Delirium Brewery - Delirium Tremens
Long day of odd jobs that made time runaway, but worked behind the taps for a bit which was a break, then had Davin's recommendation of this beer for my tipsy-train tipple. According to the missus, this bottle looks like it's got salad dressing in it, but the blue label and pink elephant is certainly a pretty jazzy touch.
So, first smell was just pure sweetness and fruityness going straight up the nose. Following swig was certainly clean, but there was a certainly a depth there that probably came from that triple fermentation. (Also, a fair bit when over my face due to it being a tad lively!..) Once i mopped myself down for the following sips I actually enjoyed it, but not quite sure why. There were lots of additions I wouldn't usually go towards, including a peppery finish, but it just seemed to be balanced really well as an interesting drink. It packs a punch at 8.5% and I'd probably have it again as that little maverick drink in the cabinet!...
