Delirium Brewery - Delirium Red
That's right I'm back for more from the sour producing Belgium based breweries just to give things another chance. The Duchesse De Bourgogne wasn't my thing, but I'm nothing if not dedicated to the beer tasting cause so i went for the strong fruit beer this time.
Hard day at work that didn't stop, but was nice and sunny so that added a bit of pep to my step. And although a stressful phone call got me down on the way to the station, I still believed in sour beer redemption! Train was a bit early which was a bonus, so I sat back and got my @beercraft bottle opener out and cracked her open.
First smell was really fruity and full of rich vibrant smells with just a touch of sourness at the end. My first taste was with trepidation, but also hopeful anticipation....and bugger! Not for me I'm afraid to say, just too much of a sour cherry vibe, but if you like that kind of taste then boy is this something you should fight to grab hold of. Reminded me of a @drpepper, so once again go for this if that floats your boat. There's a highly sweet rush of fruity flavours that are taken in with the first swig, which I enjoyed. Then, the strong and full sour cherry hit comes in before ending on a sour edge to the back of your tongue. I'm definitely glad that i gave it a second chance, and for those cherry sour lovers out there, you'll really think it does the job.
43 minutes in and one station before home. Hope you've all had a half-decent hump day and I'll catch you tomorrow.
