Born in 2000, yet it is brewed only for the Christmas and New Year and complete the trilogy of "Delirium." His approach is already a superb warm copper color to red recalling "Nocturnum" except in its taste. At first glance, it hides its subtlety by a level of flavors. It be approached with confidence, with a tinge typical Christmas, sauced with a sweet touch, then covered with a bitter tone, without extension and then a strange sensation of freshness on the tongue. Finally, it frees itself entirely from the bottom of the palace like a pepper on a salad of the season.

    Pour it quick or it will foam out of the bottle. Nice cloudy amber color with massive foamy head. Aroma is pleasant with a average mouthfeel. Nice taste with a little cherry,spice and toffee taste.

    Acquired via trade with Chopz. Pours an average size frothy beige head and has a murky amber/brownish appearance with pretty big sediments visible. Some decent sticky lacing. Aromas of toasty malts, yeast, spices and dry fruits. Flavours are mostly dry fruit (plums, raisins) some notes of spices, yeast. The high abv is pretty noticeable, but is not really offensive, still quite drinkable. Has a dry finish. Full bodied mouthfeel. Great retention.

    Clear light brown, brown lacing, lasting foam head. Foam kept coming out of bottle. Caramel aroma and taste, some spice (pepper?). Think this bottle is reaching final date. (Velp 201508)

    750 ml bottle, 1 year old. Pours hazy ruby amber with a big creamy off white head that retains well and leaves a little lacing.

    The aroma is sweet bready (almost gingerbread) caramel malts with a some dark fruit and a little alcohol.

    The flavor is sweet gingerbread caramel malts and some dark fruit with some alcohol in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with smooth carbonation.

    Overall, a decent Belgian, but overly sweet and not too complex.

    A murky brown appearance with a beige head. Aroma contains some nutmeg, caramel, toffee, spices, and cherries. The flavor contains some nutmeg, mint, toffee, some bitter nuts, cherries, and toffee. The palate is on the thin side but that’s ok. This beer is very nice and hides the alcohol well. I can’t believe I’ve not rated this before!

    Deep amber body thick fizzy head quickly disappears and leaves a ring around the body. Aromas and flavors of candi sugar, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, and a bit of fruit. A well blended and easy to drink Christmas brew.

    I received this FREE in a holiday beer gift basket that one of my friends did not want bc the are not a fan of real beer. Poured a reddish brown color with a very small off white head and left little to no lace very similer to the nocturnum flavor was spicy with dark fruits a bit more fruity then then the nocturnum but a good holiday brew.

    Pours out a dark reddish brown with a small light tan head that lingers. Aroma is of fruit and spices. Taste is similar to nocturnum, but with much more of an emphasis on the fruit flavor. Good brew, but very similar to nocturnum.

    Pretty nice x-mas beer. But honestly hat was so different from their other beers??

    smells of sugar, plum, candy, cherry, malt. Pours Reddish brown with some head. Over carbonated with some tinge at the end. Flavor was very plumy, sugar, malty, figy. Not too bad but was hoping for more

    Every time I try a new Belgian, it is becoming my favorite style. The flavors on this one are complex, like a Trap...but maybe sweeter. Lots of sugar and fruit here. Could say almost overly sweet, but the hops at the end balances it out well. I was going to try one of the other Noel's, but wanted to get this cause of the holidays. Curious to try one of their standards now.
