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.

craighill (96) - GERMANY - JAN 4, 2016
Very slightly cloudy, golden coloured beer with two-finger white head. Aromas are honey, apple, fruit esters. Some white bread maltiness and sweetness in the taste, but ends with a dry finish.

PiwaZaZywa (44) - POLAND - JAN 4, 2016
Lekki gushing przy otwieraniu, ale po przelaniu do szkła piwko wszystko wynagradza. Nie bez powodu stało się kultowe. Zapraszam do recenzji na: piwazazywa.blogspot.com

nybol (497) - DENMARK - JAN 3, 2016
En klassiker. Den har står smag af karamel og den stærke alkohol kan helt sikker også smages.

Jagienka (280) - Łask, POLAND - DEC 28, 2015
Beczka. Barwa jasno złota. Piana drobna, mała, zdobi szkło. W aromacie przyprawy "goździki" . W smaku słodkie, przyprawowe, goryczka niska ku średniej. Piwo wodniste średnio nasycone.

sjogro (1572) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 20, 2015
Doerak, Delft. Donkerblond troebel. Bananenschuim, koriander, kruidenmeuk zonder enige originaliteit. Zoet. Meh, niet voor mij.

ogre71 (234) - Utah, USA - DEC 17, 2015
This is good beer lots of malty sweetness no after taste or bitterness. Pours a nice hazy golden with 3 finger head which lingers lots of lacing.

Bottle - Cloudy golden colour, dense white head with good retention and fine lacing. Sweet grainy and yeasty aromas, candies, toffee, apple. Taste is sweet malty with caramel, bubble gum, stone fruits, some floral hop bitterness. Medium to full body, moderate carbonation, syrupy texture. Nice belgian ale, alcohol is well hidden.

Gubihumle (501) - Nørre Aaby, DENMARK - DEC 16, 2015
Flaske med små elefanter på. Farven er uklar ravfarvet med et meget højt skum Aromaen er mjødagtig og honning medens smagen er græs og syrlig. Sine gode karakterer og berømmelse kommer snarere af navnet end af kvaliteten.
