Delirium Tremens

Delerium Tremens


Reviewed by: Oy Vey and Guinness Girl

Nationality: Belgian

Tastes like: St. Elmo’s Fire


“Nutmeggy. Very smooth. Like the Pink Panther, but pink elephants. Weird bottle! Reminds me of ginger ale: not sweet at ALL, smooth (how many effin’ times do I use that word? I refuse to say “lovely.” Absolutely refuse). It’s dry. Yet, the pink elephants are comical. A dry comedy. Something British, perhaps? Strange-ass bottle, really.” – Oy Vey

“I’m still trying to get rid of the taste of the World’s Rarest Beer. This is…I’m still formulating…we Southern girls, we tailgate with Bud Light and Jim Beam, generally. But this is what I’d tailgate with if I went to Harvard or Yale.” – Guinness Girl

“They’re obnoxious.” – Oy Vey

“Or I’d drink it outside in the fall at Georgetown. It’s St. Elmo’s Fire. There’s something endearing about it – the pink elephant – and there’s also something I never quite GOT. You’d never kick this out of your fridge, just like you’d never sell your copy of this movie.” – Guinness Girl

“This beer is as addictive as that theme song!” – Oy Vey

“That’s a good beer. It’s nice. Oh, look at the dancing, er, more like strutting crocodiles! What’s that on that ball? A triceratops? A dragon? I think it’s a dragon.” – Guinness Girl

Tastes Like:
High Fidelity

“Dare I say it’s minty?” – Oy Vey

“Um, I don’t know. I’m not qualified to answer.” – Guinness Girl

“Very clearly not an American beer.” – Oy Vey

“This makes me want to marry this beer. I’m serious. I’m in love with this beer. Can I kiss this beer?” – Guinness Girl

“The John Cusack of beers: accessible, no Chimay, but cute and stylish, radio-over-the-head, oh I love you.” – Guinness Girl

“Minty. Light and refreshing. An after-dinner mint. Or a mint on the pillow. Smooth, slightly sweet, fun, completely enjoyable and pretty hip.” – Oy Vey

“This beer knows all the good music.” – Guinness Girl

Nationality: Belgian

Tastes like:
A Room With A View

“Like Gulden Draak, but lighter and less hopsy. Perhaps THIS is the Lucy Honeychurch of beers. Is “kwak” what English ducks say?” – Guinness Girl

“It’s beautiful, though t’is a beautiful beer. And the name doesn’t do it justice, really. Lovely, but skinnier than the Gulden Draak.” – Oy Vey

“Who cannot love a beer that wears galoshes?” (Paddington) but a BEER that wears galoshes is cute…but disturbing. And vice versa.” – Guinness Girl*

*Yes. I know. This is when I should have stopped drinking.

Traquair Jacobite Ale

Traquair Jacobite Ale

Reviewed by: Oy Vey

Nationality: Scottish

Tastes like: Goodfellas (my favorite movie other than Office Space. This isn’t an Office Space beer, but believe me, we will find one that is.)

Comments: Lovely, yummy hint of coriander. Smooth, lovely beer all around! The best beer of its kind. Supremely, written, directed and produced all by the same Scottish people! Definitely a Scorsese: hard core but also has those unforgettable touching so-damn-true-to-life moments. I could drink this like I drink diet Canada Dry…all day long.

Tastes like: Damn, I still haven’t figured out what movie I love enough.

Comments: I can’t believe Miller Genuine Draft has the gall to call itself the champagne of beers. This is SO the real champagne of beers. Really.
