I can has Delirium Tremens?

Not this delirium tremens! But this....
deliriumtremens

What a lovely Belgium beer! Brewed by Brewery Huyghe NV, its packaged in a super funky "ceramic" like bottle which is actually plastic film and features its signature pink elephant. Now pink elephants... I wonder if I imbibe enough of these potent 9% ABV brew would I be able to see them pink elephants?

Its smells typically of a Belgium strong ale which is bready, malty and with plenty of yeast aromas plus a bit of that medicinal scent. Not one overpowering the other but finely balanced.

Tastewise its very complex with citrus, apple, apricots and hops bitterness coming in and out. Even with the high alcohol content, it does not have that sharp fusel alcohol bite like some other Belgium beer.

Not a session beer where you can drink loads of it but a nice one to end the day with. Worth drinking again!

I went to a beer dinner last month that featured 5 beers from Huyghe. The owner of the brewery was there to talk us through the beers we were tasting and tell us a bit about their history and growth; very cool event. If you like the Tremens, see if you can track down some of their Delirium Nocturnum, it's darker, more full-bodied, and absolutely decimates Chimay Bluecap if you like that style of Belgian brew.

/dev/nall: thanks for recommendation, lets see if I can locate it here in Singapore. Cheers!

noa: yes, one thing about these belgium beers is they tend to have quite a bit of unfermentables left behind, hence the sweetness. Can't have too much of it at a go.

It's an interesting approach. Generic Toprol 100mg commonly see unexceptional views on the subject but yours it's written in a pretty unusual fashion. Surely, Generic Ultracet will revisit your website for additional info.
