Delirium Noël Review

Delirium Noël is a Christmas beer that may leave you seeing pink elephants. Cousin to Delirium Tremens, this 10% ABV beer comes in the unique Delirium white faux ceramic bottle with a red foil covering on the top for Christmas. And boy, do I like this one.

Delirium Noël pours amber with a thick foamy head that reduces to lace after a few minutes. The aroma of this Belgian strong ale is unmistakable Belgian yeast, sweet malts, and spice. It is sweet, with caramel, spice, bread, and a touch of dark fruit notes. There is a lively mouth-feel from the carbonation, and just a bit of alcohol burn on swallowing.

Brouwerij Huyghe in Melle, Belgium makes Delirium Noël with several different labels. Most have a me on a sleigh leading a team of elephants instead raindeer, which is silly, really, because everyone knows elephants can’t fly.

    While it's difficult to picture Santa as a young man, he was once. He met the future Mrs. Claus one snowy night when she offered him a winter ale that she brewed herself. It was love at first sight - for both the Mrs. and her winter ales. With Santa's growing fame, his favorite brews became named after his favorite day - Christmas. Santa now travels the world each year to spread the joy that began in a stable in Bethlehem two millennia ago.
