Delerium Tremens

Ah, the DTs, nothing quite like ’em.  But Delerium Tremens by Family Brewery Huyghe is something else.  Golden yellow with a fluffy head, there is a nice mild spice in the bouquet, cloves, and dry in the nose.  There is also a hint of citrus in there.  It’s very effervescent and a bit cloudy if you you por the sediment, which I do.  It is sharp on the taste buds, tart, dry, yet soft and smooth-textured.  It’s very good, but not the best Belgian Ale out there, especially at $20 for a 4-pack in Forest Park.  There’s a good alcohol bite in the finish and in the exhale, and it gets better all the way around as it warms.  90/100.
