Appearance

The ale pours a cloudy, ruddy amber with a thick mousse-like head of cream-colored foam that shows remarkable retention. Patches of sticky lace cling to the glass during consumption.

Aroma

The aroma is faint but pleasant, offering a scent of spices, citrus, and floral hops. A hint of booze appears as the beer warms.

Flavor

The palate begins with a fruity taste of pear and shifts to bready malt, spiced with pepper and clove. That spicy flavor crests towards a bite of grapefruit hop resin that’s mellowed by caramel. A semisweet caramel base ties the palate together.

Mouthfeel

Mouthfeel has a medium body and ample carbonation. The effervescence really shines in the finish.

Overall

The Delirium Argentum has an amazing appearance and feel. Plus the combination of fruity Belgian yeast and citrus hops complement each other well. This Belgian IPA is nearly as good as some of the other Delirium offerings.

Happy Anniversary

Delirium Tremens and its iconic pink elephant reached a quarter century in age back in 2014. To commemorate the jubilee, Brouwerij Huyghe crafted Delirium Argentum. Apropos, the name Argentum is Latin, meaning ‘silver’.
