Beer & Cheese Pairings: Brouwerij Huyghe’s Delirium Tremens

Beer & Cheese Pairings: Brouwerij Huyghe’s Delirium Tremens

Monday, July 6th, 2015

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!


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.



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.


Make sure to tune into the next installment of Beer & Cheese Pairings!
