Delirium Tremens, Brasserie Huyghe’s wonderfully full-bodied and feisty signature beer, is bursting with rich clove and pepper notes that, along with the characteristic stoneware bottle and pink elephant, make this one of the world’s most recognisable beers. The rounded body offers a lively carbonation that lifts the fruity, crisp, bready cereal malt, a perfect match for the classic pear, banana and clove Belgian yeast, to finish on a wonderfully dry, respectably hopped, and generously boozy note.
Brewers of one of the most famous brands in the world, Huyghe is a towering brewery with a reputation for delicious, accessible beers. Best known for its strong ale Delirium Tremens, which is so omnipresent that people think it is the name of the brewery not the beer. Dry like champagne but bittersweet and spicy at the same time, it has won best beer in the world as well as countless other awards since first being brewed in the 1980s and its success has made the brewery part of beer culture everywhere from China to Brazil.
