Roll Up! Roll Up!
Ladies and gentlemen!
For one beer only you can choose which review you like, short or long.
The Long Review:
Dalva is a Double IPA from Brasserie Thiriez, and it’s a mental monster.
It pours a stupidly deep amber with a light fluffy head and the stench of old apple cores, yeast and boozed up pears.
Dalva’s malt is a big fat gooey toffee apple wearing a candy floss wig, a red pepper nose and spicy earrings.
Out of its oversized biscuit jacket it produces hops.
Huge, angry, frightening hops.
Sharp scythes of lemongrass slice you and push Flying Saucers, tamarinds, birch bark, mandarin skins and sugared sour jelly sweets into your gaping wounds.
You see, Dalva is some weird manic French sideshow clown of a beer.
Terrifying, but mesmerising.
Short or long, the choice is yours.
