Brouwerij Huyghe Delirium Tremens has a pleasing hint of honeyed tea

This beer does its best to communicate its power through a distinctive bottle which looks like stoneware.

Pink elephants dance with crocodiles on the label whose name suggests a potent beer lurks within. Yet, on first look, Delirium Tremens seems deceptively innocent. Pale yellow with a wispy head, it could be mistaken for a macro-lager from across the bar. But one whiff of its funky, hyper-hoppy nose dispels such thoughts, with smells reminiscent of medicinal bitters, preserved lemons and screw pine. A pleasing hint of honeyed tea greets the palate on the first sip, followed by a spreading warmth worthy of whiskey. Its mouth-filling richness of texture is leavened by frothy carbonation and a bracingly bitter hop-flavored finish. You'll likely be tempted to order another. But, before you do, be sure to leave yourself a trail of bread crumbs to help you get home.
