New Brew Thursday: Delirium Floris Apple
Delirium Floris Apple
Melle, Belgium 

Review: This Lambic-esque Belgian noses like a cross between an apple cider and a soft pale ale. A touch of sweetness and a slight sour finish are almost rounded out with acidity. Unfortunately, for me it more or less falls flat. One note.

Brought to you by the glorious makers of Tremens and Nocturne, I was expecting a bigger beer – something to sink my teeth into. This just isn’t that. I think I’ll stick with either a sincere Lambic from another brewer or with a classic Pachyderm on Parade.

Bottom Line: Meh. Unless you’re trying to introduce someone to beer for the first time, or want something apple-juicy for a hot day, I wouldn't recommend it.

Beer Geekery:
  • BREWER: Brouwerij Huyghe
  • STYLE: Fruit Beer (Wheat beer brewed with apple juice)
  • PLACE: Melle, Belgium
  • BOOZE: 3.6%

Where did I get it?  Crystal City Wine Shop
What's the damage?   High Priced, per 4 pack
