    Default "Delirium Tremens" Belgian ale

    This is my first attempt at reviewing anything, so, here goes!
    In front of me is a bottle of Delirium Tremens Belgian ale! White bottle reminiscent of old stone bottles, corked as most Belgian ales are, with a blue label with pink elephants, dancing alligators, and oriental style dragons! The beer is golden in color with a slight haze as it is bottle conditioned, and smells of fruit! The flavor is slightly sweet and spicy on the palate. this product is 8.5 % alcohol by volume. It is made in Melle/Ghent, Belgium by the Huyghe family brewery which has been in existence since 1654!
    Here is their website: http://www.delirium.be/

    My description in the flavor department is lacking I'm sure, but trust me this is an outstanding ale like no other you have ever had! Of course I say that about most Belgian ales!!
    Oh! I almost forgot, the price I paid for a 25.4 oz. bottle was $8.99 plus tax!

    I hope to review more Belgian ales in the future either in this thread or maybe in another! We'll see.

    Delirium Tremens is an outstanding, and quite potent brew.

    I haven't had one a a while, but from what I remember I'd rate it a 8.5-9

    I'd also suggest you try a Lambic.

    Quite fruity and delicious!

    Yes, but as with razors-the only way to find out for sure is to give it a try!
