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.

NOTA DE CATA: - Color: rubio claro, efervescencia fina y regular que garantiza una corona fina y estable. - Olor: Ligeramente a malta, un buen toque de alcohol, picante. - Sabor: Se siente como el alcohol enciende la boca. En realidad, la lengua y el paladar se calientan. El sabor se caracteriza por su redondez. El sabor es fuerte, duradero, seco y amargo.

750ml bottle best before November 2015. Peachy golden with two finger quickly vanishing lively white head. Aroma of sweet fruits and some growing malts. Sweet fruity flavor with some typical Belgian heast to it. OK palate and rather good with moulles marinér.

Bottle from a bottle shop in Belgium. Fruity smell with almond paste. Similar taste with some pale bread and apples. Smooth. Well hidden alcohol. Nice!

Cerveza de alto impacto con notas dulces y un sabor característico resultante del uso de 3 diferentes tipos de levaduras. Esta Pale Ale belga tiene un color claro con una cabeza de oro blanco y espesa que se disipa después de un minuto dejando una pequeña capa de espuma en la superficie. Efervescencia excelente y regular que garantiza una espuma espléndida y estable. El aroma de malta es ligero con un poco de levadura y una ligera luz de frutas. Hay una acidez muy suave y un aroma casi metálico junto con un olor sutil a chicle, con un agradable toque de alcohol, picante. El gusto es frutal y maltoso hacia el final hay amargor de lúpulo , sabores a malta y especias, La sensación es boca es moderada y tiene una carbonatación mayor a la promedio. Parece como si el sólido trago de alcohol encendiera la boca. En realidad, calienta la lengua y el paladar. El sabor se caracteriza por su redondez. El regusto es fuerte, duradero y con un amargor seco. Acompaña bien a estofados de cerdo, salchichas picantes, chorizos y quesos semicurados. Filete de pavo con champiñones y queso azul.

KW92 (190) - Warszawa, POLAND - FEB 26, 2015

WYGLĄD: Barwa złota, zamglone. Piana średnio pęcherzykowa, krótka.
AROMAT: Warzywa strączkowe (groszek, fasola szparagowa), belgijskie drożdże, sporo fenoli.
SMAK: Słodowość, odrobina suszonych owoców (morela). Wysycenie wysokie.
OGÓLNIE: Wielki zawód. Nominowane do tytułu "najlepsze piwo na świecie" w 1997 roku okazało się niewypałem.

Une bonne blonde que j'apprécie de déguster de temps à autres reconnaissable de loin par sa bouteille si originale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Robe blonde or, belle mousse. Nez houblonné, épicé, fruité, banane, gingembre, citron vert. Bouche à l’attaque fraîche, citronnée, bel extrait sec, de la tension et une finale sèche. Un bière tendue, fraîche, mais qui ne me transcende pas.

Poured out of a 22 oz bottle. A straw colored pour, very effervescent. A cleaner taste than I'm used to for a Belgian. Almost like a champagne of Belgian beers in style. Lighter and carbonated. A fun beer but not the best in the world ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

reggiedunlop (3378) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 26, 2015
Pours clear gold with a medium white head...light soapy lacing. Aroma has light yeasty spice and leather...subtle clove. Flavor hides tropical fruit beneath earthy bitterness and leather...slightly clovey and peppery. Mouthfeel is medium and very lively with a dry leathery/earthy/rindy finish that warms as it lingers.
