A strong golden ale that may look like a lager beer but is in fact a complex pale ale. The painted bottle and the glass both have pink elephants and green crocodiles on, which is the result of drinking too many. A lot of warming alcohol flavours abound along with its sweet palate.
Named for “the shakes” that one gets after a heavy night of drinking, Delirium Tremens Belgian Strong Ale will probably do just that. Producing this beer requires three different yeast cultures and the result is intense flavours of honey, spice, pears, apricot, golden raisin and subtle citrus alongside rather complex aromas. Pair a dry finish with a solid bitterness from both Saaz and Styrian hops and this nicely-balanced beer is one you’d want to drink again and again.

Brewery Info

Brewery Huyghe was founded in 1906 by Leon Huyghe, although brewing has taken place in the town of Melle, East Flanders since 1654. Huyghe’s best-known beers are their ‘Delirium’ range, instantly recognisable from the cavorting pink elephants on the label. Their signature offering Delirium Tremens is actually considered one of the best beers in the world, rating consistently highly on beer rating websites.

Brewery Huyghe are kings of innovation - their slogan ‘you ask, we’ll brew it’ encompasses their no-holds-barred brewing philosophy. They complement their core range with fruit beers, white beers, Abbey beers and even gluten-free beers, although the pink elephant will always be a firm favourite.
