Beer of the Week: Delirium Tremens


Delirium Tremens (8.5% ABV): This Belgian Strong Pale Ale brewed by Brouwerij Huyghe in Belgium pours a pale golden yellow with a thick white head that doesn’t last. The aroma is mostly spicy pepper, malt, lemon citrus with a herbal/medicinal quality. Tremens is highly carbonated, yeasty, bready, spicy and fruity – mostly apple –  at first with substantial bitterness on the back-end that creates a clean, dry finish. The alcohol doesn’t come through as expected; good drinking experience overall.
