COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle Conditioned.
Launched on December 26th 1989 @ 9% abv. Abv reduced from 9% to 8.5% in 2003.
The particular character and the unique taste of "Delirium Tremens" result from the use of three different kinds of yeast. Its very original packing, which resembles cologne ceramics, and the colourful label contribute to its success.
In 1997, Stuart A. Kallen nominated Delirium Tremens as "best beer in the world". A gold medal during the "world beer championships" in Chicago (1998) confirmed that worldwide recognition.

Ulysse (23) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 29, 2014
Fresh hoppy aroma. Light blond colour. Head abundant at first but doesn’t last very long. An unmistakable aftertaste which brings recollections of good old drunk times.

Pours an almost clear dark golden body with a medium head. Nice and rich aroma with tones of yeast. Also the taste is nice and rich with yeasty tones of malt.

AlainG (1242) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 27, 2014
C’est une blonde bien trouble. La mousse qui la garnit se résorbe en un mince voile. Les arômes de levures sont assez prononcés. Il y a aussi une touche poivrée, des agrumes et des herbes séchées. Un goût du vieux continent, qui n’est pas étranger aux arômes. Une effervescence assez soutenue nous confond avec le côté poivré. Des saveurs d’écorces d’orange qui côtoient des herbes folles, se terminant de façon assez inattendue et abrupte et pas des plus raffinées. C’est un peu "râpeux" en bouche. Version à 8.7% (1233-120914)

Icedwarf (338) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - SEP 26, 2014
Helder geel bier met schuim. Smaak is hoppig bitter en krachtig met sporen van zoet fruit en kaneel. Blijft lang hangen. gewoon erg goed.

chromeotaphor (35) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 26, 2014
Mistig fris fruitig aroma dat hint naar citrus. Champagne achtige carbonatie dit komt terug in de schuimkraag. Mooie geleidelijke fruitige smaak, sprankelend in het begin met een fruitige citrus afdronk die geleidelijk inzet. Romig en crème (droog) achtig.

Fashawn (94) - Montesarchio, ITALY - SEP 20, 2014
Ha un colore biondo chiaro coperto da una schiuma panna acida , non troppo omogenea e poco compatta. A tratti sgranata ma visivamente, nel calice, offre un bello spettacolo. Al naso colpisce per la sua dolcezza, delicatezza ma anche varietà, con pane e marmellata volendo aver fantasia, frutta sotto spirito e pesche premute, oltre a pere e coriandolo. Corposa ed intensa, alla dolcezza iniziale risponde il secco finale che rende giustizia alla birra. Molto buona, molto piacevole..
