The Brewscale Score
APPEARENCE - 8.9

TASTE - 9.3
10 is perfection, and is almost unattainable. Anything below a 6 is undrinkable.
My friend Mike and I went to the beer store to look for new brews that we haven’t tried yet. One beer that I spotted was Delirium Tremens brewed by Brouwerji Huyghe. I have seen this beer before but never tried it. We bought the bottle as one to have that day.
Delirium has a nice golden body color, a clear clarity and moderate carbonation. It has a white foamy head that dissipates slowly and leaves a thin lacing on the glass.
The taste is similar to the aroma with those stone fruit flavors of apricots, peach that lends a slight sweetness to it. There are also flavors of candy sugar, slight raisin, and Belgian yeast characteristics. The finish of the beer has a white wine-like dryness that lends a nice closure to this beer.
This is a solid beer. Delirium will be added to my rotation as a bottle to purchase every so often and enjoy.
ABV = 8.5%
