by Brouwerij Huyghe

The Delirium beers from Brouwerij Huyghe would have to be one of the most iconic of all the Belgian beers.  The pink pachyderms adorning the blue label and white bottle have been a feature of any well-stocked Belgian beer fridge for many years.

In fact the Delirium label celebrated its 25th anniversary back in 2014.  To celebrate, the brewers at Huyghe decided to make a special beer – as you do when you’re a world renowned brewery.

It was something of a surprise that the beer they chose to celebrate with was

an IPA.  Although given the high proportion of Belgian beer that goes to the US, and therefore the influence American importers have on the breweries, maybe there were a few suggestions from abroad.  I just thought it may be something a little more traditionally Belgian.

Nevertheless, Delirium’s Argentum is a very solid Belgian IPA.  It has something of the Delirium Tremens about the taste, with earthy Belgian hop flavours which are subtle but there.
