Beer & Cheese Pairings: Brouwerij Huyghe’s Delirium Tremens

Beer & Cheese Pairings: Brouwerij Huyghe’s Delirium Tremens


SACRAMENTO, CA

Welcome to this installment of Beer & Cheese Pairings. For this edition, I’ve chosen three strong cow’s milk cheeses to go head to head with Brouwerij Huyghe’s Delirium Tremens. Let’s get started!

BEER:

Delirium Tremens from Brouwerij Huyghe is a pale blond that is slightly malty with a nice touch of spiciness. It has a round taste that warms the palate and a strong, long-lasting and dry bitter aftertaste. This beer should stand up to these three strong cheddar cheeses.

 

CHEESES:

Mrs. Quicke’s Cheddar is imported by Murray’s Cheese. This traditional English cheddar comes from the United Kingdom and Ireland. It is made from Devonshire cow’s milk and is aged for 10-14 months. It has an extremely sharp cheddar taste that is accompanied by a very complex citrus flavor. It paired nicely with the beer, balancing its  fruity tones with the beer’s bitterness.

 

San Joaquin Gold is a cow’s milk cheese by Fiscalini Farmstead Cheese. It has a natural, thin rind with a tawny buttery color. It is mildly sweet and mellow when young and develops a darker golden hue and nuttier flavor over times. This cheese has a great harmony of flavors on its own. Unfortunately, the beer threw that balance off slightly.

 

Flagship from Beecher’s Handmade Cheese is a semi-hard cow’s milk cheese with a uniquely robust, nutty flavor. It is carefully aged for 15 months to fully develop its complex flavor and ever-so-slight crumble. It was my favorite pair of the day. The robustness of the cheese was really highlighted by the beer.
