU. Pours dark brown with a massive four-finger cream colored head. Nose is yeast and fruit, taste follows with moderate sweetness, and almost no bitterness. Excellent mouthfeel, overall excellent.
