Delirium Tremens pink elephant tap

My favourite pours were La Trappe Quadruppel (trappist) beer, San Diego’s Rayon Vert, a lovely Belgian style pale ale, Delirium Tremens (a golden, strong ale with a pink elephant tap handle) and Palm Speciale, a light amber with a floral and caramel hoppy taste. Having lived in Holland for eight years, I’ve begun to realize how spoiled I was with regard to beer choice!
