Tonight I’m sitting down with a bottle of Delirium Noel and watching MacGruber. Yes, MacGruber. It’s terrifically awful.
I’ve been reading plenty of reviews for this beer over this holiday season and I’m stoked to give it a go.
It’s a reddish color, quite similar to a red ale (at least in looks). Very little head – almost flat. Love the Delirium bottles. Only second to the Double Dead Guy bottle.
The Noel is sweet at first and finishes tart. Reminds me a bit of an unripe apple. Throw in some caramel flavors, and you sorta have a tart caramel apple.
The one thing I’m taking issue with is the lack of carbonation. Something is missing here and it disturbs me.
Overall, this brew was a bit of a letdown. I’m just not digging anything about it. Maybe it will grow on me as I finish this GIANT bottle all by myself…
