Pink Elephant
Where to Dig Up More About This Beer
DELIRIUM tremens
Brouwerij Huyghe
Melle, Belgium
Est. 1654

Brain Damage Quotient = 8.5 % ABV
Fluid Oz. = 11.2

Postmortem Brew Review
Almost clear, pleasant light golden color.
Yeasty smells, lemon, other fruit and spice like coriander.
Two finger frothy white head. Spotty lacing and tightly packed bubbles on head.

Sweet taste; dry finish with peppery, lemony twang.
Medium carbonation.
Light to medium bodied mouth feel.

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
The white, speckled bottle with rich blue foil neck wrapper, grabs your attention. The happy little pink elephants, dancing gators and balancing serpents keep you entertained as this delightfully deceptive ale draws you in. Of course it's Huyghe since 1654.

Soft bubbles much like those found in champagne, tickle your nose as the 8.5% ABV works its magic. Blissfully pleasant to drink.  It only gets better as it warms in the glass.  Fruity flavors, spice and other components are released to you tongue and nose.

Not too many of these...otherwise you will see 1:1 scale pink elephants.
