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.

THIS KNOCKED ME...OOPS! I forgot, someone has been complaining about my caps...so now I will try to do it backwards ass, anyway this beer knocked me on my ass...and I loved every minute of it.

A hoppy, over carbonated belgian golden ale. Still a pleasure to drink.

To much carbonation, it would have been much better if I was not burping up every swallow.

Boring and very light. I felt compelled to purchase this because of the great name.

Strongly hopped and quite yeasty. This beer is different than I remember. Full of liquorice and candi sugar flavors.

Belgik (72) - Sterrebeek, BELGIUM - JAN 3, 2002
Medium-firm, off-white foam over amber-gold brew, with few but fine bubbles. Yeasty nose without much ado, after warming, some hoppy and woody aromas, a bit stinky, too. Strong hoppy and sour taste, quite unusual, with bitter aftertaste. Quite complex, really, but I didnít say I liked it! Seems rather out of balance, to me.

Yeasty, spicy, not as good as Noel or Nocturnum.

Typical Belgian golden ale yeasty bready aroma. Malty, slighty sweet taste balanced with a tart acidity. Good beer if they donít serve Duvel.

What can i say? Onces a very well-known writer wrote : íWhatís in a name?í This beer is not one our best beers, but I may say that the name made me curious. Every time ;-) A good beer, try it!
