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.

A: Poured from the 330mL bottle into a pint glass. The beer is a rusty brownish red, hazy, with a large light tan foamy head.

S: Predominantly fruity and yeasty with some honey and bread in there as well as a bit of spice. This smells a bit like a dubbel.

T: Again dark fruits and a lot of yeast with honey. But there a big alcohol flavor here covered only a little bit by a mild spicy note.

Overall: Not the best from this series of beers. Probably won't come back to this one, even on the holidays.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a beautiful amber with a rich 1"- 2" white foamy head, and exceptional lacing.
S: The nose is light, getting some wine, figs/raisin, bread, and malt.
T: Tase follows the nose, with some alcohol bite throughout. Getting a little bitter aftertaste that is not so nice.
M: Medium feel
O: Not my favorite beer, flavors seemed harsh and underwhelming to me for the style.

Appearance was a lot of foam, exploded before I could pour, a bit like champagne with an amber color. Smell is cinnamon raisins with taste of cherry nutmeg that was almost nauseating. Couldn't finish it, gave to wife. She enjoyed it but I hated it and I usually love Belgians but every time I have a Delirium I regret buying it. Had the red and tremens, this is the worst.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured into a tulip T. Karmeliet glass (close enough to the Delirium delivery system)

Initial head is sublime, and I was about to give this a 4.75 for appearance, but upon hearing the fizz, I thought I'd wait a minute....disappointingly the retention was none existent, but the body was a lovely rich toffee colour, so a 4.25 it is.

Aroma is sweet and of a good malty quality, although you do get a hefty whiff of booze to boot.

Taste reflects the Aroma, plenty of malty caramel, a touch on the sweet side and bags of booze.

A little sharp on the tongue for the first few sips, the dry aftertaste makes you thirsty for more.

Overall a nice winter brew and definitely should be on the right side of 4/5 IMO

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a tulip glass. The appearance is a semi clear reddish color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is sweet yeast and malt. The taste is raisins and caramel malt.

Pink Elephant Time is a good time. It was the first time I had this beer and I thought it was very good. It was full of interesting flavors.

Look: cloudy amber to copper hue thick off-white head

Aroma: bread, raisins, yeast, and wine.

Taste: Dark bread, yeast, a little sweet, raisins, some wine flavor, a little bit like red wine glögg, not that boozy for 10.00%.

Feel: medium to full body
