Here's the skinny: me and my buddy TKing rolled into these Delirium Tremens joints one night or three in Brussels. Only I don't remember because I suffer from the real thing and wasn't impressed. I do remember there was one passable young thing tailing us in the rain. I wanted to slip her the fat man. TKing wasn't buying into it -- he was in it for the beer. She followed us in these high clog heels in the rain till we got to a square and she finally gave up. She was one of these smart phone addicts and decided some bald bouncer she once knew was more reliable than us. So she bailed, my balls wailed, and less than ten seconds later - by magic! - TKing pulled back the curtain and there was the Delirium Tremens camp, on the outskirts, one of the peripheral establishments.

I drank that sumbitch and promptly forgot it. I didn't see any label, so couldn't commit it to memory. Besides, pink elephants and shit don't write to my psyche too much.

Fast forward to two years later (two?). I'm rollin' down the street with a bottle in each pocket in some sunny burb in Sicily at 1 in the afternoon. I'm stalking these hot 20-something backpacking girls, and I'm thinking: me and these Delirium Tremens (two in each pocket) are going to roll these girls, if only I can find 'em.

This is the way of things, my friends! This is the way of things. Delirium comes in these nice ceramic-looking bottles with a variety of pink elephants on the label that put you off. A glass is definitely required. Otherwise, you'll be pulling into your mouth these soft, little yeast chunks that can only remind you of the things that go on in your girlfriend's body that she doesn't want to tell you about.

Nonetheless, it's about the only thing I have to drink around here. Rochefort's all sold out. This Delirium -- the most important thing to know about it is that it has a bitter aftertaste. Not nearly as bad as those peculiar bitter beers you can buy in Belgium -- the name of the category escapes me. But there's something of the same spirit in it. A bit of bitter, a bit of sour. You can still use the bottle as a weapon, though -- lob that bottle right and you can knock out any policeman. Let 'em run, let 'em chase you in the rain.
