Visions of Pink Elephants Dance on the 10th Beer of Xmas

For the last several years, I've toasted in the New Year with a Delerium Tremens, the strong pale ale from Brouwerij Huyghe of Belgium. There's something about its luxurious nose and wine-line flavor that fits right in with a celebration. Plus, it's fun to pop the cork.

Delerium Tremens is a Christmas beer too. Its golden hue sparkles in the candlelight and bold taste matches plenty of classic Christmas meals. It pairs well with turkey, as well as glazed ham. It stands tall as a dessert beer: you can drink it while eating a ginger man one limb at a time. You can also nurse a Delerium Tremens all by itself deep into the evening by the glow of the Christmas tree.

The only thing it has going against it is its name: no one wants to be reminded of tremors that come with alcohol withdrawal while you're imbibing in the great depressant. 

Keep your partridge in a pear tree. Make mine a pink elephant.
