Delirium Tremens by Brouwerij Huyghe

Delirium Tremens the beer and not to be confused with the alcohol withdraw induced delirium of the same name. Pours a nice golden straw color with a small amount of lasting bright white head. Very complex aroma; strong fruit and raisin, caramel and less forward spicy Belgian yeast character. Honey malt sweetness, fruit flavors followed by a bitter after taste with some alcohol character. All-in-all a very different different beer than your typical Belgian strong and I think that is what I like about it.

4 Stars.

Delirium Nocturnum by Brouwerij Huyghe

I have always wanted to try this beer based on the name and packaging alone, yet somehow I had never picked one up. Who doesn’t want a psychedelic pink elephant on their beer label? Pours a dark ruby red.  Tons of long lasting carbonation, huge head. Subtle caramel / toffee notes. Beer is so carbonated it feels like it dissolves on the tongue. Raisin, dried fruit, fading to a dry pleasantly bitter after taste. Overall very similar to last nights Corsendonk Dubbel.
