Huyghe's newest release Deliria is an all female team brewed beer. No bottle information. Brewed in the style of a Belgian strong Pale Ale. Available in 750 ml. bottles.

Poured from a 750 ml. bottle to a tulip glass. Served above 56º fahrenheit.

(Appearance) Pours a crisp stiff foam off white head over a straw champagne body. Clarity is very high and carbonation is plentiful and vivacious. Retention is excellent, lacing is moderately thick and patchy. 4.5

(Smell) Cracker pilsner malts with a touch of bread and grain malt for body. Belgian and farmhouse strain yeast characteristics with notes of peppery spice, floral character, cider fruit and lemon peel. Grassy hop notes are subtle and bring with them an equally tempered bitterness. Potency is moderate. 4

(Taste) Clean, under sweet cracker malt base with a matching spicy and grassy hop bitterness to pair. The yeast profile lends notes of lemon rind, mild peppercorn and white grape to a very dry, champagne-like finish. 3.75

(Mouthfeel) Texture is clean, dry, moderately acidic. Carbonation is full for a crisp, perky mouthfeel. Body is medium for the style, medium+ overall. Balance is very slightly bitter and acidic over sweet. Alcohol presence is low, and there are no perceivable off characters for a clean, lively mouthfeel. 4.25

(Overall) I'm no lady but I must commend the very skilled women that put together this fine ale. Nice and light, very clean and crisp, collectively a difficult beer to assemble without a hitch. Nice spicy and floral yeast characteristics in a mild mannered beer speaks volumes. Recommended. 4

Poured into a goblet.

A: Hazy straw color, with a bubbly champagne like appearance. The head is thin a bone white and disappears. No lacing.

S: Crackers, grassy and booze. A touch of white pepper.

T: Malt notes of crackers. Nothing sweet going on here. Citrus notes of lemon. Booze.

M: Effervescent. Warm booze lingers.

D: Drinkable for sure, though the booze comes through on the nose and palate. Drank this with a heavy dinner of swedish meatballs, potatoes, lingon and brown sauce and it held up well and was a nice compliment. Less champagne flavor than others of this style. Body is moderate. Not too dry, not too sweet.

Light golden yellow in color with a short head. Grass and belgian yeast is picked up by the nose. The flavor follow the nose as grass, lemon zest, belgian yeast, and and a mid floral bitterness create a straight forward belgian ale.

Light and very crisp. Refreshing. Easy to consume this beer.
