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.

njnut (395) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 9, 2016
Poured from bottle into tulip a gold with white head that disappeared quickly. No lace just a ring. Aroma was a yeasty malt, a bit of hay/dry grass. Taste was crisp malt. Mildly bitter with medium malt sweetness. Alcohol pretty much totally hidden. Yeast lingers into finish. Very easy drinker. Well done.

LouisFelix (12) - Quebec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 7, 2016
Great beer. Golden hazy looking, with sweet, but strong taste of spices and fruits. Refreshing and easy to drink for a high alcool content beer.

SangreSani (336) - Głowienka, POLAND - JAN 5, 2016
Light gold colored beer with high head. Very nice, malty aroma. A bit fruity and vanilla. Low bitterness, medium to high sweetness. Warm in throat, highly carbonated. Light to medium body.

BenWesthof (195) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 5, 2016
One of my all-time favorite Belgian beers. Strong taste, though not too strong, and a very nice aftertaste with hoppy tones here and there.

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.

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

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.

Buen cuerpo, espuma larga, de muy buena apariencia. Sabores cítricos sin regusto a alcohol.

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