How many breweries make a Christmas beer that goes off before Christmas comes around…? Leave it to the Norwegians. We had to give this a go; it smells like, well, smells like bacon. The body is incredibly smooth and rich with a sweet malty start and a smoky finish that lingers and tastes like perfectly crisped smoked bacon. Oh, my days.

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.

No bacon

BH get bacon from this, I don't. It's rich and dark, very smokey and toasty. High strength.
